Eli and Santa Claus

This year Eli and I went with Cassie, Tiffany and their kids to see Santa at Fashion Place.
It was the only place that allowed cameras. Well, this year, they told us no cameras. Luckily, their camera broke so they let us take photos with our cameras. Seriously, it as a miracle. Thank goodness! I didn't want to miss my opportunity of capturing this photo of Eli with Santa...

He didn't really like him. But, Santa held onto him for a couple photos. Afterwards, Eli waved bye bye. So, Eli likes Santa from a distance. Classic!

Then it was time for Claire, Catelyn and Malissa to see Santa. What a great shot! Thanks Cassie.

Aren't they cute? We finally cute Eli's hair.

Our new Christmas tree

Adrian wanted a taller Christmas tree this year.
And let me tell you, it is much better than our 6 foot tree. It is 7"5 and has pre-lit lights.

Eli has broken a few ornaments but he knows not to touch them now.

Putting up the Christmas lights

We finally did it! We borrowed a ladder and put up Christmas lights.

Adrian started putting them up but he gave up so I stepped in while he held onto the ladder. It was pretty awkward but we did it.

We used a staple gun and lots of faith. It was hard to put the lights up along the top but we managed to do it. Eli even had fun playing with all of the leaves and running away.

Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving 2011

Yes, I'm aware that Thanksgiving has come and gone but here are the photos of our tiny Thanksgiving dinner.

I even made name tags and cornocopia filled with candy corn and nuts.

I found these at Hobby Lobby (80% off).

Eli watching the Macy's day parade. Don't you love his hair?

We bought a tiny chicken to roast.

What have we been up to?

Well, Eli loves getting into everything!

Check out his long hair! H loves getting into my bows.

This is what he did while I was in the shower. Yippee!

Eli likes to stack and re-stack different objects like ALL of our shoes.
