Merry Christmas

Well, its here. Christmas is tomorrow!!! I don't think I could be any more excited. And to top it all of Brandon is WALKING!!!! He's been taking 4, 5, or 8 or steps all day! Its so neat. And yes, just for the record I was officially right that he would be walking by Christmas! We are off to my parents tonight to do appies and then spending the morning with Kris's family and the afternoon with mine! I am just so excited I don't think I will be able to sleep tonight (We will see if this is the year that Kristina takes forever to go to sleep, every year before has been fine.) I tried to do my own little photo shoot the other day, how frustrating when you want the kids to do something specific and they just won't do it. But I finally got a good shot or two :) Have an amazing Christmas, I can't wait to see my little ones faces when they open up there presents!

Good Pic
Bad Pic (or a good one depending on how you look at it)

10 months

Well I work tomorrow all day so I better do this now so I don't forget ;) Brandon is going to my moms tomorrow night all by his big boy self so that the three of us can have a special night together. We are going to go for dinner, to see Santa, bowling and to drive around looking at Christmas lights. It should be fun. I think she could really use a dose of some just Kristina time. I am looking forward to it. Brandon is drinking milk now, homo milk. He seems to be doing OK on it, we have a bit of an issue the night before last with him being up like ALL night! It was awful, I wasn't sure if the milk was bothering him or if it was just a really bad cold, but I guess it was a cold because we are all good now! Thank goodness! Kristina had a milk allergy when she was little and thankfully outgrew it but it just sucks, rice milk is way more expensive than homo! We didn't even slowly put him onto it, we just did it. He has had lots of yogurt and cheese so I figured it wouldn't be a problem. He has also had his first haircut. Kris has been bugging me for a few weeks to do it but I didn't want to. His bangs were really getting long though so I did finally give them a trim in the bath. Looks pretty good if you ask me :)

PS - I can't wait for Christmas!!!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas........Everywhere I go!!!!

Can you just hear me singing or what? lol! Well, lets is new around here :) Kristina is starting to behave better, starting though, we don't want to get to ahead of ourselves :) We have her sleeping in Brandon's room now. She seems to like it better and I have no worries about that. By the time he will need to go into that twin she will be more than ready to get some time away from him and escape to her attic.

We have had some snow in the past few days so its really feeling winter like around here, along with you know -10 degrees! That's cold! Kristina hasn't played in it too to much because its just too fine, you can't really make anything with it. But its beautiful just the same. She also had her first Christmas concert at school. It was just too cute. She did awesome, they all did. We are all done our Christmas shopping we just need to do one more thing, wrap it and we are DONE!!!! YAAAA for me!!!!

Brandon has finally walked to Sylvie, only a step or two but we can say its official and Sylvie is able to go now ;) Not right now but whenever she is ready. Brandon has now taken 3 steps on his own today, two yesterday for Nana! Hes getting more confident everyday. Yesterday he started waving, and today he started clapping. He really gets into it and really gets going. PS he can also kiss, and he does give the tongue if he really likes you :)

Christmas is coming!!!

I love Christmas! I can't wait, I think I am actually more excited than Kristina is :)

Christmas rocks in more ways than get things of course, but I am a big giver, I love buying people things (sometimes this is bad because I can get carried away) but I love it. You get to spend time with family, all of your family, who doesn't love that? OK I could see some people not loving that, but I am lucky in that I love all of my family and beyond! The looks on the kids faces is priceless!!!!! You really can't beat that. They are sooooo excited that they can't sleep and get up super early and are just sooooo excited its contagious! When they believe in Santa sooooo much and are just thrilled with his gifts and that he ate his cookies and stuff! Wow, Christmas is only 15 days away, almost 14! I am getting sooo excited. I am done my shopping, I just need to get some photos with Santa and stuff like that done and then that's it. Everything is already wrapped, its just in my room instead of under the tree because then Brandon can't tear it apart. But we are ready. We just need some egg nog and we are good to go!!!!

Here are some of the latest pics of Brandon with his eyes open, I finally figured out to stop the first flash so he didn't always have his eyes closed in pics! Enjoy!

Happy December!

That's how my mom started out every month with us growing up. It seemed kind of silly but I can't help but continue it now! We are really getting into the Christmas spirit around here now! I am loving it up. I am so close to being done my shopping, that's my favorite part! Tonight we had appetizers for dinner including some garlic sausage, crackers, cheese and egg nog! Yummy! Then we all put out all of the decorations and set up our tree. Its beautiful! I can't wait for Christmas now, I really want to wrap stuff now but I don't see the point when I know Brandon will just drool them to death!
