to nap or not to nap?

So I've been debating whether or not I should cut out Boston's nap during the day.  You see here is the problem.  My child is just like his dad.  He can run all day long with little or no sleep and not let it affect him at all.  Normally he takes a nap around 1:30 and sleeps for anywhere from an hour and a half to two or two and a half hours.  Then he won't go to bed until anywhere between 9 and 10.  But he is SO hard to get to sleep.  We started a terrible habit of laying with him to go to sleep and now we have to do it every time.  It gets annoying sometimes especially when it takes like an hour to get him to sleep.  On the weekend, we usually don't get a nap in cause dad is around and Boston cherishes every moment he has with his daddy.  So Sunday,with the time change, he hadn't taken a nap so I decided to put him down at 8 and he was out like a light in 5 minutes.  So here's my we keep a nap and struggle to put him to bed at night, or take the nap away and put him to sleep earlier?  What do all you mommies do/suggest?

A couple weeks ago we went to a wedding reception down in Provo.  The groom is a distant relative.  But mostly we went down to see these guys.  Sunitha (holding Carter) is my mom's cousin and these are her kids with mine.  They live in California and so we hardly get to see them, so when they came for their nephew's wedding we couldn't miss the chance to see them all.  Rachel, Aaron and Hailie are all getting so big and Boston was having so much fun with them.  But Boston couldn't say Hailie's name.  He has a friend in nursery named Kaylee so he kept calling her Kaylee.  Then I would tell him to say H-H-Hailie.  And Boston would say H-H-Kaylee.  The kids got a kick out of him:)

We wished you guys lived closer!  Love you guys!

Last week we had our annual Smith family Halloween party.  Jill and Shawn came as the Swine Flu...hilarious!

Boston saw these guys and didn't dare come in the house until he realized it was Uncle Scott and Aunt Christy.  Scott and Christy have adopted two adorable little boys and just put in hoping to adopt a little girl.  Good Luck guys!  You and your soon to be little girl are in our prayers!

Here are the three little munchkins.  Carter, Gavin and Khloe.  They are so stinkin cute!

For Halloween, we spent the night at my parents.  Ryan's parents were out of town, but Boston had a blast trick-or-treating and getting candy.  But we only did like 6 houses but it took forever cause he walks so slow!  But he was lovin it!

I was looking through my pictures and found this one...this is how you can find Boston quite often...picking his nose.  Such a funny kid!

Aren't these two the cutest pair you've ever seen!!!  I love my boys!
