|Who? Me? What? I didn't do anything!|
|Ha, Ha, Ha! L - you had me in front of the wrong tree. I think this one much better. The boys put the ornaments low, just for me :-)|
Thursday we went on a different adventure. We went with one of Ian's friends to Bass Pro Shop. They saw Santa, played some games, colored, wrote letters to Santa, and pretended to shoot "game" throughout the store. This last part was funny! My family always say I'm raising a couple of "city" boys. Well, Ian is definitely a cross between a city boy and a country boy! He asked for Carhartt overalls and ended up with a "pop" gun so he can "shoot" things around our house. We did convince him that the pop gun was an outside toy (otherwise it will drive us all batty!!!)
|He is definitely NOT camera shy!|
|I think she has hit her Santa quota for the year!|
|Who would have thought Bass Pro Shop could be so much fun!|
|Too much excitement for this little one.|
|I can "hear" it popping just looking at this pic!|
Hailey is still on the move. Yesterday she traveled from the middle of the family room through the length of the kitchen and was stopped by the laundry room door (which did not make the mobile little girl happy!). Yes, it was all backwards but she is using her legs and getting on her knees. We have to start somewhere, don't we?
|Hmm...what is this flooring?|
|Hey, mom! I'm over here!|
|Help! I have no where else to go!|
|Mom, can you please just help me and NOT take a picture?!?|
Tonight we attended our neighbor's church's annual Christmas program. We have been attending the past few years and as always, this year's did not disappoint. The first half is filled with popular songs of the season and the second half is the story of the birth of Jesus. My high energy boys every year stay mesmerized for the full hour and half (the snacks our neighbor brings "might" help their attention span!). I love this program. It gets my heart and soul in the Christmas spirit. The festive, Santa-side and the spiritual side. Hailey wasn't sure of the noises and was out before the telling of Jesus' birth.
Santa is also checking his/her list and then double checking :-) I always blame my husband on "over" buying for the kids. After making my list of what has already been purchased, I think I may have falsely accused him :-) We are heading out shopping next week just the two of us and I can't wait. I look forward to it all year!
I'm looking forward to tomorrow. It is the first day in 7 that we have nothing on the agenda. We plan on spending it in our pjs making cookies and Christmas crafts. Ha!!! I hope that really happens but in our house...something is bound to interfere :-)
