Christmas Day

The next morning, we woke up and went to church. After church we opened our presents that Santa delivered at night while we were sleeping. Doodle Bug couldn't believe that there was more!!!

Doodle Bug enjoyed his third Christmas. It was so exciting as parents to watch the sparkle in DB's eyes when Santa showed up and when he played with his toys. He has actually played all day long: rockets, kites, cars, planes, and trains. A boy's dream come true.

Christmas Eve

We started the Holiday by making and decorating Christmas Cookies for Santa. Doodle Bug really got into it this year. I showed him the steps and he did the rest. The hardest part was keeping him from eating the raw cookie dough!

Later that evening, we went to Grandma and Papaw's house for dinner and presents. Doodle Bug was coming down with a cough and stuffy nose, so we started with a nebulizer treatment. After dinner, Doodles was coloring in Grandma's office. Suddenly, there was a knock at the door. SANTA had arrived. Doodle Bug had been talking about Santa all month. But, now that he was here, DB wasn't to fond of him. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.

Ride Makerz!!!!

So, while we were walking around Downtown Disney, we stumbled upon a place called, Ride Makerz!! Well, many of you have heard of "Build a Bear" workshop. This is similar, except you build your own car. Doodle Bug and Dadda were in heaven!!!! At the front of the shop, they have several real cars on display... which of course was just the START of the excitement!
Next, the boys picked out the body of the car. There were so many to choose from, but finally they agreed upon a lime green colored Challenger. Then they had to pick out just the right wheels and tires. For us ladies, it would be similar to picking out just the right shoes and jewelry for our outfit. (However, I think we can find shoes and jewelry faster than it took the boys to find the right rims!!!)

A quick check from the "official" to make sure we had chosen all of the right parts...

...and then they were off to build!!! Here is the first car that Father and Son built. I'm sure it won't be the last!

I wasn't sure who had more fun :)

Can you see the excitement in his eyes???

Putting on the finishing touches...

The two boys had so much fun together! I love watching them do things together. Hubby is such a great Dad. Doodle Bug is so blessed to have such a caring father who loves to spend time with him. I love you, babe!

Thanksgiving Weekend!

We started the weekend off with lauching a few rockets. Usually Doodle Bug wants nothing to do with pushing the button. He typically stands a safe distance away from the rocket. Not today! This time he was all about launching them.

The day after Thanksgiving, we all went to Downtown Disney to "walk off" some of that turkey and pumpkin pie! Doodles stumbled upon a Christmas Tree decorated with all sorts of TRUCKS!! He was in awe!

Hubby wanted to stop by the Harley store to check out some shirts. Doodle Bug hopped on the motorcycle and didn't want to get off!!
Here's my sister and her boyfriend... Awww, how cute!

Disney fun...

Doodle Bug needed a haircut, so off to Disney we went! The stylists at the Main Street Barber are the BEST!!! We've tried other places, and Doodle Bug throws a fit and his hair never turns out. So, our annual pass to Disney has been so helpful. We might have to renew them next year just so DB can get his haircut!
The park was already decorated for the holidays and had Christmas music blaring from the speakers... I loved it!
Apparently, Doodle Bug loved it too! He couldn't just walk down the street, he had to Dance his way through the crowds!!!!

We can't go to Disney without letting Doodles drive the go carts. So here he is...for the fifth time!

We couldn't resist getting a family picture...
Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

More to come...

Oops, I forgot about 2 activities from October...

I can't believe I left out the Pumpkin Patch and the "Falling Leaves Festival". Doodle Bug ran around the patch and picked out many pumpkins. Here are just a few pictures from our fun-filled day!

Then, that evening we went to the town of Celebration where they have a fall festival. Doodle Bug ate his first caramel covered apple! As you can see by the wide eyes and big bites, he LOVED it!

We did manage to get one family picture in front of the lake!

Of all the fun things to do at the festival, DB's favorite was to run circles around an old Oak Tree. He could have done that same thing at our house... go figure!!

Finally, the fake, paper leaves fell and Doodles and Dad caught a few. Someday, we'll head up North to check out the real fall leaves!!

WARNING: this post is loaded with pictures!!!! Here is what we've been up to in October! We started the month off by going to Long and Scott's farm. They had all sorts of things set up for kids of all ages! They had underground slides, a playground, corn mazes, hay rides...
We decided to try the kiddie corn maze (the adult maze takes between 3-6 hours to complete!) The kiddie maze only took us 30 minutes (and it was hard and confusing).

Dad, wait up!!

Mom, I think Dad went this way, but I'm not sure!!!!

After the maze, Doodle Bug wanted to play a little Put Put Golf. He had a blast!!

Then, he insisted on swinging on the "Big Kid Swing"!!! Mom was nervous, but DB did a great and hung on tight. This was his favorite part of the whole day! Where did my little baby go?

Doodles even played on the Over-Sized tires. He wasn't a fan of the sand though!

The next weekend, we decided to carve our pumpkin. Mom drew the design, Dad carved and scooped, Doodle Bug supervised to make sure we didn't mess it up. He tried to help Dad scoop the insides out, but one feel of the slimy innards and he was done!

Here is our finished Jack-o-Lantern. We nicknamed him the "Great Pumpkin Eater".

The next weekend is Halloween. We went up the street to a church parking lot. The parishioners had their cars parked with their trunks propped open. They decorated the trunks and kids could go from trunk to trunk to Trick-or-Treat. They called it Trunk or Treat.
Woody had to start the evening off by giving Buzz Lightyear a talk about not crying during Trick-or-Treating. It worked, because after their discussion, Buzz was all smiles!!

Here we are at the start! Dad is Woody, Mom is Jessy, and Doodle Bug is Buzz Lightyear from a Toy Story.

Here are a few of the decorated trunks. Doodles totally understood the concept of walking around and collecting candy. He's been saying "Chicken Feet" (his version of trick-or-treat) ALL day long!!! Once we get there, he wouldn't say it, BUT he LOVED going up to people and getting free candy.

Doodles collected so much candy that Mom had to carry the candy basket.
We got home in time to pass out candy to our neighborhood kids. Doodles learned about giving and sharing because he got so much candy, that we decided to add it to our candy to pass out to the trick-or-treaters.

Of course, Doodle Bug had to eat some of the candy while we waited for kids to come around.

Doodle Bug was such a big helper passing out candy. If the kids were across the street at our neighbor's house, DB grew impatient and he tried to throw it at them. Luckily, I stopped him and reminded him we have to wait until they come to us.

Overall, it was a GREAT Halloween!!! It was so much fun to experience Halloween all over again through the eyes of our two-year-old. He had so much fun and loved the fact that Mom and Dad got dressed up to.
So you're probably wondering why the name of this post is Ha-ha-ween???? Well, Doodle Bug has been trying so hard to say Happy Halloween, but when he says it, it sounds more like Ha-Ha-Ween!!
So, Ha-ha-ween to everyone out there!
