Dancing boys

I caught Riis and Beck dancing in the living room last night while I was making dinner. When I tried to dance with them, Beck said "Don't dance!", as always! Love Beck's air guitar and the Riis' attempts to breakdance! Beck is really feeling the music.

And, yes, they LOVE Pink! :)

Riis' name

Riis came downstairs just now with his arms folded over his chest and unfolded his arms saying "Ta-Daaa!" See the pics below. He was upstairs writing letters on his white board. I don't know how he managed to write his name on his CHEST! Pretty impressive. :)

Riis, the youngest vampire I've ever seen! :)

Legoland, October 2009

I took the kids to Legoland today and realized when I pulled up to the parking lot that I had made the wrong decision. 4 1/2 of the 5 lots were full of cars! The sea of people made it quite an overwhelming day for the boys and we didn't have the greatest day, to say the LEAST! Usually, we love Legoland, but today I couldn't wait to get the heck out of there.

Riis used his bank money to get his face painted as a "tiger", but our friend Scott said he looks straight out of Cats. :)

Who's that climbing the lego play hospital. Spiderman?

Beck on his Lego Hog!

Halloween Week at Tivoli - 2009

We went to Tivoli yesterday with some of our friends - it was Halloween week there. We got to go on some rides and the playground and then we got to carve pumpkins! The kids were quite happy. They both, so nicely, said "Thank you for taking us to Tivoli." just before falling fast asleep. (they were pooped!) Needless to say, they had so much fun!

"I'm crazy pumpkin head man, gimme some candy!" (Beck was really scared of this guy)

Cedric, Ryan, Beck and Kristen

Riis, the almost 5 year old

Riis will be 5 in a month and it's hard to believe! It seems like yesterday that we were living in our one bedroom apartment in West Roxbury with our brand new baby boy. 5 years has gone by so quickly and Riis hasn't stopped making us laugh since day one. He says some of the funniest things I've ever heard. Here is the most recent thing that had us rolling:

Dag: "Riis, did you see that old house back there?"
Riis: "Yeah, it looks like a damaged pancake!"
Me: "??"

Riis decided to do his own hair the other day - Stylin'!
This poor duck bath tub has a hole, but that doesn't stop my children from using it.

Dag took the boys into the woods the other day and got some cool video of Riis, the frog hunter. video

Soccer - Fodbold for Riis

Riis just started soccer, or as they call it here, fodbold. He's really loving it!
