Four Fun Filled Days

Judah and I have been on our own this week. Josh and Paeton left Monday for North Carolina on the youth winter trip (They should be home in  the next 2 hours). I had told Judah in advance that we'd have a date on Monday and go to build-a-bear, a movie and he could get a happy meal.

Then Tuesday we had a "Pajama Party" which basically just means we never got out of our PJ's all day, made tents out of blankets and the furniture, and rented Mr. Poppers Penguins (which he's now seen about 6 times). Yesterday I set up a play date for him and his best friend... they exchanged gifts (Judah gave a sock-monkey and received a bin of army men, making Judah a very happy little boy) and they went to the park to play for a few hours. Then last night while Judah was sleeping, Santa arrived and today he's been counting down the hours until Dad & Paeton's arrival by opening one stocking stuffer each hour (the magic time being the 25th minute of each hour.... so we're about to do another one). Here are some of the goodies he's gotten so far:

 I Spy DS Game
 Spider Man Watch (which is helping him count down the minutes to the next stocking stuffer)
 Lego Man (who is kinda creepy... holding an axe?)
And a star wars light-saber sucker!

All in all, it's been a fun four days with my little man. Lots of hugs and kisses and lots of cuddle time.
