Christmas morning

. Category: personal

We had a great xmas morning! I was so excited I woke Asa up. “Asa get up! Santa came!” Asa gets up runs into the living room and said “where did he go?” He then proceeds to get mad because Santa already left. After a few tears, threats and compromises he reluctantly agreed to come open presents. Whew! That almost backfired on me! I’ll have to specify better next year.

Oh before I forget, this was our White Elephant gift from the Christmas Eve party we had. NICE!

Sleepy head “reluctantly” opening his stocking. (oh and in case you notice the grain in these next few pics…this is what happens when you leave your ISO set to 1600…errr)
My boys both got undies from me this year. Can’t go wrong with new socks and drawers! I found the coolest Paul Frank underoos for Asa.
Arggghh…shiver me timbers! I pirate ship with a million little pieces to get lost and/or step on while barefoot….haha…
Asa’s first trainset

And the flip flops that caused a meltdown in a store one day…”my flip flops! my flip flops!” ha HA!! See Santa rewards when you throw fits…hmmm…wait…what?
Trains…. Rockets…
Asa got it ALL!!! He’s so spoiled…And last but not least I got Asa this little kids digital camera. I was so excited to get this for him and he really likes it a lot! However, the pictures are the WORST quality I’ve ever seen. And it wasn’t cheap either! How hard is it to put kid proof plastic around a decent camera? It would have been better to buy a cheapo point and shoot and just replace it when it got broken. Oh well…he thinks its cool…


Check out my little budding photographer…
and the resulting shot.


Well, that was our Christmas morning! Hope you guys had a great day too.

    Great pictures too.You a good mom. Why didn’t you get Sean some Paul Frank undies. I’m sure he would have left super manly in them.

I hope everyone gets what they want from Santa. I know somebody who is SO ready for the big guy to get here. This is the first year Asa actually cares about Christmas and it’s been AWESOME using Santa as a bargaining tool. hahahahaha. Can’t wait to see his face tomorrow! Have a safe and happy Holiday!!

Sweet and Sour

. Category: personal

Two little eyes
Discovering what’s new
Two little hands
Touching everything in view
A sweet little voice
Asking you why
A mischievous smile
And a whimpering cry
Two little feet
Jumping on the floor
A toddler’s mission
is to explore
(author unknown)

And to drive you stark raving mad!! My boy, my boy…my sweet little heathen child. Oh how you got your money’s worth outta me this weekend. I think we had about 12 baby meltdown’s this weekend…most in public places. Everything can be going along just fine…the picture of an angle child…then in an instant (and I literally mean instant) something so small can set him off. And that’s it…game over. And he’s not gonna let it go. He’ll hang on to whatever it is and repeat his want over and over until you think your head will explode.

But then look at this face…how can you stay mad? All I know is there is a fine line between precocious and just plain rotten.
