Oh Santa

After weeks of anticipation, the boys went to Santa Land in San Francisco.  Singing Christmas carols walking around town, I was not expecting their reactions.  The picture says it perfectly.  Poor Santa even gave up his throne.

So, here ya go.  The yearly Santa picture.  It was definitely a Royal Tenenbaum moment.tenanabum

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday filled with memories, and even some of the Royal Tenenbaum variety.

Seasonal Sensory Slime: Sorting Pumpkin Seeds

photo(25)After a full night of Halloween fun, the boys and I needed some chill time at home.  But to keep them busy, I used the fun “pumpkin brains” from our pumpkin carving efforts to create a slimy sensory experience.  A bowl and a colander later I was in business.

Basically dump the “pumpkin brains” into a bowl.  Add a bunch of water.  Set a colander or another bowl next to it.  And, let your little one go to town.

B spent forty minutes enjoying the slime.  Afterwards, we made some roasted pumpkin seeds.  Want to try our recipe – check here.
