The chosen elf of the month is Jamos, who is going to assist in creating the Christmas lists for all the good girls and boys.

And if the gift costs less than $50.00, please attach the cash difference to the gift.

It'll be mad money for the recipient and make sure everyone is gifted equally.

Merry Christmas!

He is Love

This post is to celebrate my precious baby boy Jamison. He is so lovely to me. It's amazing how two people can come together with God's help and create a life. A life that is totally different in personality and mannerism to the other life that God allowed you to create just 3 1/2 years earlier. Each life is just as important, but so very different and unique. Precious Jamos. My life wouldn't be the same without you.

I could get lost forever in those eyes...

My New Signature

So here is my new signature. A great idea that I found from one of my favorite website writers C Jane. I'll be adding this and other tags to all of my posts. It's in my favorite color too!

It's Zoo Time

We had a fabulous time at the zoo the other week. Dear hubby and I already had the day off and decided we'd keep the boys home from daycare and set out on a family adventure to the zoo. The crowds were small and the temperature was perfect.

Everyone say CHEESE!

There was a lovely Mama and baby elephant. They were easy to fall in love with.

Jamison became fast friends with this little guy.

Even through this thick pane of glass this tiger kept a keen eye on Jamos and Jamos kept a weary eye on him. Jamos even jumped back a few times when he walked by. It's amazing how he already gets the predator and prey roles...That tiger looked hungry.

After the run in with the real deal he wanted nothing to do with this tiger...metal or not. He was outta there!

The fearless Camden conquered the tiger with his sinister smile.

After a long and exhausting day at the zoo we headed through the parking lot toward the car. Jamos having had as much as he could take and finally succumbed to the the call of Mr. Sandman, but not before he gave us some very funny footage of a kid trying to win the battle over gravity...gravity won.

Enjoy funny video below.

I hope that it doesn't make me a bad mommy that I watched this over and over again and laughed harder and harder. It broke my heart a little too....a little. My poor sleepy head.

It was a fun day.

Two by Two

Camden came home the other day with an assignment he had worked on in school. The directions on the top of the Noah's Ark themed assignment were...

Draw a matching animal so that you will have two.

Here is his precious artwork, which had my eyes streaming with tears of laughter and pride.

Tigers and tigers and tigers...oh my!

The Turtle and the turtle

Curious George and his brother George W....:-)

We found Nemo! His time lost at sea has taken quite a toll.

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails!

That's SOME pig!

All kidding aside, I couldn't be more proud!
I give this assignment an A+ for talent and good humor. These are truly precious times.
