We All Need Pajama Day

It's Tuesday night and I hear the wind howling.  Tomorrow is supposed to be ridiculously cold and windy.  We lit the candles tonight for the first night of Hanukah which means the elves will be up to no good, or so Ariel hopes.  Aden is starting to think I might be somewhat involved with the elves mischief.  It's a bit of a bummer when the kids get older.  Those elves better think of something quickly if they need my help because I'm ready for bed.  

Last week, the boys had pajama day.

 They showed me their tree.

 Hey Rabbi Eric!
 The second to last music class of the year.  
 Eli was very into it.
 My boy!
 We all love Marilyn's lap.

 Having fun boys?

 Uh oh, where is she hiding?
 These balls light up.
 So let's turn off the lights!

Cup and Napkin

It's Monday night and we are hoping for a better night than last night.  Eli ended up in our bed and I ended up in Ariel's bed.  

Here is how Ariel views our family.
 On our way to school.
 This was in the twin's room.

 Pick up time. 
 They pointed out their friends.

 They had jobs!
 Ariel is a great mommy.
 The kids are pretty good about bundling up.

 Hugs all around!
 I need a hat with my name.

 The boys have graduated to a gym class without mommy and daddy.  Amy took these pics while she was watching.

Practice Our Prayers

Well that was an interesting weekend.  We had Ariel's play Friday night.  She did amazing.  Most of our plans on Saturday got cancelled due to a pretty unexpected snow storm.  All week long into Saturday morning they kept saying some snow but it wouldn't stick.  But stick it did, almost 7 inches of it!  The roads were a mess and it was cold and windy.  Seems a little early for that.  Today was nicer.  I went sledding with Ariel and couple of her friends and we finally got to celebrate Gwen's first birthday.  The Eagles capped the weekend with a huge win, now we just have to hold our breath about Wentz.

Last Sunday we had swim class way too early in the morning.
 It was Eli's turn.

Hey Nate?
 My happy boy!

 Eli and Nate on the boat.

 Fun time at swim.
 Eli ran onto the basketball court and grabbed a ball.
 Aden had a friend over and we played outside.
 All football all the time.

 The boys ended up watching football and looking up stats on their iPads.  Amy loved how they shared a blanket.
 That night Becky and Larry and the kids came for dinner.

 Amy made Aden read his prayers to them.

 Dress up time!

 Poor Noah.
 Eli escaped.

 Thanks for coming!
