Christmas time is a special time...


So this last week was alot of fun. I got off work early on Wednesday and off to the day care to pick up my little man. He had a Dr. app that day. He no longer has two ear infections and passed his hearing test. YES no tubes! So I went to pick him up and it was nap time. He just right up and came running to me it was so funny. He gave all his teachers their gifts and we left for some last min shopping. We went to Bath and body works and he was such a good helper. He even carried the bag up on his shoulder like a big purse it was so cute. When we got home we finished wrapping all the gifts.

This was a pretty normal day. Billy actually got off this year so it was nice to just hang out. We went to my parents house later that night and we played the wii. So normally Me and Billy can't wait. Every year we always open our gifts on Christmas eve. I told him earlier that day that I didn't want to this year. So we stayed up all night watching old family guy dvds that we've seen a hundred times. So it was like 11pm and I told Billy that I was bored and that he needed to open just one gift. So he debated with me and he did. I had gotten him the new Family Star wars movie "Something something something Darkside" So we stayed up watching that all night.
Friday--(Christmas morning)

This is where it gets fun. We woke Dax up and fed him and then let him get to the tree. He first saw his box of mega blocks. It's mostly ramps that connect to the top of the box where there are a few buttons that make noise.

We got to opening and with pictures posted below Dax got a small magnadoodle, Mr. Potato head, 4 books, a little people person, an ugly Christmas sweater. Grandma Rosie got him a cute jumper.

We then headed over to Billy's parents house. We ate and talked and exchanged gifts. Dax got a puzzle and a talking book. Billy got some thermals and something else. I got a messenger bag. It was alot of fun. Plus she made me hot wings. Oh yummy....

We then took off to my parents house. The girls were so excited and waited all day to see Dax. They both helped him open gifts they had a blast. He got a cute puppy mp3 player and a laptop looking thing that makes noise, and two new out fits, oh and his micophone. He was so scared of it at first but now he just sings in it. It's too funny.

Billy got two bow ties, a new purple sweater, and some work out stuff. I got two hoilster shirts, some other shirts, hand bands, first aid kit, come cute earrings, a picture frame and some other stuff that I can't remember right now.

One of My Holister's Tops

The new church shoes I got Billy

The sweater my parents got him.

The bow ties

I made this for my dad!

All in all me and Billy did a lot of talking and this really was a great Christmas. We didn't need to spend alot of money we just needed to be together. We didn't spend alot of money on any one including each other. We just bought a car and that was something we considered under the tree too. But to see how excited and happy Dax was and the family was great.

Pictures with Santa

So this year I was asked to take the pictures at the Church party with Santa. All the kids had alot of fun. I help set up the tree and tables. While waiting for Santa to get there we decorated sugar cookies. As I'm helping Dax I look over to see in slow motion my camera my Nikon D80 fall face first on to the floor. My heart stopped. But it's all good everything is in shape. That was a close call. Now Dax has had an off day his ear infection has been bothering him some. He has also gotten in this stage where he's being a mommy's boy. Also hitting when he gets mad. Even though it's way to cute when he does it wetry to tell him it's wrong. So with that being said here are a few of the pictures I took. Now I'm no pro and I can tell you that these are not my best work but they are still cute. These have been photo shopped a tad for they were way to dark. For some reason they really really didn't want the over head lights on so this was the best I could do. (yes, I know I could use some practice in indoor photography)

Thanksgiving, boo!, trees

Ok so it's been CRAZY at work these past 4 weeks so I finially get to blog.

So it's time to take down our flying ghost.

And replace them with christmas orniments. Dax just loves them.

We had so much fun on Thanksgiving. We went and spent the morening/afternoon with my family. We helped cook, clean, Dax slept the whole time...

Then we headed to Billy's parents house. Shelby got her braces off after having them for 3 years. We got to see granny and the boys. It was a really good time. And below you can see my child's new thing. Climb in everything. He's gets in my cubords, gets in her dresser thing, hides in boxes so after looking threw my dad's closet I found a bag with two play tents in it. So we set them up and took one home. The boyish looking one.

Later that weekend we put our tree up. I think it's looking a little lame this year I don't know what else it needs but they are all plastic as for Dax is already playing with them. And GREAT news!!! I get to take the pictures at the church party of Santa and me!!! I'm sooo excited!

We are all in the Navy

Well we have told the family. After Billy gets out of school in December he is enlisting in the Navy. After being really sad and pout about this I've really thought about it. This could be it for us. That something to get us going. I've talked to alot of people about this. Unlike the army who go out for max like 12 month his max would be 6 months. Yeah I will be sad and miss him tons but it's work. He'll be doing what he loves to do and doing it on a boat. How cool is that. Here comes the best part. With him working on the seas I would be able to get a part time job. They have free day care on base, free on base living free flight benefits ANY WHERE, and I can have another baby! Insurance is close to nothing! I've been waiting to have my second until I can quite my day job and stay home with the two of them. Haven't been able to do that yet seeing that I make the money. This also give us the chance to live on the West coast again. That's exciting to me. It's going to be hard and have it's ups and downs but after we've talked to alot of people this is really going to help us grow too. This will help Billy grow up some and help us grow with in our marriage. I'm now really excited for this. We will keep you updated on how our journey goes. Right now he's trying to lose weight before going to MEPS to do his testing.

Halloween 2009

So this Saturday we went to all the stores to hit up the halloween sales. At old Navy we got two halloween out fits for $2 each and get this 3 pairs of shoes for yes $.97 each. What a deal!

These ones I got in gold:

And these ones I got in blue:

We also headed over to target to see their sales. Well there is this line called Skelanimals. It's like an anit-fur company. Well they have a dog named Dax and I've been wanting to get something for my son. Well they had this line at target for halloween. They had Dax the dog dressed up as a mummy it was too cute and on sale! So we got it. Dax carried it around all weekend. to cute.

So on saturday we went to my parents trunk or treat at church. It was fun and had to be the closest trunk or treat in TN we've had compared to the ones in AZ. The ones in AZ were way cool.

Then after that we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house and craved/colored pumpkins. Dax had his and I carved the big one.

Then it was time to go trick or treating.

He had so much fun, we walked to the doors and he knocked while I rang the door bell.

At first he would just show the people his bag. Then he started helping them put it in his bag.

Then he started wanting to go in their houses where the parties were. It was too funny. His word of the night was WOW! Every kid who walked by for 20 mins on the way home it was WOW, cute. We had tons of fun!!

On one of my websites I'm a part of there is a group called pimp my pixels. I put up a picture of Dax and his friend Katie bug up and this is what I got back.
