Daily Owen & Bennett: 12.29.2015

On our way to the doctor for a follow up appointment this morning. Owen insisted on wearing his royals hat that uncle Jon gave him. So cute.

Playing at the doctors. B looked ok and the doctor was not overly concerned about his iron levels, so that is good news. Justin, however, is starting a new round of antibiotics. Good times.

This afternoon I got one of the funniest pictures I've ever seen. B has been vetoing any kind of sleep lately, so he decided to fall asleep standing up. Hilarious!

And tonight: being a total goof:

So fun coming home to these two goofballs. They are at such a funny stage right now!

It has been a pretty low key day around here...unpacking, organizing, store, laundry, etc. 

Bennett wanted cereal this morning because big brother had cereal. Ha! Nice mess....

After naptime the boys cuddled together for a snack and Star Wars, thanks to uncle Jon. 

We made dinner and then did another mini Christmas for the presents to/from poppy and I (decided this year it was not worth the haul to KC). Note: Owen was not injured in the below photo. It was his "owie." 

There was one present under the tree for Owen...a guitar that we also didn't feel like dragging across the country.

Boys helping poppy...what a fun night!

Last morning at grandma and grandpas called for a ride on the big boy bike! 

We got to the airport in good time with our million pounds of luggage (toys). The boys had fun looking outside at the huuuuge planes (per Owen).

Our flight took off at 5pm, which was a little scary....we weren't sure how it would go with the kids' nsptimes. Typically they sleep around 1pm Seattle time so this was WAY past their nap, and they hadn't slept yet (B did sleep for 1/2 hour on the way to the airport). So, basically the flight was going to be horrid or not too bad. Turns out, it was really good! Both kids slept for 2-2.5 hours and when they woke up we were practically about to land. They did amazing! We got gone to our house around 8pm and it was so nice to be home.

Merry Christmas! Owen was so excited that Santa came! Mom woke him up because I might have been excited too. Ha.

After traditional breakfast of blueberry coffee cake and sausage/bacon (and not so traditional tofu scramble), we played with santa's toys and then got ready to open presents (minus my dad who now has the illness). 

Family pic!

Jon and Margot.

Little ninja.

Times 2!

Kids got KC royals hats which were beyond adorable.

Another selfie!

This afternoon my uncle and aunt and cousins came over. Love spending time with them.

They got Owen a pig that oinks and walks and B was terrified of it. It was hilarious!

Checking it out...still not sure.

Justin and I packed this evening while the boys played and my mom ran my dad to the ER (same virus B and Justin had).

Owen and I snuggled and watched the nutcracker, too!

Perfect Christmas minus my dad being sick!

Merry Christmas Eve! We made pretzels, and cookies and brownies for Santa. Santa needs a sugar detox.

After going to the Christmas Eve service tonight, we came home, had lasagna and played with uncle Jon and Aunt Margot. 

The boys got their Christmas Eve present of matching jammies. Tried to get a picture but this was the best we could do.

Before bed, they left treats for Santa and the reindeer. 

And turns out, Santa came!

Little stud sleeping away this morning. Somehow he manages to weasel his way into our bed every morning around 4am. 

Good thing he's cute!

Owen and poppy wrestling... The picture doesn't do the laughter justice.

We were actually all feeling well enough today to all venture out! We headed to union station in Kansas City to see the trains. 

The kids got to ride a train. B was not impressed.

...And then B tried to dive in a waterfall. Literally. His shoes were soaked.

We also found a lego statue that Owen thought was super cool!
