Exciting Stuff

The past week in pictures...
We took Ethan to a Thunder game the Sunday before Christmas. He wasn't as excited as I thought he'd be. Oh well...the tickets were free.

My side of the family opens presents on Christmas Eve (Zann's side does Christmas morning) and then Santa comes on Christmas morning. Double presents!

Santa and Santa Jr. The package hander outers.

We don't look alike at all.

Christmas explosion!

My mom has been wanting a new picture of me and my sister for like 6 years (no lie). We were so excited for her to open this. I don't think she had any idea.

This is what happens when 2 men take a 3 year old to the park...said 3 year old gets to do whatever he wants including throwing himself in front of a locomotive.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas! Bring on 2009!

Fa la la la la

Tree is trimmed. Halls are decked. Stockings are hung. Presents are wrapped.
Bring on Christmas.

Please excuse the refrigerator parts and the leaf.

My favorite after Christmas purchase from last Mark Roberts Christmas fairy!

I opted to skip garland this year. I think I like this option alot better actually.

Even Molly is full of Christmas spirit. Notice she's sporting a Christmas sweater. This is the only article of clothing that she has. We are not those kind of people. She just gets cold when she has to potty outside.

And this is my little 3 year old. I wonder if he's ever going to give up that silky?

Things have been somewhat chaotic around our house lately. We've had something every night since we got home from Thanksgiving break. We did manage to get most of our Christmas shopping done last night though (thanks Amy). Now if I just had a tree to put them under...

Christmas Countdown

Just a Thanksgiving recap...

My best friend, Tara, made Ethan some dinosaur boogers for his birthday.

Just one more birthday present from MiMi and PeePaw.

We brought Molly with us down to Houston for Thanksgiving. Kailee is 16 years old and Molly is 4 months. Molly wanted to play with Kailee so bad but she wanted no part of it.

Ethan has MiMi wrapped around his little finger. I'm sure she was worn out after we left. They probably went up and down the stairs about 500 times.

Thanksgiving day...can't remember if it was before or after the feast.

Ethan got to play golf with the boys while the girls went shopping on Friday morning. I'm pretty sure he had an awesome time. I think Zann might have even let him drive the golf cart.

And of course no trip to Houston is complete without a visit to Ikea. I always go if I can squeeze it in. I have the big version of this chair in black and I'm thinking I should have gotten this for Ethan. Maybe Santa shops at Ikea too.

Here is Zann & Casey with Kailee before we left yesterday. Did I mention she's 16 years old? That's like 102 in human years.
We had a fun time in Houston at MiMi and PeePaw's. It's always tough to leave but it's nice to be home. Now I need to figure out when I'm going to put my Christmas decorations up...

Turkey Day Has Come and Gone

I'm laying in bed trying to come down from a sugar high so I can get my rest for tomorrow's shopping festivities. Turkey Day is officially over but you should see the leftovers in the fridge! Ham, turkey, dressing, carrots, corn casserole, green bean casserole (gone), cranberry sauce rolls, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, ice cream and ginger cookies! Yummy! Ethan's newest thing is saying the prayer before our meals. This is how it went at breakfast...
Dear God,
Thank you for the food. Thank you for my toys. Thank you for my clothes. Thank you for my house. Thank you for the food. Thank you for Jesus.
He is so sweet. I'm thankful for those things too buddy. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Let the countdown to Christmas begin!

It's official. Ethan is three. We had his party on Friday night (his actual birthday was Saturday) at Unpluggits. We played, ate some cake, opened presents and visited with friends we hadn't seen in a while. Thank you everyone who came and made Ethan's birthday so special.

Katie Rowten did Ethan's cake. She got tons of compliments on it. Look how cute it is. And it was sooo yummy.

The demolished dinosaur. Poor little guy.

More pictures to come...
