Christmas Praise Night

Every year our church has a Christmas Praise night where members of the church family sing Christmas carols, read the Nativity story or perform Christmas songs. At the end of the night, we all stand around the church with candles as we sing Christmas songs.

This year, Phil, Tommy and I read “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Here’s a picture:

You can’t see it here, but Tommy was trying SO HARD to eat the book 😛 Or maybe he was truly captivated by the pictures…

Probably not.

Anyway it was a lot of fun and I hope to make it a tradition, at least until he’s too embarassed by his parents to go up on stage in front of the church.

Roll, Baby, Roll!

Gone are the days of the stationary baby.

I used to be able to leave Thomas on the floor for a minute while I ran to the bathroom. No longer.

He can’t crawl yet, but boy that kid can roll! I put him on his blanket and within 10 seconds he’s off it and halfway to the dining room. When he has his floor time, I have floor time too, because I have to chase him before he rolls into a wall, a table leg, the dog’s behind…(that last one happened last night. Seriously, inches from the dog’s butt).

I’m thankful for that exersaucer because at least I can put him in that and sit on the couch or take a bathroom break without worrying about what he’ll roll into while I’m gone for that brief moment.

I guess that’s just a taste of what’s to come. 😛
