"The Boys are Back in Town"

You all remember that song right? I thought it was a perfect title for this blog post. Theo and Carter arrived safely home Wednesday night. And when I tell you my boy was excited to see me, it's an understatement. I was in the car picking them up and I had to pull up a few feet to park and Carter began screaming hysterically because he thought I was leaving again. Once he realized I wasn't, he jumped out of the stroller and threw his arms around me. It was so sweet and I don't think I have ever been happier to see him. I took the day off yesterday to spend time with my two fave fellas. It was nice. We decorated our Christmas tree last night, Theo lit a fire, and we listened to Christmas music. My definition of a perfect Christmas tradition. Unfortunately Carter had a rough night. It took him half an hour to fall asleep on his own and then he woke up a half dozen times crying in the night. I'm praying he'll have a smooth transition going back to sleep in his own bed.

While we were in NY, we went to the city and saw the Intrepid, a Naval aircraft carrier/museum. Theo really wanted Carter to experience this. It was a neat thing to see and if Carter had not been acting so terrible that day (and I do mean truly terrible!!), we probably would have had a much better time.

Alas, I digress.....I wanted to post some pictures of our visit. Note to self: toddlers can not fully appreciate the value of visiting a military museum and learning about naval history. We will definitely not do this again until he is older :)

How could you think that precious boy was truly terrible?
