Christmas Day!

Today was Christmas! Santa definitely thought we were both good boys and brought us lots of awesome gifts! I was so excited that the first words out of my mouth when walking into the great room were, "Good Gracious!" and "Holy Moly"! Santa brought me the bike I wanted! And guess what? Daddy got a bike too! Pretty neat, huh? We all had a great day and are very thankful for our family, our many blessings, and most importantly, the birth of Jesus Christ!

So, it's best to describe the events via pictures:

All through the house, not a creature was stirring...

It's Christmas Eve! It is already Christmas time. There are a lot of presents under the tree, and family has arrived (Grandmother Cooke came to spend a few days with us). The house is full of anticipation waiting for the arrival of Santa Claus! As a family tradition, one, ok two, ok a few presents are opened of Xmas eve! I received a kids sized leaf blower that sounds and behaves like Daddy's! I am one excited boy, with goggles on and everything. We prepared for bed by placing cookies and milk on the fireplace for Santa to snack on when he comes in the night. I have asked nicely for a bike for Christmas...can't wait to see if it arrives!
Now off to bed for a good night's rest...

Cherub Choir

I again got to sing in front of the church this month! I had a lot of fun practicing for this and I even got a bell to ring while we were singing. I was able to relax a little more for this performance and rang the bell a little bit, but all of those people still make me afraid to open my mouth and sing!

Birthday Parties!

I have really been lucky! A lot of my preschool friends have been inviting me to their birthday parties this month! Seems like November/December is a popular birthday time for my friends! Here is a picture of me at Lainey's house for her birthday party! She had a princess and knight themed party. I got to dress up like a knight with a special hat and even a cool sword! Thanks for having my Lainey, I had a great time!
