Ended 2011 with a bang!

Steve and I both had the week after Christmas off so we did our very best to tire out the kids.  The surprisingly warm weather allowed us to hit the Milwaukee Zoo the day after Christmas.  The next day we hit the Museum of Science and Industry with the whole Wold family.  The boys were all about the trains there.  They also have a person sized hamster wheel that Evan managed quite nicely.

So Much Change in a Year

The boys actually sat on Santa's lap this year.  If I had to bet, I would have bet that they would start crying and run like they have the past two years.  I would have happily lost that bet this year!

Evan even told Santa he wanted something Dora (he still has a Dora obsession).  Sean happily took his candy cane and smiled.

Small Victories

It has been a long week back after the crazy week we had last week....  Evan shocked me tonight by asking for some of Gretchen's apple at dinner.  I know that seems minor but Evan has never really asked for a fruit and ate it.  He likes yogurt, he likes applesauce but he ate a raw apple.  I am smiling.
