We went to cut down our Christmas tree this weekend.
 Elio had so much fun searching for the perfect tree.
 Kyle decided to bring his own saw this year.
 Elio helped put up the decorations and Nico helped take them down. Notice there aren't very many decorations on the bottom!

We are getting in the Christmas spirit around here, the house is decorated (inside) and we start the super cool advent calender I made tomorrow. 
Happy Holidays!

Oh Nico

I left Nico in the kitchen for a few seconds, I walked back to see this:

I guess he figured out how to climb up on the table.

How cute is this?

 Elio was in the kitchen playing with the fruit on the table, while I was in the dinning room talking to my dad on the phone. 
Elio comes out of the kitchen holding a bowl and it has a peeled and broken up tangerine in it. 

I knew I didn't peel it, but I didn't think he would know how. I went in the kitchen and there laid a pile of peels on the table.

I know it may not seem like a big deal to most people, but Kyle and I were impressed that he figured it out on his own.

It's a reminder that they watch everything we do,
these cuties are constantly amazing us!

Marisa and I took the boys in for their checkups last week.  Nico had his 9 month and Elio had his 2 1/2 year.

He weighed in at 22 lbs 3 oz an was in the 75% for weight. For his length he is 31 inches. When the doctor was looking at the percentile he said "he's off the charts". He was also very impressed that he was walking already. Way to go Nico!

He weighed in at 31lbs and was in the 75 percentile for weight. He is 37 1/2 inches long and in the 90% for height. He thought Elio was doing good with his speech and said he was looking good too.

 I always enjoy going in for their checkups and seeing how much they've grown.
Nico sure is changing everyday, and it seems like there have been some big changes lately. He's walking more and more. He's starting to clap, and wave goodbye to people. He fed me one of his snacks today, I'm pretty sure he says Momma, and I swear he gave me a kiss the other day.

 The boys have been really in to taking bubble baths lately. Elio loves the bubbles, he gets them out of the cupboard and pours it in the tub. We've been going through bubble bath rather quickly lately.
 Oh, and I gave them haircuts! Nico's hair has been a challenge for me. When he was born it was all dark. Then he lost it on the middle back and sides of his head, which was fine...until it grew back blond. Then it just looked like he had a messed up haircut. I tried to give him a little fohawk but it still didn't look quite right. So out came the clippers. I took it pretty short, and the back looks much better. I couldn't believe how much it made him look more like Kyle. So cute! Well after Nico got his haircut, then Elio wanted his like that too. So there you go.

The boys had so much fun trick or treating.
We met up with Nonna, Nonno, Leena, The Girlies, and some of the Moms from the MOMS Club.

 The boys sure love their Auntie Kellen, we had a great weekend with her.
