We got our first major storm of the year. Anthony thought it was the greatest thing ever. He took off his gloves and hat and of course started eating the snow.
I decided to take Anthony to the mall to see Santa arrive in a helicopter. I had been trying to explain to him that Santa rides a sleigh that his reindeer pull, but for fun he was going to ride in the helicopter that day. After seeing Santa arrive by helicopter at the mall, a few days later we were watching Thomas the train (pretty lame show... I'm not sure why kids like it so much). In the Christmas episode how did Santa arrive? You guessed it, by helicopter. What are we teaching our kids these days?
Waiting for Santa to arrive. I told Anthony to put his arm around his friend Reed and this is what we got.
Santa in his helicopter
Riding the train around the Santa exhibit was certainly the highlight for Anthony.
When Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas Anthony shouted, "an elephant." Yeah- not sure where that one came from. He never once has talked about elephants.

... and not just because she gives us lots of candy. My sister came out to visit last month from Florida and we had such a great time. She was a lot of help with the boys and we had so much fun catching up. We can't wait to visit you in January.
Michael and I are the proud owners of an Acura MDX. No more station wagon with speakers that don't work, bonking kids heads trying to get them into their seats, windows that if you put them down don't go back up, and no crazy rattle that makes people look at us as we drive by. If anyone is looking for a new ride, we'd recommend the MDX. It seats 7 and has every luxury imaginable.

So as of today I'm 4 days late and not the least bit dilated (ignore the little baby on the right... apparently when you go over your due date this widgit doesn't make negative numbers but starts adding days). My doctor gave me the option of inducing me tomorrow (Wednesday) or Friday but I picked Friday so that I can get some good shopping days in with my mom before Ethan gets here. I know it sounds crazy but we don't get a lot of time to be together so we're going to enjoy some fun girl days before the sleepless nights begin. My appointment for induction is on Friday morning at 6 AM... so it looks like our baby will be born on the 15th. We'll keep you posted.
