Christmas Morn

Christmas PJs

I attempted to make the family some pajama pants. I made a lot of mistakes, but I learned oodles.

Thank You, Santa!

Yesterday something a bit stunning happened. Ethan sat on Santa's lap. There were no tears, no screams, no kicking, punching or resisting. He just got on Santa's knee in a business-like manner and stated his Christmas wishes. I was present, so I got to hear Santa say to him, "Now, if you want me to bring you some presents, you need to be a very good little boy for your mom and dad...okay?"
Fast forward to that evening. Ethan is holding still and actually letting me put his undies on after tub time. I comment on how marvelously still he is being. He then says, "Mom, do you know why I am being so nice to you? Because I want GOOD presents for Christmas!"
Excellent. Now all we have to do hold that over his head and remind him what Santa said and he snaps into an obedient young man. Ha! Thank you Santa! (aka Matt Tuttle!)

Birthday Boys

Eric hit 29 years of age on November 16th and Ethan hit the ripe ol' age of 4 on December 1st. Both joyous occasions were celebrated with cake, ice cream, gifts and our cute little family. I think it was more of a shock to me this year that I have a 4 year old than that my husband is almost 30. I remember telling my mother in law when Eth was a newborn that I couldn't imagine him getting any older than 3. It remains true! Year 2 and 3 seemed like no big deal. Four?! My kid is, well, a big boy! I started remembering my life around 4. I started remembering my mom around 4. And my mom was a lot more mature in those memories than I am now! Yikes!
As for Eric and nearly being 30...well, I always thought 30 was pretty darn old. Now? I'm not so sure. Thankfully, I personally, am nowhere near 30...tee hee...
