In other Holiday news we got to have Christmas with our Nana last night. Today we had many little friends over to make ornaments. They really didn't turn out like I hoped but it was nice to see our friends. It was a little tight with four adults and nine childern but it worked.. Paige tried to hang with the big boys and play catch while Owie stuck close to his mama...
I'm starting to get comfortable with this stay-at-home thing, but only 4 more days till I'm a working gal again. I'm just fortunate that I not only have the best job in the world, Mommy to Paige and Owen, but I also love being a school social worker.

He has started to carry books to us wanting us to read to him. He gets a little frustrated when it's a big one and it's difficult to carry. I have to confess that today I hid "brown bear, brown bear', because after two days of it I just couldn't take it anymore. He quickly returned to his two other favorite's 'Here comes Halloween' and 'Star War Heros'.
Paige also likes to be read but she would rather climb over something or play with her blocks. Several times a day she will come and try to take away the book that I'm reading to Owen. I think it's her way of saying "enough with him mom, come play with me".
We had a wonderful Christmas in Carlsbad at our Aunt Julie's house. We had to head there a day early to beat the snow and good thing we did. It snowed for two days straight! The babies loved that they could actually touch Aunt Julie's tree and got out in the snow for the first time. Owen also loved Jalie's cat Pixie... He followed her around and would pet (hit) her any chance he got. Paige loved playing in Jalie's American Girl Doll sleigh, so much so we finally moved it into the living room so she could crawl in and out as much as her little heart desired. I'm loving my long break and spending all this extra time with my sweet little babies! Now it's time for New Years... I can't wait to see the changes it brings with Paige and Owen.

After texting, emailing, and talking to 4 car dealers, we took the plunge and bought a mini van. That's right. We're cool! It was a little stressful because I mostly handled it on my own. It was a nice little test of independence but no real need to 'go independent all over your daddy's ass'.. let's see if I can remember why that is so funny ten years from now.. we r headed to carlsbad now and so far I really dig it.

I think if daddy had his way we would have done this weeks ago. I was having a hard time thinking of cutting his hair because I knew it would make him look more like a little boy and not a baby.. nana was gonna cut it but while she was getting her hair cut her hair dresser offered to do it.. I took him in and he got a very cute cut while sitting in his nanas lap.. he did great.. I think being snuggled up to his nana made it easy..
