Chef Price & Sweet Owen

Price has started this new phase where he wants to help me do everything! He wants to help me load the dishwasher, washing machine & dryer, clean the table, bathrooms, vacuum and most importantly cook. Last week I decided that I would let him help me make a Pizza for dinner. He was excited and did very well for his first time.

For our playgroup this week we all decided to make Christmas cookies with the little ones. Price didn't do quite as well..........but hey, we did what we could!!

I am so excited about experiencing Christmas with Price. He knows that Christmas is Jesus' Birthday but I'm not sure he knows exactly who Jesus is. Everytime we see a baby, he says "Baby Jes-wus?". He is also excited about Santa bringing him "pweswents" (yeah, that's presents...good thing we have a speech pathologist in the family!)

Owen is teething badly and his new things is chewing on his foot! I try to give him his teething toys but instead of letting me know when he drops them, he just grabs a foot!! It's actually pretty cute, but hopefully not a habit he'll keep! He can also sit up.....kinda! He does very well while sitting in the boppy. If you take it away........not so much!

Owen is truly the best child. He rarely ever fusses and when he does, there is a reason. He's the happiest, most content child I've ever met. Yesterday I had a doctors appointment, did a bit of shopping and had a Christmas lunch with my LMC co-workers and he stayed awake the entire time and didn't make a peep!

Thank you, Lord, for my wonderful babies!!

It's the MOST wonderful time of the year....

December is always very busy for us but I love every minute.....
This weekend we had a fabulous weekend full of the joys of Christmas!

On Friday my best friend, Rhetta, stopped by with her little boy Hampton. It was the first time I have gotten to meet Hampton and he is even more precious in person! These pictures just don't do him justice. He & Owen cooed at each other on the floor..... I think they're already good buds!

Friday Night we went with my mom & stepdad to get the boys pictures made with Santa. Price loves talking about the presents Santa is going to bring and he loves saying "HO HO HO, MEWWY CWISSMUSS!!" so I really thought he was going to do great with Santa.....and he long as he was at least 5 feet away from him. He talked to him and waved at him.......but no sitty on his lappy!! BUMMER! Maybe next year! This year we opted for Rudolph instead!

I will say, Owen did just fabulous! :)

Friday was also Owen's 5 month birthday. He celebrated by getting his very first tooth! It's a bottom one, a canine, I think! Weird! My little vampire....

Saturday morning we went to the Columbia Christmas Parade downtown. It was freezing cold but well worth it! Price loved all the excitment!! I was amazed at how much he enjoyed the parade. Especially the fire trucks, Elmo, the marching bands and, of course, Santa!

After the Parade we went to Carter's 2nd Birthday Party at Fun Zone! Price enjoyed jumping on the jumpies and eating cupcakes!! Owen even got to jump a little himself! :)

On Sunday we had a family Christmas party to attend and it was so much fun seeing all the family we don't often get to see. There are so many children now, so Price had a blast playing with all of his cousins and everyone enjoyed loving on sweet Owen. Needless to say, we all slept very well come Sunday night!

Never say Never!

When I first got pregnant with Price several of my friends jokingly told me that I was going to be driving a minivan soon!!
My response: "NEVER will I be a minivan mama! I'm way too cool for that!!"

Well, guess what?? I must have lost some cool points along the way b/c I am now the proud new owner of a MINIVAN!! A Chrysler Town & Country to be exact!

I have been wanting one for several months now and Galena was practically giving them my loving husband took me down to the dealership and got me an early Christmas Present!!

I know most of you are getting a good chuckle......but once you start having multiple children.....You'll be calling me to ask about my ride!

Here it is!!

Yep, that's how I roll!!!
