Got to Love Toddlers

So this afternoon when Makay was eating lunch Logan decided that he needed to eat the waffle that I was feeding Makay instead of letting him have it. I looked over just in time to see Logan shove the whole thing in his mouth I said "Logan that's the baby's lunch you already ate" he pulled the huge piece out of his mouth handed it to me, saliva and everything, and said "your welcome mommy." What could I do but start laughing, at least he used his manners right. lol The day is always full of surprises when you have small children at home.

A Matching Match Christmas

After a fun morning of opening presents with the boys Dave's parents stopped by to deliver their presents for us, and receive their presents from us. As you can tell I love to have things match, the boys are wearing their new p.j.'s that they received on Christmas Eve, Dave and I are wearing our p.j. pants that we got a few years ago, and G-ma and G-pa are wearing their matching sweatshirts that we made for them with a picture of the boys. In the picture on the sweatshirts the boys are also so matching with their homemade shirts from G-pa with a certain score on them 48-24, anybody know what it's for???? I think have a sickness, an obsession with everybody matching, oh well they are only little once so I have to do it while I can.

Aside from the matching it was a super fun morning to watch Logan open his presents and hear a high pitched "Lighting McQueen" when he open the trailer he got, and 2 lighting McQueen cars. And when he came running into the living room and we asked him what Santa brought him he said, "I don't see him, he's not here." Logan's excitement for Christmas has really brought out the Christmas spirit in Dave and I, it has been a great Holiday season, and I look forward to many, many, more.

I wish you all a wonderfully happy new year!

Christmas Card Problems

Well normally getting my Christmas cards done is not a problem, and normally Costco does a really good job. However, this year that has not been the case, hence the reason none of you have received our Christmas card yet. Just in case you want to know the whole story I'm going to tell you, and because I need vent, so here it is.

Apparently at Costco there are two different colored machines, and with out any signs indicating that there is a difference in the machine I am supposed to know this. Well we used the blue machine (instead of the black one) that prints folded Christmas cards and you only get 20 for $14.99. Well we thought we were getting 50 postcard style cards for the same price. We found this out after we had to wait three days to get our cards even though we picked 1-hour. I guess their machine was not working correctly. I was hoping to have the cards in the mail by Saturday, obviously that didn't happen since it's Monday night. Dave ended up picking up the pictures today when I was at the gym so I didn't hear the story until I got home and it was too late to go back. Needless to say I'm going to take the pictures back tomorrow and let them know that I am dissatisfied with this service, get my money back and then figure out what I am going to do about Christmas cards.
Hopefully everybody will get our card sometime before the New Year! O.K. I'm done.

On a completely different note, I just watched The Polar Express with Logan and Dave, it was so awesome, I almost cried. Having your own kids and wanting them to believe in Santa and the whole Christmas spirit really brings it out in yourself. It has been so fun buying stuff for Logan this year, He is so cute trying to sing the words to Christmas songs, and saying "Santa says, 'ho,ho,ho'" and various other phrases. Having my own family has truly brought the joy back into Christmas for me. I love my family, and the Christmas season.

Happy Holidays

Now that Thanksgiving has past we can officially start celebrating Christmas. I am anti Christmas before Thanksgiving has past, so I was boycotting Christmas music on the radio or even thinking about putting up any of my decorations. So tonight for family home evening (FHE) we are going to put up Christams decorations. I am very excited for many reasons, the first being that since we have had Logan I don't think we have ever had FHE mostly because if Dave ever had a night off from work we were going to make the most of it by going and hanging out with friends. The second reason is because it's always fun to have your house festive for the holidays. Third, I think Logan will be pretty excited to help put up the tree and other decorations.

As a little side note I wish I could have put some pictures up with this post of the fun I had with my sister, her boyfriend, and my niece over Thanksgiving but we are having trouble putting pictures on our computer from the camera. Hopefully we will fix that soon. Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to all. I will expect Christmas cards from all of you, that is an important part of our Christams derocrations.
