he’s number 9

Since I absolutely adore Christmas and all the fun activities and events that go along with this special holiday, I thought to myself “why not?”  Why not decorate our door into a snowman?  Why not start a new tradition with our little Elf?  Why not spend $384 every year on new Christmas lights?  Why not get a real tree that fills our home with a wonderful pine smell?  Why not get Kellan an advent chocolate calendar?  Our home is a Christmas fairy land.  I love it!  So, why not?  Why not decorate gingerbread men?  Oh yes, we did.  Love.

One more little thing to add- after Kellan had finished decorating his gingerbread man he looked up at Noel & myself and said, “this my gingerbread man, he’s number 9”… oh yes lil boy.  He wants his gingerbread man to be number 9 because his Uncle Conlan represents that number on the ice.  He just loves his Uncle’s.  He melts my heart every day.  The love he has for his family is truly just the sweetest thing.  & what my favorite holiday is all about.  He gets me.  I dig.

About a month ago we celebrated Noah’s first birthday.  Yesterday we watched him take his first steps.  We are so proud of our little guy.  Love is all we got for you lil boy!

This past weekend we got an invite from my parents to attend the Wenatchee Wild hockey game.  Of course we gladly accepted.  It was my first time in one of the infamous “suites” that our local arena offers to watch the game.  My boys had a blast!  It was an experience I will never forget, and I know my boys won’t quite remember it, but they will see these photographs from the night and will be happy they were part of it too.  My family makes me smile, laugh, enjoy living in the “moment”, and the memories just keep on a’rollin.  Mommy likey.

{There is a game called Chuck-A-Puck where you throw rubber pucks out on the ice during 2nd-3rd period intermission, and try to get your puck on the “bullseye” right in the center of the ice… Conlan won with this throw!}
