Merry Christmas!

Here's another picture of us outside of the church where Graham goes to Mother's Day Out. Christmas is so fun with children!!

Graham's Christmas Program

Nana came for a visit this week. We were so excited that she could attend Graham's school Christmas program. It was very fun to see Graham on stage for the first time. He's been practicing Jingle Bells at home for a few weeks now, and the big day finally came. Once on stage, he just kind of stood there with a starstruck look on his face. I guess he was a little surprised by all the people in the audience. Regardless of if he sang any of the song, I was so proud of my little boy! Nana and Graham coloring before going to school.

Unfortunatley, my camera focused more on the heads in front of me. If you look closely, you can see Graham in the middle with the white shirt and red sweater.

Santa made an appearance to the school's Christmas party. Graham wasn't afraid to sit on his lap, but he didn't have anything to say when Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas.

Christmas Crafts

Graham helped me make some salt dough ornaments to hang on our tree and give as gifts. A friend made them with her son and passed along the recipe to me. It's very simple: 1/2 cup salt, 1 cup flour, and 1/2 cup water. Mix it together, roll out the dough, cut into shapes, and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 2 hours at 250 degrees. Graham is helping me paint the ornaments in these pictures. What fun!

Random Pics

This is Graham with his cousin, Davis, two years ago at Thanksgiving. I was looking at it to see how Wesley and Graham resemble each other. I see some similarities but they have their own look and personalities, too. Wesley doesn't seem as interested in moving. He seems to be more content to lay back and watch. Wesley has a little bit more meat on his bones right now, too.

Graham took the picture of me and Wesley. Although it's not very good of us, I was impressed he actually got our faces in the picture.

This picture cracks me up. Graham's expression seems to say, "Mom, hurry up and take the picture."

A Visit from Grandpa and M.A.

My dad and his wife, Maryann, came for a visit last week. They had not met Wesley so it was exciting to introduce Wesley to his grandpa. Graham enjoyed their visit. When I took this picture, my dad was sitting on the couch with his arm out, and Graham hopped up there and put his arm the same way. It was so funny to see him try to be like his grandpa.
