Little mister is down for his morning nap, so I thought I'd steal a few minutes and get on here and update. Updates will likely be scarce through the weekend, as I don't know when I'll have a chance to get on. Aaron took tommorrow off, so we will be heading up north to visit with his grandma and aunt and uncle (hi guys!) and then in the afternoon we will head over to my mom's and see my aunt and cousins for a bit. Tommorrow night is also Holly Joy-Joy's birthday party, so we will head on down to our favorite karaoke place for a bit.
Saturday during the day I believe we are celebrating w/ aaron's side of the family, and Saturday evening we are going to my dad's side. Christmas day will be spent at my mom's. Busy weekend!
Aaron is beside himself with the waiting... he is so excited to see me open my gifts from him that he is just chomping at the bit like you wouldn't believe. He's always been mr. laidback when it comes to holidays/birthdays etc... so to see this excitement and anticipation is really cool. I thought I had a clue as to what he got me, but the pieces of the puzzle just don't fit together with what I thought he got me. I won't divulge my guesses here until after christmas (I doubt I am even close anyway) but you will be able to see why I'm confused.
every day though he's been saying "want to open our stockings?" "want to open nolan's gift to you?" "why don't we just open something we got for nolan?" and on and on and on. I gave in a few days ago and we each picked one thing out of the stocking we filled for each other to open. I got a really oool pink pen, and he got a mini walkman radio.
then last night he was at it again, so I gave in and we opened our stockings to each other, as long as he promised that we'd wait for everything else until christmas. I have to say, he did really well w/ the stocking. Mama got a new eminem cd in hers! woohoo! As well as a bunch of other cool stuff. I hope he liked his stuff too; Nolan got a dvd and a shitload of socks in his. heh.
Well, I should get going and make the christmas cookies I was planning on making. I want all of these damn sweets out of MY HOME asap. I am not even going to go into how many of those damn pretzel candies I have shoved into my damn mouth.
He cracks my shit up when he does this... reminds me of a puppy dog the way he bites down and rears back.
It's hard to tell here, but Nolan was eating and totally cracking up when Asa came up and sat on him. He loves it when the cats show any recognition at all.
He loves asa.
Fool, you cr-aaaaayyyzzzzaaayyy
Something is a twitter.
our little ballerina boy. this cracks us up too.
while I don't have much time to devote to the other babies anymore, they aren't completely neglected. Here I show ben my love w/ a little hat torture.
one of nolan's great-great aunts in california sent him this outfit. (ok, really this pic is for my mom... I think aunt pauline sent this.)
check out those eyelashes... they have just come in thicker over the past month or so.
don't know why, but I love this one too.
