We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We were sad that we were not able to spend Christmas with either of our parents but it was so nice to be able to just stay home and have a little Christmas of our own.
Austin was very excited when he woke up at 6am. He loved all his presents and he has been playing with them none stop. He even wants to sleep with his new toys.
Austin's done it again. He has managed to surprise me. I should be used to it by now. He's climbed the top shelf in his closet and he has flooded our apartment at 4 in the morning. He's used the cat litter box as a construction site. I don't know why I was so shocked to find him in Bennett's crib. Don't worry. Bennett wasn't in there. We had a major discussion about Austin staying out of the crib. He assured me he won't get into the crib again. Bennett won't be sleeping in his crib alone with Austin any time soon.
I'll give him this......he has good problem solving skills.
Our cat Chloe fell off our balcony. We live on the second floor. Don't worry..she is fine. She was pretty freaked out though. Jeff and I heard her crying and we weren't sure where she was. He went outside and looked down from the balcony and she was on the ground. I was afraid she would take off running but she was so scared she just hunkered down where she fell. She has never really been outside. She didn't like it. At least she has learned from her mistake and doesn't lean out through the bars of the balcony anymore. You should have seen how fat her tail was!
This is our elf, Austin named him "Elf". He goes to the north pole every night and tells Santa how Austin has behaved. When he comes back he hides in a new spot in the house. Our elf is not as mischievous because I don't need any extra messes to clean up.
I love making cookies. I was so excited to make cookies this year because Austin is old enough to be able to really participate. He helped me mix the dough and then he put sprinkles on all the cookies.
