So many posts by me, so little time to read them, eh?

So this one will be short.

I can't believe how big and grown he seems in these pictures and at these moments today. He was so cute. We had a great Sunday. We made it through all 3 hours of church. It was nice.

This second one is what he looks like a lot of the time to me. He is really a happy guy. I am so lucky to be his mom. And proud, too. I love my lil Cody!

Cody's first Christmas

He came, he came, the big guy came. Good ole Santa Claus.
Cody loved it. I loved it. Bella loved it. (Her stuff was sprinkled with cat nip to help her excitement!

We went to Jeaniece's to have some yummy monkey bread and the to taken Ethan and Jeaniece to see Marley & Me. It was a good movie. I am not a dog person, but the movie was about more than just a dog. I enjoyed it.

Now I want a nap. Ah, Christmas. I am loving it!

Crisis averted, Crisis averted

I thought I lost the cord to my camera. The one that I need to get the pictures off the camera and on to the computer. (My new to me computer doesn't have a slot for the memory card.) I did in fact lose the one I took to my sisters the other day. I can't find it. I did however find another one. Woo-hoo! Crisis averted!

I woke up about an hour ago. I thought I heard something. It musta been Santa!!

We opened our Christmas Eve PJ's earlier tonight, too! A tradition from my childhood that I am continuing on with my family.

And started our new tradition as well. Each Christmas Eve we will open one book and read it near the Christmas tree before going to bed. We also talk about the Christmas Story. Not the one where Ralphie shoots his eye out, but the real one about the Savior's birth. And the tardy wisemen. Just kidding. I tried to tell Cody it took them 2 years to get there because they were far far away and there were no airplanes at that time and he just looked at me like. I think he gets it. The flash got him in this one.

Welppers. I need to get back to sleep. Ahhh. Can't wait to see what Santa brought in those packages!

Merry Christmas! To my fellow bloggers, I look froward to hearing and seeing your Christmas memories, too!!

It's Coming, it's coming

Nope, I am not talking Santa! I am talking Cody's 1 year birthday & his party. The party will be on Feb. 7th and truth be told I have been planning it for a while. 2PM ladies. Save the date. Jeaniece, ask for it off, now. Colissa start making travel plans. :) Everyone else, save the date. Plan on coming. It is a Hot Wheels theme. I am excited about it. Can you tell?

What's that you say? He wont remember? Shah, what ever! I will will remember and the cousins might. Plus there will be at least 57 pictures commemorating the event! I am so cute, huh?

Welp, I have to get my little man up to get ready for the day. Plus we have to wrap Miss Patti's present. (It is a 12 pack of diet Mountain Dew, shh. don't tell.)

Ok, now I will add my excitement about that! It's Christmas!!!! Woo-hoo!!!

Oh, my Gosh! It's Santa! I know him!!

I love the movie Elf. Not just at Christmas time. All the time. It is great. "I like smiling, smiling's my favorite." "Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?".

So, Cody met Santa tonight. It was awesome. I know someone who knows someone who has it in good with the big guy himself. So they arranged it so we could meet this Santa and Cody could have some good first Christmas pictures. the little man forgot to smile. I think perhaps that was because he was a tad tired. Plus he was taking it all in.


When I picked him up from day care Patti and Brynne gave him his first Christmas present ever! He was all smiles then!

I wanted to post a smiling picture of me, well, almost smiling. Really this is for big Cody to see my blue eyes. For the first year ever, I think, Christmas is my favorite holiday. I don't know if it just because of the baby or what, but I love it. I am thankful for Christ's birth and our Savior coming to the earth. I love the story and the feeling of Christmas in the air. I love my family, even though my mom and grandma basically only look at the pictures and ignore the words on my blogs.
Jeaniece, Ethan and Drew came to see Santa with us. That was nice, too. Then we went to Target. What an adventure that turned into. Nothing fantastic happened. Just bedtime passing by and tired kid-lings.

P.S. Wanna know what is different about Santa this year? His beard grew on his nose. I think Cody got to it a little before some of these pictures. :)

I want to share but the sleep monster keeps getting to me

I have been working a part time temporary job after work for the last few weeks so I can pay for this big boy car seat I bought and Cody's first Christmas. I take him to work with me at the second job, but needless to say it doesn't leave me a whole lot of computer time.

I am loving this holiday season. On Wednesday our tree was decorated by the Cub Scouts in my ward. They had fun and so did I. It was so sweet of them.

Friday was my ward party and tonight was Jeaniece's. Abe, Meghan and Hudson, and Ethan and Drew came to my ward party which was a night in Bethlehem. Then tonight Cody and I joined Jeaniece and Ethan and Drew for Christmas Morning at Night in her ward.

My old home teacher offered to help let Cody meet Santa, and I am going to take him up on it since he hasn't met Santa yet. So those pictures will be coming.
