santa baby

I'm lazy and just getting around to post this now... But, a few weeks ago I took Gunnar to meet Santa!  He came to the local Library and little Guns got all dressed up to go see him for the first time.  A big, fat smile would've been great for pictures, even a hysterical breakdown would've been funny.  But my kid is just indifferent.  He is too cool for Santa apparently...
Granted he did just wake up from the tiniest of naps (since the library is 5 minutes from our house).  But still, it looks like he is just bored of the whole Santa thing.  C'mon kid, you don't want coal in your stocking, do you?!
And back at home, I tried to get a shot of his adorable outfit.  That didn't go over too well.  This photo had the least amount of screaming.  Not a happy camper, but oh so adorable!

I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner; less then a week away now!  I wish it would hurry up and get here and the days would just keep on going.  I know that's a horrible thing to say about my first baby's first Christmas.  It will be wonderful and we will get to spend time with our family, but what we really want is to celebrate it (and all the other holidays) with Dad when he finally gets home sometime in the coming weeks.  

But how great is this?... Patrick's Company's ADVON team arrived home early this morning!  What a wonderful thing for all those families to have their loved ones home in time for Christmas.  I was so excited for them I haven't been able to sleep since getting the updates a few days ago!  I am also incredibly jealous, of course (ha!) but mostly so happy they have made it home safe and sound.  Now, just waiting on our turn!  I have a feeling it will be like the last few weeks of pregnancy and the days will seem like decades.  BUT!  Compared to what we've already been through, it won't be long at all...
