For my birthday, my mom and the boys went to see the Trains at NorthPark. Zilla was so excited and ran around shouting MORE TRAINS! Birthdays are different these days, but nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids happy.

He was a big fan of the live jazz music at the mall

Day 352 12/21
I just like this picture because Zilla is using his left hand to pick up rocks.
One of the houses in our neighborhood does not mess around when it comes to blow up decorations. Zilla and I took lots of trips this week to play in their yard.
Once again, having a very productive nap time. But it was cute that he was reading.
We also took a trip to the doctor for Panini's 2 month check up! Dr. Mobley say Zilla was playing with these and he helped him make a "Doctor necklace" Zilla was ecstatic!
Christmas Eve Mass! It was mostly chaotic due to being in the overflow Mass in the gym. So hot, crowded, and too much stimulation for the kids to even try to behave well. Oh well, we got a nice picture afterwards.
When we got home, we baked cookies for Santa! During Advent (and we'll extend through the Christmas season) we had an Angel leave a piece of candy and a paper Christmas light with a Bible verse on it in a little ornament. We then strung the lights next to the tree. Zilla loved opening this each day.
Day 356 12/25
Merry Christmas morning! Here's our Christmas #2 with just our immediate family. Zilla got his football helmet. He had also asked for a snowman, but the one we bought off ebay still hasn't arrived. Luckily a couple of days before Christmas Zilla said he didn't want a snow man anymore. Though I don't know what we'll do with it once it gets here.
Christmas smiles from Panini! We also spent the afternoon with our cousins and Mimi for Christmas #3
Day 357 12/26
Boxing Day was spent at my Aunt and Uncle's for some more extended family time and Christmas #4! These kids are so cute. Panini is very popular.

This is my favorite Christmas tradition: Singing carols with the family for Christmas #5. Zilla was very impressed with Uncle Jon's guitar skills.
