Auntie Peta Arrives!

Well, it has been a few weeks already, but we’ve been having so much fun, we really have not had time to blog.  Auntie Peta got here just after Thanksgiving and we’ve had a great time with her, and Daddy even got a week off for us to explore a bit of Florida with her, too.  Here are a few highlights in photos.  The boys are enjoying jumping all over Peta…although I think she’s learned that they are a heck of a lot heavier than they were the last time she visited a year ago.

Click HERE for last Thanksgiving.

Here’s a quick view of our ride to the North Pole on the Polar Express – how fun, but how cold???!!!??? The boys also got to play on some bouncy houses, their newest obsession!

Here are a few photos of the boys’ first trip to the Magic Kingdom, thanks mostly in part to another free pass from Miss Stacy – you rock!!!  The boys did great for being there all day…we even slipped over to Epcot for a few hours, and their favorite part of the day was the Spaceship Earth ride.  Being a Space Camp alum, I LOVED that they were hooked on space, too!!!! The fireworks were not their fave, but we all loved the view of the castle in lights with fireworks overhead.  We are still kids, after all!

 

While Auntie Peta, Daddy and Gus were shopping, Raleigh and I stepped out for fresh air – hello claustrophobia!  The dance competition in Downtown Disney was just beginning, and here was the result…enjoy the videos.  Yes, Raleigh won, of course!

Raleigh shakes it.
Wait…they’re clapping for ME???!!!???!!!

In other news, we have the boys in their first pair of 3T pants.  The 2T jeans from last year are just too short, especially on Gus man.  Thankfully, Nannie and Poppy sent some Uggs, so we can hide the short pants in the boots, but today, they are styling some great pants that actually go past their ankles.  They are HUGE in the waist, even with an adjustable waist, but they’ll do.  Gus has officially jumped a shoe size.  He is now measuring an 8.5; whereas, in August, he was still in size 7.  Raleigh, he is at a 7.5, but I know he is about to sprout up too!  They are both tall enough to ride the roller coaster at Busch Gardens in the Elmo section, and they have done so a few times already with Auntie!
