Making Christmas

Today was a fun day to set up our tree for this Christmas... We went to the local True Value in West Seattle and picked up a nice little tree for our little house.
Antonio was excited to get a tree and so was Havana... laying next to the Little People Baby Jesus, she said she should be included in the scene.

While Jeff decorated the tree he helped me go through all the ornaments to choose the ones he was fun. We pulled out all the fun things Grandmama bought him last year, the singing Pooh and Carousel...he loves them both so much this year.

Antonio loved making Christmas!

Antonio Is Thankful For...

His mommy? No.

His daddy? No.

His Havana? Nope.

Here's what Antonio's thankful for:

Monday, November 24, 2008


Last week Antonio went to visit his cousin Preston and Auntie Becky with Jeff. It was the first day of Jeff's week long Thanksgiving break and Antonio was so excited to see them.

While at a park, Auntie Becky said 'let's go on a hike' and now that is Antonio's new favorite word!
Which he now says as: "Go See Hike" - it is how he says many "go see girlfriend" which means he wants to go to Easy Street for breakfast, or "go see trains" which means he wants to do to the Coffee to a Tea shop and play with the trains and kids, or "go see Teacher Rachel" which means he wants to go to art class, or when Laurie comes it is "go shopping PCC" which means he wants to take a LONG walk to the nearest PCC, or when Jeff is home it is "go shopping Ca-co" which means he wants to go to is so funny to listen to his "go see" the minute he wakes up.

Happy Ha-o-ween

Havana had another torturous Halloween. Now that Antonio is in her life she has to dress up every year and as you can see she doesn't really like it....

But Antonio was in the Halloween spirit. He started the day going to visit his cousin Preston...and he wore this great Tigger costume he borrowed from Preston.

Later, Antonio decided to see his cousin Elijah (the monster) for some kids fun at the Children's Museum.

Antonio was thrilled to be back at the water table and when we left to get daddy his Tigger costume was soaked through.

More videos and pictures when I get my other camera loaded....

A-N-T-O-N-I-O that's how you spell Antonio

Last night, before fall back, Antonio decided he didn't need to sleep. Of course he did take a 3 1/2 hour nap, but then didn't fall asleep till after 10pm! But, while in his bed he was busy talking, as usual, and we finally figured out what he was doing. Spelling his name! We captured it on video today....before shovelling more snack in his mouth.

Tonight he is out like a light!


Antonio went to a farm - E I E I O
And on that farm there were some chickens and roosters - E I E I O

And on this farm there was a horse....E I E I O

And on this farm there were some sheep - E I E I O
And on this farm was Elijah, Uncle Me-Me and Daddy...E I E I OAntonio went to a farm....
