Here We GOOO!

Dex getting after the first present he was allowed to open this year!  From my very sweet friend Karissa. She sent Dex a book about a Train in Alaska.  Good call!  We seriously had to read it 5 times before he went to bed that night.  I pointed out all the Alaskan animals, and I'm not sure that he'd heard of any of them... for example - I showed him the hare, he told me no, that's a bunny.  I said, well... that's also a hare.  NO, a BUNNY.  Um, okay.

Why do parents teach their children to say "CHEESE" when this face is always what happens (instead of a smile)

We also got this really cool fishing boat ornament!  Here is Dex trying to show the camera.

His book and ornament  :)

Daddy trying to help.  BIIIIIGGG help, Daddy.  :)

Only two more days until we start the heavy duty Christmas festivities!  First with my family on Friday.  And then it's back home for Christmas morning in Grapevine, and Christmas Day with the O'Neals!  I am very excited this year, and I think it's because I actually feel ready.  Last year I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off and it wasn't fun.  Note to self:  SLOW DOWN during the holidays and enjoy it!!  So happy :)
