Northwest Sunset

Sunsets in the NW are truly beautiful.  Mostly because we don't get to see them very often.
We took full advantage of this sunset last Saturday....the boys were the puffy coat gang-  They look good together.

true and papa bear took at trip to gabe, tina and ezno's apental condo for the weekend (luca was sick, we stayed home).  looks like there was a ton of fresh snow and i hear, a lot of fun!  luca missed his big brother so much and he really can't wait to go up there next time.

Luca's Museum

Luca and I are home today...him from school, me from work.  I'm trying to work online, and he is busy building and creating and having as much fun as he can. He took a few photos of his creation, which he says is a museum.  He also has guards protecting the baby animals.

going, going, going, gone......

what's gone from our lives?

1. nap time.  gone. luca says no more.  gonna miss this one for selfish reasons, but it does open up our weekends to be a little less structured.
2. kisses... to and from true.  (that is, in front of his friends).  he told me that it's just too embarrassing. sad. sad. sad.  but i get it. (luckily, luca gave me a big kiss and said whenever was fine with him).
3. shopping in the "toddler" section.  luca can wear a big kids sz XS. this is a surprisingly hard transition for me to make!
4. true's fuzzy blanket.  gone.  he's done with it.  he picked out a big boy blue striped fleece blanket.  his fuzzy, which was actually a "throw" on our couch, he appropriated at the tender age of a month...  it's been with him about every night since.. and now it is forgotten. laying in the closet.  making friends with dust bunnies.

luca and graham are great friends.  we approve, since graham and his family are awesome.  graham and luca like to go swimming and they like it when the dads ride them on bikes.  they both love the zoo and according to luca, graham's favorite animal is the giraffe.
i love the smiles that both these boys always seem to have.
