The past few days ...


Let's talk about how I could be the next official Mega Blocks spokesperson.  Saul is kept entertained for 30+ MINUTES.  That in itself is a Christmas Miracle. 

Or let's talk about how the weather has been mild, therefore allowing me to have precious, quite moments alone ... outside. 

Or we could talk about that awesome post-nap bedhead. 

Or long johns under precious khaki pants. 

I could talk about my new addiction of (dark chocolate) hot chocolate with marshmellows, but there's not much need for explanation there. 

I have 2 Christmas morning pictures.  I might keep those for myself and family because they're just so precious. 

Love y'all.  I hope you had a very Merry Christmas.

Let me just throw this out there ...

Todd and I have gone on 3 dates.  This child has driven with someone other than Todd or I ... once. 

Todd and I are going to a Christmas party tomorrow night, and I'm having a little anxiety about it.  

Would it be weird to just keep him in my fur coat like rich women keep chihuahuas in their jackets?

This one's for H-Roe

Every single year, I hear this song, and mentally (or physically?) do the motions we made up to this song over 10 years ago.  So Haley - this one's for you!!

p.s - Can I get an amen for 1) this was when CHRISTMAS was priority and they talk about God sending his love and 2 ) the '90s were awesome.

This + That

I did manage to take some photos of Saul playing with Christmas lights all fancy-like, however I haven't had the time or desire to upload them to my fancy computer.  Netbooking it today. 

As I was looking through my phone, I saw a few to share. 

Yesterday, he wanted to take a super long nap.  I had to wake him up at some point because I didn't want him to be mad at bedtime because he wasn't sleepy. 
Once I woke him up, it was ON. He was very angry with me for disrupting his precious slumber.  One of the most epic meltdowns to date ensued.  

Too bad he's still insanely cute when he's crying. 

This was during a momentary break in the meltdown.  Check out the super puffy face.  I want to squish it. 
After about 30 minutes of non-stop chaos, I gave up.  What could I do, you know?  He wasn't calming down like I was telling him to.  You know what I did? 

I put his little behind in the bathtub.  Seriously turned his baby frown upside down!! WIN!

Christmas Ornaments.  Two years ago, Todd and I made every.single.ornament on our tree because we were too poor to get ones we liked.  They're all covered in twine, moss, bark, feathers, and leather. 
It took us WEEKS, but we had such a  good time every evening drinking tea, listening to jazz, and being creative together.  It's one of my favorite Christmas memories.

Saul won't keep his hands off.  He'll grab the little lights between his index and thumb and say, "Hot? Hoooot!" It's so precious, but his curiousity doesn't stop there.  He loves the ornaments, too.  I've decorated and redecorated the tree about five times now. 
That's all I got for you right now. 

I love Jesus and my little family.

Am I Weird?

Because I'm pretty sure one of the cutest sights and sounds ever is a baby with a snotty nose eating a banana.  The cute eating noises are magnified times 10.  Oh, my precious little man.

Already?? Really, Brain??

Do you know what I'm doing right now?

I'm already daydreaming about next year's garden.  Seriously???

I'm on the Bonnie website looking at stuff I can try to grow in the Spring.  I'm thinking about how convenient it would be to have fresh garlic out in my garden right now.  Onions, too. Todd wants me to try to grow Mirlitons. Until a week ago, I wasn't even quite sure what in the world that was.  I've tasted one, and to be honest, I'm still not sure what it is, but I'm up for the challenge.

Winter ... please hurry up and be over.  Spring - let's do this!
