Booty Pop

The last couple of weeks I have been up late doing things around the house. I saw this infomercial last night for these booty pop. They are panties with padded butts. I am not sure how comfy they are, but I have such a tiny behind I wonder if they do what they advertise. My mom always makes fun of me for how flat my backside is, wouldn't hurt to try a pair

These boots are made for walkin...

These are the boots I really want for my birthday. I can't believe how expensive they are. They are $80 on sale, that's just crazy to me. I've been wanting them to wear with my black leggings with a sweater dress. I found these on which has them on sale for $28, but of course they don't have them in black in my size. Bummer! I guess I will have to keep my fingers crossed that I will find them in a Ross or Marshalls.

What a great Christmas we had...

Christmas for the St. John's actually started the day after Thanksgiving. We do a Christmas with my moms best friends family every year. This year they weren't going to be here for Christmas, because they are moving to Cali. The next weekend we met my moms other friend at Chick fil a for some lunch where Carson recieved another gift. The weekend after that we did Christmas with my two brothers, and sister in laws, and two nephews. The next week was Christmas. We started on Wednesday, Christmas eve eve. We went to dinner with Ryan's family that were in town from Tennessee then went back to his grandmas for our gift exchange. Christmas eve we went to my dads house in the afternoon back home for Carson to take a nap and then off to Lolly and Pops house for our Christmas with them. Finally, Christmas day. Since we have Carson we do our Christmas with him when he wakes up, he plays with his toys for awhile then we head to Lolly and Pops again for lunch and more gifts with Ryan's other grandma and Aunt and Uncle. After lunch we go to our last place for the day, my moms. We open presents from my Aunt and Uncle, my mom, and my grandma. I think after all of this, I want to start a new tradition. Maybe just staying home and everyone can come to us. I just don't want to cook for a ton of people, my house isn't big enough for that anyway. Although, we traveled the world for the month of December we still had a great Christmas! Carson is very loved and very blessed for all of the family he has. Needless to say, I am ready for the New Year. Here are a couple of pictures from Christmas Eve, and Day...

Christmas cookies

Last night my parents had a work dinner to go to, so I kept Parker for them. We had a full night planned, we went to the store to get sugar cookie mix, sprinkles, and icing. We then went to eat dinner at CiCis, went and looked at some Christmas lights around town, nothing great, and then home to bathe Carson and decorate cookies. I can't wait for Carson to be old enough to do all kinds of Christmas crafts and make some traditions. Next year we should be able to start. Hope all of my few readers have a Merry Christmas!

RIP Razor

This is a SUPER old picture, but it's only the picture I could find of my dog and I. On Tuesday my step dad, Ron, had to put our family dog, Razor, to sleep. I want to say he just turned 6, a few years ago he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, which is very common in Boxer dogs. Once that was diagnosed his back started to get bad, and then he just started gaining weight because it was hard for him to be very active. For some reason the summer time was easier on him than winter. He just started getting worse and worse, it was just too hard seeing him in such pain. We did what was best for him. I love animals, but I am not one to get real attached. It was different with Razor, he was such a good dog. I remember when I was pregnant he liked being near me, and just lay around and be my guard dog. It was really sweet, when Carson came along he became his guard dog, and would sniff his face with his big snout and it would tickle. Really cute. We sure do miss him!


Sunday night fun

Sunday night Carson and I sat down to watch the season premiere of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." I decided to make some popcorn. I never eat popcorn, I hate the way it gets in my teeth, but Carson had never had it and I thought it would be a good before bed snack. He ate almost the whole bag of popcorn, it was really cute to hear him smacking on popcorn, although I hate smacking. The picture didn't come out that great it was taken on my phone, but it shows a little piece of popcorn in his mouth.



Carson's new Tricycle! I am so excited, I got this on sale for $40! It is going to be a "Santa gift." We only have two gifts to give him from Santa so far. That is only if Ryan does what he says and finishes the vintage Power Wheels Volkswagen bug we have for him. I had a hard time getting Carson off the bike when we were in the store, he even tried climbing over the part of the cart he sits in to sit on his bike in the buggy. I know he seems young for a tricycle but the tag said 18 months and up, and he sits on it well. We will have to work on the pedaling but I am pretty sure he'll have that down in no time!
