Christmas Day 2010

I gotta say, Christmas is so much more fun with a 2 year old.

He is starting to understand the concept of the whole thing, and he gets so excited about what he gets!

His favorites?

(Ezra will be happy about this one too)

His motorcycles from Grumpa...

...and his Lightning McQueen scooter from Mom & Dad...

Grumpa's Favorite:

My gift to Gammie:

Vanna's favorite:

And, Mikki's:

My gift to Seth...(that he actually bought heehee)

And, my favorites!

Hunchback from Seth and Penguin pajamas from Santa.

The pajamas came in an adorable bag!

Had to take a picture ;)

The kid's gift for the Padres...

A blu-ray to go with their new HD TV!

And, because I couldn't get this any higher than the bottom, enjoy Porter's motorcycle noices!

We hope you had a merry Christmas!!

Probably Not A Good Idea

It's probably not a good idea to run on a treadmill when you're still coughing...

...because you may lose your balance while you almost choke.

Where We Going?

Technically, this should be before the previous post...

Porter was very excited about where we were going for Christmas!

Locks of Love

It was time for a much needed haircut.

When I get tired of my hair, I go drastic.

Sooo, I decided for the first time to donate my hair to Locks of Love!

Here's before:

And, after:

Like I said, drastic!

I love it, though!!

Shortest I've ever gone!

Checkin' Eyes

I think I know what Seth wants Porter's profession to be...

He's already got a great example.

And an apparrent interest.

Porter wants to be just like his daddy!


I caught a cold.

A mean one with a fever.

I was coughing so much I couldn't sing!

...which is actually usually the case when I get sick in general.

When it was concert time on Friday and Saturday, I was still unable to sing.

I stood up and mouthed the words on Saturday's two o'clock performance--trying to sing a few notes here and there.

I'm sure I sounded terrible.

I'm also sure I was more a distraction to the performance than a helpful performer.

So, I didn't sing at the night's performance.

One concert out of three after practicing for ten weeks, memorizing, and missing one rehearsal.

One is better than none.

Porter's Game

I've shown you some of Porter's game in a previous post...

...but what I haven't shown you is that it has made some developments.

He likes to be shot at.

Here's his "I'm hit"

His "death"

And then his "resurrection"

Someday, I'm going to have to explain to him that life isn't exactly like a video game.

Much Better

After being sick for 3 days, a fever of 103, and many a night's lack of sleep, Porter's face was back to this:

...and I looked an awful lot like this:

PS: notice his sweet new haircut!? :)

Girls Nite

A bunch of us girls got together to get away from it all for a night.

Mikelle, Tara, Brianne, Lisa, Tracy, Kristina, me, and Mindy

We had a blast!

So much fun, in fact, that they had to practically kick us out of Panera Bread after being there for almost four hours.

First of many Girls Nites to come!
