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!

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).

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.

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!
There will be a post coming soon of pictures from Eversons camera!

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.

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.

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!
Everson and Canon trick or treating at the first two houses of the night.
