So its the start of Christmas and I have been trying to keep up with Ali' Edwards December Daily. I am gonna try to keep track of our days here and then put it all together at the end of the month.

December 1:

Wednesday - one of my work at home days. We waited for our new Christmas Tree to arrive, but it never did. It was a low-key day. I did manage some pictures of Noah by the tree and we got our first snow that day.

December 2 :

Our tree arrived. We put it together after Noah went to bed and even had to break out the big ladder to get the top on. It turned out gorgeous - but wow - is it tall!

December 3:

I had two Christmas Parties. We had our work Christmas lunch at Andiamos. nice to get out of work for a few hours and have a blast chatting! I relieved mom for a few hours, Noah and I cleaned and then mom came back and I met Jim for his Holiday Party at the Marriott in Livonia. nice to see people I used to work with and catch up with them.

December 4:

Made it to Walmart to try a picture with Santa and one tired little boy was having NONE of it. We did get one picture and it may be the best we get this year. Picked up some Christmas gift and later in the day hit up Target to finish decorating at home. Came home and started putting up ornaments on all of our trees.

December 5:

Had a 31 Party. Bunch of people. lots of food - makes for a good recipe for fun. Was nice to have everyone over and kick off the Holiday Parties here.

I'll post pictures later of Noah and Santa and our tree!

Noah has been jumping more and more - in fact he now understands how to just randomly jump in the air - makes for fun times!
The landscape is complete, not without drama from The Soil Erosion Committee....but complete...and specks of grass are sprouting all over the place.
Above are a few pics of the front of the house, Noah's swingset and the back. He did an awesome job!
Jim, his dad, my nephew, jim's sisters boyfriend, his sister, and my brother have started the basement - long way to go - but definately nice to see progress.

Vegas & Landscape

We went to Vegas last week and had a blast. Noah stayed with the in-laws and we took a much needed break. So nice...a bit hot...but hey - it's dry heat! We stayed at Paris, our first time staying there and I have to say that I don't recommend it - the room was small, our view was a brick wall and well everything seemed a bit old - plus, they were refinishing the gaming floor while we were there so everything was under constant construction. We also got delayed coming back and ended up in Cleveland for an hour due to heavy storms in Detroit.
Our landscaping is coming along. The patio is basically done. They still have all the lighting to do and the front pebbles and more trees plus all the seed work. Still a ways to go - but it looks awesome.

Been Awhile

We've been busy - and its been crazy - oh and we've been up north - and our landscaping has started - and we spent 200 bucks on the cat - and I had my company picnic - and we've been planning for Vegas - and we've played in our splash blow up thing - and watched the fireworks from across the man made lake here -and we've played in the lake - and we have taken Noah to see Toy Story 3 not once - but TWICE! We are headed up north for the fourth of July - nothing like a little Higgins Lake to make you a little happier in life!

Memorial Day Weekend

We headed up to the cabin this weekend for some much needed relaxation, sleep and movie watching. The weather was awesome. Decided Sunday that Noah needed a small pool up there so Sunday morning we went to Kmart to buy him one of the small plastic ones. Filled it when we got home- and then decided while it warmed up we should go to the lake. packed a few things and headed on down. Noah loved the water, he took a long stoll out to the middle of the swim area and back with Daddy and had fun playing in the sand with grandma. Although, he wasn't too fond of the sand in between his toes- but I can't blame him - I'm not either. We came back from the lake, he played in his pool for awhile and then crashed for an hour nap (it probably would have been longer but we had a gust of wind blow a bunch of doors shut that thats what woke him up! Didn't do much else that evening - it was muggy that night so it made for harder sleeping conditions. Yesterday on our way home we stopped at the outlet stores and then came home for laundry time- fun stuff I tell you! Hope you had a great memorial day weekend!
