I cannot believe this guy is 4! He is such a great kid. He is so full of life and the funniest kid I know. For his birthday this year we had a birthday party at Classic Skating. It was wild, loud, and hot, but he had so much fun!

Some things about Logan at 4:
~He knows how to write his name.
~He loves preschool!
~His favorite color is red.
~He loves to pretend and has a great imagination.
~He loves his little sister so much and loves to make her laugh.
~He is THE FUNNIEST kid I know!
~His favorite drink is Root Beer.
~His favorite food is chicken nuggets.
~He loves to have sleepovers at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
We seriously love this kid so much. He definitely keeps me on my toes and tests my patience, but he is the most amazing little boy and I couldn't imagine our life without him.

Our day started out opening presents. He could hardly wait for his daddy to wake up to open them. I guess Christmas 2 days earlier just wasn't enough.

He got a new camera. He loves to take pictures with my camera, so for his birthday we got him his own.

We did his birthday party in the Superhero room. He is way into Batman and Spiderman.

Lots of the kids at the party eating pizza.
Blowing out his candles. He loves Batman, but we could only find Spiderman cupcakes.

Zoo Lights

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Groupon for Zoo Lights at Hogle Zoo. It was so much fun. The lights were so cute and Logan even got to sit on Santa's lap. This will definitely become a new tradition. Hopefully when we go next year it won't be so freezing!

Santa brought two of his reindeer. Comet and Vixen.

Logan and I in front of the reindeer. I was definitely not prepared for how cold it was going to be. Pretty much right when we got there me and my sisters had to go into the gift shop to buy ear warmers.
Logan got a cool tiger light sword. It was so much fun taking him on this little date with my sisters. I was planning on taking Brooklyn too, but am so glad my mom offered to take her since it was so cold. She would have been frozen.

Logan sitting on Santa's lap. He was such a great Santa. We had to wait a while in line, but it was totally worth it.

Logan drinking hot chocolate. I never knew he liked it so much!

Thank you so much Leslie and Hilary for coming with us and to my parents for watching Brooklyn. (David was at bishopric meeting) We had so much fun and I can't wait to keep this tradition going!

L o g a n

Logan can now write his name by himself. I am one proud mom. Sometimes he has a hard time with the G, but I can't wait to keep working on it with him.

We had a very busy month of November. A few things that happened:

Brooklyn turned 10 months old.
Logan has been very busy with preschool, including a fun feast that I got to be a part of.
Black Friday.
Decorating the tree and house for Christmas.
Football games.
Playing in the snow.
Lots of shopping.

I know I say this every time, but I cannot believe Brooklyn is already 10 months old. She took several steps for the first time 2 days before Thanksgiving. She still will only take a few steps at a time, but is on her way to walking.
She says Dada...a lot. She loves her dad and always calls out for him.
She loves to eat. She likes to eat anything anyone else has.
10 Months Old
We decorated the house. Logan was being very grumpy this day. Finally, David said "If you don't stop being grumpy you can't help decorate the tree. His attitude changed right away. I am not sure I have ever seen Logan so excited for something. He was literally squealing with delight as we decorated. I think he will love Christmas as much as I do.

Brooklyn loves to stand. She will stand by herself for so long. We know she could walk if she wanted to, but I think she gets too nervous.
Brooklyn fell asleep eating her lunch yesterday. It was too cute to not document. And if you look closely, I did her hair in pig tails for the first time yesterday.
