Happy New Year's Eve!

My favorite christmas gifts

Elijah picked out this beautiful necklace for me.
Isaac picked out this pumpkin pie scented soap for me. 
Seriously both are so awesome and so are my 
wild things.

random update

I have always loved Christmas but I love it even more now that I have kids of my own. The wild things are so excited! We went to breakfast with Santa last week. Elijah asked for a dart gun "you know the kind that shoot arrows and make animals go to sleep!".   That is so not happening.  Isaac asked Santa who Santa's mama was. I feel that is a very valid question.
The sad news is Elijah has figured out that "Santa is just a regular guy wearing a suit". He thinks his Auntie Laura and Nana bring the presents over. He is smart so I am not surprised that he figured that out so quickly. Once one of the kids know Santa is not real all the kids know. I never believed in Santa I had too many older siblings.
I have been taking the boys to mass. We decided to get them baptized in the Catholic church. Sam and I aren't religious but we decided they need some kind of religious foundation. I am so glad mass is only an hour long, Elijah and Isaac do not sit still!!!
Captain is three months old! It has gone so quickly. He is the fattest cutest baby. He is aware and happy. He sleeps for six hour stretches at night and then wants to feed for an hour.
I keep thinking about all those kids in Connecticut. My heart just breaks for everyone involved. All those lives lost and all those kids that had their innocence stolen from them. I keep reminding myself that life changes in an instant, I have to be grateful for the goodness I have and I have to make sure I live my life making positive changes.
I take my job as a mama very seriously. I want my boys to have a good childhood, I want them to have manners and to be considerate. I want them to grow up and be happy whole men. I know that all of that  starts at home. I want so badly to protect them from the world and all bad stupid things people do but I know I can't so I let them know they can survive anything and that I always have their backs.
Okay enough randmness for now!
