A quick Merry Christmas post!

We are about to leave to go to the Columbus Zoo with Daniel, Jaylon and Erin, but I wanted to post quickly before we left!
Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas!!

Some months ago, I got out Daniel's old Matchbox car carrying case which also contained Daniel's cars. Jaylon fell in love with them and I have bought him many more since! BUT one day he found an old ice cream bucket that I had and commenced to putting all of his cars into it.
THAT is now his "Matchbox Carrying Case". :-) Oh, it is pictured below. Yep, he likes the "bucket-style" carrying case. I've even put his cars neatly back into his dad's old carrying case, but I found him dumping them back into the bucket one day.
Soooooo, the bucket, it is! Why fight it? :-)

Below is Jaylon and Grandpa looking through Jaylon's new book "Only One Woof" by James Herriot.
Jaylon isnt quite patient enough to have an actual story read to him yet but he does love to look at the pictures and, in his own way, comment on them. :-) And, of course, I always have a running commentary going on when I look at books with him. Grandpa does, too. :-)

These are the rolls that I baked for our family get-together which we had a couple of weeks ago. I though they looked so pretty so I just had to take a picture of them! :-)

The sun actually broke through the clouds one morning last week and little Jaylon just had to see what that bright light was! :-) He laid in it and played with one of his little cars.

Oh, and this next picture is of a Christmas Candy Pizza that I made for our family get-together! I got the recipe from Mary at Life In A Small Town. I took one to our ladies Christmas party at church and everyone loved it!! Just click on the link to Mary's blog up there and it will take you to the post that has the recipe! Mary has a fun blog so take some time to look around and get to know her!! :-)

Below, is a picture of my front porch! Well, one half of it, anyway! I think it looks so pretty and Christmasy!! I'm so thankful that we have snow this Christmas!

Have a very Merry Christmas!

I remember those cars and the garage that Jaylon is playing with! lol...I remember Daniel and I playing with it all the time when we were younger! I'm happy he likes playing with them, too!

Love that photo of Jaylon laying in the sunshine!

What boy doesn't like a bucket of cars? It's much easier to put away. Jaylon reminds me of a cat laying there in the sunshine.

I could almost smell the roll through the internet.

Have a wonder Christmas!

That Christmas candy pizza looks really good! I may have to try that recipe.

Eva has an old purse that is full of little dolls that Sir Nottaguy-Imadad has picked up here and there. She is in little girl heaven playing with her purse!

Love, Love, LOVE the picture of Jaylon laying in the sunshine playing!
