I want to make a special announcement. After a bit of a hiatus, one of my favorite blogs is back up and running, Brady's Blog. Take a gander over to the right and give him a little read. It'll be worth your time. Brady is a great writer and his daddy's not too shabby either!

Thanks to Auntie M, I have a brief recap of activities in SD. The whole reason we went was to celebrate my cousin Jerid graduating from college! We are so proud of him! It was great to see the family while we were there including cute cousin Kyle, and cousin Aaron and fam. I played horsies with my cousin Ethan, until he went outside to nail Jerid with snowballs. Check out this shot!
The sky's the limit,

No one knows for sure why, but when we go on our little trips to SD, two things happen: 1. It blizzards. 2. Mom forgets to take pictures. It happens every time. Unexplainable. So we made it home from the white knuckle drive yesterday, and I'm going to show you the two pictures she did take.
Another mystery of the universe is why my great-auntie Jodi thinks she needs 5 calendars hanging in her kitchen. Here, if you look closely, there are FOUR. And then this one is on the fridge. We all thought it was funny. Not "ha ha" funny, but more weird funny. So we had to take a photo.
PS - Maybe Auntie M will email me some pic's from the weekend and then I'll post 'em. Hint, hint.

Let's just file this under "Things Not To Tell Grandma About." On Saturday we loaded up the gang and headed to Lake Harriet for the annual Reindeer Run. Remember last year? Well, there wasn't a blizzard this time, but it was only about 10 degrees with 25mph winds comin' off that lake, and well, let's just say brrrrrrr! I had my trusty Twins blankie to keep me warm, and it really wasn't that bad in the sun. It was fun to just get outside and hang out with our pals. After a strong finish we headed out for Bloody Mary's and chocolate milk, and salad. It was a great day!
PS - Super Duper shout out to my pal Patrick! Happy Birthday bud! Sorry about not getting together this weekend, but we'll party like its 1999 today at school!

I tell ya what, these Christmas traditions just keep getting better and better everyday. The other day I received a package from my Great Grandma Nelson. She sent me an Advent Calendar. Now, this is amazing. It has 25 little doors that you're supposed to open every day in December to count down the days until Christmas. AND THERE'S CHOCOLATE BEHIND EACH DOOR. EACH. DOOR. Honestly, life is good. Oh, and its hard to smile with chocolate in my teeth.

Last night I par-took in another Christmas tradition and watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I thought it was a great show....until......THE MONSTER! If you look closely between the slats, you can see my dust!
It's all about pride,

Remember the good times we used to have together? You know, times like this, or this, or even this. Well, sadly and happily those days are over. Check it out....my new boat bed! I even have a life preserver pillow! Grandpa and Daddy took apart my baby crib, and then put together my new big boy bed! I was a little sad about it at first, but now I love my new bed. I love to make Daddy crawl in with me, and then I tuck him in, kiss him on the forehead, and tell him stories about my day. I have slept through the night each night so far, and I don't get out of bed until Mom and Dad say its OK. Something that is really helping me get through the transition, is that Little Baby E is going to be using my crib, and I love that I can pass that down to the little peanut. I just love family tradition.

G & GE came to town for the weekend, and uncle Derek and auntie Chris came over for the holiday. We had a great meal, but everyone turned very lazy after it was done, and no one wanted to play. At least Grandma still had energy, and we watched Polar Express together and drank hot chocolate. With marshmallows! I love the holidays!
The following night we went to Derek and Chris' house for happy hour. I ate 500,000 chocolate kisses and M&M's. In all the fuss, we forgot to take a photo for Bump Watch 2008, but you can kind of see it in this photo, (somebody get her a chair! Mom - STOP eating!) She's 25 weeks along...getting closer!
Be sure to tune in tomorrow to see which milestone I "put to sleep" over the weekend!
