I'm no good at playing catch up so. . . we had a good Thanksgiving, it seems like the days are passing soooooo slowly and I'm getting nothing done, but here we are just ten days away from Christmas and 4 weeks from baby time. So I guess time flies. . . but then again not really.
Anyway, so we put up our Christmas tree at the beginning of the month. It's very beautiful, and Jace always likes all the lights in the house turned off to he can see the pretty lights. Cameron does not like that, so usually they fight about the lights a lot during the day. Just one of their many things to fight about.
Tonight was our church Christmas party. The primary kids put on a little nativity scene. Cam was supposed to be a sheep, but he refused even though I made him a cute paper plate to wear. He did "baaa" from the safety of the audience though.
Jace was thrown into the role of Joseph. He did not really want to wear a costume. He did not really want to be Joseph.
He was a good sport though, even after patting the baby so softy, causing it to fall out of the little manger it was in and onto the floor.
But then the program kept going. . .
and going. . .
. . . and going
Until he was almost completely laying on the floor with a look of total exhaustion and depression. I have begun to realize that neither of my kids function really well after seven o'clock, since they are usually in bed between six thirty and seven. This is great when we're just staying at home, but when we have any kind of evening event to attend, it gets a bit difficult.
And although his finger was skirting ridiculously close to his nostril, I wanna believe that it never actually went it. . .
And then after the program he was just completely done with it all.
I guess he thought drowning out the noise would help.
But then both the audience-lurking sheep and the annoyed-with-everything Joseph perked up when it was time for Santa to arrive.
They both were very excited when he arrived. Cameron was pretty cute about it.
Aww, he's waving. What a sweetie.
He was also not at all afraid of Mr. Claus. And he had his eye on Santa's bag of candy the whole time. In fact, when asked what he wanted for Christmas, all he would say was, "I want candy." So I guess Santa has it easy this year with Cam.
And Jace practiced over and over what he wanted to ask Santa for. A hot wheels mega loop mayhem set.
