Merry Christmoose

I know, I's only cute to me.   But right know he's the only one that will hold still long enough for me to take Christmas pictures of with out throwing a major hissy fit.  So he's just going to have to represent the whole Lafitte crew in wishing our family and friends a very merry Christmas.

So preeeety!

This was the sight I got to stare at out my window from work this morning once sun rose and the fog cleared.  It was beautiful.
 It was winter wonderland-ish.

He's officially official!

Aaron Beiber (I will sneak into his room in the middle of the night and chop that nasty hair off his sweet head) got his license Friday.  After much delay which included but was not limited to the driving instructor's father passing away in right at the time Aaron was to test, Aaron's mother's schedule, Aaron's father's schedule, Aaron's schedule, ect., we were able to finally get the poor boy down to the Drivers License Division to get the much desired license- FINALLY!!
 And what does he get for his patients?  A Dallas Cowboys key lanyard for the keys to his soon to be car.
Congrats Aaron Jean. 
Now slow down!

Maybe homemade Christmas cards aren't such a good idea....

This is what happens when I bribe make special arrangements with the boys in my family to gather around the fireplace and Christmas tree so that I can attempt to take a nice picture to make homemade Christmas cards with.....
 Seriously Moose?   Seriously??
 Next year I think I'll just use this picture instead.  Timmy's two baby's had curled up together on the recliner together in front of the fireplace last night.
 And I didn't even have to bribe them to make them look cute!

Oh there's no place like Hometown Christmas for the holidays....

What a wonderful weekend!
It was the Hometown Christmas Celebration this Saturday and what a fun afternoon/evening of food, activities and entertainment.  The event took place on Commercial street (which is just around the corner from our house).  All of the buildings along the street were transformed into a winter wonderland of a Kids Activity Room, a Christmas Cafe, a Christmas Boutique, a Gingerbread House, a Mrs. Clause reading room and Santa's workshop.

First stop......The Christmas Cafe'.
This is where the handsome Aaron Jean worked a double shift feeding the Christmas gathers .
 Also located at the Christmas Cafe was my bestest girls Berit and Lizzy.  They graciously voluteered for me at the Free Kiddee Treat counter by handing out popcorn, hot chocolate and cotton candy.  I'm not sure they enjoyed it but if I got to pick a place to be stationed at all night, it would be the cotton candy maching :)

 How cute is this girl?!!?
 Second stop....The Christmas Boutique where Tim's mom Carol hocked her wares
 She was selling her homemad velum Christmas cards, bags and tags.
 Third stop......a preview of the Kid's Activity room before the chaos began.  This is all the closer I dared get before the berage of children hit!
 Santa arriving on the fire truck  I never did make it down to get a picture of the Santa room but it was absolutely adorable!
 I have made note that Mrs. Clause is a bit ticked that the Mr. arrived on a fire truck and the Mrs. showed up in the most unglorified manner.  That WON'T happen next year, that's for sure!
 The super, awesome 4th grade led by the even more super awesome Mrs. Netz in a round of Chrismas songs. 
 How do I know that Mrs. Netz is super awesome? Because I walked down the street with her and we couldn't get two feet without some sweet child yelling "Hi Mrs. Netz!!"

 That would be one of Mrs. Netz's offspring......Chaston in the light grey coat singing along with his fellow fourth graders.
 My favorite part of the whole shebang?  
 She looked great.  She read a darling book.  The kids loved her.  I loved her.  She could definately turn it into a full time job.
 And my part of the party.....The Grinch.   Bob Peterson, The Awesome Tiffany Netz and JR Hopkin did a readers version of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas as I embarrassed my self as the Grinch with Chaston as Little Cindy Loo Hoo and Brennon as Max the Dog. 
 Can you see Yo  Bob's reflection in the mirror on the left.  He observed our performance from outside.  Why dad?  Do I embarrass you?
 The roast beast
 Cindy Loo Hoo asking what I'm doing with her Christmas tree.
 Max the Dog doing a little pre-show texting
 Cindy Loo Hoo all tucked into bed with her Left Foot Right Foot dolly.

 I'm sure it was not pretty watching me stuff myself in and out of the chimney. 
 Tim's mom on my left and Tim's dad on my  right.  Unlike Yo Bob, they came  all the way into the building to watch.
 A picture of my full make up BEFORE my nose started to run and ruined everything from my upper lip on down.
 The whole event was a blast!  If you weren't there you missed out on a such a fun-fun night.
