Jacob kept telling me to take his picture today. This series is him posing. There were many, MANY outcasts .... :)
I have baked many cookies - oatmeal raisin, oatmeal chocolate chip, strawberry with white chocolate chips, forgotten cookies, and finally sugar cookies! I think my husband likes decorating sugar cookies almost as much as Jacob does. It was a blast, I love family time like this. I made sugar cut-outs, but Jacob insisted on animals. So we have an assortment of cookies. :)
Emily's wheelchair is decorated for Christmas, it is so cute! Everyone we see comments on it, and she just smiles and smiles when someone talks to her about it. It's cute! Of course, she wouldn't smile for me in the picture, as she was watching Barney at the time. Mommy has nothing on Barney! The one smile I managed to capture was only because Barney was doing something silly. I guess I know where I rank ... hehe.
We have also been busy loving on our newest family member! My sister's little girl is a week old now and SO cute. Jacob is madly in love with her, and is convinced we need another baby in our house. I am glad to snuggle, love, feed, and hand her back. :) I love me some baby, but I am glad to be past the newborn stage for sure!
Today we did some rearranging of furniture and trading rooms and such. Jacob's turtle now lives in the living room, so that all his toys can be in his room. I am tired of seeing them scattered all over the living room. Isn't the turtle cute! And yes, that hideous wall behind his tank is rock. I know, it's fugly.
So, our house is decorated .. the tree is up .. the cookies are baked. Bring on Christmas! :) Tomorrow night are are going on a holiday boat cruise with Make-A-Wish. It should be fun! It's supposed to be fun, food and entertainment. Yay!
