Uno Obsession

Macen is currently undergoing an uno obsession. We've spent countless hours playing since before Christmas break. Thankfully we all enjoy it.

Snow Days

Glue and salt project

Shaving cream and food coloring project. I forgot to get pics of them with the baking soda and vinegar the first day.

We've had a rough start back to school from Christmas Break. Macen went all of Monday and half of Friday last week. Maddox had no school all last week. And they missed Monday of this week. So far we've been out for snow, cold and ice days. We've kept busy with neighbor friends playing the wii, playing uno and doing projects.

Game 1

He's lovin' it! Not surprised given how competitive he is.

Christmas Break

They spent the majority of break playing Skylanders. They've been busy making sure all the new figures are leveled up and have plenty of coins for upgrades. At least they have actual clothes on in this pic because most of break was also spent in pjs.

Bean Bags

The bean bags from Santa have been a big hit. 

Used as shields from a shooting dad.

Chill time

And lots of jumping!

Santa Came

The much anticipated Skylanders game.

Maddox finally got his own Lego bin. 

A box full of Skylander figures - pretty much the only thing on his list.

A box full of Pokemon figures - pretty much the only thing on his list. 
It's great not having them exposed to commercials or handing them toy catalogs, lol.

Santa gave a family gift with a xbox, several games and more random Skylander figures. The most important game was Minecraft - something Macen has wanted for a very long time now. 

Myles had fun in the aftermath between jumping in and out of boxes to shredding wrapping paper.

The have had a blast with the Skylanders game and bean bags. So much that after 4 straight days of being home, I thought they needed to get out for a bit and was met with resistance from Macen, lol. Also, the last 3 years on Christmas Day in mid-afternoon, Macen has exclaimed "This is the best Christmas ever". So I was hoping for a 4th, lol. He was so distracted with the Trap Team game that I didn't get it until 2 days later. Then I got "This was the most awesome Christmas ever." I'll take it!
