This post is dedicated to my cat, Jersey. We have had both cats, Josie and Jersey, for 4 years. I got them for Allan for his birthday the year we were married. Here are a few pictures of them our first Christmas with them. Josie found the Christmas tree right away that year and we still have to keep her out of it every year. Jersey is bigger now, but she still has the same annoyed look on her face all the time. I think she is disappointed that she doesn't have cooler owners.

Allan has been having me open a present each night for the past 2 nights. The first one was from Cayden. I can't even talk about it without crying! I'm such a wimp! Allan reenacted that commercial with the dad giving the mom a present at 2am while the mom was up with their little baby, saying he couldn't wait to celebrate their "first Christmas as a family". Ahhh....I love it. Anyway, it's a heart shaped necklace with a quote about being a mother. My boys are so sweet! This is going to be a very special Christmas for us!
Yesterday my parents picked Cayden up from my job to spend the day with him. They did some shopping together then Allan and I met up with them when we got off work so Cayden could meet Santa. Cayden had actually already met Santa last week in the bakery at Publix in the Villages, but it wasn't quite the same. The mall we went to is an outside mall and it was freezing! The little guy was all wrapped up and sleeping in the Baby Bjorn and Allan woke him up when it was his turn to sit on the big guy's lap. Cayden wasn't happy at all to be woken up and uncovered and thrown into a cold handed stranger's lap, then having all these people making rediculous faces at him and clapping and swinging things around to try to make him smile. He just wasn't having it! I think Santa had had enough too. Hopefully he won't hold it against Cayden.
Today is my last day at work before Christmas, and one of 4 days left of having Cayden at work with me. Everything is set for him to start school January 4th. Tomorrow me, Allan, and Cayden will celebrate Christmas together, then Thursday we head up to Ocala. So since I likely won't be writing again before then, Merry Christmas!!!
