SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN...
Oh I felt so bad today. Our town had a reindeer parade today and Santa Claus came to town. No they weren't real reindeer. people dress up their dogs as reindeer I think! I've never been to it before but I'm pretty sure that's what it was. Anyways, I had told Jace that I would take him and even looked earlier to see what time the parade started. Well we slept in today and by the time I got ready and went to the bank etc... it was to late. I felt terrible :( but Santa was at his house until 2:00 so my mom and I took the boys to see him there and they were giving horse and carriage rides so we all went on that! Jace LOVED it. My mom, Grady and I sat in the back and Jace sat in the front so he thought he was king of the buggy ha ha! The money spent on it went towards Big Brothers Big Sisters and they took our picture and are supposed to have them posted on that site sometime in December and you can download them then. I should have had someone take our picture with my camera and I didn't, oh well!
Before we went I tried so hard to get pictures of the boys for a Christmas card only because right now on Seehere.com you can get 50 4x8 photo Christmas cards (or any cards for that matter) for just the price of shipping!!! So it only costs you $3.19, it was free, but so many people ordered them and they started charging for shipping, but that is still such an awesome deal. You only have until November 30th to get your order in. Once you make your cards and add them to your bag use promo code freebies4mom-1109 and it will take the $24.50 off and only charge you $3.19 for shipping! My mom ordered some and got them 2 days after she placed the order, we were so shocked they came so fast!
So there are some of the pictures I tried to take of them at home and at the courthouse by Santa's house. If one looks the other one doesn't. If one smiles the other one has their eyes closed etc... I mean really, why can't my kids just cooperate for 1 good picture?
Why are my kids so wild and so out of control at times? Jace is so bossy and just thinks he knows EVERYTHING, I think he is a 16 year old trapped in a 4 year old's body sometimes! Grady on the other hand has such an attitude these days, omg if he doesn't get his way he'll just throw himself on the ground! This is probably the best out of all of them, I think I'll order the cards with it...
Santa gave the boys M&M's and candy canes and I tried to take them away so they wouldn't be in the pictures, ha! What was I thinking, just look at Grady's face....that was clearly a bad idea! Why didn't I take some before going to his house? Hello, what was I thinking!
I also had my mom take a few of me with the boys. They were a little better, but they still didn't want to cooperate..gotta love'em anyways!
