Christmas Ideas for Little Ones

If you are looking for something for your little one, these are a few things on Cason's Christmas List.  He won't be getting all of them...and he doesn't even know he has a list, but hopefully it will inspire you if you don't know what to buy.

Mini Dyson Vacuum. 
Dyson Upright Vacuum
Um, how cool is this?  It really works and apparently they can empty the canister too.  It looks like the Amazon one is sold out but I found this one at http://www.leapsandbounds.com/ for $34.  I think that's reasonably priced considering other Dysons are un-reasonably priced.

I have never purchased anything from Pottery Barn Kids before.  I love most everything there but the prices are a little high.  I think the prices on these are pretty good too.
Foam Bowling Set
We have a long hallway and this foam bowling set would be perfect.  I think Nana might get this one for him, she doesn't know it yet but Cason would love it.  It's on sale right now for $39

Foam Golf Set
The golf set is also from Pottery Barn Kids and I think I might get this one for Cason.  It's only $19 on sale which is actually the same price as the fisher price golf set at Target.  Now I know what you are thinking, a 1-1/2 yr. old is too young to play golf.  Well, we are looking at the next Tiger Woods folks (without the adultury!).  He takes Mikes club and swings it at a ball and i'm certain if he had clubs his size he would be a brilliant tomorrow.  Ok, I'm not totally certain but for $19 I'm willing to take the risk.

I'm pretty sure every kid needs one of these... a magna doodle.  We had a tiny one that just appeared at our house somewhere which probably means Cason lifted it from another kid.  That one broke but he would carry it around everywhere and make me trace his hand.  Much safer than markers and paper at this age. 

I got this board book for Cason at the Modern Art museum and I currently cannot find it in my house.  Very frustrating because I was really looking forward to it.  It has pictures of Andy's paintings and identifies the colors.  The perfect gift for a future brilliant artist. 

Touch the Art: Pop Warhol's Top
Another book.  Apparently this book has paintings from modern artists and it's a touch and feel book.  It encourages the kids to feel the art in a 3-d kind of way.  I've had it on my Amazon wish list since before Cason was born but I have not seen one in person.  The Reviews are good Though so I may just have to get it.

Martha's version:

My version:

They may look different but I bet they taste really similar.

This is my first recipe of Christmas cookies for the year. I freeze the dough then can have homemade cookies whenever I need them for events!

I can't stop!

Taking pictures of C that is. Love that we can manipulate photos so much from a phone!

He's started fake smiling now (see below) so I have to try and get a good shot when he is not looking.

New project

I got this...

And now I want to make this...

Yes, those are cookies. I think I should start now because it will take me till Christmas to get those made. By the time I'm done I won't want to eat cookies ever again so I hope someone wants cookies as a present!

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

I got a basketball goal for Cason. He loves it. He thinks he can make a basket.

Mike thinks it is his. He raised it up to the top and plays like he's on a real court.
Luckily Cason is okay just watching.

...and I am okay making smores.

Halloween- part 2

For Halloween night we went to my moms in McKinney. Cason was a pirate and learned how to trick or treat.
He's not great at it yet but we have some more time to learn.

Cute little pirate.

Knock. Knock.

Some neighbors came over with their red wagons. The other kids were running around crazy.

But Cason was just happy chillin.

Could someone bring me some more candy?

Cason got a little hungry after all the relaxing.

Ahhh, pj's and game time. Great end to a long day!

Halloween- part 1

Halloween has a few stages for us every year. Stage 1 is actually his parade at school which I don't have a lot of pictures of, so technically this is stage 2... Which is the carnival at church.

He went as a ranger fan this year. I know, I took the easy way out but I had to save his other costume for that night and it was a little too warm for the day.

Here he is with mike... Who was also a ranger fan.

The first bite of candy. Yummy.

Oh look- a bird.

The wagon was a brilliant idea.

Hard work deserves an ice cream. That was fun!
