A Little Behind...

Jalen has been having lots of fun with his Christmas countdown. I have still been taking pictures every day, I just haven't had time to upload them to the computer. He's gotten lots of things from candy to donuts to cookie cutters to a painting cook. One thing in common, is his love for finding the things and doing them. Last night we had fun in the rain getting some Goodberry's and sitting in the car watching Christmas lights. It was fun and Jalen was amazed. It's like this year he is really tuning in to what is going on. This weekend it is my goal to finish Christmas shopping...

I finish school -- yay! Well, just for this semester, but next year I will be graduating around this time which is super exciting for us.

Jalen was supposed to have his Christmas play and party today, but unfortunately, Wake County delayed 2 hours, which cancels his school. I was bummed. I was looking forward to it so much and Nick was even able to get off. :(

Snow Dog!

Izzy's first snow! She didn't know what to do. She tried to throw it around and eat it. It was cute :) She's such a spoiled dog, but a great dog..

Drawer 23

Santa dropped a Tom and Jerry ornament while he was trying to get out the chimney! It's too cute and Jalen loves it on his little tree...

Drawer 24!

Santa dropped by and brought some candy canes and some candy! Jalen was super excited to look in his hood and see what he dropped!! This is so much fun...

Best Friends!!

This makes my heart melt!

A Day at Grandpa's!

Last Sunday I watched Salah for awhile and we headed over to Grandpa's to see Ryan and Grandpa for awhile. All the kids had a blast and it was so much fun to see them all playing together. We were all worn out after though! Everyone got their feel of cookies, juice boxes, etc.. What happens at Grandpa's stays at Grandpa's!!

Our 2010 Tree

I love our beautiful Christmas tree!!

Note: The 2 branches with 12 angels were due to Jalen's decorating. Though it looked great and was very cute, I did have to move them so that they would not break and I had angels in other spots.

New Traditions! Drawer 25...

This year I painted an advent calendar for Jalen and decided that each day we would do a clue, hopefully that would rhyme, and send Jalen on an adventure through the house to find the item Santa left for him while seeing if he was good. Today was the first day and Jalen loved doing it. He found some Toy Story 3 pajamas for him. He was so excited seeing as everyone at school loves Toy Story 3 and he knows what they're talking about... So glad he will enjoy this!!
