Jingle Bell Rock

One night I was hanging out with my sister's even before Halloween. Kristen had just found a new Neil Diamond Christmas CD (a classic at our house) and we were listening to a few tunes when Zac found an all time favorite. Jingle Bell Rock came on and boy did this kid start dancing. And dancing and dancing. He came up with some incredible moves and then expected that all of us do them with him (which of course we did, why wouldn't 3 grown woman dance like fools for an adorable 2 year old boy?). I'm pretty sure we listened and danced through this song at least 25 times that night.

All through this season he immediately recognized when the song came on the radio and sang along word for word. One day he was with my mother in law at the store buying a new phone and the song came on. He had all the employees amazed as he put on a nice song and dance performance. Oh how I love this boy.


We spent Thanksgiving this year at my mom's house. It was the first year in a few that we didn't do the Human Race. It was so dang cold that morning. Next year we are back on though. Had to do my own exercising at my house while watching the parade. I was in charge of the nut cups.

Everything was delicious as usual.
I am so grateful for this wonderful family that I am a part of.
Zac practicing taking pictures of himself. Not half bad really, almost artsy.

Happy Halloween

Why not really? It's 2:00 in the morning and I have just finished editing the 150 pictures I had on my camera, so why not post about Halloween on December 31? Zac was the cutest cowboy around. We had gone to my grandma's house and she had this fun hat and that decided it for us. Luckily Zac has a very talented grandma for the rest of the details. We went to my sister's trunk or treat and he met up with a very beautiful princess Greta. These two are so cute together.
And here is Zac with one of his guys. We don't go anywhere without at least one, and usually it is one for each hand. We started with just the Mickey guys, but since Christmas, we have expanded, oh how we have expanded.
Two fabulous aunts!
And after the trunk or treating, you must relax with some good old Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
The actual night we went trick or treating in my mom's neighborhood.
The haul...
And this is how Zac would chose to be all the time if he could.
