One More Week

Up Up and Away.
Visiting their friend.
Mrs. Claus watched them ride the train too.
Giving Santa his gift. He added their work to his fireplace collection.
They rode in every color car.
All Aboard!
Putting in his letter.
Cooper added his too.
I was teary today during nap when I was thinking that he would only be our "baby" for one more week. I love snuggling with him and cherish those moments. I know he will still be my baby but he will seem so much bigger after Parker comes. I love cuddling and snuggling with my boys.

We are now only one week away from meeting Mr. Parker. I can't believe it is finally so close. It is hard to believe that this time next week we will officially be a family of five. We are all excited to meet our new little one. Baylor wanted to see Santa at the State Museum one more time and ride the train so we went today. We had originally planned to go next week on Monday but then found it was a free day and knew it would be so crowded. We have been so spoiled going after lunch and being there all alone. The boys worked on a few crafts this morning and both made something for Santa again. Baylor even added a cookie to let Santa taste test before he came to our house and added some candy canes to share with the reindeer. They were able to ride the train three times and rode all alone twice. Both boys mailed a letter to Santa in the big red mailbox and Mimi helped them work on it while we were coloring. Santa asked if he would see us again next week, but we told him we were having a BABY! He was so nice to the boys and told them he would be at our house on Friday night. He is coming early so we can have Christmas at our house on Saturday morning before Parker arrives. Mrs. Claus even talked to Baylor all about her baking and the special treats she makes at the North Pole. He loved hearing her stories. They truly are a special pair!
