Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a nice Thanksgiving, including the babies at their first! We slept late, watched the parade and dog show, had a big kid bike ride and football game, ate a ton, and had two rounds of desserts of course! Drew liked the biscuit and turkey, and Evan liked everything, though he said the Mac and cheese tasted like sand. Or feet. But he ate it all, so it couldn't have been all bad! Here's hoping you had a great Thanksgiving! 

Hey, look! They're both smiling! 

Lexi wants pie. 

Adam thinks parade balloons are funny. 

Modeling our Thanksgiving hats. What, you don't have a Thanksgiving hat? 

Everyone NEEDS a turkey drumstick hat. 

Breaking last year's wish bone.

Three in the chair: a good way to snuggle in the evening. 

2014-15 basketball season

We love basketball season! It's the babies' first game on the outside, and they have high expectations after hearing all the postseason excitement last year. 

Apparently Adam didn't love the pictures tonight... Guess he would rather watch the action!

A classic Evan photobomb, with a perfect "mom look" from Sara! 

Mom, get out of my way- I can't see the game!


Sweet dreams, baby girl.

Today's kindergarten look is brought to you by one of the Preppiest Colleges in America!

Adam says hi! He was grinning like crazy, but is enraptured by the camera as soon as he sees it.

Halloween 2014

Despicable Me 2: Gru, Lucy, and our 4 minions! 

ToT'ing on The Lawn and in the neighborhood + ridiculous amounts of candy + amazing costumes + great friends + scary movies outside + a very late night = more fun than these minions could handle!

Thanks to Finn's birthday (and the talents of Maureen Chapman Boisvert) and Etsy, minion hats were a breeze this year! 

Though do you know how hard it is to find a floor-length teal trench coat?? I tried to make a passable Lucy with the next best thing.

Just beginning on our journey through the UVA Lawn - and our share of a reported $20,000 worth of candy being handed out. We definitely got our share!

Then it was back home to hit the neighbors' houses, plus movies in the driveway, with lots of hot chocolate and blankets. 

It was a no-rules, all-you-can-eat, one-night-only treat party! Finally they were totally passed out in front of the fire. though they did make it until 11pm, even with all the sugar coursing through their veins!
