Hellooooooo Santa!

       What has one sick baby, one sick mama, one busy fireman and one long to-do list? Our household. That's what. I'm starting to think that that tune "the most wonderful time of the year," should go something like "the most chaotic time of the year," "the most exhausting time of the year," or "the busiest time of the year." Not to be a scrooge, because I love the holiday season just as much as the next gal, but during the other 11 months of the year I seem to forget how utterly crazy the month of December is. 
       This weekend was jam packed with holiday festivities. On Friday night we had our first holiday party of the season, hosted by the Meek's Bay Fire Department where Jon volunteers.  It was filled with good food, a visit from Santa, and fire engines. What could possibly better then that?
We were pretty excited to see what Nolan 
would think of the the ole' guy. 
We anticipated some pretty loud screaming. 
But the kid surprised us. 
Funny enough, this Santa was a woman. 
I think I heard a rumor that it was one of the fireman's wives.
This photo will go down as Nolan's first photo with Santa. 
Thoroughly enjoying his goofy expression.
We took Nolan on a tour of the trucks.
Notice Nolan's fire truck sweater...
...and socks.

       Friday nights festivities were followed by some gift wrapping and lots of cookie baking on Saturday. On Sunday we got to go to a cookie swap party. Everyone that came had a baby or kiddo in tow, so we swapped lots of stories and tips about baby food, sleeping, chilcare and milestones. I didn't take any photos of the cookies (which I've enjoyed several of today), but I did take lots of pics of BABIES!
Meet Huck, Romi, Hannah, and of course Nolan.
Hmmm...3 tame and manageable heads of hair + Nolan.
Hannah was showing off her crawling skills all day.
I love to think that all these kids may end up in highschool together.
Yes, Nolan is wearing the same pants as a girl. 
And socks. 
Jon said that I can't dress him anymore.

It was a great holiday weekend and the days 
before Santa arrives are really winding down now.
Hope that you're enjoying the holiday season!
