On Christmas Eve Tanner got a trampoline from Mommy & Daddy. Even YaYa came over and jumped on it.
Later we celebrated at YaYa and Papa Earl's House. The boys got more stuff than they can ever play with and that was just the beginning.
On Christmas morning, we woke Tanner up and asked him, "Do you know who came last night?" He said, "Yeah, Santa" and just laid there. Jeff said, "Lets go see if he ate your cookies." Tanner walked in the living room, right past the huge pile of toys and said "YEAH, He ate them, He ate them!" It was so funny. Then he went back and looked at his toys and saw Hungry Hungry Hippos first, not the Big Big Rocket ship. Finally he saw it and played and played with all of his toys. Conner like all of his toys too, I think.
Then for lunch we went back to YaYa and Earl's for the Carpenter's Christmas.
More fun stuff for the boys.

(I know some of these are a little scary but I promise I was right there to catch him if he started to fall and his head Did Not hit the floor one time.)
All of this was done with a little bribe. Tanner could open a present if he would hold Conner and take a good picture. (It was something he had already played with and wanted YaYa to wrap yesterday but forgot about it!)

The kids really had fun and didn't make too much of a mess. Except for the crunched up fruit loops on the floor (sorry Brent).
Their gingerbread men were really cute. Here are some pictures of them.
It was really good but there were some Redneck floats. Tanner had a great time. One of his favorites was the Marching Band.
Conner stayed in the warm car with Mamoo and Papoo.
Jeff and Tanner picked up a whole bucket full of candy. We ate all the good candy (chocolate) before we left the parade.

Tanner didn't sing or dance but he was definitely a star. He had to make sure he could see himself in the video monitor at all times. He did do a little thing with his shirt. He just told me as we were watching the video he was "missing my microphone". Well he was cute anyway.
The directors of this program should have known that skirts were a bad idea with kids.
I'll try to post all the videos on YouTube under search TannerD

Yesterday sometime after 10:00AM, Puppy got lost. For those of you who don't know, Puppy is Tanner's stuffed animal that he takes everywhere and he can't sleep without. He has had puppy since Feb. '06. Puppy was last seen on the back of the couch by YaYa. He is brown, with a red handkerchief with faded white hearts. His ears are chewed on and his neck is very thin.
If seen at our house please return. He is missed very much!
I have looked all over this house. I have looked under the couch, in the couch, in the beds, under the beds, in Tanner's toys, in Tanner's room, I have even looked in the cabinets and the refrigerator. And we didn't leave the house yester day, so I know he is in here somewhere. I think I am more worried about Puppy than Tanner is. He slept with 3 other stuffed animals last night and this morning when he got up, I asked him " Did you sleep good?"
He said, "Yeah, but I was missing my puppy." I almost cried. So if you have any suggestions on where a lost Puppy might go, please, please let me know.

Yesterday it was raining so Nate came to play, instead of sitting in the truck in the woods hunting.
These kids are precious together. I got out the rainy day tents and put them together with the tunnel. They played in there for a hour.
I think it is so funny how their minds work and they come up with the craziest things to say!
Just a few quotes from the last few days from a 3 year old and an almost 3 year old.
I asked Tanner what does Santa say?
Hi! HO HO! Captain!
I found them in the bathroom talking away and when Nate saw me he said "We ain't gone tell you what we said" then laughed.
Nate came in with a Gator shirt on, then had on a Seminole Jersey, later because he was so dirty he changed into just a green shirt. While we were watching the game he said. "I'm not a Gator or Seminole anymore, I'm just going for the green team"
While playing on the train table Tanner said "Oh, no, Mommy, Nate Nate broke my rail rail track".
If Tanner doesn't have time to poo-poo on the potty he says "It will come out in a little while"
This morning I had on gray tights. When Tanner saw them he said "Oh, what have you got on your legs?"
When Nate saw the tights he said, "What is that on your legs, long socks?"
Every morning Tanner greets me with "Good morning Mommy, the sun says GET UP!"
I know that I may just be a little partial, but these have got to be close to the cutest kids around.
And I am so glad that they get to grow up together! Watch out Conner, you have Double Trouble coming your way in just a few months.
