Black Friday Santa Visit

visit santa 2012-3
We've been talking about Black Friday most of the week, although we are not big shoppers we were hoping to be able to find a pre-lit tree for the basement. Heard of a place called Gertens which is a florist-y place. When looking up their website to see if they were having Black Friday sales I saw that Santa would be there. We wanted to take Isaac at some point but were really dreading the line. The Santa at Gertens was a 'bring your own camera' which was appealing, so I figured we take a look; if there was a big line we'd do it another time, if not then there's our chance. And luckily there was no line at all!!! Which was great because he got to warm up a little.

Then came the lap sit.... Okay at first but then a typical response.

We even got a family picture, although mom and dad were not prepared (I had no makeup on and hadn't even brushed my hair and Kyle is due for a haircut)

Turns out we didn't get a tree there, but spent the rest of the day searching for one and shopping a little. And of course ended up at Mall of America of all places on BLACK FRIDAY! lol, but it actually wasn't too bad. Parking was a breeze and Isaac loved people watching and dancing in the stroller everytime we went into a new store :-P His new thing is dancing and it's so cute! I'll have to try and capture a good one on video soon.

Some VIdeos

Just wanted to share some videos from today.

Wanted to document his walking skills. He reminds me of a guy tring to walk the tight rope, lol.

He LOVES Harpo's bed(s).

Here he is playing with Harpo. Harpo is such a good boy and knows the difference between his toys and Isaac's toys. He's never tried to play with Isaac's toys, but he still likes to play with his own :-)

Isaac is 11 months

I turned another month old on Sunday. I can't believe one year is just around the corner. Not sure what or if we are doing anything for his birthday. Just might have a quiet little celebration at home.

He's changed a LOT the past few months, crazy how these stages are so short. He's walking now, standing up on his own in the middle of the room. He loves to clap and sing, his favorite song is probably "if you're happy and you know it clap your hands". He LOVES books as well, his favorite book right now is a Duck & Goose Pumpkin book and any of the flap/puzzle books. He loves knobs and light switches, and opening and closing cabinets/cubbies. And he also grinds his teeth :-/ all six of them. No sign of any more at this time. He also had his second cold the past few weeks. He's still at two naps a day, although every once in a while he'll just have one.

That's all that comes to mind for now, he's growing up and getting more independent every day {sniff, sniff}

Harpo turns 6

I can't believe Harpo is already turning six! Of course we had to get some birthday pictures. The birthday hat actually ran out of numbers after 5, so I had to make my own number 6 :-)

Here are some pictures of the three of us (Harpo, Isaac, and I) celebrating, heehee
