Christmas Eve
Christmas Eve is finally here. Let the madness begin. Ryan is still snuggled up in bed with his two bears. He wouldn't go to sleep last night without them. I think it is because we are at Pop and Granny Damesworth's. They tried to get him to sleep with them last night which resulted in some MAJOR screaming. Poor baby couldn't catch his breathe. He just wanted Mommy. So we snuggled for a while before I finally got him to lay down to go to sleep.

Ryan found his wagon with blocks before I could get them wrapped. Needless to say they aren't going to be wrapped. :) 

He was fascinated with the snowmen and dog in the floor.  

 He was so excited about the blocks and then Pops got out a ball. Of course his attention then was on "ballball"

Fast asleep snug in his bed after almost 10 hours of sleep. Nana and Papa must have worn him out yesterday.

Merry Christmas

Getting ready for Christmas

Are you ready for Christmas?? 

Kids say the funniest things. Ryan is always saying something funny.
This morning Ryan woke up saying "dog." I thought that he wanted the stuffed dog that my dad brought home for him, but no he wanted a hotdog for breakfast. He went to the refrigerator  and whined until I opened it. He then dug through my meat drawer until he found his hotdogs. Kids are just too funny. 

He is growing up way to fast. He is always bringing me some toy and then the wrapping paper wanting me to wrap it and put it under the tree. He is slowly learning that we cannot touch the tree or pull the bows off the presents. 

We are almost ready for Christmas just need to get three more gifts and I think we will be done. So ready for Christmas Eve. That's when we are doing our Christmas at our house. I don't want to be rushed on Christmas morning because we have to be in Columbia for lunch. 

Holiday Traditions
I have to work the day before Christmas Eve which is when we normally have Christmas at my parents house so things are going to be slightly different. I am definitely going to miss the pizza that we have before we open our gifts. We are probably going to have a super early Christmas this year since I work Wednesday and Thursday. 
What is your families tradition for Christmas? What is something special you do? Please Share!

Have fun getting ready for Christmas! See you all again soon!

Long Day At Home

Day Off At Home

I had my first day off with absolutely nothing planned to do. So I put it to good use. I slept late and enjoyed EVERY minute of it. Ryan woke me up, and our day begun. We played non-stop until after a lunch of spaghetti-o's. Afterwards, of course, Ryan had to have a bath.  

I managed to get the living room clean, dishes washed, and start on some Christmas presents while Ryan took a nap. After his nap, he wanted me to lay in the floor with him and play while we watched Elmo Pets.  

It is weird to have went all day with Chase not being home. He had to drive to Birmingham, Alabama to make a delivery for work. We are SO thankful for the work, but I am not sure how he is going to feel about driving to Alabama or Arkansas for delivery's. 

I hope to get a camera for Christmas. I miss not being able to take pictures and post them. My camera works but it says the batteries are dead after only taking a few pictures. Something is wrong with it, to say the least.

I need ideas on Birthday and Christmas presents for Chase. His birthday is the 18th. We are thinking about going to Nashville to celebrate, but I would like to get him something else as well. I have yet to get started on Ryan's Christmas. I have NO idea what to do on our extremely tight budget now days. If grandparents are getting him toys, I think I will be getting him clothes and diapers to open. 

I really enjoy writing a blog. It helps to get my thoughts collected before my busy life is whisked off to something else. 

I hope everyone had a Totally Terrific Thursday
