Christmas at Williamsburg

Again, what spirited boys I have!!! This is the Toy Shoppe in Williamsburg - many "Maxfield family" pictures in front of this window...remember sisters??
The boys found the perfect climbing tree!! (L to R Jacob, Josiah, Alexander, and Anderson who wasn't situated quite right!)
Callie and Carter...stroller babies! :)
Callie's little nose gets so red when she's cold. She looked so cute all bundled up!
Erin, Josiah, Alexander, and Jacob wrestling around...passing the time...probably making Jen & Sue (Erin & Alexander's moms) stress out, I'm sure!
Erin Maggiore...cutie pie, but tough as all the other boys!
Cody Jackson - are those curls the cutest or what?
Josiah and Alexander thought it was hilarious that their sweaters were the same type!

They had the normal fireworks up the sky, but they also had these "cannon" types that shot from the ground - they were so cool! Some went back and forth like a sprinkler, etc. Amazing.
David and Callie watching fireworks. She had fallend asleep RIGHT before the fireworks started. Oh well.
Jacob and Josiah watching fireworks...
I am the luckiest mom in the world with these 3!
Hamilton Ratz - the new 1 year old!


After a very yummy lunch and a nice relaxing drive, we arrived at Williamsburg to settle in for the festivities! We had a few sprinkles of rain here and there, but other than that, it was perfect! Cold enough to wear our hats and be bundled up, but not so cold that we were frigid! The kids had a great time playing in the grass (how many people moved their spots after they saw our brigade??), and the fireworks display was one of the best I've ever seen. The kids were totally mesmerized. We even were able to walk down to the shoppes and get a family picture in front of the Toy Store - I have lots of pictures with my sisters growing up in front of that window! :) It was a great day of fun with friends!
