We went to go pick out a Christmas tree right after a big snow and in freezing cold, it proved to take a lot less time then I'm used to with the tree perfectionist (my mom) we picked up two trees shook off the snow and brought the second one home with us
JJ really liked looking at the tree and did pretty well with touching it.
For the grandparents we decided to go handmade so JJ and I set out to draw some sharpie mugs and bake them. They turned out so cool! now I need some for us!
To celebrate with the Looney family we got together and made all kids of delicious candy and cookies! YUM!
We celebrated Christmas with Kim and Kathy at their place, and even went to their Christmas party to meet Santa. JJ loved playing with the new basketball hoop and even made a great shot!
JJ wasn't too sure about the whole meeting Santa thing, we prepped by meeting Santa at the mall and JJ talked with him but didn't want to sit on his lap. The only reason he was ok with this Santa was the candy prize.
We had our very own Christmas in our house just the boys and I.
JJ wasn't sure what was going on right when he woke up but he got into the swing of thing pretty fast.
Justin and I got each other some great gifts this year! I even got a chop saw, and I cant wait to find a project to break it out! Justin got JJ a set of mini golf clubs (so fun! and dangerous)
I have been trying to make something for JJ so far and I found this tent idea and he ended up loving it, they now use it for hide and seek and even a soccer goal.
can you tell Justin was surprised when he opened his present?
JJ gave GG's gift a big thumbs up!
We really had a great start to our Christmas season, and are so grateful to be in a home of our own!
