I have been SO lucky to have Jeff out of school and will continue to love it for 16 more days!!!!! It was pretty wild and crazy the last week Jeff was in school...I was busy with Christmas orders and he was SO busy with finals. It was a really stressful week. I always get sad when Christmas is over because I just love this time of year. Anyway, here are pictures from the past couple weeks!!

Lots and lots of orders!!!

Dad and little dude reading

It was super quiet and I got a little worried and went looking for him and found him here....don't quite know what to think of this!

Since Jeff's been out of school we've been doing a lot of cuddling and movie watching!

We hosted Christmas Eve dinner and we were cooking all day and I came into the living room and found Jeff knocked out...with the remote next to him :)

Eating Christmas Eve dinner!

Boston with his Uncle Joe and Bieber :)

Siblings--we missed Melissa and Blair!!!

Jeff and Boston rockin' their new hoodies!

Christmas Day--heading out to Deer Park with the family

For the life of us we couldn't get Boston down for a nap...he's been kind of sick we left and sure enough he was out cold ten minutes into the trip!!

How cute right??? Loved playing the piano and looked so cute doing it!!

Anyway, we have had such a fun time spending so much time together. We talk about how much fun it has been! I'll be so sad when Jeff can't stay up 'til 1am watching 24 or Prison Break! That has been a highlight of this break for me! It's also such a special time because our Anniversary is tomorrow!!! Two years has gone by so fast!!!

It's about time...

I just feel that I haven't been that great about blogging lately! It's been nuts around here that blogging has been the last thing I've wanted to do!! Needless to say--I need to keep up my blog book! Our house finally is decorated with Christmas! I have tons of blocks laying around...and our tree is up! We did that whole thing yesterday AND I'm happy to say that Boston hasn't touched it once! He doesn't show the slightest interested either--let's see how long that lasts! 

Surprise, surprise! Jeff fixing the tree and watching bball??!??! 

I thought it would be cute to just do a couple colors on the tree. So we have red and silver {some are sparkly too!}

There are lights around here too so at night it's so pretty to have these lights on and the Christmas tree! That's my favorite! Anyway! We are enjoying ourselves here--Jeff is finishing up his FIRST semester in his Master's program. He is so busy! We probably had 20 minutes worth of talking last week. I've been keeping busy with Etsy and Boston and life!

No more mullet!!

Boston is just so funny--the other day he made me laugh so hard. I love that he can do that! Such a special little guy! Anyway!! He got his first hair cut! He had like a major mullet. I used to give him a Mohawk on top, but it was too dang long!! It seriously was like two inches tall!! Then on top of that, he had SUPER long hair in the back aka mullet. We were wanting to wait for Lacie to come up for Christmas to do it, but it was too white trash! 
It kind of curled too! I tried to get a nice shot, so don't mind my creepiness! (sp?)
It also came to a point in the front too! This hair cut was much needed!
After! Nice side shot of the no-longer mullet!

You can't see it all that well, but it's MUCH shorter on top. He looks like a little boy more baby :( 

I also just wanted to show what I was talking about in the last post about how cute Boston is when you're holding him and he turns his head and looks at you and smiles....
He does this all the time! It's Jeff's favorite thing he does...

Our BIG one year old!!

I've had so many emotions this last little while--being Boston's first birthday and all. I just can't believe my baby is already one. His birthday was last Saturday--it's just been a crazy week that I haven't gotten around to blogging! Here are some pictures on November 20, 2009!
Seconds old...

Holding him for the first time

It's so crazy how little they really are huh? AND this was one year later--November 20th, 2010!!!

My mom completely spoils him with toys...his blow up fire truck.

This could be my favorite picture of all time. He didn't sleep really well the previous night so Jeff got up with him at 5am because he wanted to play. At 7am I woke up to this...both crashed on the couch. LOVE this.

We got him this...he walks all over the house with it.

'What the heck guys??'

 Our friends gave him this, footballs, bath toys...etc!! My dad got him a way cool four-wheeler car and he loves that too! My mom got him sensory balls, this ball thing where it shoots the balls everywhere and cars. He LOVES cars. He was spoiled on his birthday!

His cake--which by the way he didn't even touch! I kinda had to smash his hand in it to make it look like he tore into it...but he didn't.

See?? Not the slightest interest in the cake. So I ate it over the next four days...:)
Our friends and family! I am so grateful for Boston...he brings so much joy in our lives it's crazy!! At one year Boston weighs 22.5 lbs and is 31 inches tall. 50th percentile for weight and 90th for height (go figure :) Some funny things Boston does--when he wakes up he jumps in his crib and that's what wakes us up, when I do my make up he steals the brushes and crawls around with them almost all day, he loves flowers, loves cars and pushes them around using one finger, loves when the dishwasher is open, says dada (not sure if he knows what he is saying, but when we work with him, it sure sounds like he is trying to say it), takes off in church for the doors, and plays with the stoppers (which are LOUD), has 10 teeth (two molars), loves playing the kids, loves when you chase him, when you make an ugly face at him--he'll try to do it back by scrunching his nose and showing his teeth (it's soo funny), loves being thrown in the air, has taken 3 steps, is SOO fast at crawling, pushes everything around (chairs, highchairs), isn't that great at eating :/, hates when Jeff leaves, BUT crawls to him the second he walks in the door, when you're holding him--he tilts his head and looks right at your face, pushes his nose into your nose, won't take a sippy cup, loves milk and he is still terrified of the vacuum. We love our little guy.
