A Visit to Sea World

Usually we try to get to Sea World a lot more often than we did this year. Who wouldn’t take advantage of the whole family getting in for free? We only have a few more months of that before Corey turns 4 (really???). So, while Aunt Margaret and Stephanie were down we went with them. Although it was hot, we had a great time!!! We even did some things we don’t normally do because we were there with someone who has never been :)        IMAG0476                      Corey loved watching the baby dolphins play              IMAG0496IMAG0495

Who says boys can’t play dress up?


Corey loves to dress up. I think it is a great way for him to use his imagination, and get some exercise!!!


This is him in full motion with his Super Corey costume on. He does all sorts of cool ninja moves with this get up, not to mention catching the bad guy while at it.


We can’t forget his T-Rex costume!!! This is from when he broke his toes a couple of months ago. I am a little worried for when he grows out of this one, it is his favorite. I might have to sew extensions on the legs and arms!


We can’t forget Lightning McQueen. He never did get to wear this one as a Halloween costume, but he loves to race around in it!


Sometimes dressing up isn’t as serious as fighting bad guys, being carnivorous, or winning a race. Sometimes we can be silly about it and wear daddy’s undershirts and socks!!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve Christmas Eve started with a party thrown by the Jackie and Molly. Corey had fun playing with the kids and running around. We left after a little while so that we could get home and embark on our own Christmas Eve traditions before Corey fell asleep.

We got home and I made some cookie dough, rolled it out, and we got to cutting out Christmas shapes. Corey tested the cookies before, during, and after cooking them. It was determined that they would pass Santa’s inspection. So, we put out a plate for him and crawled into bed so he could come visit.

Decorating for Christmas

decorating for Christmas 2010

Normally we decorate for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year I had to have Corey’s birthday party that weekend, so there was no decorating for us, except that Sunday. So, decorating actually took place over the course of the next week. Corey, of course, had to add dinosaurs into the mix, and he grouped ornaments together so they wouldn’t be lonely. I was brave and put glass ornaments on this year, and we only had one casualty.
