They also each (including Sam!) got one of these
although Sam got this one
Sam also got a chamois crib sheet, which for those of you who don't know, is the softest thing I have ever felt, bar none. We'll wash it tomorrow and put it in her crib. It should keep her very toasty warm!
We are celebrating Christmas with the fam, my mother and sister, and my nephew
today; we do the ils this coming weekend... dh only has today off so we didn't want to go down and have to come up the same day... Cute presents though! C got a kitchen last year for Xmas... He loves it. I was freaked about how much it cost at the time, but it is definitely a good buy...

I can't believe that she's already going on 6 months and I also can't believe that she's doing so much. I keep on telling her slow down a bit! I'm trying to enjoy every single moment and take it in! I want these moments to last forever!
Yeah Kaya! We are still on 3 teeth ourselves and are mastering our crawl. Having issues with clothes right now though.. Too big for size 9mo too small for size 12 mo... *sigh* gonna have to do some after Xmas shopping...

We don't even have a tree. And we didn't buy anything for da babeeee. Da babeee is sitting there playing with metal mixing bowls, which rate very highly.
We did the full tree and everything cause C is starting to understand the whole thing now. Kind of neat to actually have a kid finally be able to understand... Harper's greeting card was awesome as well! Thank you!!! All professional looking and stuff... J got a couple gifts, he got his robeez (which um, got broken out early cause I needed help keeping those dang socks on..., like one activity toy and the goodnight moon dvd set (which I am sure C will watch more but needed to put something with J's name under the tree...) and then we needed to refurbish his wardrobe which we will be doing this week I guess...

Luckily, she loves it.
I had issues finding xmas PJs for the boys too! It was so crazy out there...Finally found something at Old Navy~ C loves his--he spilled water on them while brushing his teeth and actually didn't want to instantly take them off! MY SON!! He usually spills 2 drops and needs a new wardrobe... And J got some in 12-18 months and they aren't even that long on him...
: I am so not used to this big baby thing...

Well, I'm cooking a turkey today. Wish me luck. I haven't cooked one for about three years. We're going to wine and feast tonight. Tomorrow, we're going to watch Christmas movies in bed all day. We might go see Charlotte's Web in the theater. We like to go to the movies on Christmas. Last year we saw King Kong. And I'm rambling about nothing.
I am so going to have to switch the car seat soon. I am avoiding because then it means I have to invest in like 2 or 3 new ones so I don't have to pass the seat back and forth... *sigh*
We do the movie thing on Christmas eve normally. This year we did it on Saturday though. It so much fun to just sit around and veg with family...

So, on the way home from church tonight, my nephew (almost 4 years old) had an "accident" in his booster seat. I guess he was just too excited to remember to go to the bathroom earlier... Anyway, that's not the funny part, 'cause he was a bit embarrased. BUT, after he got a bit cleaned up, de-pantsed, wrapped in a blanket and put back in the car to finish the drive, he said "It's a good thing my penis isn't up here [pointing just below his nipple], 'cause then my shirt would be wet, too."
Ahhhh... out of the mouths of babes.
Dan helped me finish my project for my Mom, so now I need to go wrap it and go to bed. Merry Christmas, y'all!
This almost 4 age is pretty funny. Conversation with C and Mom:
C: Christian has a chachi (note: korean word for penis~we use it instead of penis)
M: Yes, C has a chachi
C: Jonah has a chachi
M: Yes, J has a chachi
C: Daddy has a chachi
M: Yes, D has a chachi
C: Mommy NO chachi
M: No Mommy doesn't have a chachi...
Then next day
C: Mommy doesn't have a chachi????
M: No, Mommy doesn't have a chachi
C: Mommy chachi GONE!?!?
M: Well, Mommy never had a chachi
C: Mommy NO chachi???!!
M: Mommy no chachi....
He was so devastated by it.
Anywho we are doing our dinner now so Merry Merry Christmas to those celebrating. And to those not, enjoy special time with family and babes.
