By the way - Jackson is utterly terrified of Santa. We actually had to take the pic with Santa hiding behind us with his finger to his lips like keep a secret. Kinda creepy if you ask me...maybe Jackson is justified in his fears. He's usually pretty friendly towards anyone so this intense fear was something I didn't anticipate.
Connor had his school Christmas program. It was lots of fun to see him onstage and to get to check out what he has been learning. He kept taking lots of deep breaths throughout the show. I'm not sure if he was nervous or if the teachers advised them to remember to breathe. I love this pic of him - he forgot some of the motions here (or he just remembered he neglected to turn off the coffee maker.)
I greatly appreciate how understanding and loyal NWB readers are even when we go missing for over a month. Sometimes life steps in and overwhelms me. It takes me a little while to find my way back to our normal routine and a much calmer mind. Currently, I am trying to get NWB back to it's good old self - full of reviews, great giveaways, and daily photos. Since I'm trying not to overwhelm myself...my current goal is to bring you one of each every weekday. If I get another review up today than I DID IT! Hooray - that will give me the faith to try again tomorrow.
Fingers crossed for me and for your continued patience...I added a few pics of the boys below. We also went to the Zoo. I am absolutely amazed with the blue frog. It looks like a toy. I told Connor he could keep one of these in our home and then I read about it to learn it was poison. Best laid plans.
OMG - I forgot to mention. We cut Jackson's hair. It is gone. He had some seriously beautiful hair. It actually made tears fall to see it gone. Now he looks like a big boy and not my wild, crazy, freebird Jack. My husband keeps telling me it will grow back and I keep mentally punishing myself for making an impulse decision about something as priceless as Jack's gorgeous head of blond waves.
