It was a vast improvement on last year simply for the fact that I was 8 1/2 months pregnant last Christmas. I remember I was primping in our bathroom before the party and Joey came around the doorway, took one look at me and said, "You look like Santa, Mumma!" Just what I wanted to hear. Here I thought my red blouse simply looked festive. Ah well.
This year when I came downstairs where the boys were eating Joey looked shocked when he saw me and said, "WHAT? Mumma you look beautiful! I love your beautiful blouse! I like your headband!" It was very sweet, and yet a little disconcerting that he was so taken aback to see me look put together. Of course he did finish it off with, "You should wear that everyday!" Typical male. Every woman should wear high heels, full make-up, and a skirt around the house while she cooks and cleans. Little caveman.
I managed to keep myself clean for all of 10 minutes until Tommy put his sticky food fingers on my blouse. He just couldn't keep his little hands off. He kept saying, "Mumma you so bootiful. I lub you." Heh, heh.
Can you see how sweaty I am in this picture? This was the last one taken in a series of 800. The boys are little camera hogs and kept trying to jump in between us. Towards the end there I was kicking them away. Todd's head was ready to blow, and my mom was laughing so hard she could barely keep the camera still. I especially love the toys spilling out of the toy box behind us. Very classy, no?
Anglophile Football Fanatic gave me this awesome award. It is to go to bloggers that, in her words, spread Festivus for the rest of us. I am very excited about this one as it feeds into my snowman obsession.
I would like to pass this award on to Kellen at On the Upside for her festive new design. I love the red and green and it makes me feel cheery every time I visit. I also want to give it to Lotus at SarcasticMom for the picture she has of her son in the Santa hat. It is SO cute and funny you must go check it out.
