Hangin at the crib this New Years

The thought of staying home on New Years eve before I had my son was not really something I wanted to do. We used to love to go to the expensive events, drinks included in the price, all you can eat. But this year we are gonna have some people over and get drunk in the comfort of our own home. I'm sure there will be some shots thrown down, like tequila or something we'll regret the next day. But the thought of being safe at home is nice. I'll be sure to take pictures, of course. Greyson was supposed to go to Grammy's house, but Aunt Tam won't let him. She wants him to be here with us. Hmmmm, babysitter or not? OK, fine, Tami wins. Guess who's gonna be keeping an eye on him then? I could've had a sitter, oh well. I can't believe it's almost 2009. So much has happened this year. I bought another new car,which already has 23,000 miles on it, got pregnant but lost it, my beautiful baby boy turned 2 yrs old, my dog turned 14, yes I said 14, Cher's dog passed away after 13 yrs of being her baby, Mom got a great paying job that she loves, and finally, Greyson learned the words, bullshit, ass and asshole. I was only joking when I called Daddy an asshole, I swear.
All of that aside, I am glad and sad that the year is over. It's great to have a fresh start, but then on the other hand my baby is gonna be 3 already. It is going too fast. I love every day I have with him. He makes me a better person. I am excited to see the way he will change this year. I'm sure it will be eventful, but hopefully in a good way!

I hope you have a safe New Years eve and an amazing 2009.

Maybe our best Christmas ever.....

I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Ours was for sure. Greyson really got into opening the presents this year. It made it so much more fun! He got tons of stuff from everyone and Santa!!Every time he takes a nap now, he wakes up and says, "OK, Mommy, let's go open presents!" My living room is a disaster. It's slowly shaping back up. I just don't know where to go with all this!
We went to Tami and Chris' house on Christmas eve. There was so much food, little smokies, meatballs, artichoke dip, taco dip, cookies, brownies, rice crispy treats, oysters..yuck, and more. Here is Daddy and Greyson. Below them is a picture of Ryan, my nephew and Sarah, his longtime girlfriend. The third picture is Kylie and Greyson.

Every year the kids gather around Uncle Gary while he reads "Twas the Night Before Christmas." This year I had the idea of Gramma doing it since she's getting older and in a nursing home. It was really special. I think we all had a tear in our eyes.

After that, Greyson started getting really impatient and was READY to open presents! We must have been making him wait way too long. As you can tell he was getting restless laying on the presents and falling off of them...

I only got a couple of pictures of the presents he got at Aunt Tam's house. He got a school bus, a Superman scooter, tons of Thomas the Train tracks and cars, a Mickey Mouse blanket, a Tee Ball set with gloves and lots more.

Then it was time to go home so Santa could come. Watching Greyson's face that morning was priceless. He opened every single present really slow. He' tear little bitty pieces off. You can imagine how long it took to open them all. It was so worth it!!! Santa brought him his first pair of snow boots, that he can barely walk in, bathtub toys, Mr. Potato Head and family, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse CD for the car and much more.

Yesterday, we put his Thomas the Train track together. Daddy and Greyson played trains. I loved watching them.

One last present was Greyson's Hispanic Ashton Drake doll. Yes I said doll. First of all he has a Diego doll and tries to change his diaper and it swallows poor Diego up. Mom bought me this doll and I opened it up yesterday and I decided to give it to Greyson. So mom found some baby clothes she bought for Greyson that he never wore when he was a teeny baby. He was smiling from ear to ear. He won't put this baby down. I was afraid to give my son a baby doll, but seeing how happy it makes him, I don't care. He is in love....aww.

So this is Christmas

Only one more day for my families Christmas celebration at my sisters! I am getting really excited about it. I am super excited to see Greyson's reaction when he opens all of these presents everyone got him. Of course the ones Santa is bringing him as well. Last night when I got home from doing a little more shopping, even though I said I was done with him, I let him open just one from us. It was a Little Tikes movie and it came with a bonus Cozy Coup car for him to play with. You remember Greyson's car. Well, he calls it his "Wee" Every time he sees one on T.V, in someones yard, he always says, "Look Mommy, my Wee!" When he opened it up he was so excited and screaming! It was hilarious! I wish I would have capture it on camera! The movie is adorable and the car is a blast!!

Nothing to post about

really....I have been trying to think about stuff to post about the past couple of days and have come up with nothing. Christmas is in a couple of weeks. I have bought a total of 3 Christmas presents. I have to still buy all of Greyson's stuff, something for my Mom, Tavia, the DR's I work for, my boss, and I think that's it. I love Christmas but it's hard to find the right present sometimes. Then I feel forced to just pick something out. It's about 25 degrees outside right now and I can't stand it. Brrrrrrr. Next Wednesday my work is having our Christmas dinner at Brios. I love our Christmas dinners every year. We have so much fun every time. We went to Maggiano's two of the years I have been there and OMG, their food is amazing! Soon it will be 2009 and we have no plans for that so far. We usually don't until the last minute really. What will you be doing on New Years?

Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving!!

Time to start Christmas shopping if you haven't already. Usually I do that black Friday shopping, but am proud to be staying home this year. I got to use the "no babysitter" card. So, as those nuts are out at 4 and 5 in the morning I will be snuggling up with my pillows and blanky. I hope it's not to cold and you get lots of great deals! Have fun!

Me singing You've Got a Way

OK, so I did really bad filming this one. I cut my head off half the time!

As you know I like to sing....

I have decided to record myself singing some songs. You will really get a kick out of my filming skills. I am using my digital camera and just have it sitting on my desk. I promise they will get better. It's hard to get the lighting just right, haha. If there is a song you would like me to try ever..let me know. If I know it, I will try it. If not maybe I will learn it for you. If I like you that much...just kidding. Please leave me feedback. Be gentle though. I am not a professional so don't bash me too much! Hope you enjoy!

It's been a while since I celebrated

I stumbled upon some very interesting shoes just now. I wonder if you can help me to decide which pair to buy?

Buh buh brrrrrrrrrr.....

I know it's time for it to get cooler, but it always shocks me when it does. A couple days ago it was 75 degrees and today it's in the 30's. I had to get our coats out. I realize it's November and it's supposed to be cold like this, but I think we got pretty lucky this year and it stayed nicer longer. So on cold days what do you do? Sit in the house with comfy clothes on and take pictures. I took some pictures of Greyson after he fell asleep. I love looking at him so peaceful. I know he's not into anything. Notice he still has the baby fat roll on his thighs. I will be sad when he grows out of that. I still love his feet just as much as I did when he was a little baby.

See anything wrong with these pictures?

Did you figure it out?
If not I am talking about Greyson's binky. At his two year check up I asked his pediatrician if she had any ideas for us successfully getting it away from him. She recommended two things, taking it away cold turkey and also cutting the tip off slowly. I tried the second one about a month ago. He threw his binky on the floor when he was mad at me and it went behind him in his highchair. So, I took it and cut a little off the top and gave it to him. I told him he broke it when he threw it and that went over like a fart in church. He told me no, and that he wanted "other one". So, we are back to square one. If you have any suggestions for us to try, please let us know. People are starting to stare at him. I fear I will be in the store with him at the age of 14 with this thing still hanging out of his mouth! Now that's a scary thought.

How far can you get on this?

Someone in my CafeMom group just posted this game link. I can't stop playing it. I have to warn you though, it's hard. Click here to play.

When will he stop asking for suckers?

I wish I could throw the rest of the candy away. Greyson is constantly asking for a sucker. If I say no, he throws a fit until he gets it. I am trying not to give in. I at least make him say please. But, I can't wait until it's all gone. To make sure he didn't ask for it, I threw all the chocolate away...yeah right I ate it. With young kids, how do you keep this crap away from them? Or keep it at a minimum. He doesn't understand too much sweets.


I stayed up way too late last night changing my blog background trying to make is just the way I like it. It was fine then but when the alarm went off this morning, I was killing myself. I have to get up and go to work....I guess I should just be thankful I have a good job. Have a great week!

Halloween is over with, now pig out day is coming...

We had a very good time trick or treating. I was really worried Grey wouldn't do too well because he is terrified of all things monster/scary. He surprised us and did very well with it. My cousin's little boy, Diego was the Scream character. At first Grey did just that..screamed at him, haha. But, as the night went on, he did great. He walked proudly up to those doors and said "Trick or Treat". My sister and niece came over all dressed up. Tami, my sister, is such a cool mom! She dresses up every year. This year she was one of the girls from Little House On the Prairie. It was awesome. I made buffalo chicken dip, chili, lil smokies and also some hot dogs for chili dogs. I had to take a picture of them in the pan. I looked down and noticed it looked like a hand in there. Pretty freaky on Halloween night, we all got a kick out of that. It was a little better but I couldn't find my camera. That's my life. Daddy stayed home and handed out candy while we loaded our bags with it. All in all it was so much fun!!!
