Let me just preface this post with this:

I spent most of my morning yesterday in the Emergency Room...not because one of the kids was hurt. No. People have asked. Numerous times. No. I was there because the cutie you see below slammed his head into the bridge of my nose during one of his tantrums and made me see stars. And look like I just fought Ali for the belt. HA! No broken bones, just a contusion and a giant headache. In my nose. It's been quite interesting!

And I am finally back with an update in pictures... YAY!! Jacked up nose and all. :)

We have spent most of our Saturdays cheering on our Gators. And Nana couldn't resist christening Layne with his first Florida hat. :) I have to admit, he is pretty stinking cute!

And we baked cookies....LOTS of cookies. All for Santa of course. *wink* Bayleigh loved helping in the kitchen.
Then, we did the annual trip to the mall to sit with Santa. Someone was not a fan. At all. I mean,
crying, screaming, name it, the little man did it in an attempt to escape the grips of the nicest looking Santa I have seen. HA!!! Of course, we had to have a picture. Every child deserves a screaming Santa picture. :) Oh and also note Bayleigh's face - that is her "OH MY STARS, what is HIS problem?!?!?" face. hehe

While we were out visiting Santa, we had an elf intrusion!!! Zack (our elf) brought along some of his comrades and proceeded to trash my kitchen and dining room. Bayleigh was tickled and Layne was enthralled by the mess we found. Too fun!
On Christmas Eve in their new Christmas pajamas and sitting with their present of choice. They each get to open one present on Christmas Eve that they pick from under the tree. Love this picture (even though Bayleigh is squinting). Hey - 2 out of the 3 isn't bad!! :)

We have been busy!!! And there are tons more pictures to come of our Christmas festivities - all 3 of them. :)
I am off to apply more ice to my nose and hope I don't get black eyes!
Enjoy this Wednesday and stay warm!!!
