Christmas is always busy with lots of family dinners and celebrations and this year was no exception. Christmas Eve-Eve was celebrated by going to church with Linda and Rick in the Leesburg ward, which was great they had a christmas program and the music from the Primary and Young Women was beautiful, it really brought the spirit to the meeting. Later that evening we went Lindas and had a beautiful dinner. Christmas Eve we went to Geoffrey's Dads House and had Christmas with Wises. It was a fun time filled with more good food and great family. And I have a feeling that it might just become our newest Wise Family tradition! Christmas morning was spent at our home opening presents and enjoying Jayden's first christmas(which was a blast!) I must add that the boys in my house including Jake our beagle must have made Santa's nice list because they made out like bandits!! Jayden had to take naps in between the gift opening because there were just too many! Oh and props to the all the Granparents for having such great taste and getting him 3 Tonka Trucks..he loves them all!! You guys are the coolest!;) Not to worry though, Santa took care of me too. For lunch we went to my mom's and then Christmas night we had dessert at our house with my dad, Deb, my step-brothers, great grandma Luce, and Rick, Linda, and Natalie. It was a great way to end the day! Christmas 2007 was a great day and full of great family memories, I am so grateful for my family and all of the blessings they bring to my life.

M-I-C...K-E-Y M-OU-SE...

Its Christmas time again and that means we're going to Mickeys Very Merry Christmas!!! It is definately a Teets/Wise Family tradition to go to Mickey's and one that I have to say that I really enjoy, its so fun going with everyone and riding the rides and no one does a better celebration then Disney. This year was great because it was Jayden's first Disney experience. Its so fun watching him take in all the sights and sounds and he loved going on the rides. I can't wait until next year when he can really get into the action and the fun of Disney.

Santa Baby....

Last Thursday we took Jayden to see Santa and he loved it! We were a little bit nervous because while we waiting in line he was starting to fall asleep but as soon as he saw the man in the big red suit he perked up. I just love that we are able to do all of these fun things with him. Its fun to experience Christmas for a first time with him.

How many pictures does it take to make a Christmas card??

A whole bunch!!! Last week I set up my room for his Christmas card photoshoot and what a task this was. I wrapped up a big box and placed him and a whole bunch of tissue paper around him well that was a mistake because he loves the paper! After two days and about 100 pictures we finally had some that would work. He was such a stinker he would smile and as soon as I would hit the button on the camera he would roll over, he has great timing!;)

Pizza Pizza

Well the verdict is in, if there was any doubt the I have a Geoffrey Junior on my hands the pictures prove it!! Jayden loves pizza just like his dad....I gave him a pizza crust to chomp on while I was getting ready for church on Sunday and well look at his face he loves it!! I guess its a good thing since we eat pizza at least twice a week!!

A day with Macie Kate

Today we went up to spend the day with Katelyn and Macie it was so nice to see them. I just love holding that sweet little girl she is so cute. Jayden was a great sport too he just played on the floor with his toys glancing every so often at Macie. It is so funny to compare them to each other even though they are only 5 months apart he is sooo much bigger than her..It is so precious how they look at each other it is almost as if they are saying to each other "hey, I am glad that you're here, it's nice to see you again, I missed you." I just love it!!

Today was the ward Christmas Party and I think that it turned out to be a very nice turnout.We had a chocolate fountain, great food, a sweet spirit, and crafts for the kids. I love my calling and I am so happy that everything went so well. I was thankful to everyone that helped out with the party and for the different auxillaries that brought the spirit into the program. I do love my calling and planning the different events but it is nice to be stress free now so I can do things like Christmas shop:)!

The Christmas Parade

Love the nose sis!!
Enjoying his first parade;)

Today we went to the Mt.Dora Christmas Parade to see Natalie and spot-me. Natalie looked great and besides being 85 degrees it was fun...

Purple Hand and an Ink pad

I have been wanting to get a Jayden's hand print but I just keep forgetting so, finally this week I did it and after 5 trys I finally got a decent one. The only problem is I think my ink might not have been the right one to use because it won't come off!! Oops! I have been scrubbing like crazy trying to get the ink off and well its a slow process...At least I got the hand print..

Go Gators...

Today was the gator game and it was a blast! Geoffrey, Jonathon, Missy, and I went together and we had a great time. It was a great date night, but I did miss my little gator at home. I love watching football and going to the game is always fun. We had good seats and the weather was cool so it was nice to be outside. After the game we stopped in Ocala and got the world's largest pizza ;) (well at least it seemed like it, it took up pretty much the whole backseat)..The best part about going to the game is that we WON! I said its great to be a Florida Gator!!

Yummy sweet potatoes
This thanksgiving we went to Linda's. It was great, we had a lot of good food and a lot of family there. It was especially nice because my dad,step mom, step brother, and great grandma were there. After dinner we made ginger bread houses to give out to people, and we did a grateful activity that involved everyone in the room. We all had to say what we were thankful for and what kind of service we were going to do this holiday season. There was really a sweet spirit that was felt there. Thanks Missy! Oh how I love the Holidays!! This was Jaydens first Thanksgiving and it was so much fun..I know that he loved it (or at least the sweet potato part) he just couldn't get enough! I know that there is not nearly enough room to list all of my blessings and for that I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father.

What's that? Do you hear the cheers of an elated mommy and daddy? Well if you listen close I bet you can hear it because he did it!!! He DRANK A BOTTLE!! Hooray Hooray!!!! For those of you that don't know it has been such a struggle for him to take a bottle, he has been fighting and fighting it and tonight he did it for the second time!

The Shirt Says it All

A Weekend Away

At the Omni Ready to go!! Daddy and Jayden at the Hard Rock!!
Getting our feet wet in the Hot Tub

This weekend we decided to get away while we can, so we packed up the car and went to Orlando. I know I know Orlando is not really getting away but it sure makes for a fun trip. We stayed at the Omni in Champions Gate and loved it. The hotel is so nice and the weather was so beautiful. Saturday we went to Downtown Disney and walked around, then off to Universal to eat at the Hard Rock Cafe(for the best quesadillas ever!!), and then its time to shop... Jayden was great and didn't even fuss which is pretty unusual for him, I think he enjoyed all the different sights and sounds. Sunday we went to church (which was such a change because the ward was so small, maybe 50 chairs)and then we spent the rest of the day snuggling, going for walks, and just enjoying our family time. It was great!! Needless to say we are already planning our next weekend getaway!!

One of my favorite things...

There are many things that I enjoy doing, like making cookies, shopping, hanging with my family, but one of my favorite things is snuggling my boy. I am so blessed to have my little angel baby in my life. One of the best snuggle times is when we are rocking outside and just watching the world go by..I love just holding him tight..sometimes I will even loose track of time and we will rock for close to an hour! We rock and talk about the things we see, or stories I know or I tell him about before he was here. Sometimes he will look up at me with this sweet smile that says "mom I love this snuggling too" it is that moment that I think to myself what did I do before he was here? How did I go without this? I am so grateful for my Jayden and the blessings he brings to our family, I am grateful to know that the snuggling can keep on even into the eternities because we are a forever family.

This morning we met our friends(Kasey,Atticus,Wyatt,Aimee,Colin,Jacob) at the park. It was so much fun! The weather was great and everyone seemed to have a good time. I just love days like this. Jayden loved the swings and even made some new friends. Hannah and Paula met us up there and even got in on the fun. I think there will be many more park dates in our future..
