Very Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Here's a little Christmas treat for you.
Something cute.
How could you not love a little boy in a Santa suit?
DI for $2? I could not resist.

And then he fell trying to look at the lights on the Christmas tree.
Luckily I got this picture just in time.

And he's something creepy. I think the picture says it all.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.
We are going to have a sunny Christmas in the Philippines.
We leave tomorrow and I am beyond excited but slightly nervous for the approximately 20 hours we will spend flying with an almost one year old.
Oh goodness.
Pray for us.

the belated Thanksgiving post

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah I'm a little bit late. Colin actually had time to spend with us last week so I took advantage of that.

We watched a lot a Grey's Anatomy (we're on season 4 now).

We took a trip up to the new H&M and Crate and Barrell (by the way it was much too crowded).

We bought a new washer (ours was broken and we had to resort to wearing dirty clothes, gross? yes).

We had an awesome Thanksgiving day with family at my Aunt's house. It involved a lot of great food, football, a dance party, and of course a program. My family likes programs and Colin is learning to like them too. What a guy I have.

We did a little Black Friday shopping and by we I mean me. Colin did do his part by watching the babe because heaven knows I wouldn't want to take Cooper into that madness.

And we spoke in Church. Normally I don't like doing that but it wasn't so bad. We spoke about gratitude. How fitting. We honestly have so much to be thankful for. I'm not going to go all mushy on you right now but I just want to say I'm thankful for my two boys. They are what makes me happy and I love them more than I can say. I'm also thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the peace it brings. Of course I'm thankful for so much more I'm not going to leave it at that.

Also, over Thanksgiving break we gave Coop Dog a little haircut. Okay it was a big hair cut. I snapped this picture of Cooper one morning and when I looked at it I knew something had to be done.I mean it's cute, of course, but a little out of control. I would love for him to have long hair but his hair doesn't know how to lay down. No amount of gel of hairspray can keep it down for long.

Let's get a closer look.

Yes, definitely out of control.

So we gave the only haircut I know how to give.... A buzz. And I think it's pretty dang cute.

Pardon the unphotogenicness of these pictures. He wasn't feeling up to being my model at the moment. I think they're kind of funny though but that could be because he's my kid. And I'm not sure why he's not wearing a shirt but it seems to happen a lot for some reason.

And now that's it December I can officially say Merry Christmas!
