Tons of Christmas Hoopla All Rolled Into One!!!

So, please excuse all the pictures :O Because there is a lot!!!

We started off our Holiday Season with a visit from Nana and Poppy Laird the weekend before Christmas. Cash always has so much fun with his Nana and Poppy. He has a tendency to make his mommy and daddy sad when they are around because he wants absolutely nothing to do with us :( He is literally attached to his Poppy's hip when he is around. Sue and Ed came down on Friday night and stayed throughtout the weekend. We did a lot of running around and just hanging out. We always have a good time when they come for a visit.......they have a tendency to spoil us a little too much though.

Thanks again for coming to visit and for all the wonderful gifts.

Cash enjoyed opening gifts much more then being a gift:)

Relaxing in his cool new chair that he got from Nana Poppy.

On Tuesday night we had our little family Christmas. We went out for our traditional Mexican food dinner :) and when we got back someone had come for an early visit.......SANTA!!



Eating some popcorn and watching "Horton Hears a Who."

On Christmas Eve we headed down to Duncan to visit Grammy and Pop Pop. Cash LOVES visiting Grammy and Pop Pop's. Their house is so big he just runs and runs and runs around it. There is so much for him to get into and that's exactly what he does. The first thing he does when he gets there is go to the playroom and get out a vacuum, a cordless phone and a set of keys. I never fails. I guess he's waiting on his call to go clean something up.

Well, when we got to Grammy and Pop Pop's, Lori, Scott and Nater Tater were there waiting on us. Nate did much better this time around at tolerating Cash. He didn't cry too much :) On Christmas Day the Moore's arrived and all the hoopla began. Here's my attempt at getting a picture of the kids all together. Check out Colt's face. I think he is thinking......"Here we go again with all the pictures."

Pop Pop and Cash giving Riley a riding lesson on the new bike she got.

This is how we keep Cash contained :)

"Hey, Pop Pop......we found a water leak for you!!!!"

Here are some pics of Cash demonstrating the trait that he got from his momma........his love of eating!!!!!

Here's some fun video of Cash enjoying a few of his new favorite toys. Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas!! We sure did!!

All My Single Ladies....

.....look out!!! Cash is hitting the dance scene and this time he is topless :0 He does his best dancing half naked. He recently submitted this video for consideration to be part of the next "Thunder From Down Under" Tour. We're keeping our fingers crossed ;)

Pay very close attention when he turns around.....I swear he sings a part of the song :)

Well, someone is not Santa's #1 fan.....

....and his name is Cash. Hopefully, this little episode won't put him on the "Naughty List."

Sorry about the poor quality. It's a picture of a picture. Scanners on the fritz :(

Okay, the Halls at the Laird's are Decked!!

Everyone else has shared pics of their decorated trees so I thought I would share mine. I'm a mean kid doesn't get to touch my trees :) Not my main ones anyway. He gets to decorate the tree that goes in his room. We haven't got to that one yet so no pictures to show of it but I'll try to remember to do that in another post. Enjoy!!
The tree in our living room. It's maroon and gold.Tree in our dining room. It's green, red and silver.
A garland swag that I did in the dining room.
The wreath above my make shift mantle. My "mantle" isn't gorgeous like Mandy G.'s so I'm only posting the wreath :)

Thanksgiving, Parades and Decking The Halls.....

.....Oh My!!!!! Well, I've neglected my blog long enough!! Thought I better do my Thanksgiving blog before it was time to do my Christmas one :) This year we spent Thanksgiving with Ed and Sue and we all had a wonderful time. Spence's cousin Erich and his wife Shelley were also there. That was so nice because we don't see them too often. For some reason I didn't take very many pictures and some how a few that I wanted to post got deleted off my camera :( Forgive the poor photo quality and red eyes. If I had to edit photos it might be next week before I got this post up :0

Cash and Poppy Ed washing up the dishes from breakfast. Luckily, the weather was so nice over Thanksgiving, Cash got to do his favorite thing.....Play outside!!
While we were in Woodward we thought we better walk through Crystal Christmas. Cash really enjoyed running around looking at all the pretty lights.
Sliding with Cousin Erich.
On to the second subject of this post.......Parades!!!! As most of you probably know from reading Lacy's blog, we went to Duncan this past weekend so the kiddos could ride on Pop Pop's float. My dad's company sponsored and built a float that was in 3 parades in one day!!! It was such a cute float!! Here are some pictures from Parades 2 and 3. Cash didn't get up in time to make an appearance in the 1st parade of the day that took place in Marlow. My dad called me tonight to let me know that the float took 1st Place in the Marlow Parade!!!! Congrats Dad!!! You worked yourself to death on it so you deserve it!!!
Cash getting in a few practice tosses with the candy. I don't know why.....he was in a horrible mood so he wouldn't even ride the float inthe parade. I had to carry him through the entire parade. And it was the longest parade in the world by the way.
Yeap.....we're wearing Reindeer ears :0
Finally, the last leg of the parade, Cash let me put him in the car with his father.
After a much needed nap for Cash, we headed to Comanche for the 3rd parade.
Yummm....a giant lollipop!
Cash stayed on the float for this parade and he jut kept going in and out of the castle. He loved it!
Looking at the crowd as we drove by.
Miss Riley was a trooper. Much to her parents surprise she rode the float in all 3 parades. As you can see by the end of Parade #3 she was pretty wore out :)
Subject #3 of this post, Decking the Halls, will have to wait till next time. It's late and I'm going to bed :)
