Tonight, I was giving Jared and Andrew a bath. I told Andrew several times that he could move back and spread out. However, he wanted to stay close to Jared and leave room for Wessie.
We all miss Wessie but he is having fun with Grandma.

When we were getting ready this morning, Wes asked if I knew where to find a Christmas tree. When I said 'no, where?' he replied with a commanding 'At Santa's workshop!' But, of course Wes. When we arrived at the tree lot, Wes was confused and asked over and over "where are the elves?"
Our trip was uneventful. I don't have a fun story to tell about the tree falling off on our drive home or fun video to post of the boys fighting the Christmas tree. The most interesting part of our adventure was the gentleman running the lot who struggled with math but excelled at sharing his personal life stories about hitchhiking from Maine to Florida three times and getting covered in fire ants.
Andrew wanted every four foot tall tree while Jared and Wed wanted the HUGE oak tree in the middle of the tree lot.
We got our tree home and placed in the tree stand before packing up to head off to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving. We will decorate when we get home.
I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.

Daddy had a wonderful idea to take the boys over to the neighborhood pool's parking lot to ride. Now that fall is upon us, the pool is closed so we assumed the parking lot would be empty. Daddy was right!Daddy parked the truck at the entrance of the parking lot, set up two chairs for us to sit back and the boys rode and rode! It was fun to watch them ride and as an added bonus, they really wore themselves out. The following video is a little longer than usual but it was such a fun morning, I wanted to have these memories. Enjoy...
In the video, the boys are riding and at one moment, Andrew returns on foot... huh? He had "parked" his bike. Once he gave Wes the idea, Wes parked his bike and started running. Before we moved away from the parking lot, Wes had run over a dozen laps; my Energizer Bunny!
Daddy even joined in on the racing fun and took a lap to race the boys...
After a while, we decided to move over to the gazebo area. The boys would race from one end of the area to the other and back. I was sitting up on a bar area while taking the video.
I sure hope Santa knows that the boys have just about out grown these toddler bikes and are ready for some 'big boy' bikes, with helmets! I know that they should have probably had on helmets for this morning's fun but we actually don't have them since they have only been riding in the back yard... yep, bad parents! Hopefully Santa knows better!
Another fun day for Team Darnell!
