It's Christmas Time!!!

We have been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!  Shopping, wrapping, unwrapping, wrapping some more, then putting decorations up, birthday parties (there have been 2 in a week!!), and work.  Oh yeah, I do work, but if I could, I would so totally take December off and return after the new year!  But, I must work, so there.

Here's Jake on P.J. / Polar Express Day before going to day care.  He's READY!
And, in our new tradition, a picture with Yoda on his Birthday
 Jake with Yoda at 1 month, then last year 12 months
Jake's Birthday (12/15) was AWESOME and a Pinterest SUCCESS!  I made his cake.  Yes, I did this!  I'm completely proud.  I did get the idea from a pin, but still, I did the construction, decorations, and the print outs!  I'm giving myself props, this is awesome!

Jake and the Neverland Pirate Ship

Yes, you can say it, it's great!

I also did these little pirate boats for snacks, but with Bucky's Sail Design.  It was a "Bucky Armada" and everybody loved them!  So easy!!  And, a healthy snack to boot!
Pirate Boat Jell-O

We also had Fish N Chips, which were ruffles and gold fish mixed in a bowl.  Cleaver, yes, Pinterest is AWESOME!

Jake LOVED his party!  Greeted everybody with a smile and a hug, LOVED it when they sang Happy Birthday, and he even blew out his candle!  He is one awesome dude!

AND, enjoyed opening his gifts!  Here he is all finished!!!

Then, on Tuesday (12/18) we went over to Nonnie's to celebrate her birthday as well!
She was trying to get a picture of Jake next to the tree, but he while sucking on a dumdum, wanted to take the pictures too!  Such a cool lil dude!

Jake at his Two year check up!  He's all happy BEFORE the doctor comes in!  :)
One more thing...
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Company Holiday Party

Every year my company has a Holiday Luncheon early in December.  It's a simple lunch with some music entertainment, then announcing the winners of the centerpiece decorating, and then giving out door prizes.  And, to shake things up a bit, each year they come up with a new theme!  This year's theme was "Down Home Holiday Lunch" and we could dress Christmas Western for the day! YEY! 

Also, the center pieces were also to be western theme. Here's the one I did, and of COURSE it won Most Holiday Spirit!
But the best part of the day?  I got to wear my AWESOME SANTA COWBOY HAT!
I took 2 Santa hats (cheap ones from Walmart) and cut the trim off both and glued one of the red parts on the crown of the hat, then took the trim from both hats and glued it on the brim of the hat.  I took a pretty ribbon and awesome plastic white poinsettia and made the decoration for the hat, and tadaah!  Santa Cowboy Hat!
I make this look GOOD!
Our entertainment!  Great Holiday band!  Most of them are co-workers.
