christmas 2014

as the boys get older, i find myself trying to be behind the camera less and more in the present. so, that should explain my lack of pictures. of note- this christmas at 3 1/2 years old- luke fully understands the concept of santa, and trying to be good for santa so that he can get the present he really really wants. i was surprised that he knew in november the present he really, really wanted. it was a batman robot ($70- i include this, so one day if i'm looking back, i can remember the price of such toys). and he talked about this batman robot for almost 2 months, and we took plenty of trips to target to check out this said robot. and because he was such a good boy- whaddya know? santa brought luke his batman robot. 

the boys joint favorite present was a slide. this little slide was $30 from target and is the best toy ever. the boys play on this thing all day long pretty much in our house.
