Hair trimming time

The boys started to look like hippies so we took them to get their hair cut. Simon and Max initially protested loudly but eventually played along nicely. The end result – stunningly handsome

Post bath

Snuggling in a blanket after a bath is so much fun and Simon and Max agree.

Let it snow

It indeed snowed today and it was the first opportunity for Simon and Max to see and experience the big white beauty. So after their nap we bundled them up and Sara and I took them for a walk. It hadn’t snowed a ton but enough to get a feel.

Simon loved it

Max was a bit more apprehensive

They walked with Sara across the bridge

Simon conquered the snowy steps

And Max also got to the top

Afterwards it was time for warm hot chocolate

Christmas 2013

It was a very busy time for the boys at Christmas time and now we finally have time to update this blog.

We drove to Columbia, SC a few days before Christmas and stopped at a Cracker Barrel for lunch

Followed later by a very messy and fun dinner at GiCi’s house

One on one time with GiCi

Our annual Christmas card was meanwhile well received

One of the boys tried to taste this mandarin

The anticipation was big, but both boys were pretty much hands off until told otherwise

20140103-133152.jpg

But finally the big unveiling at GiCi’s house

So much joy and so many toys

The blanket from Granddaddy and Dorothy found Simon well

Hard at work

Everybody was busy

A bit later at Opa and Mimi’s house a bit of peace and quiet while the boys were napping and adults exchanged gifts.

20140103-220831.jpg

But before too long, more gifts for the boys. Including the very popular suitcases from Opa and Mimi.

We also went to the zoo the day after Christmas

20140103-221452.jpg

Lots to see and explore

20140103-221605.jpg

Wow, they are big

20140103-221802.jpg

Good times with the giraffes

Santa also visited the boys right in the new year and brought them a kitchen

20140103-222016.jpg

And the kitchen was well received the next morning

Melon slicer

Simon is quite the wizard with the knife and is very proud of his slicing skills.
