Bring it on Christmas

The boo's are ready for the holidays! 
And so are we!  Our "Chris Chris Tree" is up and decorated.
"Jingle Bell" our elf is up and watching the boo's, ready to report back to Santa each night on their behavior:)  Let's all hope it's a good report! 
Let's get merry!!

Giving thanks

Here we are, the O'Rourke's...Emily (5), Grandad, Gram, Kylie (8), Cohen (2 months), Kori, Emily, Caitlin (19 months), Conall (17 months), Shiloh, Seamus, Andy, Erin (3 1/2), Kienan, Declan (3) and BC...celebrating Thanksgiving!  Gram had a wonderful spread for all of us to get chunky on:)  It was a beautiful day and so great to spend it with everyone.  The cousins had an awesome time playing together and the brothers (along with Grandad) had a late night out!  Hope you all had a happy turkey day!

mama & boo date

Saturday morning boo and I had a date!  We went to an early screening of the new movie The Muppets!  (thanks dad for getting us tickets)  We snuck in M&M's and Twizzlers (Dec doesn't know that!) and had great seats:)  It was a really fun movie, great music and the cameo's were awesome too.  It was fun to tell Declan all of the Muppet names, his favorite was Animal because he played the drums!  Definitely a great family movie, but the best part was watching Declan in the big movie seat looking up at the "big tv"!

17 months

Only one more month til our little Conall Bear will be 1 and a half, please go slow!  Wow, has Conall became his own little guy lately.  Loves to have his puppy with him, can't get enough fruit (doesn't really care what kind as long as he can eat it), really likes to read...Go, Dog Go and Put Me in the Zoo are his current favorites.  And he really is such a good little brother, if Declan needs a kleenex he goes and gets it for him:)  He's finally sleeping well, no longer nursing means no more getting up in the middle of the night!  I think he actually likes to sleep now!  He's really close to do a somersault and likes to say "boo" (thanks to Declan always saying it).  His top and bottom cuspids are poking in, thankfully!  Now if we could just get him to start liking pasta!  We love this little bear:)

3 years + 5 months

3 years and 5 months is just one month away from 3 and a half, AAHHH!
Trucks, books, pretzels, cinnamon toast, Curious George and singing...some of Declan's favorite things!  Oh and school, he's loving school:)  We've been reading a lot of books about trucks and Thanksgiving and he has been singing so many songs from school lately, it's just been so much fun!  He's really, really ready for it to snow (not me) and for it to be Christmastime.  And he wants to get our Christmas tree so bad!  He is just a little guy full of love, laughs and questions:)  We love our boo and all that he is!

boo's in capes

The boo's were sporting some dish towel capes the other day:)  I love that they didn't care, they just had fun running through the house with "power"!!
