Luke's 4th Birthday

Luke wanted a Halloween birthday this year because he couldn't get enough of Halloween! Plus he loves candy, so there you are.

He asked everybody to dress up, and all the kids did at least. Here is the best group shot I got:

Luke was thrilled with all his presents. You can kinda see Eric's costume here. He was Prince Eric.

We did some fun spooky foods and sandwiches, and a graveyard cake.

The boys got a kick out of Grandma Coles dressed up as a pumpkin, and we played that party game where you have to grab a paper bag with your mouth while standing on one foot. That is what she is doing right here.

Happy Birthday Little Luke!

Christmas Cards

So... I intended to make a Christmas card this year. I even went so far as to take a bunch of cute pictures in the snow, and loaded them on my computer. That was all on December 7th! I was on the ball! But then, as you know, stuff happens and they never made it public. So here they are now for you! No words still, but look how cute these pictures are!

Merry Christmas from the Coles Family! Let's all pretend this came in the mail... two months ago.

Christmas 2013

Turns out, this year I was a bad mom, and took hardly any pictures at all of Christmas. Here's what I got for ya:

I wanted some glowing tree pictures, which I think turned out pretty well.

Christmas morning, this is what we saw from Santa:

And here is the obligatory shot of the kid(s) waiting on the stairs. It is super blurry and I don't know where Luke is. I have no excuses.

Disneyland, Part Two!

Our second day, we went to California Adventure park, and all the new Cars land stuff was so cool!

Here are all the boys standing awkwardly in front of Mater:

This is the new Carthay Circle Theater restaurant, which we did not eat at because it is super expensive. But it was beautiful with the fountain and the bougainvillea trees in front.

Another new guy we had never met before is Dug from UP.

Possibly my new favorite ride was Luigi's flying tires, which I rode with my best buddy Ethan. He loves me, I can tell by his face.

Another awkward picture in front of Red.

I found this cool display of costumes from my for-the-time-being favorite show, Once Upon A Time.

Family shot!

Disneyland Picture Overload!!!

We decided to take a quick trip to Disneyland before Eric starts his new job and doesn't have any more time off. So we tacked on a few days to our already planned trip to Vegas, and flew to California.

Before we even went into the park, the boys were SOOO excited to be there.

We spent the first half day in downtown Disney. Then on our first real day, we went to the Disneyland Park.

It was not crowded at all, and we loved not being packed in or rushed.

We met Merida, who the boys call "Brave," and she showed them how to shoot a bow. They will still tell you all the right steps if you ask them.

In Tomorrowland, Will and Luke both virtually got to be Ironman...

...and we met Thor.

Here is a super awful picture of me and the boys in front of the castle. I really need a haircut.

Luke and Dylan were little best buds in the park, and held hands in a lot of the lines.

We sent the boys with their Aunt and Uncle on the teacups ride, because neither Eric or I like to be dizzy. Thanks guys!

And we sat and watched the show in the Golden Horseshoe, with a giant ice cream sunday, which I have always wanted from there.

Vegas, baby!

When we first got to Vegas, we found a limo driver who didn't have anyone to drive, and got the fanciest ried I've ever had from the airport to the hotel. I let the boys have my camera to take pictures.

Here is the wedding party, with all my cousins:

This is what my boys did pretty much the whole time we were there after the wedding:

And those are all the pictures I took in Vegas! We did walk up the strip to see the M&M store, the Bellagio fountains, Venetian gondolas, and Mirage volcano, but I only got some pics of that with my phone. There are a couple more pics in my instagram feed here.
