Bring these to your next get-together and you may never be without an invitation to a party again. Try not to be offended that you may only be invited for the sweets.
I Know Santa
Any time I think about getting pictures of the boys with a department store Santa, a scene from the movie “A Christmas Story” pops in my head. It’s the one where Ralphie realizes how long the line is to see Santa Claus, and all you hear are screaming kids. No thanks.

He’s Firmed up a Bit
I haven’t posted much about this little one lately. He’s getting some chubby cheeks now, but like most babies, still does what babies do: eat, sleep, and poop! He even smiles, and it’s the cutest thing ever!
