Day 361

12.28.09 - We had several nerf sword battles tonight. Andrew can be pretty lethal with that sword. He gets so into and doesn't realize how hard he's hitting. Lord help us when he gets even bigger.

Day 360

12.27.09- We went to Alexis' one year birthday party today. They had a face painter and Andrew got all done up. This kid just loves spidey.

Day 359

12.26.09 - After being cooped up in the house all day on Christmas we had to get out and burn some energy. So we went sledding. I love to watch Andrew fly down the hill on his sled. This time others were there to take pictures so I joined in on the fun.

Day 358

12.25.09 - Christmas with Andrew just keeps getting better and better. He loved all of his presents and had a blast playing with them all day. He stayed in his pj's well into the afternoon. That is the best!

Day 357

12.24.09 - We had a wonderful Christmas Eve. Lots of baking, cooking, church, celebration with friends and family. Then we did our traditions with Andrew getting ready for Santa. This year he requested Santa only eat two cookies. LOL

Day 356

12.23.09 - Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! It snowed all day today ensuring a white Christmas for us. Yeah!!

Day 355

12.22.09 - Andrew just loves his Bongo. I was playing with a new lighting trick with my camera and what better creature in our house to have hearts next to than Bongo. I think he may be the most loved monkey ever. (Andrew even has hearts on his eyes - this new trick is just way to cool!)

Day 354

12.21.09 - Nana is here! After quite the day of traveling Nana finally made it to Colorado. Andrew was beside himself and couldn't wait for her to arrive.

Day 353

12.20.09 - I picked up this little vacuum for $10 the day after Thanksgiving and Andrew has claimed it as his own. If I have it out to pick up any mess he says, "HEY!! That's my vacuum." Then he comes over and finishes the job. Fine with me!

Day 352

12.19.09 - 6 more days until Christmas! Andrew and I layed around the house today and rested because we are both sick. I'm hoping we'll be better in a few days so we can get out and enjoy this time a bit more. :-)

Day 351

12.18.09 - Tonight Andrew and I sat in front of the tree and read Christmas books. A few new ones that Nana sent along with a few favorites we've collected over the years.

Day 350

12.17.09 - Today was Andrew's Christmas program at school. It was so fun to watch him singing on the stage. He was the loudest (strongest) singer up there. He was just so into it and very animated. I love our little boy.

Day 349

12.16.09 - Today I spent the day making Blizzard Bites packages and the yummy stuff itself. I'm so glad most of it was used up for gifts. I could seriously eat a whole batch of this stuff myself.

Day 348

12.15.09 - We made chocolate dipped marshmallows today. Andrew's favorite treat right now!!

Day 347

12.15.09 - I got an early Christmas present today from my parents. Well a forced early present because I just couldn't wait. I LOVE this necklace and the saying is just perfect. When Blake said are you going to have Andrew start calling you mama again? I said "Okay I guess I should have put Mommy on there but I was Mama before I was Mommy." I didn't say this but pretty soon I'll be Mom. :( So, I'm sticking to my Mama!

Day 346

12.14.09 - Little Miss Kenleigh is having open heart surgery today. After I drop Andrew off I am taking her and her husband Starbucks (that hospital coffee is awful) while they wait for her surgery to be over. I'm at a loss as to what I can do to help out so this is all I could come up with. To just be there.

Day 345

12.13.09 - Presents are getting wrapped here and I love doing that as much as I love finding gifts for everyone. Of course Blake is the one who wraps and I just accessorize.

Day 344

12.12.09 - We headed out tonight to check out all the Christmas lights but stopped at Good Times first to have a treat while we oo'd and aw'd over the lights.

Day 343

12.11.09 - Today we went to see Princess and the Frog with a few of Andrew's friends. It was a really cute movie. Andrew's favorite character was the silly alligator.

Day 342

12.10.09 - Andrew saw Santa today! A bit overwhelmed with all of it and ended up being a little shy. (That is so NOT like Andrew.) He got on his lap and told him what he wanted and posed for the picture but as everyone kept asking him questions and he got more attention he started to shut down. :-) We were the ONLY ones there visiting Santa at the time. :-)

LOL I can't even imagine how cold it gets up there. We are supposed to get back into the 40's in a few days. It's a heat wave!

Day 333

12.1.09 - Andrew was so proud of his "folded people" It's hard to read it all because the blue crayon is so light but it says Andrew, Daddy, Mommy. I love how we are all matching. :)

Day 332

11.30.09 - I just started putting together my daily december album. Yikes!! Super late but better than never.
