It's Beginning to Look A Lot LIke Christmas!!!

The Robertson home was decorated for Christmas on Saturday and I am very happy with the results. We bought a new 7.5 foot tree last year which is WAY TOO BIG for our small room, but I LOVE it. Curtis and I had always used white lights until last year. We decided to switch to colored lights for JC, and I have to say that with the variety of our ornaments I am really happy we did. Our tree is very eclectic and colorful!
Yes, that is the Elf on the Shelf hanging on the silver cone tree! Santa sent him to watch JC on Friday, and let me tell you: I have seen a dramatic improvement in behavior since his arrival. Awesome!!! Our elf's name is Mark!
Some of my favorite ornaments on the tree: Bully and his bone (Of course... I will always love my Bulldogs no matter what!)

Santa holding the mistletoe over Mrs. Claus' head and stealing a cookie (This was one of the first ornaments Curtis bought me after we were married. I think it is SO CUTE!) This last one is called "Braveheart" and it was created in memory of September 11. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this ornament went to the American Red Cross. That day was so life-changing for so many people. I always think about their loss when I look at this beautiful heart.

I am happy that the decorating is done for us to enjoy throughout December! Most of the gifts are bought and wrapped, and I am looking forward to a fairly stress-free Christmas season this year since most of it is already done. Our family is really getting into the spirit. How about you?

I like to move it, move it!

It's Will Ferrell's dance performance in "OLD SCHOOL" meets "MADAGASCAR"... with a little bit of Napoleon Dynamite... Pure gold. My son has some AWESOME dance moves. The twirling ribbon is something they made at daycare this week. I asked him to show me his dance tonight and this is what we got!!!

I cannot take credit for any of these moves. He has been breakdancing as long as he has been walking... no idea where he got it.

Try to ignore Curtis' phone conversation about "The Office." :)

And now, without further adieu - here is JC !!! (sorry it is so dark... you'll be able to get the general idea of the awesomeness of it though.)

Halloween 2008

JC was Superman for Halloween this year. We had a great time Trick-or-Treating in our neighborhood before heading to the mall for a magic show and dinner at Chick-fil-a.

I thought the decorations at this house were SO cute!!!

JC also enjoyed playing in the new play area at the mall and of course riding the carousel!

Twilight Series

"Sleep, my Bella. Dream happy dreams. You are the only one who has ever touched my heart. It will always be yours. Sleep, my only love." --Edward Cullen, "Eclipse"

OK guys... I have been reading the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer with some girls at work. We are trying to get all four books in the series read before the first movie comes out later this month. I just finished book 3! What great reading this it. I am not usually a big reader, but seriously, I have not been able to put these books down.

The books are action-packed, romantic and funny! Just really great! I highly reccommend this series if you are looking for a good read.
