My sons stocking holders. For some reason trains just go with Christmas, so they each got one last Christmas!
The stockings hung by the Chimney with care. I think it's so much fun and Thomas has already claimed his stocking, making quite sure that I know it's his and not Brothers.

Well I got a mad rush for blankets..... so I've been busy doing that. This one had to be done right away for a girl at work retiring, so I was up doing that last night. The night before that, another girl at work, needed it ASAP because she was going on vacay. I still have 5 more to go...that will be between now and Wednesday.
I also made a blanket for Stellan, if you follow his progress at all you'll know that he has been SVT free and is no longer "under construction", and his mother has emailed me that he loves the blanket. It turned out great and I couldn't have been happier with it!

Maybe it wouldn't be so scary.
I know I'm guilty of it too....Christopher cried before I even let him go....Thomas was a little more at ease since he was with Emma. I wonder if Christopher cried because he saw Santa was wearing an earring.....hmmmm

And Christmas, is upon us again!
One thing that comes along with Christmas is grandma's birthday, she is a Christmas Carol, or so her father said, and hence, that is what she was named!
Thomas had a ton of fun "painting" cookies for Grandma's birthday party! Christopher was still napping and didn't partake in this particular activity....
We told him the frosting was "paint" so he wouldn't eat the frosting instead of painting the cookies, so it worked out great. Good thing....the kid doesn't eat Paint, the bad thing, he won't eat any cookies with paint on them! Ahh well....he doesn't need any cookies anyway!

So we joined some close friends and traveled all the way to the North Pole to meet Santa!
Thomas being the class clown really cracked up Emma!
And then we couldn't get them to smile to save our lives

My boys go to a small in home day care, they come in contact with the same children daily and those children do not have older siblings or anything and my day care professional is very strict about hand washing and keeping toys clean and such.
Flu season begins, my doc immediately starts pushing the flu virus. Okay that’s good, it’s been around FOREVER and has been tested and there are no problems with it. I got it for Thomas last year and all is well. Christopher was too little for it last year but he ended up in the hospital anyway. Okay fine, we dealt with it and we are careful with Christopher, he’s “fragile”.
Then the Doctor brings up the H1N1 vaccine, and I said NOPE, I have a gut feeling. He explained to me that it could be detrimental to Christopher if he gets it. Okay, Thank you, I understand, but I decline. Well all he had at first was the nasal vaccine anyway, which Christopher couldn’t get.
So then I get a call the other day,
Doctor: “Hey we got more of the H1N1 vaccine shots in and we’d like to schedule the boys”.
Nice…..so now I’ve been agonizing over this for TWO DAYS! And now their appointment is in an hour and I still am not sure I want them to have them!
The hubs said he would support me in whatever I want to do, GREAT, sometimes I hate being the Mom.
What if I make the wrong decision?
To be continued…..

Okay I know, everyone and their mother has already read the whole series and seens the movies and all that kind of stuff....so give me a break I'm a little slow! So I started the Twilight book 2 weekends ago, and I usually only read on the weekends when the boys are napping, and I get through about 10 pages and I want to nap too. Well not with this book....I read it in 2 weekends and absolutely LOVED IT!!! You know they talk in the book about the pull that Bella felt to Edward, and that is the exact pull I felt to the book, it was amazing.
So as soon as I finished it on Sunday I RAN, did not walk, but RAN to the video store, did not pass go, did not collect $200 and got the movie, brought it home and could hardly wait until the boys went to bed that night to watch it....and let me tell you, that. movie. was. HORRIBLE! The book, sooooooo much better. They lost so much of what makes the relationship, what gives them the passion, the development of the characters in the movie was horrible.
So I couldn't wait to start the new book, I started it last night and was up way to late reading New moon, and made it to page 84. Then this afternoon I had off work, instead of running all my errands, cleaning my house and doing such things I came home, laid on my couch and read and read and read. I am now 1/2 way through the book already, and as soon as I am done with this post I am going to read more!!
