Cory received his first electronic device for Christmas... a Leapster. As I was trying to reclaim my house from the Christmas mess today, I looked into the living room and saw this:

Mason was a little worried about his holiday weight gain and decided that he wasn't going to eat today. He wouldn't take a bite of baby food or rice cereal all day, and I felt like I was trying to nurse the Tasmanian Devil (he would not keep still!). I tried to tell him that not eating will only lead to binging later, but he wouldn't listen. Let's hope my chubby little man isn't catching Cory's bug.
Grandma and Papa Whitesell sent the coolest gift to Cory. It was a block of plaster with a skeleton hiding inside. Cory and Kevin spent the afternoon "excavating" the bones. Cory loved using real tools. The skeleton was awesome and only lost a few ribs in the process.

Christmas morning started early with Cory waking up at 3am burning up with fever. Kevin and I basically didn't sleep after that. It made for a long Christmas day, but thankfully the yule tide endorphins and sugar kept us from collapsing. This little guy slept all through the night and didn't wake up until Cory was almost done unwrapping everything.
Sneeky Santa bricked the doorway into the living room. Cory had to knock it down to get to his gifts.
Santa was really smart this year and was able to obtain some second hand toys to give to my Cory Boy. It helped make Christmas magical, even on a budget.
Mommy and Daddy were good this year, so Santa didn't forget them either. Yes, that is a box of Zipfizz by my stocking. If you don't know about Zipfizz, I'm sorry. It is my secret to being supermom. I only drink it every once in a while, but when I do, I am truly unstoppable.
We had a fun(ny) Christmas Eve. Holly hosted a yummy dinner and cookie decorating fest. Mason was happy and snuggly as always. How could any one not be smitten by this little angel?
Cory ate more cookie toppings than I'd like to admit (which may explain the stomachache at 3am). How would you tell this sweet face no?
We laughed and laughed as everyone tore into their presents. Kevin is our hero.
I guess Santa was feeling a bit cash poor on Christmas Eve. Kevin pulled out years worth of change he had been hording and decided to sort it. We made a family activity out of it. Who knew this kid would love playing in a giant pile of change this much?
Is it just me or are Kevin and Cory pulling the same faces in these pictures?
On Christmas Eve we had a winter storm so my workout was forced inside. While Kevin and Cory braved the weather and did some sledding, I bonded with Jillian. Mid workout this special package arrived.
blog giveaway, and the delivery time couldn't have been more perfect. I had to put them on right away to make sure that they would fit around my cankles and was thrilled when I was able to shimmy them onto my sexy legs.
Can you tell I was very happy in spite of the weather?
