I am 39 weeks today!
 this is why I locked the cabinets....he finds everything!

Day Twenty two ... Tradition

Day 22
 With this being Griffin's first Christmas we decided what better time to start a new tradition....
A picture with this same Teddy every year (thanks Mary for the idea!)

 checking out the bear....He has a little PTSD from Santa....

And a couple I am carrying over from my parents...
 this calender was my favorite thing to do as a child...move the my mom gave it to me to share with my kiddo
Every year my mom gets a new decoration with the year on it....mine started this year...2012!
 and the famous candies my mom makes....
this is the first year I made them all by myself! (well she helped with the dipping)  I owe her a ton for all the times while I was growing up and said "seriously mom, can't you just make one more batch?  Its just candy how hard can it be???"....Well they are SERIOUSLY time consuming!  Sorry mom!  I appreciate your candy making so much more now!   

We have a few other traditions we will be starting with Griffin and a few carrying over from my parents but we will save those for another day!

Day Twenty ... Tree Topper

Day 20
Tree Topper 
The G is the top from our wedding cake :)

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for 1st experiences!

Today was the big day!  Griffin was going to sit on Santa's lap!  He met Santa a couple weeks ago and wasn't scared so I thought today might be okay.

(I told myself a long time ago to let my expectations go of this sweet little cozy moment where G just hugged his neck and it was perfect.....and its a good thing too.)

Oh man what an started out great...G looked super cute and we met Nana and Granddaddy so they could see his first time with Santa.

 waiting to see the big guy ... (can you tell Griff just spotted him...)
 Griffin and I were so happy Joe got to go into work a little later so he could come and be there!

The big moment arrived!  Here we go...
 Check G out looking up at him...this was the moment he realized this is NOT okay!
and then this happened...
 it went from bad to real loud!
 then to just down right pissed!

So I tried to sit with him....
then both daddy and mommy tried ...
(Cracked me up....Santa just kept a smile and giggled the entire time)

SO we picked him up from the "scary" mans lap and tried to make him smile by doing the fun things....


k that didn't work so how about this...

Naughty or nice

 it was close but it turns out he was nice

nothing made him happy....until...
 He got down and got to walk around with Granddaddy

Griffin has officially taken 2 this is all he wants to do now

What a funny it is....the official first picture with Santa
its a picture of the picture with my cell phone, kinda blurry

I am 38 weeks today!

and not a fan of Santa
