My 3rd Christmas

On Christmas Eve we started out with a lazy morning. Then we piled into the red car and went to brunch with Santa. It was a big buffet in a fancy room. They had a low buffet table for kids which was much appreciated. Then some loud music started and the big man himself walked in! It was very exciting. Besides Santa, they had face painting and balloon animals.

When we got home Dad went to get groceries. Mom and I baked.Then she tried to put me down for a nap.I knew they were busy getting ready so I decided to skip my nap to help. Mom loved having me handle her Christmas dishes.

In the evening, Grandma, Grandpa, Cousin Trevor, Aunt Sue, and Uncle Rob came over.We had dinner and then hung around. The best part was Trevor showed me the NORAD Santa tracker.

Then came Christmas morning. I woke up grumpy and I couldn't figure out what Mom and Dad were all excited about. I wanted to watch garbage truck videos but they kept bugging me about going into the living room to see presents. So we…

Attack of the Cold Virus

Mom and I had a big adventure this week. Unfortunately we went on our adventure with nasty colds. On Wednesday we flew to Michigan. When we got there, Grandma and Grandpa picked us up. Mom lost her voice so she had to whisper my night-night stories.

Because we were full of germs we kept a low profile.  Grandma got sick with a tummy bug so she went into hiding with us.

Mom took me to one of her favorite places called Turkey Roost. She tricked me into eating turkey by telling me it was chicken.

Grandma and Grandpa gave me a tractor. Once I figure out how to steer I'll really be zipping around the neighborhood in it. I enjoyed helping Grandpa put it together by handing him tools, including my favorite, the hammer. I also loved pretending to put gas in my tractor.

On Saturday we finally felt mostly better. Mom and Grandma took me to Santa's House in Midland. His house is magic! It is full of elves, trains, nutcrackers, toys, snow, airplanes, and so much more. Mom was so proud of…

Go Bye-Bye

On Friday Paige and Maura and their Moms came over so the Moms could work on Christmas parade stuff. I didn't mean to be rude, but I wanted Mom's attention to myself that day so I told Maura's Mom to go bye-bye.

I'm working on developing enough language skills to embarrass Mom. I'm getting close. When Mom said she was going to take a shower, I said to her "get nude." When she said she was going to the bathroom I said "go poo-poo." It won't be long now before I can articulate something that will make her blush.

On Saturday Mom and Dad were busy with the parade so Grandma and Grandpa came over to hang with me. That evening we went to Outback for dinner and everyone couldn't believe how charming I was. Part of it was because I had my new Christmas snake stuffed animal. He kept biting everyone (in a friendly way).

Last night Mom and Dad took me to see some light show at someone's house. Boring. I kept saying "all done" and &q…

Lots of Preparation

Mom and Dad have been really busy around the house. Dad put lots of lights outside and Mom has been hiding on the computer working on parade stuff. Christmas sure needs a lot of preparation! They went to a Christmas party on Saturday and Grandma and Grandpa came over to hang with me.

Yesterday Mom took me shopping with her. She wanted to get some Angel Tree gifts purchased, but I found it more interesting to look for myself. I really enjoy the Sesame Street collection at Target. Sometimes I get frustrated because they don't let you take the toys out of the box at the store. Tonight I helped Mom make some cookies. In exchange for my hard labor, she let me eat one!

I discovered a way to get your parent to pay attention to you lighting fast. Sometimes I break the faucet in my kitchen. Then Dad needs to fix it with glue, a screwdriver, and a wrench. Dad was gone and Mom was hanging with me. Mom was in the potty.  I didn't want to wait for Dad to come home to help me fix the faucet…
