The Polar Express

Last night we went on The Polar Express in Lubbock. Hayden had a blast! It was a very cold night but the train was warm and cozy. They passed out hot chocolate and cookies to everyone, sang Christmas carols, read the book, and played music from the movie. When we got to the North Pole Santa Clause and his elves were waiting for us to arrive. Then they got on the train and Santa talked with every boy and girl and passed out a "Bell". This was the first gift of Christmas from the movie. When Santa came around to us he asked Hayden what he wanted for Christmas and he told him a bell. Smarty. But then he told him that he wanted trains. Then they asked the kids to get in the isle if they wanted to dance. And of course Hayden didn't hesitate. One of the Elves saw Hayden and started dancing with him. He loved it. We are so glad that we went and hopefully it will return next year. Hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It's A Boy!!

We are so EXCITED. We went for our ultrasound today for them to check out the baby's anatomy. They made sure that everything looks good and is functioning like it's supposed to. Then she asked us if we wanted to know the sex of the baby, and of course we said Yes. Then she told us that "It's a Boy." We asked her if she was for sure and she said is the scrotum. Those were her exact words. We are so excited that we are having another boy. I think Hayden will enjoy being a big brother and I know that he will be great at it. I have attached a couple of pictures of Baby Boy Wiley. In one of the pictures there is an arrow pointing to the scrotum telling us that It's a Boy. It's really hard to make out. In the other pictures he has his hand under his chin and you can see his fingers.

Thanksgiving in Round Rock

We drove back home for Thanksgiving. Man, what a long trip. But Hayden is a sport. Thank Goodness for DVD players, they are a life saver. We had Bum Bum (Scooter), Nana and Papa's cat, up in Levelland with us since September so we were bringing him home. All that he wanted to do was either lay in Hayden's lap or down by his feet. They are Best Friends. We had a great and relaxing time in Round Rock. Stayed with Uncle JJ and Aunt Candace for a couple of nights and then went and stayed at Nana and Papa's. Had Thanksgiving lunch with Grandma and Grandpa C. And spent some time with Mamma and Pappa. Oh, also went shopping with Aunt Candance on Black Friday and had a blast. We need to do that again. We also took Hayden on a train ride in Cedar Park that he loved. We did our Christmas with Uncle JJ and Aunt Candace since we will not be able to see them at Christmas time. They spoiled Hayden soooooooooo much with tons of wooden train tracks, trains, and a Thomas Rolling Bag to put it all in. Thank you Jeremy and Candace for everything. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Miss everyone already and can't wait to see everyone soon.

Hanging Christmas Ornaments

We put our Christmas tree up early this year because we were going to be gone for Thanksgiving. We had our whole house, inside and out, done the weekend before Thanksgiving. It felt great when we got home from Round Rock not having to worry about putting any decorations up. Hayden had a blast decorating the tree. He was getting in the Chritmas spirit. He keep singing "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree." We asked him were he learned that from and he said from school. It was great! When he was decorating the tree he was putting all the ornaments on the same branch. At one point he had 7 different ornaments on one branch. Both, Blaine and I had to keep going behind him and putting the ornaments on differents branches and up higher. We had a great time and enjoyed seeing Hayden have fun.
