Daycare had picture day with Santa today and since we hadn't made it to the mall to have his picture with Santa, I of course HAD to be there.Craig and I decided to dress him up in the Ugly Christmas Sweater I had gotten him for our annual party that didn't happen this year since the Gators stunk at Football.
Daycare has started giving him his paci because he's been going around and "collecting" all the other kid's pacis to chew on them. Still doesn't suck on it.

No smiles??

Needless to say he wasn't thrilled about meeting Santa, I tried twice and he just wasn't having it! Oh well. Santa is still going to bring him a toy!

Weekend Tidbits

Keeping track of him in the cozy cabin was easy

The new cabin!

The cold weather has brought some rosy cheeks, hanging out in his Go-Pod while we eat dinner.

First Snowman!

With Grandma Carol

We drove for about 45 minutes up into the Smokey Mountains to find snow that hadn't melted from snow fall they had earlier in the week. We found a picnic area.

A waterfall just off the road. One side was still flowing while the other was frozen.


Grandma and Grandpa gave him a bath.

He does sleep!! He fell asleep around 7 that night but of course woke up at 2:30 and wanted to play instead of going back to sleep.
After we left the cabin and drove back to Atlanta this is what the cabin looked like...
Bummed we missed it but maybe another time.

Weekend Tidbits

Friday night I went to Advent by Candlelight at church, it was a very nice night with the other ladies from our church.
Susan, Amy, and I
Then on Saturday we went to Kinsey Family Farms in Cumming to cut down our Christmas tree. Fraser firs are not grown locally in Georgia (you have to go to North Carolina for that), so we got a leyland cypress.

Having fun at the farm!

Family photo!
Sunday I started trying to decorate our tree and my twinkle lights didn't work so it is on hold until after I go to Target.
But we did complete another project... We moved Ben's mattress down, since he is pulling himself up it was time. Our little boy is getting big.

We ran some errands Sunday evening and then stopped at Corner Pizza for dinner. When they brought the pizza to the table I had to do some rearranging and moved Ben's veggies too close to him, after she walked away we looked at Ben and he had dumped the entire container of pureed baby food on him and the highchair. Then began to wipe it on his face and hair.
The picture is a little blurry, he was a Hot. Mess.

Ben's Lucky Day!

Yesterday when I came home my newest prize winnings was waiting for me...

A KidCo Go-Pod

it is their newest product, a portable activity center. It folds up to the size of a bag chair. I'm so excited about this since Ben loves the Exersaucer and the Jumperoo, it will be very handy to have this for trips or even while visiting friends.

We set it up and I attached a few toys to it put him in and it was this...
Really the only picture I got that his mouth was closed, he was giggling so much...
and this...
I see many fun times in the future!

Ben is one lucky dude to have a lucky mom like me... he's one of the first kids in the country to have Go-Pod!!
