This Christmas break was so wonderful, because I was able to spend quality time with my family. But the time flew by so quickly. I look forward to having my life back on a schedule, but will miss the family time.

Tanner is our first child, and we are excited about almost EVERYTHING he accomplishes. It's so fun! Like most parents, we think he's a genius! Putting shapes in their correct place, playing with puzzles, and building with blocks are all exciting events to see happen. But, alas, I am still waiting for that one beautiful sound..."mama"

About the same time the A/C went out in my vehicle, the clothes washer would stop on certain washing cycles until I pressed on the lid. I didn't mind checking the washer every now and then to make sure it completely finished washing the laundry. Until the switch that changed the cycles fell off the washer.....my husband has now taped the switch to the washer. Yeah! I have my washer back....with some extra bling!
Now, to ice the wonderful cake of failing technology my cell phone won't charge. It may have been because of the heat of my car, the chocolate milk that coated my phone or the child who slobbered on it. Any combination could have caused the demise of my cheap cell phone. All I know is that I am completely fed up with my world of technology crashing down around me. Take my A/C...I have fans. Steal my washer...I have quarters. But don't TOUCH my phone! I guess it's another trip to Wal-Mart for the latest in go phones. Sigh....heavy sigh.....

Next, Tyler gave Tanner his first cake. Nothing really happened at first. Tanner just poked it. After he got some icing on his fingers, he didn't seem too excited about the new experience. Tyler gave him a taste of the icing.....mmmm...not too bad. Tanner continued just to poke around. Not exactly what I had expected. Tanner tends to be quite a messy eater.
After cleaning up, Tanner opened up his presents. He opened up his present from his Aunt Jamie and Uncle Jackson. He enjoyed ripping the paper and seeing what was inside. I think he like the gift. Don't you?
Tanner opened many more wonderful gifts and toys. Our living room is filled with noise and laughter. I never realized how much room a little boy only 12 months old could need. But he enjoys using every inch. It was a wonderful day. I have been so blessed. Tanner is such a joy. I cannot imagine life without his wonderful smiles and giggles.
