First of all, I am putting Blogger on Santa's Naughty list. It will NOT upload my pictures right and then it messes up my words. So...I have no clue what this is going to look like.
Since becoming a blogger (after I took over Rach's job on this blog) I noticed there were a few things that circulate blog word during certain seasons. Things like First day of school pics, Halloween costumes, monthly pictures of a baby's first year, Pumpkin patch pictures, and so on.....
When these times come around, I feel like I have to uphold my duty as a blogger so I "have to" post certain pictures. So here it is: Picture with Santa. Or picture of a picture with Santa. We went to see him while we were in Dallas last week for Therapy. Yes, the house arrest boy went to sit on Santa's lap. That has GOT to be the germiest place in the universe, but I did it anyways. I didn't last year but I thought we could handle it this year. I don't know if it is better or worse, but it was one of those days that it was like 20 something in Dallas so there was no one there (yes it was outside). So we got to visit with Santa for a long time. And yes, he's real.
Kanyon did just what I thought he would do. Sit there and take it all in. I would've been really shocked if he would've cried or been really smiley. He sat there at stared at everything around him and picked a little at Santa's beard. Santa was so sweet and talked to him and kissed him (it is OK if Santa's germs get on him. They can't be bad, right?) and was so patient. I love this picture of them talking.
As you can imagine, it is hard to get Christmas shopping done when I can't leave the house. Kory has been so great to watch Kanyon a few evenings and our friends Gary and Sharon kept him one afternoon so we could get some done, but it just takes me a long time ....and I don't do well alone. So, my mom met us in Dallas last week and my Aunt Nancye and Uncle Frank watched Kanyon one evening while mom and I did some super fast shopping. It was fun and I could tell Kanyon had a great time. For some reason the pic with Nancye and Morgan got erased....see, blogger is naughty. But here he is with Great Uncle Frank who is proving to be a fav of Kan's. Cousin Morgan the college girl is holding him. We got back to get him about 10:30 and she came down the stairs waking up from her nap. Oh college days. Aren't they great?
The next few are "have to" pics too. Kid by the tree. No Christmas PJ's here...but he's been rockin' his Super Man PJ's and I love it. Can you guess why I love the dark one where he's reaching for the ornament????? Look closely....yes. The alfalfa.
He is starting to use his left are A LITTLE more when he's crawling/dragging himself/sliding across the floor. Used to he would just drag it, now he's at least pulling it out and putting it in front of him.
