Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is doing a post today on What your family Christmas Traditions are.
We really only have one tradition and I started it with Alex when she was probably 4 or 5, every year the kids get to pick out a new ornament. I love getting them out every year especially Alex's because it's fun to see what they were in to that year.
Alex picked out Tinkerbell (she's 14 but is going through a Tinkerbell phase, this is the 2nd year in a row she picked out a Tinkerbell ornament).
Matthew picked out a Hot Wheels ornament and
Ryan picked out a Batman, which he quickly broke so Daddy has to fix Batman's leg.
I guess we do have another tradition, we always put up our Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving but I think alot of people do this.

Matthew and Aaron went to Georgia this past weekend so they could attend a Georgia football game (Matthew's first game). Matthew had a BLAST! And he did much better than this nervous mommy thought he would, he was tired but he handled it all like such a big boy (or so I was told).

I went with Matthew (and his class) to the Arboretum on Wednesday. I think the highlight of the field trip for Matthew was getting to ride a school bus for the first time. I didn't get too many pictures but did get a couple of group shots and some of Matthew with his friend E'Colby (he was in our group). I was only responsible for Matthew and E'Colby but a few of the moms and I decided it would be more fun to walk around as a group (so the group shots are not his whole class just the few of us that walked together).
Ryan is potty trained!!!!! He has only had one accident in a week and a half, can you believe it? He woke up one morning and just started going on the potty and hasn't turned back since, so crazy. So, after approximately 8 years of diapers (almost 6 straight years) we are diaper free is our house!
