Magic House - Last Chance toe see Curious George

Glass Balloons in the entry of the Magic House

Abe has been asking for months to see Curious George at the Magic house one more time before he goes on vacation, so in the last week of the exhibit we went with our friends Shanna, Aiden Reese, Evie & Noah.  We had a great time and the boys were exhausted by the time we left (Just the way I like them:)).

George & Jude (not sure which one is more mischievous)

3, 2, 1, blast off!

May I help you?

going up?

President Rappaport?

Does he really need this?

Science Center Here We Come!

Well as we near the end of our Science Center Membership (and it is smoking from all the use) we went to see the Planeterium with our friends Shanna, Aiden & Reese and we unexpectedly ran into our friend Erin with her kids, Maddoc, Kennedy, Hennessey, Lochlan, and Rafferty (Teaghan was at home).  We really never venture over there so we decided to see Mr Hubble's Universe (a movie made for older kids for sure) and take in the fun stuff on the bridge.  They had a great time playing with the Legos in the room at the movie and were exhausted when we left.  Thanks to our friends for a great day!  Hopefully we can get them to go see an IMAX movie this week with us.

Checking out the traffic below on the bridge

Look Abe the cars are going fast!

What a cutie!

This year for New Year's Eve we have a few friends over for some food and fun.  Shanna & Darryl Gorley and Justine Sweeney & Michelle Maul came over with their children.  6 adults and 6 kids.  The kids played with every toy in the closet and the basment, watched a couple movies and stayed up until after 1AM!  The parents starey up past 10PM!!!  YEAH!!!  Quite a feat over the past few years.  We had some great food, played Cranium and had a blast.  Shanna and Darryl had to act out milking a cow, Justin and Michelle hummed a few tunes and Brian and I were the masters at drawing and guessing our clues.  Sahnna & Darryl were victorious but I think a good time was had by all.

Focus.  Shanna & Darryl get ready to rumble

Happy New Year Everyone! 
Here's to a great 2010!

Christmas Fun!

Better late than never.  From Mid December to this past weekend it has been a crazy busy time for us.  Four holidays, 1 birthday, and a trip to Philly, PHEW.  I posted about Hanukkah and Jude's 2nd birthday.  Here is the lowdown on Christmas.  We went to my Uncle Charlie & Aunt Amy's house on Christmas Eve.  It was terrible weather.  It rained hard the whole way there (If it had been cold enough we would have been burried in snow).

The boys had a wonderful time playing with all their cousins.  We had a good time talking with all our Aunts, Uncles and older cousins.  Truth be told I can not wait until Abe and Jude a a bit older so I can really enjoy family parties again without tracking them and cleaning up their messes the whole time.

Christmas Day was fast a furiuos until abotu 11 am and then it became a very relaxing day.  We spent the night at my parents house (as we do every year) and Santa brings everything there.  Dawna and her family came over for a couple hours before going to Jon's family festivities.  All day the boys played with, and fought over their new toys.  Eight million toys and they still want to play with the same thing!  Finally we ate dinner with my parents (Thanks mom for making Brusaloni) and headed home. 

My grandparents looked elegant as usual

My parents and Tony had a good time.

Everyone in Dawna's family was healthy and happy

Our family picture did not turn out so well but here it is anyway.

Jude was festive

Abe was exhausted (This was him at 8AM!  I asked if he wanted to see what Santa brought and he replied  "I want to sleep Mommy") 

Dad got some new underwear (curtosy of BJ)        Dawna, Laurie & I spent some time together

All in all it was a great holiday, we missed our family that was not able to make it in (although we had another Christmas on Jan 2nd) and we espically missed Grandma & Grandpa Ferguson this year.  Somehow I do not think Christmas will ever be complete again, it will be fun because it can not help but be with all these amazing children running around but a large part is missing.  I love them and miss them so much!
