Before Santa
Watching Santa
With Santa

Ben loved seeing Santa or Santi (what Ben likes to call him) except when he had to sit with him. I was really hoping this year would be different, oh well!!! There's always next year!

Christmas Pageant

Ben had his Christmas Pageant yesterday. It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen. All the children were under the age of four. I was worried that Ben would run to us as soon as he saw us but he stayed put. He was beyond excited!!! I think that Ben thought all the people there were to see him. He never sang a word but smiled the whole time. After each song Ben would stand up and clap. It was a very fun day!

Christmas Meme

This came from a bloggy friend and I thought it was fun. If you want to play along leave a comment to tell me! :)

1.) Have you started your Christmas shopping? Yes, still have a way to go.....

2.) Tell me about one of your special traditions. We always make the same thing every Christmas morning, caramel rolls and egg casserole. I look forward to it all year long!

When do you put up your Tree? The day after Thanksgiving. I can't wait to get up the decorations as soon as possible. It makes me so happy.

Are you a Black Friday shopper? Nope.

Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home? We stay home and will always stay home now that we have Ben. We always want our children to wake up at their own home on Christmas morning.

What is your funniest Christmas memory? The first Christmas that we spent with my parent when we were married was funny because my uncle kept refilling Jason's glass all evening so that by the end of the night neither one of them could stand up. It wasn't as funny at the time but I laugh so hard when I think about it now.

What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time? I love Christmas Vacation and Love Actually.

Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat? YES, YES, YES!!!! I love the peanut butter kiss cookies and frosted sugar cookies.

Fake or Real Tree? We have a fake tree. My husband is in insurance and says that the real ones are too dangerous! He loves to tell me how a whole room can be engulfed in flames in one minute if a tree catches on fire.

What day (as a Mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done? Usually the day after Thanksgiving.

Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve? Not usually, maybe stocking stuff.

What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas? I really like everything! It's my favorite holiday by far!

What Christmas craft do you like the best? I like making a gingerbread house if I have time.

Christmas music? Love it all! I only get to hear the songs for one month, so I use that to my advantage.

When do you plan to finish all your shopping? The week before Christmas so that I don't have to go to the mall when schools out!

I have some VERY exciting news...............Ben will have a baby sister come spring time!!!!!

I've been waiting to say anything since I had two miscarriages earlier in the year. Things look good so far but I'm considered very high risk because of what happened with Ben. Please keep me in your prayers if you can. Thanks!!!!
