We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Standard

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.

When we got home

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.)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

It has been a busy week in this household. Let me tell you what’s been up…

Little Man is growing and developing mentally and physically like crazy. He now crawls, stands while holding things, stands without holding things (if he’s distracted by a puppy and has no clue he’s standing), and feeds himself finger foods.

His grandma gave him all sorts of food when we visited her after her double knee replacement surgery!

He loves every kind of food! That's a french fry by the way...

He used his grandma's walker to stand...he used it like all evening.

I got a new phone!!! My iPhone 4 (yes, just a 4 no S or G) was two years old and slow as all hell, so when my upgrade rolled around we jumped on it like…like…something that jumps on other things. I am now the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S4, it’s HUGE compared to my iPhone 4 but it’s great! I’m about to be planning things like crazy. We’ll be having a home photo shoot for our first ever Christmas card, I have to photoshop the picture we choose (hopefully not, but I have an 8 month old so anything could happen), gather addresses of family and friends, and make and order the Christmas cards. While I’m waiting for their arrival, I need to plan out Little Man’s Disneybound December (details in a future post), start planning Little Man’s first birthday party more (we have a menu, venue, and date! YAY!), and I’m sure there is more that I’m forgetting. My 24th birthday falls in late January, but I am not planning anything for that. On top of all the planning I’ll be doing, I have an adult Christmas party with my husband, a family Christmas party, and two family Christmas dinners (at least) to attend. The holiday season (especially Christmas) has been the busiest time for my husband and I the last two years and I expect this year to be no different…well, except for the amount of presents we’ll be bringing home now that we have a spoiled son (he’s the first grandchild on both sides…kinda).

This is probably what I'll look like until March...minus the hair and the makeup being done.

This post is a LOT longer than I had hoped, oh well, you’ll live. OH! Anyone have any ideas of food to serve at a How To Train Your Dragon themed birthday party? We thought of spicy foods, but there will be children in attendance so that idea is out the window. Let me know! See you back here later!

Like Yesterday

Standard

Well, I’ve missed a few days again. I’m working on learning to crochet so I get focused on that and completely blank on writing for my blog or on the story I’ve been working on. I just posted the Wordless Wednesday post that I missed so I’ll fill in the rest of the October Blogging Challenge now!

I don’t really have a favorite past Halloween costume. I was a cheerleader for a few years (stupid idea when it’s cold as all get out in late October) but other than that, I never really dressed up.

My top 5 favorite workout songs are Think Good Thoughts by Colbie Caillat, It Stops Today by Colbie Caillat, You Make Me Feel Like A Star (Lizzie Mix) by The Beu Sisters, Whipped Into Shape from the Legally Blonde Musical, and Bellas Finals from Pitch Perfect. Mind you, the exercise I do to these is either dance around the kitchen, sing super loud while driving, or attempt to not fall while singing loudly in the shower.

I have to be honest on this one, my most favorite thing about the holidays is the food. I’m a fat kid at heart (I would be in real life but luckily my genetics gave me a fast metabolism) so I love the fact that I now have to attend 3 Thanksgivings and 5 Christmases. Plus, I love seeing family, especially my side to see how much all the kids are growing (my son is the only grandbaby that visits often on my husband’s side).

That’s my catch up post. Tomorrow’s post (weekend highlights) will be GREAT because I did something super exciting this weekend! See you then!
