Here is the best part. I really wanted to get Asher her first cabbage patch doll. They had newborn ones on sale that were pink and purple. I finally found them and grabbed one. The box was a little bent up so I grabbed another one. When I got home I was so proud and showed Matt. It was then that I realized I had bought a dark skinned cabbage patch doll. It is super cute - just the opposite of my very white skinned baby girl! We decided to name her "Holly Berry" to celebrate multicultural dollies and the Christmas season. Asher will love it.

I know it's not even Thanksgiving, but we figured since we are going to be out of town next weekend we should get it up now. Aidan liked it and kept saying he didn't know how to put ornaments on it. Later he helped us put some on but kept putting two on one branch. Asher was very interested in the tree. Here are some videos of her. Just a little early taste of the season.
This was Asher's first take on the tree. Later with the ornaments on it we had to keep an eye on her. She kept grabbing the ornaments to look at them.
This was Asher later this evening practicing her Santa Claus routine. She has to sneak in, leave the presents, and dash out of there. Notice the piggy slippers that she got from the Shocks for her birthday. She loves them and will actually keep them on.
Here are the elfs next to the tree. Look at them holding hands!
As you can see Asher is waving.

Yesterday in the car on the way home from school we were talking as we usually do every day. I asked him again and he said, "I want to be a dog catcher." I thought maybe he meant a vet or something along those lines so I asked him if he wanted to be a doctor that takes care of sick animals and makes them better and he said, "No mama, I want to be a dog catcher. Can you get me a big cage so I can put the animals in there when I catch them?" I am not sure where he got this idea from. We have never talked about it or saw a "dog catcher" in action catching a doggie....
I love Aidan's one of a kind comments. :)

It seems like we have had one or both of our kiddos sick for the past month or so. They both have been fighting fever, runny noses, and fussiness lately. Grandma even pitched in and watched Asher today so Matt and I didn't have to miss another day of work. We hope Asher will be fever free in the morning and able to go to Miss Claudia's.
On a side note, Aidan's latest kick has been having both Matt and I put him to bed every night. We have to each hold his hand and then when we walk in the room one of us has to go pat Asher's back and the other tuck Aidan in. We have both always tucked him in, but now he is adamant that it has to be at the same time. I also didn't realize what a creature of habit he is. Tonight we put Asher to bed a little early, and since we usually put their jammies on at the same time, Aidan didn't have his on yet. We walked upstairs and I wanted to brush his teeth before books. Well, he told me, "That's not what we always do mama." I quickly realized that he knows our bedtime routine better than I do...

Aidan all ready with his lunchbox and backpack.
Tiff and Aidan walking from the parking lot to the school
This wasn't from the first day, but it is cute to see them in their matching Old Town Texans T-shirts.
