The laundry did not happen last night. But the good news is I stayed up way too late making my first family movie. **All clips (yes even the stretched out wonky ones) were taken on my iphone and iMovie was used to create the magic.
The boys think they are now famous movie stars. And I'm not telling them otherwise. That's called bribery folks. Movie stars let their mom take as much video as she wants to. And they don't cover their faces or pick their underwear out of their bottoms. (yes that did happen but didn't make the final cut) We're still working on our "movie star" etiquette. Things like this take time people.
The holidays are simply my favorite time of the year. And as the boys grow older I find myself falling in love with their awe and excitement and watching the sparkle in their eyes as each new day of the season unfolds. Thanksgiving was spent lounging around with family and eating way too much.

We visited the Christmas tree farm on Saturday and I think Isaak asked us at least 10 times if it was indeed Christmas time.
We even visited Santa Claus, who while waiting for the photographer to get ready, kept prodding both boys to tell him all of the things they wanted for Christmas. When they each would name one item, he'd ask, "What else?" over and over. C'mon Santa!
Gentry is full of curiosity noticing that Santa's beard was just a bit shorter this year and asking things like, "Why on earth would some of my friends think that their moms and dads could be Santa Claus?" I took a deep breath, afterall 6 years is too young not to believe! He then followed up by exclaiming, "I heard the reindeer on the roof last year mom, so I just know that he's real." Phew. The rest of the weekend we spent digging out Christmas decor, hanging lights, trimming the very prickly tree, making big messes, and ignoring the heaping pile of laundry that never seems to go away. Maybe I'll get to that tonight. Probably not.
