The Kings of Queens

We took a New Year's Eve adventure to NYC today.  But instead of heading to Times Square like a million of our closest friends, we went to Queens.  For the views, for the playgrounds and for the food!

Happy New Year, everyone!  : )

Gingerbread House Making FUN!

When the aunts and cousins come over for some Christmas fun...we end up with a few masterpieces of gingerbread houses and two kids overdone on sugar!  Pure Christmas joy.  : )

Winter Vacation Begins

Yesterday was the first day of Winter Break for Ben and me.  Tommy had school so Ben and I got to spend the day together going around town.  We got him a haircut, went to the library and then out to lunch.  In the afternoon he spent some time at the playground while I cleaned out the car - necessary for both of us!  We braved CVS to get a special ornament for Tommy and Dad, and then headed off to taekwondo.  It was a full but fun day!
Today we got to spend the day with Tommy since it was his first day of break.  We started off with a haircut for him and then drove up to Bounce - an indoor trampoline park.  They had a 6-years-old and under jump session for the kids, which was a perfect way to get the energy out!  After that we had lunch at the diner and then went home.  Ben went to the music store with Dad and Tommy and I went to Starbucks for a hot chocolate date.  Then we headed into CVS again to get an ornament for Ben.  It actually went smoothly, and it was nice to spend some one-on-one time with each of the kids.

Tomorrow is Christmas eve, so I am expecting quite a bit of chaos in the next 48 hours, but it's all good.  Time to get wrapping!
