More Connecticut visit

I have to add a note about the above picture.  This is Ben's new found ability to continue to looking where he wants to (the book) while also looking at the camera (with his special eye).  If he understood this concept, he'd be the envy of his friends. :)

Christmas 2

We celebrated a 2nd Christmas in CT with Nick's family.  The boys had so much fun with their cousin....especially since they hadn't seen him in so long.

Ken and Joanne came over to celebrate as usual....no matter how many times we told him it was Ken, Lincoln was convinced Santa had joined us for the day.

Christmas Day

This was definitely our best Christmas yet.  Christmas magic was in full swing with a 5 year old who understood everything and 100% believed....and a 2 1/2 year old who will do everything his brother does.  The boys reactions were priceless....especially for their big surprise Santa had set up in the basement!

Christmas Eve

With about 30 second to spare before leaving for Christmas Eve mass, we snapped a few pictures in front of the tree.

Reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.  You can see Lincoln's attention span....

Boogie Legs!

My mom gave the boys Boogie Legs for Christmas on the morning of Christmas Eve.  The legs come with a book about a monster that tells them how to dance....not that the boys needed any tips.  The boys loved it so much, we ordered some for Carl for Christmas.
