Here comes Santa Claus

HO HO HO!!!!!
Merry CHRISTmas!!!!
Friday night Santa Claus arrived at the NWA mall.
What better way to kick off the holiday season by 
watching Santa arrive in his sleigh? 
We had some good friends of ours, Rowan and Grayre
come over to hang out friday night so we loaded all
the boys up and headed to the mall. 
Before Santa arrived we were entertained 
by a Dance company. They preformed the nutcracker
along with several other performances. The boys
were entertained initially but soon started asking
"where is Santa Claus"? They came for one reason
and one reason only, to see the big man for themselves!

Here is little Grayre bear watching the 
dancers. He had so much fun and was
such a good boy.  
     Trev was so excited to hang out with his
friends. He had a great time but was very
anxious to see Santa. While the dancers were
preforming he yells "where is Santa Claus,
when is he coming"? After a nice little chat
about being respectful while someone is
preforming, he seemed to settle down a bit.
He really is such a funny boy!!

 I told the boys to scoot together so I could
snap a pic. Rowan leaned in on Trev and knocked
him over so T was saying "ouch" in this pic. I think
its funny!!! I love how Grayre is looking at them 
like ????
 After the performances, a man read us
Twas the night before Christmas
 The kids loved this part. They were so still
during the story!!! First time for everything.
 Even baby Cruz enjoyed it.....
 but it made him very sleepy!!!!

 The boys kept watching for Santa on the roof
of the mall. It was adorable!!! 
 Trev was pretty sure he spotted him.
"Look, look guys. There he is"! he kept
 And here is Mr. Claus himself. All the boys
were so excited. Trev kept screaming in 
typical Trevor fashion and Grayre kept saying
"there is Santa" and Rowan just stood in amazement.

 As Santa came by the boys on his sleigh,
he waved to them all. Of course the were
all waving right back!!! They've gotta make
sure to get on that nice list.
That was definitely their favorite part. Seeing
how excited they were to get a wave from
Santa was precious. It totally made my night!!!
 We then came back to the house to play.
 The super hero squad!!!
 Trev was giving Grayre a little hug.
 Rowan and Trevor.
Rowan is so awesome!! He would
do the best poses for his pictures.
I turned on some super hero music
and he can play an air guitar like no body's
business. He was so fun!!!!

 Baby Cruz had fun trying to keep up with the
big boys. He ran around behind them trying to
do everything they were doing. He crashed hard
that night.
 One of Rowans infamous poses.

We had such a good time with the Graham boys
over. They all played very well together and had
a blast. Can't wait to have them over again.

Our week

On Sunday after church, Trev and I baked cookies together!!  
 My post got all messed up somehow so hang
in there with me!! Saturday we went to a friend
of ours little boys first birthday party. Cruz got his
first pinata experience and loved it. He just laughed
every time he swung the bat. They were all so cute!
Trev busted the pinata so he got to take the bat he 
 busted the pinata with home. Very Cool!!
 Saturday we had friends over to watch the HOGS
play!! The boys played and had a great time as 
you can see in the pic. lol
 They really were having a good time in 
this picture!!! They are so cute!!!!
 Cruz is Mr. Independent!! He has to feed 
himself or he won't eat!! He is a little stinker.
Here he had his macaroni EVERYWHERE!!!
But he's still adorable as a macaroni monster!!!

 Cruz also learned to brush his teeth this week.
Mommy does a quick brush first, then puts more 
toothpaste on the brush and lets him brush away!
He really did a great job and was so proud of 
himself!!  I can't believe how big he is getting!! It's 
happening so fast.
 Good job baby!!!!
 Sweet baby boy
 Trevor fixed his hair all by himself this week
too. I was leaving to go to mimi's and started
looking for Trev. He said "I'm in here mommy
fixing my hair". I thought oh lord,what has he 
done? When I got to the bathroom he had daddy's
paste out with a lot in his hair, on his forehead and
all over his hands just smiling so big!! He was proud
of himself for being such a big boy and fixing it all
by himself. It was a really cute moment for me!!!
 This is how we went to mimi's that day. 
Great job dude!!
 This was earlier that morning. He pretty
much fixed his own sandwich that day!!
He only had minor help from mom!!! He
has really enjoyed doing things on his own
lately. He normally just likes for mommy to
do most things for him so it's something we've
been working on and he his doing a great job!!

 My sweet busy Cruz!!! He just goes and goes
and then crashes!!! I was finishing up my hair
one morning and stuck him in the exersaucer to
prevent another morning Cruz disaster. I looked 
back to check on him and he was passed out!!!
The boy's gotta crash sometime!!

 These pics should be at the top but....
there from Sunday cookies. Trev thought
they were good!!
 REAL GOOD!!  He kept sneaking cookies when
I wasn't looking. Silly boy, he is such a sugar
There's nothing like a Sunday afternoon nap.
 This is the birthday boy Karter, and the
rest of the birthday pics!!!
