Faces of Blake

Three Reasons to not use your self timer when taking your Christmas card photo:
1. You will be sweating for the photo from running back and forth trying to get in the picture.
2. It takes forever.
See photos for reason number 3.

I realize it is an early Thursday Three but wanted to post these cute pictures.

Thursday Three - dedicated to Grandma Jan

Three things going on with us.
1. Blake's birthday. He loved his birthday this year and it was really fun to see him get into it.

2. Holiday Decorating. In our marriage I have never really done a ton of holiday decorating. Our last place was so small I didn't need one more thing taking up space. This year I did my best to make things look festive. Thanks Paiger for the wooden nativity. I love it!

3. I finally put a nail hole in our new walls. I am still no where close to really decorating but we have done two things that I am excited about. Our new clock for the living room. I think we could have gone even bigger but I am still happy with our choice. I would like to thank my friend AB for helping me make the tree wall hanging. I chose to hang it in my bathroom and couldn't be happier with my decision. My trips to the bathroom are much more cozy with the new decor.

On a side note, we are potty training the Blake Man. Going great!! Today he watched himself go pee all over the kitchen floor. He seriously just stood there and watched and had no idea what was going on. The best part was that when he was done he couldn't wait to help me clean it up. Not sure we are all on the same page.

Today during a church meeting at my house every time (seriously every time) I looked over at Blake he had no clothes on from the waist down from "going potty" on the toilet. He heads in to sit on the toilet about 30 times a day. I was not going to push the potty training stuff until after the holidays but he is so into it. Hopefully at some point his body catches up with his enthusiasm for the toilet paper going down the tunnel that goes under the house.
