Quick Santa story: We were in Wal-mrt and there was a santa taking pictures with kids. I specifically avoided him becuase I knew D would be scared. So we were going down the isles and then who should come up from behind and scare the begezzes out of D, no other than the santa that we were trying to avoid. D jumped from the cart basket to up around me neck and then just clung there. the santa just kept talking to him, not clueing in on the fact that D is terrified of him. Anyways, we will just say that his first "santa" expereience may have scared him.
Onto the story behind the picture: Our friend's mom and dad are Santa and Mrs. Claus for the holidays. Larry looks like santa 365 days out of the year. D is so used to seeing him that when they went to change into their outfits, he didn't think twice about sitting with Larry & Carol. Our own personal sitting session with Santa & Mrs. Claus. (thanks larry & carol)
Diesel has been growing faster than a weed. He is talking up a storm and has been adding about 2-4 words per day to his vocabulary. He also has started to exert his independence. He is strong willed, determined and absolutely is a daddy's boy who is showing signs of seperation anxiety again. Glad to know he is typically developing :)
We hope that everyone has a great time with family and friends. Happy New Years too!

On another note, he gave a little girl her first kiss. She was definately surprised and we told Diesel he has to slow down and at least take her on a date first :) Sorry Zoe's parents :)

We all have been busy, but we are making it. School, work, Master's classes, side jobs, house projects, adoption going ons, paperwork, laundry that doesn't always get folded, dishes that seem to multiple like rabbits, dogs that don't like the colder weather in the morning and have to be shoved outside, and chasing a 18month old are just some of the happenings around here.

Diesel has had a busy summer with many trips to the fountains, cousins visiting, minor surgery and time with Gramma and Grampa. Time with Nana and Poppy will be coming soon and a 3rd ET get togther too.
We all have enjoyed the slower pace of summer. I have been working at FireHouse pottery and Adam has been doing odd jobs for people, such as painting, car repair, lawn care and just about anything else. I am glad I married such a handy guy, he comes in handy around the house too.
The following pictures are just a small glimpse into the lovely summer we have been having.

Now that Diesel is a biped, he is constantly on the move. He has kept us VERY busy these last few weeks.He is now exploring crawling and climbing into and onto things. Here he is under the side table in the living room.
Yes, we are guilty of letting him watch Thomas the Train on Sunday mornings. He stops and dances to the song. Unfortunately I know all the words, sorta scary.

At the end of the day, we wandered onto Ben and Jerry's free cone day. To our glorious surprise, Adam's favorite weather man was serving ice cream. Tom Trtan was a good sport and took a posed picture for us. Fun times!
