First Christmas Update

Monday, December 22, 2014

Happy 3 days until Christmas.
Our family has already had tons of family Christmas activities so I wanted to go ahead and do an update!

My office had its Christmas dinner on Thursday night!  Our boss took us to 131 Main and it was amazing!

Me and Lindsey... waiting for everyone else to leave!

Me, Lindsey and Christy... still waiting on everyone else!

The whole gang... Vicki, Lindsey, me, Christy and Dr. Peele!

I found the 2 pics below on my husbands phone.  They are from Nicks school Christmas program that was a few weeks ago.

This is after Nicklas freaked out and I had to go get him!

See sweet Brooklyn in the white and pink pj's!

My dad and Jamie took Nicklas and Brooklyn to Burger King on Saturday.  These kids had not seen each other in over a week and I was told they had so much fun.  My mom, Kellyn and I were getting mani/pedis!  Thanks mom and dad for a fun day!





Saturday evening we had Jamie's extended family Christmas!


Each of the cousins who are under 18 exchange names.  Nicklas loved what Kelsie got him!




Aunt Vivian also always buys for all the kids!  Nick loved his firehouse!





Grandma Pruitt opening her present from Nicklas.  Of course Nicklas had to help!




At home still playing with his new presents!

Sunday afternoon Matt and Andrea brought over Nicklas a present!





He has been doing LOTS of artwork!!

Sunday night we went to our church Christmas program!  After the program there was a big surprise!!






Since Nick gave Santa a high five I wanted to see if he would sit on his lap!



This is as close as he would get!!!

Had to throw in a pic from this morning... such a big boy!

Merry Christmas!










Short and Sweet!

Happy Tuesday.
Can you believe there is only 9 days until Christmas.  Santa has one more present to buy then we are finished.  I still have presents to wrap but i'll worry about that the day before Christmas tomorrow!
How are all of you doing on your Christmas shopping and wrapping!

We have a busy, busy week ahead of us so I wanted to do a small post on what we did last weekend so my next post wouldn't be so crazy!

My dad sent me this pic sometime last week.  He had dropped off brooke and went to peak at Nick.  I could almost guarantee that Nicklas took every single one of those toys out of the bin!


We went to a local place to look at Christmas lights on Saturday night.  Nicklas LOVED the lights.  He will say "lights, pretty" its so sweet!

But visiting Santa didn't go as planned.  Nicklas will see pics of Santa and say ho, ho, ho so I really thought that visiting Santa would go great... I was WRONG.  As soon as Jamie handed him off he started bucking like a bronco!  Santa didn't know what to do.  So I grabbed Nicklas and we did a family pic!!

So Saturday night... well actually Sunday morning, Nicklas woke up at 2:30 AM and stayed awake until 6:30 AM... so obviously we missed church.  He did sleep until 11:00 AM so that was nice!  


After we woke up Jamie decided to burn some leaves so Nicklas had to help him do that!!

Nicklas speech has gotten so much better recently!!  His teachers have even mentioned it to me and Jamie.  Praise the Lord!!

Happy 9 days til Christmas!!



Dog pile and stage fright!

Happy December blog friends!
This is my most favorite time of the year.
Nicklas has really started to show interest in all things Christmas which really makes my heart smile.  He says lights whenever we see Christmas lights outside, then he will tell me that the lights are pretty!  Every time he sees Santa or a snowman he says ho, ho!

Jamie finally agreed to put the star on our Christmas tree!  Every year I get Nicklas an ornament of something that he likes... last year it was Mickey, this year Lightning!  He loves seeing them on the tree!

Last year I bought this tree on clearance at Target... well it lasted about 2 hours....  but it was fun while it lasted!

Wheres Nick?!  If his face is hidden then he is hidden!  

Hmm... How'd they get in the living room... and on the couch... and snuggled up to me?!  Sorry Jamie!

How can you make this face get up?!?!

My mother in law bought me an ornament for her tree!!  Best Mom 2014!!  Yep... thats me!


Nicklas and Uncle K bonding over some farmville!

Oh hey mom!  Grammie had Nicklas a good snack and some cartoons on the TV when she picked him up one day last week... Little monkey was living the life!  Thanks Grammie!

My latest coupon haul!  $7.41 for it all!  Oh Yah!

Dog pile with Aunt K!



Please welcome the newest member of the Pruitt household.  He sits here all day long, every day... he is such a good elf!  Nicklas loves for me to pick him up so he can wave and tell his elf that he loves him!

Friday night Jamie and I went to his company Christmas party.  We had a wonderful babysitter take care of nick.. her name is Jamie by the way!  We like to keep it easy!

On Saturday morning Nicklas and I got to have some alone time.  He enjoyed watching Frozen!

                                        Frozen must have got serious!                                     

 I looked down the other night and Nicklas had his toenail clippers and was pretending to clip his toenails... smart kid!


 Then he tried to facetime somebody!

Sunday night Nicklas had his school Christmas program!  


 This is as far as Nicklas made it... made eye contact with him and it was OVER!!!  He sat on my lap the rest of the program.  Brooklyn did wonderful and I got NO pictures of her because I was taking care of boo boo!

My parents had us over for dinner after the program and this was on their street.  Look how big and pretty the moon is!  Just a sign of God watching over us!

Last night after dinner we decided to go look at some Christmas lights.  This house we went too is decorated so pretty and its free to get in!





After we got home Nicklas wanted to watch some Dora... while he sat in his Lego table! Ha!

Now to go catch up on what is going on with all of you!!
