We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Holy moly! Can I just say THANK GOODNESS Christmas is over?! My husband and I have had three days of Christmas (Christmases?) every year since we got together (3 years now). We have too much family! Actually, HE has too much family. Anyway, back to the updates…

The first weekend of the month, my husband and I went to his Christmas party for the National Guard. The only bad thing was it took us an hour to get there when it should’ve only taken half an hour at most. However, we had a pretty good time this year. The food was really good, the decorations were beautiful, and I actually looked nice. Some of the dresses girls my age wear should be outlawed and the girls wearing them should be arrested for public indecency! The fact that the fabric goes an inch past the bottom of your butt should be a sign that that’s a top, not a dress. Stupid.

The second weekend of the month, we had a family Christmas party to attend with people I didn’t think I knew. When we got there, I found out I’d seen a lot of the people around, I just had no clue they were related to my husband.

Christmas Eve, we had dinner at my husband’s grandma’s house and had AMAZING food. I think it’s a grandma’s job to cook fantastic food. We found out quickly that Little Man takes FOREVER to open a present. He would rather sit and stare at the tiny piece of paper in his hand than see what is wrapped in the paper, so I had to keep taking the pieces out of his hand and telling him to get a new one. He got lots of clothes and some toys.

Note the studious face.

Christmas Day, we went to another family member’s house and had more great food. Little Man opened more presents and got to have his first piece of pie, which resulted to his first bath in an actual bathtub (we have a plastic baby bathtub that we still use for him). He got a coat, a pair of boots, some clothes, some toys, and some books.

I don't think he knew what happened.

All in all, it was a pretty great first Christmas for Little Man. He wasn’t too excited about what he got this year but I’m sure he won’t be able to hide his excitement next year.

(Sorry this post took so long for me to complete. I think I might’ve accidentally forgotten about it.)

Colors of the Wind

(This is my first post from the WordPress app so hopefully this will turn out well)

Hello there folks! How’s December treating you? We’re doing pretty good here. Little Man is sleeping, the husband is playing a video game and I’m watching Netflix. Have you ever seen Fringe? OMG, it’s a CRAZY show.
Little Man has been Disneybounding every time we go somewhere.

By the way, the burrito in the second picture is just cheese rolled up and melted in a tortilla.
Little Man had his 9 month checkup and a flu shot today. He did great with the shot, he didn’t cry until the doctor already had the needle in and he stopped crying when I picked him up. He’s growing up so fast. I can’t believe I’m already planning his first birthday party. How is it that one year can pass so quickly sometimes and so slowly other times?!
This weekend coming up, we are getting pictures with Santa (wish us luck on that) and we’re attending a family Christmas party with family I’ve never met. I’m really bad in those situations so I’m hoping I’ll be able to be social at least once.
What are your plans for the weekend? Have you tried Disneybounding? Let me know in the comments below!

Remember December

It’s December folks and we all know what that means…every store you go into will be PACKED with people who refuse to shop the other 11 months of the year.

We had to go to the mall but like smart people, we waited until this past Saturday. We knew it would be a little full but hoped that the people would be spread out enough to move…thank goodness we were right…except for that line to see Santa. UGH! Good news though! We got a tie and socks to finish out Little Man’s Christmas suit! He will look awesome! By the way, Party City had NO How To Train Your Dragon decorations so now Little Man’s birthday party theme is unknown.

Over the last few days, my super photogenic Little Man has NOT wanted his picture taken. I think he got sick of it with a million cameras flashing in his face on Thanksgiving. Here are some atrocities I have captured…

He looks like he's asleep but this is an hour after he woke up...

Then on Sunday, we decided we would finally take some pictures for a Christmas card (we’re a bit late I know). At first, Little Man was cooperating, then we ended up with pictures like this…

He hates sitting still...

Yesterday, Little Man decided he would let me take adorable pictures again.

We went shopping and he got this ADORABLE new bear that he absolutely LOVES. The bear’s name is Snowby and he shivers when you touch his nose (Little Man knows this and when I ask what Snowby does, he touches Snowby’s nose and giggles). He came with a storybook that tells about why he shivers and it’s just downright adorable!

As for my husband and I, we have a fancy dinner/Christmas party thingamajig to go to on Saturday. We’ll get all dressed up, leave Little Man with a sitter, go to a country club that we would never step foot in on a normal day, and watch people drink crazy amounts of alcohol while we eat some okay tasting food. Sounds like an awesome time, right? HA! But this year I’m way more prepared than I was last year. See, last year I was about 6 months pregnant at this party and wore the only dress I owned that fit…a sweater dress. When we got to the party, the women were wearing gowns…yes, GOWNS…like you’d wear to prom (the long kind not those short skimpy things that teenagers nowadays try to pass off as a gown but it barely covers anything). This year, I emailed the lady who organized the party and asked if the dress code was the same and she told me yes, so I went and got this really pretty cobalt blue dress that comes a bit past my knee (which is AWESOME since I’m 5’11”) and gold sparkly flats. I’m probably a bit more excited than I should be, but oh well. I’ll post pictures after the party at some point.

I totally forgot to mention Disneybound December (if you don’t know what Disneybounding is, click here)! I’ve been working on this since October and finally decided on what would happen. I decided Little Man will be the only one to Disneybound, since he has a million pieces of clothing in every color imaginable. But then I realized that there was really no point in getting him dressed in normal clothes if we weren’t going anywhere, so he’ll only be Disneybounding when we go somewhere. Luckily, December is the busiest month of the year for us, so he’ll be doing a lot.

I was going for Mufasa...

I don’t have a set schedule yet, but I’ll post it as soon as I do! I’ll be going now, see you back here later!
