Connor: "Mom, it is just so hard to believe"
Me: "Believe what?" Knowing full well what he was talking about!
Connor: "Kyle said that Santa is just the parents getting the presents. Mom is it you that is doing it?"
Me: "You have to believe to get presents from Santa"
Connor: "Well, I want to believe"
I am just not good in these type of situations. It just makes me so sad that he is getting so old so quickly. I am hoping we can just get past this Christmas and then we may have to have the conversation with him about Santa and try to convince him to not tell his brothers!
We still made cookies for Santa and he wants to give the reindeer their food. It is so cute because he really does want to believe! Those darn kids at school, can't they just keep their thoughts about Santa to themselves!!!

I have been reading the book "The Tale of Despereaux" to the boys this past week. Hopefully we can finish it up tonight or tomorrow and go watch the movie. At least get us out of the house! The boys have enjoyed the book. It has short chapters so we are taking time out here and there to read a chapter or two. I have even been reading while they eat breakfast and lunch. I want to continue even more than them sometimes!!
I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season! Whew! I will try to be better at keeping up the next few weeks!

Ordered something on line and after I paid realized that it was on back order. You're kidding me right?! It better arrive before Christmas.
Tried to bake cookies and either got the batches too done or not done enough! They took a crap load of ingredients too!
Pulled clothes out of the dryer and found mysterious yellow spots on almost all of them! I have checked every pocket and found nothing!
Going to bed...hoping tomorrow is a better day because it will be my birthday!!!

Now that Connor is playing basketball, his games are on Sunday. So Jim took Connor and Davis to Connor's basketball game and I got to take Carson to the football game...Darn! :) It is always so much fun to just have one on one time with the boys. It does not happen very often, but when it does I really try to take advantage of it! In a few weeks, Jim and I are taking the other two boys to a game. They really are lucky boys!!
Thank you Carson for a fun day at Lucas Oil Stadium!!!

I love this time of year...now if I could just snap my fingers and have everything wrapped!

Then my brother was born, and I was forced to share a room with her. Sharing a room was not near as much fun as sneaking into her room in the middle of the night!
My two younger boys found sleepers in their drawer that they wanted to wear, and it had finally gotten cold enough for them to do that. Connor was so disappointed that he did not have any. So off to Target I go, and of course they did not fail me or Connor. Thank heavens for Target!
It is fun to see the boys enjoy their sleepers as much as I did!

My husband loves to use things up and clean things out, so he got in the freezer and not only got the chicken nuggets and bagel bites, but added hash browns that would have probably stayed up there for another 6 months! He got leftovers out of the refrigerator and warmed them up and let the boys pick what items they wanted. He made up a ticket for each boy and asked them what they wanted and marked it off on the ticket. They could even have pop that night!!
Leftovers are never fun, at least for me, but when you put a little twist on them it can be fun!
Good job Jim on making it fun!!
At the end of dinner, Jim jokingly gave them a bill for a ridiculous amount. The boys got a laugh out of it.
