Decorating For Christmas

Last night we put up our brand spanking new Christmas tree that I stood out in the cold for Thanksgiving evening.

Now, I had no plans of standing outside to wait to get into ANY stores for the black Friday deals BUT hubby's sister and mom were going so I decided to tag along since the store they were going to had a pre-lit 6 foot tree for $30.00. Hubby and I had just recently been discussing that we needed a new tree so off shopping I went! Target was the lucky store who got some of our money!

Tonight we got out the rest of the Christmas items and the kids hung all the ornaments on the new tree. I put out some other decorations and ta da, our home is decorated.

Across the tv stand, I put the photos of our kids with Santa. Our son noticed them, walked over to one of them, and said, "Mommy, that looks like me." Awww....kids can say some cute things sometimes!

Banana Bread

While out and about with my mom this evening, hubby baked banana bread. Yes, you read that right. My HUBBY baked!

When I got home, after getting into my pj's, I went into the kitchen, cut a slice of banana bread onto a plate, grabbed a fork, and got comfy on the loveseat to enjoy it while watching some television.

Apparently my son must like banana bread too because I had no longer sat down when he joined me. He was picking at my slice of bread and I was shooing his hands away. Next thing you know, he went into the kitchen and came back with a fork. While helping himself to a bite of my banana bread, he told me, "I'll eat with you."

Clean Car

My son likes to play with my daughter's Barbie car and jeep. He puts a Barbie or two in them and then races around the house really fast.

This morning he was racing around with the car and sneezed on it which of course GROSSED my daughter out completely. After he sneezed he wiped off the car and proudly announced he cleaned it and it was "good as new."

As you can probably guess, I don't think my daughter agreed with him. :-)

Needing Sister

This morning I was sitting on the loveseat in the living room when my son woke up. I had heard him get out of bed and was waiting for him to come out of his room. He came to the doorway of his room and peeked ever so slowly around the corner until I acknowledged he was there. Once I had said good morning to him he came running over to me.

One of the first things he asked was where his sister was. When I told him she was at school his response was, "What? I need her." He was sad but quickly got over it. I think it dawned on him that sister wasn't home which meant he could go into her room, which he immediately did to get some of her toys to play with.

My son loves to put stickers on pieces of paper. This morning he found the leftover puppy stickers from my daughter's birthday party on the dining room table so I told him he could have them.

When I gave them to him, the thought of what he ended up doing with them had not crossed my mind. A few minutes after walking away with the sheet of puppy stickers, he proudly came up to me and said, "I put them everywhere!"

I followed him into the hallway and he had put them EVERYWHERE! He had them stuck on walls, door frames, and even on one of the toys in his room. Thankfully he bragged about what he had done right after doing so before they got TOO stuck on and also bragged about it before he had put ALL the stickers everywhere.

We went around and gathered all the stickers so he could put them onto a piece of paper. After doing so, he wanted to take them off the paper and put them back on the sticker sheet. Boy does he love stickers!

Words Of Encouragement

When my hubby has some free time to sit and relax, one of the things he enjoys doing sometimes is playing games on his computer. Both of our kids enjoy sitting watching daddy do this.

This rainy Sunday morning, we are all having a lazy day, still lounging around in our pj's. Hubby sat down to play a game online and yep, you guessed it. Both of our kids got their front row seats to watch.

I heard our son giving daddy some words of encouragement as he was playing. I heard our son saying, "Wow! Awesome! Good job daddy!" Bet that made daddy feel good!
