Thanksgiving 2016

We spent our Thanksgiving down in Orange County at the beach!  It was a whirlwind of a weekend but we wouldn't have had it any other way!

I'm pretty sure this was Wyatt's first visit to the ocean...he loved it!

Funny story on Santa.  Every year, we try to see Santa and Ethan wants nothing to do with him.  Wyatt doesn't either, which is why he is not pictured above.  I thought maybe, just maybe, Ethan would finally be into meeting him this year since he's starting to understand the whole concept behind Christmas and Santa.  Well, he wasn't having it and I told him he had to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas so he knew what to get him.  After many tries and on our way out, Ethan finally gave in and said he would do it.  He told Santa he wanted a Star Wars watch and that was that.  Until...we got outside of Santa's house and Ethan had a full-blown, fall to the floor, unconsolable meltdown.  He was under the impression that if he told Santa what he wanted, that he would get it, right then and there.  Oops!  We definitely should have clarified!  Have we ruined him for life?!  ;)

After Thanksgiving, I reunited with my girlfriends from high school and their fun! 

19+ years of friendship and counting!

My handsome brothers and their better halves!  ;)

Our last morning, we went to my dad's to celebrate an early Christmas...the boys LOVED opening their gifts, eating chocolate chip cookies and wearing their new Christmas pajamas!

I hope you had a great weekend too!
