As the cold sets in, we start to think of Christmas. The kids kicked off the season at a brunch with Santa. They both pined over toy catalogs all morning writing a rather lengthy list. I had to let them know that the list only serves as a guide for Santa. Kids never receive every toy that they ask for.... Simone is also starting to enjoy cooking. On a cold Sunday we decided to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. And they actually turned out!.... Cullen also had his buddy Jerzey over to play. Cullen and Jerzey went to the YMCA daycare together and have been best buds since they were infants. It's fun to see these two get together and pick up right where they left off.... And finally, as the mornings are getting colder the kids seem to need more time for cuddles. No matter what your age, it's hard to get out of bed when it's cold outside.
