What did we start...

A few months ago Carson was having really bad dreams at night. So needless to say, Jonathan and I took turns sleeping with him at night. That's right, now he will not go to sleep without one of us in his bed. Great! another habit we created and now have to break-

Christmas has come and gone

Christmas 2010 has come and gone in a flash. Wow, all the preparing and excitement is over... Carson had a wonderful Christmas. Of course he (we) were blessed this year. He received many great gifts which he has been playing with non-stop.
A recap of Christmas day.
We went to my parents home at 9:00am for presents and amazing breakfast.
We came back to our home around 1:30pm and Santa arrived with more presents.
At 4:30pm around 25 family members arrived for dinner and exchange of gifts at my home.
11:00pm the final clean up and time for bed.
photos to come.

One month

until we leave for Florida for 10 days. YEA! We are going to Amelia island to visit Jonathan's brother and family for a few days. Then off to Orlando for Disney and my all time favorite Islands of Adventure. My parents and brother are meeting us at Disney. We are not telling Carson as we want him to be surprised ;) We are praying for beautiful warm weather while we are there- Please bring on the sun and sunscreen (of-course).

This mornings conversation:
C: Mommy when I kiss you on the lips will I get girl lips?
M: No honey (with a smile) you will not get girl lips.
C: Then why do you put that stuff on my lips like girls?
M: That stuff is chap stick and it helps your lips from getting chapped.

C: Mommy do you think Santa will bring Kyndel (our dog) presents?
M: I think so
C: But Mommy she did not make a list

M: Carson its time to get dressed.

Tubes vs No Tubes

Well, we took Carson to CHOP on Tuesday for his on going ear infections. As we thought, they would like Carson to have tubes in his ears. I have mixed emotions about the procedure however I know its needed. But when? We are thinking about the beginning of February-

cold and dark

UGH! I can not stand how cold and dark it is in NJ this time of year. I dislike it! I was getting Carson ready for bed tonight and he said, Mommy can you turn up the sun. :)
We are looking forward to our Orlando,Fla. trip in January. Bring on the heat!!

The next year and quick prayer

Carson will be starting a new pre-k christian school in January. He is not aware of the change yet as he hearts his primary teacher. The school which he will be attending has 6 students in the pre-k class. He will have to wear a uniform along with being in class by 8:10am every morning. He will attend 2 full days and 3 1/2 days. The school offers pre-k thru 12th... It's a rather small private school however they have a solid foundation.

Tonight, Carson was playing with his Lego's and I heard him talking really loud..
Carson: Dear God PLEASE help Mommy rip her nose.
Me: What rip my nose, Carson?
Carson: Yea, when you have a tissue and your ripping your nose.
Me: wiping my nose, Carson?!
Carson: Dear God PLEASE help Mommy wipe her nose because she does not know how-

Am I alone

Carson is getting so rough with other boys. He wants to wrestle, hit and call them names for "no reason". I am truly hoping this is another phase of toddler-hood. Time outs do not work, taking away his Lego's works for the first few hours and taking away the t.v. is a joke...etc....

New York

Last Saturday Jonathan, Shauna, Holly and I went to NYC for the day. We had a full day of taxi rides, subways, busy stores with long lines, trendy restruants and seeing the off broad way show Stomp. It was rather cold and crowded however there were many laughs and funny stories. All and all it was another wonderful trip to the big apple.
Best (my sister) watched Carson while we enjoyed our trip. Best and Carson also had a fun day as they went shopping and had dinner with Santa. Carson is still talking about his day with Best.
