Merry Christmas from Griffin!

My cousin and I had a fabulous Christmas!

I love my new chair!
Whoa - Santa rocks!

This is my mommy and dada - our Christmas card photo!

And this is me - smiling on the card too! Thanks, Aunt Jill, for taking such great pics!

My mom is a little blue because the holidays came and went so fast!
We had fun though and look forward to a great 2010!

Busy holiday....

We had a little reunion over the weekend to see our Humble friends. Here we are with ALL our little ones :) Class of 1995 and their babies!

Tucker and Griffin - 14 months old exactly! They share a birthday!

My sweet BFFs from many moons them so much! Jenny is now heading to Notre Dame while Amanda lives in Nashville. Not sure where I'd be without them....
We went to the Armstrongs annual Xmas sweater throw-down. See Sara's shirt??? YAY - due in June!

And to these ladies - I LOVE YOU! These are Griffin's teachers. Well, they use to be! After the holiday, G is now in the toddler room. WHAT!!?? He is getting so big, so fast. And, these sweet ladies have loved him since day one and made this paranoid mama feel so good about leaving him each day. We love you, Ms. Yoly and Ms. Cristi!

Not stopping to see more friends and celebrate with the family!

Santa, we are not a fan...

After watching Santa on TV...
...and reading book after book on him and his reindeer....
...and even responding, HO HO HO, after being asked what Santa says...
...this is what happens when he visits us at school -
My poor pumpkin - he looks terrified. It breaks my heart that I wasn't there to kiss his sweet face after he was obviously scared out of his mind. I mean, can we get a Santa that looks half way real? This man scares ME....
We'll try again next year...I think! :)

Holiday Fun!

We've passed the Christmas tree test. Now, G likes to walk by, stop, and just brush one of the ornaments with his hand and keep going.
But, there is one ornament that he continuously takes off to carry around the house.
Uh-oh - think they caught me!

We are having fun celebrating the holidays. My good friend from grad school invited me to her Pajama Breakfast, and all I can say is WOW! She cooked some DELICIOUS treats and even had "to go" bags for her cookies. Ashley, those didn't last much longer at my house. Let's just say a certain husband enjoyed your treats as well.
Thanks for including me!!

Only one more week of work then busy time in Humble! We will head home next weekend to see our best friends - it's one of my favorite parts of the holidays! Then, we return again to Humble for Christmas eve/day with the whole clan. Can't wait to see what Keaton and Griffin think of everything this year!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

....start with one ornament-stealing-wine-drinking par-tay with the coolest teachers (and former ones) on the planet.
I am beyond lucky to have found some of my best friends at my job. Here we are after our little reunion - love them!!
.....add in a little stinker in his holiday red!

.....mix in some cold weather and a holiday parade!

.....add in some chill time with our buds!

....and you have the perfect holiday!
Hope your holidays are warm and bright!
