Can you imagine Rob and I doing this at our wedding? This made me laugh so hard today I had to share it.

I know it's not even December yet BUT...how can one resist seeing this little face with Santa? He was all smiles and laughing with Santa but when the camera was on him..it was all business. Wonder what he asked for?
We are really in the Christmas spirit at our house and I am eager to watch Elf again this year. I love to replay it over and over again when Will Farrell finds out Santa is coming and yells "SANTA!"

This morning we got up to cheer on Hope as she ran her half marathon. We enjoyed the cool morning breeze while sitting at an outdoor cafe while Hope ran her heart out. You can check out her blog for the details.
We are in Christmas OVERDRIVE around here. Mom leaves for Kimmy's this Thursday so we have been decorating fools at my house. The mantel, the tree, the outside. Rob managed to hang the lights on the roof and not fall off so I am very happy.
Pictures of all our decorations to follow, if I weren't so lazy I'd take pictures now and post but..I watched a marathon this morning so I am tired! ha ha
Cooper of course was the supervisor...watching us act crazy as usual!

So for today, I will work, take care of Cooper and shop for my Thanksgiving dinner items one at a time. I will take the lesson from Cooper and just stay focused on what is in front of me, nothing more.

My sister Kim's baby is due in 5 weeks and since she lives in Maryland, the family has been recording ourselves reading stories to the baby. My sister wants to play these stories at bedtime so the baby hears our voices even though we live in Florida.
We read a few stories (does everyone think the sound of their own voice is the most annoying sound ever????) and I propped Cooper up in his reading corner. He is way to small I know but I keep propping him up on things and taking pictures.

Having a boy made me think I couldn't do it but I think it turned out ok and not too girly ( my husband's concern). Once Cooper is old enough to pull on it, it is coming down but for now, I like to just sit in the room to enjoy looking at the veil and my mobile from when I was a baby that my mom saved for me that we now use have on Cooper's crib.
One of the best things I have ever seen in a long time are these easy to stick on decals you can use to create sayings, add your child's name to the wall, etc. Pottery Barn and others have them but I got my here on ebay.
My husband tells people he free handed it on. If you don't know him MAYBE you'd believe him but neither he or I can draw a straight line so...you can tell this is very easy to do.
We are NOT artistic people and we love how this turned out since now it looks like we are.
I bought other decals for another part of the house (iron looking designs and the word Family) at AC Moore...I haven't tried them out yet but will let you all know if they work out. I see they have chalkboard peel and stick decals so for those of you I know who may want to try out chalkboard paint this may work too.

So I usually forget the day but this year I didn't forget....I just didn't get a chance to call or email. I am a bad friend! So...here's you to your 20th birthday (we are still only 20 right???) Mere!
PS- Why can't I find any recent pictures of you and I except of my wedding 2 years ago??? Maybe because we only take pics of Brody and Cooper now? LOL

Today we went to our first (of many I am sure!) birthday parties. We celebrated Brody's second birthday in style with an Elmo themed party. Aside from Brody eating the cards and any other paper he could find, my favorite moment was watching his Ya Ya play with Mr Potato Head ("doesn't this hand look too high?" she asked as she poked the arm in the ear hole)....I am still laughing over the fun we had. Cooper of course you can see from the picture, slept almost the whole time.
It was a beautiful weekend with clear skies, cooler weather with less humidity, I hope it stays. It is November but Florida is not known for seasons so I'll take what I can get...my waist wasn't sweating this weekend so I considered it cool.
This is my last week of materity leave, where did the 8 weeks go? I am so lucky to work from home I really have no complaints but I don't miss customer calls with problems, cold calling and price negotiating. But...sales is what I do for a living so I guess I better get to it when I am back officially next week. Until then I am going to do my best to enjoy every day this week without messing up my schedule. That is : The Today Show all morning, the Veiw, the Young and the Restless, Ellen then Oprah. Oh yeah...and I watch play with Cooper, take pictures, email and go on blogs in between all my TV watching ;)

|Cooper took his first trip today over to west coast to pick up his Nana and to meet and visit with his Auntie and cousin. He was great on the trip, slept in the car most of the way and was alert and playful while we were visiting. Now after his bath, he is wiped out cold sleeping away...hopefully for the next 5-6 hours :) I too am really tired all of a sudden, the 4 hours in the car (there and back) can get to you I guess when you aren't really even doing anything. I forget what mess traffic can be in the in that area...I don't miss that over here on my sleepy side of the state. It was a nice day but it is good to be home.|
