I Asked Santa

I know that all of my stories lately have been about Carter but he just says so many funny things. A few days ago he came to me and whispered in my ear that he wanted me and him to go to the store and get Daddy some tools for Christmas and it would be our special surprise for him. I thought well of course we will do that! It was just the sweetest thing! Then last night he came up to me again and I am thinking he is going to tell me the same thing, just to make sure I haven't forgotten and that I knew that he was serious about doing that. NOPE, I was wrong. This time he told me that we don't need to go to the store anymore because he asked Santa to bring Daddy and Blake some tools because they both like them. He also asked Santa to bring Dawson some new toys and himself some Batman toys! Then he looked at me and said, "Mom, I almost forgot, I asked Santa to bring you some cleaning supplies so you can clean the house"! How thoughtful of him!

Family Pictures After 9 1/2 years

I have been wanting to take family Christmas pictures for years and just never have for one reason or the other. This year I decided we were doing them no matter what! I have been taking some pictures of many of my friends families and I figured I should do my own too. These are a few of my favorites. We were just at our house and there weren't to many great places to take photos but we got them and that is what counts this year!

The Razor blade just slipped.....

Carter has yet again decided that Mom needed another story to blog about! I just love him! Even though he is very impulsive and just doesn't think things through, EVER...he just can't help himself and I love that about him. Well, a few days ago we were doing our normal bedtime bath routine and it was Carter's turn. So he asked to run new water like always because he likes his water very warm and his brothers don't, so instead of just jumping in their water, he always drains it and re-runs it warmer! Smart kid, he doesn't want to sit in previously used bath water and what kind of mom am I, to think that I would be ok in the first place? Anyways, back to the story...Carter is 7, so I trust him to take his own bath and have done so since he was about 5. Some people might say that is to young but whatever! I feel that if a kid can survive all day at public school then they can surely bathe themselves! Which, in hind sight that might not be the smartest thing when you have a kid named Carter, so all of you out there that might have a Carter you might rethink how much unsupervised freedoms they have! =) Anyways, I assumed bath time was going along smoothly as always and then he came walking in the living room. He had the towel wrapped around his legs, and maybe that should have been a sign that something was going on but with Carter it was just a normal site. He could have been seeing how long he could walk that way without tripping! Then he pulled the towel off his legs and reveals a trail of blood. I don't freak out at this either because, again Carter! Ok, I think everyone gets that anything he does at this point doesn't frighten or really phase me in the least! I just simply ask him why his leg is bleeding? He says (with that cute, guilty Carter face), "well the razor blade just slipped and cut my leg". So I ask him, "are you sure it just slipped on its own or do you think maybe it had some help"? Then he just grins, that grin and says YEP, I'm sure! After a little more prying on my part, he tells me all about how much it bled in the bathtub and stung when he washed that leg with soap, none of which made him call for help or make a sound. I think he was hoping it would heal itself before he got out of the tub and had to come tell me. I am normally good about making sure I put all of my stuff up(shampoo, conditioner, razors, liquid bath soap, ...)before they even get home from school, because it is sure to get ruined or poured out or made into some sort of concoction. Needless to say, he was trying to shave his legs when the razor blade just slipped and cut him. We put a band-aid on it and told him boys don't shave their legs and all was well.

The next day at school, he went to the nurse for something and he showed her his cut and she gave him a new band-aid...I just wonder what story he told her about what happened to his leg?
