Santas and Ladders and Beards, Oh My!

What a fun few days we have had. Our church had a Christmas party. Surprisingly, Little J was afraid of Santa, he was also up past his bedtime and on the verge of a melt down so he may have liked Santa and just not been able to express it.
The Party had a Mexican theme and J really enjoyed his burrito, it was the first time he had ever had one, but I think he will be having more in the near future. He was especially cute to watch as he attempted to get the whole thing into his mouth at once.

After a Nativity program they broke out the Piñatas, they even had one especially for kids between 18 months and 3 years old. I don't think it will surprise you to know that it took quite along time for these kids to break the piñata. It may look like J was about to wail on that thing, but he was all bark and no bite he would approach with a mighty swing and then lightly tap the piñata. It was hilarious.
Ken and I worked together to put Christmas lights up on our house. It took about 3 hours and when we were done we noticed that one of the strands wasn't working. I plugged them in the next day and the strand in question was working, then I checked a few hours later and it was out again- Maybe it is on a really really slow blink....... who knows, at some point this week I am going to climb up the ladder again and push in all the LED's to make sure their connections are good, hopefully that will take care of the problem.
Do you remember last winter when Ken got some strange sores around his mouth and chin? The Doctor thought is was Staph, but it turned out not to be, and they went away so we didn't bother finding out what it was. Well the sores came back a couple of weeks ago. Ken learned his lesson last time, the lesson being, Shaving the sores causes them to spread. So he took a few weeks off shaving, ending up with the good beginnings of a beard. Well the sores were pretty much gone and so Ken decided it was time to shave.....
What do you think? From the nose down he kind of looks like Wolverine. Don't worry, he shaved the rest of it off too, eventually.
