staying busy and having FUN before 2012!

We had to take the boys to see Alvin and the Chipmunks, Chip wrecked!  They watch the first two chipmunk movies A LOT, so we knew this was a must-see!  They did great and loved it...and I can't believe Justin sat through the entire movie without moving, except for some occasional dance moves with his Momma!  That's the best part about the chipmunk movies...there's always great dance music, so you can find Mommy dancing all over the house when we watch them!!! 
 Oh I am going to embarrass them SO much as they get older, huh?  OH WELL!!!

We hadn't been to Chuck E Cheese in years but over the break we had not one, but TWO birthday parties with this furry guy!  They had fun playing skeeball and basketball, but little brother DOES NOT like this mouse AT ALL!  Last night, at one of the parties we had almost 300 tickets and guess what they won?  two, VERY tiny inflatable guitars!  Pathetic.  But it was still fun watching these boys play and have fun!

We had a fun caroling Christmas party at Devlin's house, a friend from Jake's school! Wish I would have taken more phone pics than just this one of them riding her life-sized horse!  SILLY BOYS!

They ride the four-wheelers every day, up and down the street and all over the backyard!  HILARIOUS!  These hats from MeMe crack us up...they look like pig tails!  You'd think a 2 year old couldn't steer this big 'ol four wheeler, but he does and he goes fast!

A trip to the Galleria and a ride on the Galleria Express choo choo train!  This was pretty cute and it rode throughout the Galleria and the boys waved at everybody!  The train wasn't made for 5'10" Mommy's because my legs were pretty crammed in there :)
 a picture with MeMe at the Galleria in front of the ice skating rink!  The boys said next time they'd like to try out skating!!  We told them Mommy and Daddy can't ice skate until after the half marathon, just in case I'd break my leg out there!  HA!  ...and I probably would have!
Fun memories right before 2012!!!  Hope you all have a Happy New Year, be safe and have FUN!
