Jungle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way...

This is one of the cutest videos EVER! But on the other hand I may just be saying that because it's my son. Any how it's pretty darn cute. Clayton, I, and the kids went grocery shopping the other day, and they were playing Christmas music on the speakers, and Jingle Bells came on, and out of no where, as loud as he could Grandon started singing it as we shopped.

People stared and looked at us, but we really didn't care, we LOVED it. I encouraged Grandon to keep on singing. I guess the song got stuck in his head, because all it took was Clayton singing the first part of it, and off Grandon was again singing, so we got it on video! You too can hear Jingle Bells being sung by Mr. Grandon. We thought it was super cute, and super funny! Enjoy, I know we did!

Christmas 2008

So since it's been Christmas, and we've had Clayton's parents down for a visit, I've been slacking on my blog. So I am going to do my best to make one huge blog, and still have it make sense, and be informative! First off, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and have a very safe New Years!


Clayton's parent's arrived Monday afternoon, the 22nd, and stayed till the 26th. It was a wonderful visit. The kids really took to Grandma Cox, I think they are still trying to figure out who Grandpa Cox is.


We took them to Winter Wonderland in New Braunfels, it was the first year for it, we had fun, but I think the locals expectations for it were let down, but none the less it was still pretty cool. There is a video of the lights dancing to the music it's pretty cool, so look for that below.

Chrstmas Eve, we had a nice lunch with my Grammie and Grumpy (thats what the kids call Grandpa) and my real dad. We had turkey, yams, corn, stuffing, and etc. Then later on that evening we went to my Oma and Opa's house for our annual Christmas Eve get together. Growing up as a child that is one of my sweetest favorite memories, this was the last year that my Oma was doing it, but I'm glad to say that I get to carry on the tradtion, it's one that has always meant so much to me. Thank you Oma for those wonderful memories!



Grandma and Grandpa woke up Christmas morning to Grandon and Madison, in awe over the Choo-Choo Train that Santa brought them! There are a few pictures of us opening stockings and gifts, there is also a few videos of Linda and Rich opening there stockings.


After we did our whole thing at our house, the festivities continued at my parent's house! We also played a game of Settlers in all of that, and yes Clayton won!


Thanks Linda and Rich for coming down and spending Christmas with us, two years in a row! We loved having you!!!


There were so many pictures that I could post, but decided to keep it to just these five, and the four videos. The last video that I didn't mention, was Madison picking on her brother the best way she knows how, it's pretty darn cute and funny!

Pure Innocent!!!

My mother bought a new camera, and when we were just playing with it, and learning how to use it, she captured this AWESOME picture of Madison and Me. I'm totally in love with it, and is my new favorite picture. It's so sweet and innocent. To me it just shows the pureness of love and bond between mother and daughter. I think I'm going to have an oil painting created from this picture. I love my daughter so much, and I am so thankful, and blessed to have her in my life.

Wassailfest 2008

OK, So every year we have this tradition where we go downtown New Braunfels, and walk around. They close off the streets of downtown so no cars are aloud, and all the little shops serve free wassail, what is this wassail you ask? It's sorta kind of like hot apple cider, it's a German tradition and we love to do it, we go with my parent's every year, and have a blast here are some pictures of our fun!




This is the Train track at the Railroad museum this thing was HUGE! Grandon LOVED it!



My mommy and daddy posing at one of the local shops on the plaza!

It was sooo cold that night, we had to bundle the kiddos up!

When you can't sleep than what do you do?

If you can't sleep, mommy and daddy are still up then what do you do? You make cookies with mommy, while daddy takes pictures! Here are pictures of Grandon and I making pumpkin cookies at midnight!!!

Good Wife Tip #9

"Honey How Was Your Day?" No matter how trying your own day may have been, don't burden him with your trivial woes. He's had to deal with enough aggravations at work, and he depends on you to be his respite from such drudgery! If he chooses to vent about his day, on the other hand, it is your job to lend a caring, sympathetic ear. I'll let this tip speak for it self, all I can do is laugh....
