"Trapped soap" and "Chobies"

I love the unique words and terms Nolan comes up with. Here are few (hilarious) examples:
- "trappy soap" = deodorant
- "Chobies" = Kix cereal
- "num num nums" = m&m's (and if you try to correct him, he'll tell you you're wrong)

Mmmm, Pesto!!

It's mommy's favorite, too!

"Nolan Alexa"

Nolan wrote "Nolan Alexa" on his new drawing board.

Christmas mess!

I think the kids might have been a bit spoiled this year.

Nolan's new Thomas hat

Nolan got a new Thomas the Train hat - even Alexa loved it!

Chillin' with Uncle Ben

Alexa was so comfortable and happy chillin' with Uncle Ben. It was actually quite shocking how long she just relaxed on his lap - she NEVER sits still that long. I guess he has the magic touch.

Happy birthday, Uncle Ben!

It was Francis' step-brother's birthday today (yup, a Christmas baby!). Alexa did not want to get off Ben's lap!

Strolling with the bears

Robert & Connor's fortress!

Nolan's scooter!

I think it's quite awesome!

This neighbor went CRAZY! The kids (and I) were quite impressed.

Christmas in the Park

Christmas in the Park in downtown SJ. Really awesome treat with the kids!

Alexa & Uncle Chuck

Alexa was showing off her super chic Santa outfit for Uncle Chuck.

Yamaka or Christmas Cap?

This Santa outfit is a bit small now - the cap is looking more like a yamaka ;)

Drawing "people"

I was so impressed to see that Nolan has started drawing "people". Yes, those circles with happy faces and legs attached to it are people ;)
