Christmas Cards

For those of you who didn't get a Christmas card from us...don't feel bad! No one did! The truth is that we didn't have a picture of the three of us. Not even a bad one. I could have used just a picture of Braden, but I haven't had a good picture of him since he started walking. I could have just given regular cards, but you actually have to write in those! And let's be honest, you really like the cards with pictures better anyway. So although we did not send Christmas cards, we have been thoroughly enjoying the ones we have gotten. There is a sterilite box fully of maternity clothes just below our Christmas card "tree" and Braden enjoys climbing up there and looking and naming the people he knows. He looked so cute this morning I had to take a quick picture before he jumped off.

So You Think You Can Dance?

Ben and I love watching So You Think You Can Dance. One of the funniest things about it is as soon as the music starts for each dance Braden immediately starts bobbing his head or dancing. We could never quite capture it on video until tonight. Maybe because tonight was the finale he pulled out all his best moves, including some new ones. Enjoy!

A Visit to Santa

Braden and I are in Savannah this week visiting my sister and her boys. Today we ventured to the mall to see Santa. We even bought matching sweaters for the boys. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, Braden was not a fan of Santa. He smiled at him and waved at him but there was no way he was going to sit with him. It was really funny. Finally I decided to hold him beside Santa. I'm glad they cropped me out of the picture (except for my hand). It's not the best picture, but it certainly captures their personalities at this age.

We woke up this morning to our first snow of the season. It's not a lot, but we still had fun playing in it. We used most of the snow in our front yard for a snow man!
