Holiday Parade

A few weeks ago our town held it's annual holiday parade. Unlike the memorial day parade, this one consisted of people throwing candy. It didn't take Ben long to get the hang of catching it...and eating it:)

Besides the candy, this parade was extra special since my sister, niece, and brother and in law were in it! Ben thought it was so cool that he knew someone in the parade.

My sis!

I can't believe Christmas is 2 days away! The anticipation is killing me!

 Sucking it's thumb! I already love this peanut solo much!

And because I didn't do weekly belly shots with Ben, and it's amazing to me how much one's stomach can grow, I'll be taking weekly shots along with updates from that week.

It's crazy how much faster you start to show with the 2nd one!

Ho, Ho, Ho

Long time no post. I've been going back and forth about just shutting down this little blog, but for the moment I've decided to stick with it.

So with that being said we have a lot of catching up to do.

But for now, I'll leave you with these magical pictures:)

And since I'm nostalgic,
The only way I could get him close to Santa was to have him sit on this stool:) At least he wasn't crying.

I think every parent needs at least one crying Santa picture.

First Christmas. Still fascinated, but not old enough to be scared.
