Christmas is coming!!!

So, we had a successful Black Friday to Cyber Monday weekend!  We got most of our family shopping finished, and are really knocking out the gift list this week as well!  This will leave us more time to shop for Jake and each other, and to plan and attend parties!

We have several things going in December, so I'm glad we had an Extra Week of Christmas Time this year!  Really gets me in a festive mood!  So to start things off, we decorated the Christmas Tree!

Jake did so AWESOME with the tree!
I got some non-breakable ornaments set out for him, and HE LOVED putting them on the Christmas Tree!  It was a complete DREAM come TRUE!  Watchin his eyes light up with each ornament i handed him!  He is DEFINATELY MY BOY!


The finished Tree - YES!  Started on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and finished on Sunday!
Saturday, we went to the Galleria, i'll have to add the pics I took of the tree later, but here is a "good" one of the three of us.  :)
Once we got our tree finished, we celebrated AGAIN with open mouths AAAAAAAAAAH! 
That's our boy!
I'm also working on decorating my finger nails, of course, what do ya think?

AND, since my work Holiday Lunch party this year is western theme, I made myself a hat to wear!

Happy Diwali 2012

A nice friend and co-worker of mine recently (this summer) moved back to India.  She knows my son's birth father is from India, so she asked if I needed anything.  I said YES!  I need a Kurta Suit for him so I can take some nice pictures of Jake for Diwali!

Diwail is the Festival of Lights and is a very festive time of celebration in India and other coutries around the world.  And, it is TODAY, so Happy Diwali from Jake!

This was after I took the above pictures, and he had some milk in a sippy, and I wanted to get more pictures, so Mean Mommy took that milk away.  BTW, don't do that to a toddler, he no likey!  Especially if you want to take more pictures!!!

Jake and the Neverland Pirates....And Jake!

I love Disney.  I also Love Star Wars, as we all know, so the recent purchace Disney made (click here) not only makes me happy, but made my whole world complete!  Can't wait to see the new movies and (I can only hope) a Theme park??

Anyway, last year, Yoda ruled Halloween and his birthday.  This year, Jake is all about JAKE! 
Jake and the Neverland Pirates - and Jake! 
He looks so cute in his costume made completely by ME! 
Yes, I made that vest!  I so totally ROCK!
Anyway, here are my pumpkins!
R2D2 - I heard a bunch of teens trying to decide if it was Star Wars or Wall-E.  I think they walked away knowing it was a Droid from Star Wars but they didn't know which one. 
Who are these people??

Captain Hook!!!  LOVED this one!  It was difficult, but it turned out nice! :)
And, check out Jake's Booty!  Not a bad haul for only about an hour and 2 streets worth of Trick or Treating.  He loved it by the way, and even enjoyed handing out candy when we got back home for the older Kids coming by later!  It was a fun holiday!
So much so, he wasn't quite ready to hang up the red bandana!  That's my Jake!
