Christmas Can Come

It's over!!! I was in charge of the Christmas program again for this year. Last year, I wasn't so into it. I'd just had Cody via C-Section. Fun. This year, I was planning on only having 3 choir songs and making others contribute. That way I wouldn't have to do much! I only wished. I ended up playing for 5 other people along with conducting the 3 choir songs. I was also supposed to sing a song with someone but the program was a little too long and something had to be cut last minute. I and my singing buddy gracefully bowed out. It has been so hectic. Almost every night I had people coming over to practice. Add people (including the missionaries) coming over for dinner about once or twice a week, it led to some pretty crazy nights. But now I'm DONE! I can finally just relax and enjoy the holiday season, or what's left of it. I was very proud of the program though. There were a lot of people who came up and said it was the best program they'd ever heard which made me feel really good. I'm always so nervous to do anything in church because I always worry that it won't be good enough. Don't even ask me to speak in church because I get crazy, angry, nervous!!! It's weird.
On another note, I can finally catch up on the blog. Hence the next couple of post!

Handsome Little Boy

I just think he's so handsome! He did not enjoy Santa Claus. I've always thought that it's a funny concept that Santa is this big man with a beard that covers most of his face and we make our kids sit on his lap. No wonder kids are scared! He'll learn.

One of Cody's favorite spots is in Daisy's bed. He loves getting in there in the mornings.

Potty Training

Landon has been officially potty trained since the week before Thanksgiving weekend. He was a pro at it! I took one of my friend's advice and went cold turkey. I actually was just thinking of trying it out for a day but my friend said, nah uh. Once you start, you have to continue with it. No more diapers! So I did it. Landon doesn't even wear diapers at night! He's had a couple of accidents but he's upset when he does. I didn't realize how nice it was to only change one kids diapers now!

12 months

Just for fun, I wanted to look back on photos of Cody and Landon. It's funny, a lot of people will say how much they look alike so I started this blog a long time ago just to see if they look alike and are now looking more different or if they are starting to look more alike. It's fun to look over these pictures and see the differences and the similarities between these boys. FYI, Cody's always on the left which makes Landon always on the right.
1st Day

In their car seats on the way home from the hospital. Cody's just a tad bit smaller weighing in 2 lbs. lighter than Landon. His little newborn hat didn't even fit!
