Christmas Gifts and Brody being a boy!

Yes, I know it's a little late to be posting about Christmas, but I forgot to tell y'all about my Christmas gifts. Along with the cute clothes, boots, TOMS, movies, etc, I also got two new things for the house that I really love!

My in-laws had one of our wedding pictures framed. I love it! I found out I was pregnant with Brody about a month or two after we got our wedding proofs and I got so busy planning for him, that I just put off ordering wedding pictures and having them put around our house. We hung the new picture above our sofa table. There was a big empty wall that I was waiting to find the "perfect" canvas for, but this was the perfect thing for the wall.

Josh and I have laughed thinking about if we could tell ourselves in that picture that life was not going to go exactly as we had "planned". I guess we all could go back and tell ourselves that life doesn't always go according to our plans, but always goes according to God's plans. I am thankful for that!

My parents got me new curtains for our kitchen. I love them! They didn't photograph that well, but they look great in person. They are a really pretty red! Now I just need to find a big canvas or something for the wall on the right. It looks really bare now :)


And this is really the best part of the entire post.....


Brody was playing today while I was trying to get lunch ready. When I went to check on him he was playing in my "hair drawer" with my brushes. About 2 minutes later, I heard him crying/screaming so I ran into the bathroom to find this.........Hahahahahahaha! Apparently he dropped his paci in the toilet and then went to get it, but got his head stuck. He was pretty upset. (Notice, he had been rolling the bathroom again!) I ran and grabbed the camera off the kitchen counter and then ran back to rescue him. Oh that boy makes me laugh! There is never a dull moment around here! And don't worry, I put the paci in boiling water before he got it back. :)

I found your blog through Kellys Korner last month and I just love reading about your little boy and his crazy adventures and your life as a sahm...my baby son, Aiden, is right behind yours as he just turned a year in December:)
Now seriously, how do they get their head stuck in a toilet??? That's awesome!! If it makes you feel any better, my son, Aiden threw the dog dish into the toilet today where it proceeded to shatter in the water, oh no!

Although, if something like that were to happen at our house (and I can neither confirm or deny that it may or may not have), Husband would want the BOY to be sanitized as well. Ha!
