Christmas decorating has begun...

The kids are so excited for Christmas, so we started decorating last night. I'm one of those silly people who actually has  to wait until Dec 1st to start anything Christmasy (except shopping, I like to get that done early) so we put on some tunes last night and away we went. We put up a few lights, the tree, decorations and  had fun looking at all the  ornaments my Mom has bought the kids over the years. She gives each of them an ornament every Christmas so when they leave the house, they will have enough to start their own tree. It is always fun looking at all of them. I love this time of year and I love looking at our little fake tree decoated beautifully each year by excited little kids. Now if I could just find the extra stocking I bought a few years ago for future baby # 5 so all the stockings would match!

Cheeto is loved... or tortured?

The other day I tried making Cheeto a leash, so I could return the one I had bought, but it didn't go so well. I tried the bottom part on him and although it was around him snuggly, he kept getting out. After that, I didn't even worry about making the rest- the actual leash, I just stopped. I'm sure if I would have sewed the bottom part, we would have been fine, but I gave up. Last night I showed Tristin what I had started, so he had to try it on him. We made a few notes for alterations incase I tried again, so we'll see! Here's Cheeto, the poor thing!

Kara's baby shower

Yesterday was sweet Kara's baby shower so DeArley, Angie and I rode over together. It was a great shower with wonderful food! Love you Kara!

Cheeto goes to school...

It was probably the 2nd day we had Cheeto that Tristin came home from school and said his teacher would let him bring him in to show the class. On Friday at 3:00, we carried him in and let Tristin shine. He told the kids all about him and let them hold & pet him. It was pretty cute (minus the fact he needed a haircut, which he recieved last night!) While kids were waiting their turn to pet Cheeto, a herd of 5th graders started surrounding Roman like he was covered in candy or something. Before I knew it, a 1/3 of the class were playing with him, and making him smile & laugh. All I kept thinking was, Please get away from my baby, don't give him head lice, dont breathe on him, don't touch his hands because he will suck on them in 5 seconds getting whatever nasty germs you have, and please don't pick him up. I just smiled and took pictures while Tristin walked around to all his friends. Here's a few pictures!
