Canon's 1st Birthday # 2!

We had some family over for cake and ice cream since it is Canon's official birthday! It was a very last minute thing but we are glad we did it.

The birthday boy enjoying his cupcake!
He wasn't getting messy enough for the cousins, so they decided to help Canon out a bit.

The end result.

Christmas with the Thueson's!

We were down at my parents house for Christmas this year with my whole family! It was a full house, but it was so nice to all be together. Christmas was a nice relaxing day full of good food, present opening, naps, a Christmas readying, visiting close friends and more good food. My Mom might have gone a little overboard with presents for the three grandchildren, but I guess that is what Grandma's and Grandpa's are for. Merry Christmas!

Everyone's stockings!
All the presents. Granted this was presents for 12 people, but most of them were for the three grandchildren! Next year, we will simplify present giving!
Everson was fun to watch open his presents and get excited about each one.
Canon had no clue what was going on and just wanted to play with the toys everyone else was opening.
My Aunt Tessie crocheted hot pad holders in our favorite colors!

Canon's 1st Birthday!

Canon and his cousin, Kyrie, were born 10 days apart. While we were down at my parents house for Christmas we celebrated their birthday's! My Aunt Margie made both the cakes and always does an amazing job!

My baby is 1 year old already. I know everyone says it, but the year went by so quickly. One is such a fun age. Canon thinks the world of Everson and loves to do whatever he is doing. He will even voluntarily sit in time out with Everson, even when Everson is in timeout for hitting Canon. Canon is such cuddly, happy, easy going, fun boy! Happy Birthday!

Birthday kids, Canon and Kyrie!







Christmas Eve

Just like a lot of families out there, one of our Christmas Eve traditions is to open one present. We were excited to have Everson open his new car track since we knew he would like it. Todd will admit this, he was excited to play with the new track too. I love having boys, they have all the cool toys!

Deda Santa!

Santa came to visit us this year before Christmas for a special visit. It is really too bad neither of the boys enjoyed it until Santa took his hat, hair and beard off to reveal it was Deda. Hopefully one of these years the boys will be excited to see Deda Santa with smiles on their faces instead of frowns. We loved our special visit! Thanks again Santa and your helper (Mema).

I was surprised Everson got close enough to grab the candy cane. It is an improvement from last year, when he wouldn't get within 10 feet of Santa.
This is right before Everson's lip started to turn out and the crying began.
Everyone was smiles when they were the ones wearing Santa's hat.

Gift Exchange Party!

Merry early Christmas! Our family gift exchange party was so much fun. Sadly there was no snow on the ground for all of us to go sledding like last year, but we still had a great time. It is always great to be together as one big family and just hang out and eat of course. Thanks to Greg and Tracy for letting us invade your house and everyone for helping with the yummy good. Bill, Kendra, Will, Kayla, Burke and Keegan were all missed very much! One of these years we hope to get everyone in attendance.

Enjoying each others company before present opening.
Gift exchange time!

The entire bunch!

Lucky Boy!

The other day we were at the Dollar Tree paying for our stuff when Everson started trying on sunglasses from the rack right next to the check out line. After I got done paying and we were getting ready to leave, he would not put the sunglasses back and told us he wanted them. We of course explained to him that he has two pairs of sunglasses at home and he doesn't need another pair. He insisted. Much to our surprise, the old lady next in line to check out thought Everson was so cute and offered to buy the glasses for him. She pulled a dollar out of her purse and handed it to Everson and let him cut in front of her in line. Everson said thank you and even gave her a big hug! What do you know, there are nice people out there still!

His Dollar Tree sunglasses! Sorry for the mouth full of food.

Everson always asks or sometimes just takes Mema's camera and takes pictures with it. It always made me nervous when he did this because I did not want him to drop it and break it. Thank goodness I do not have to worry about that anymore. Mema was so kind and gave Everson one of her older cameras that she does not use anymore. He loves taking pictures with it and sometimes he does get a good picture. Thanks Mema!
There will be a post coming soon of pictures from Eversons camera!

A pair of sunglasses and a digital camera, what a lucky boy!

Dora

Everson is in love with Dora the Explorer. Whenever he gets to watch TV he always asks to watch Dora. Everson has picked up quite a few spanish words from watching Dora like; con permiso (excuse me), abre (open), rapido (fast), de nada (you're welcome), and a few others. If I am in his way at some point during the day he was say con permiso instead of excuse me. Luckily I have also picked up some spanish watching Dora so I understand what he is saying. Canon has also grown to love Dora, but I think he just likes to watch TV with his bigger brother and could really care less what is on. They could sit there for hours if we let them.

Men or boys?

We had a few friends over tonight for kettle corn and hot chocolate. Yum! As the evening was winding down there were two discoveries made. See pictures below.

Four out of five of guy's had the white socks with the grey toe and heal part. These are the same kind of socks Everson was wearing that night.
Four out of the five guy's had iphones and they started chatting about their favorite games or as they called them "Apps."

Will grown men ever really be grown men, or will they always be little boys in men bodies?

More videos

I know Halloween is long gone, but I had to post some cute videos of the boys!


We went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium Halloween morning. Everson loves the aquarium and so do I. One of the new things there was a tank of sharks and rays you could pet. Canon tried petting a ray but his arm were a little too short and the water a little too deep. Everson was a little nervous at first to try and pet a shark, but he did end up petting one that was sleeping.

Before going trick or treating we had to do a practice run to make sure Everson knew what to do. Lola and Grandpa's house was just the house to practice at!
