Catching Up

Well, today I got a nap in, so that was a bonus. It has been one of the busiest Christmases I can remember. I am exhausted, and based on the boys chatter in their cribs, they are super over-tired tonight too. Last night they were out cold by 6:45 pm. Wow! It was nice though since we had great friends in town from Oz and we were heading out to eat with them at one of our favorite Greek restaurants. Although the service was a little lacking and the garlic was a bit overpowering in everything - very unusual for them - it was still such a nice night out. We have missed seeing H & Jane terribly since they've moved back to Australia for a few years. Matty was definitely the happiest since his family was here last month. Very good to see him in better spirits, particularly during the holidays away from his parents. It was so great to see their baby girl Ashley walking all over and terrorizing the boys. Oh wait, I think it was the boys terrorizing her.
The boys are really territorial right now, and we will need many more play dates at our house for them to learn to share their new toys better. It is sad to see their good sharing stage come to an end...I know it will come back, but wow, the "mine" phase coupled with the throw themselves on the floor and cry when they don't get the toy they want stage, is trying to say the least. Raleigh really started the terrible twos this weekend. Gus was such a good boy though, so it was nice to see they were willing to take turns with something...
Ashley is about as cute as can be. She was killing me with her "I'm a Little Teapot" dance. This girl can really dance and is so darn happy. H & J - you are doing an awesome job as parents, it totally suits you both:) Miss you guys already!

Here are just a few pictures from our weekend.













In other random thoughts:

We want to send our love and kisses to "Auntie" Kristy. Hope you feel better soon. Six weeks will go by so quickly! It seem like just yesterday that you were merely six weeks preggers;) Love and miss you lots! My mom and I cannot wait to visit you when little baby girl number two arrives. Stay comfortable and get all the rest you can, while you can!
Thanks to Miss Eli for the awesome books. We will treasure them always. You are such an amazing person, and I am so glad you came into both my mom's and my lives. XO.

The boys got a special delivery from Australia today with more books for the boys. Thanks so much Great Uncle T and Aunt J. So kind, these boys will continue to be well read!!!

Tim Tams are HERE! Yuppers, thanks to our trusty friend Amanda, who texted us the 'alert,' we now have two new packages of Tim Tams. Pepperidge Farms is making the Australian cookie here. These are no knock-offs either, the real deal. Yay! Now if we could only find Vegemite in Target too, we'd be golden.

That is enough random thoughts by Brooke for this evening. Looking forward to a much quieter week, and hopefully less snot too! Good-night!
