December Daily: Day 21

Today was the first time we could get to town as a family to go Christmas shopping. We first went to the mall to get an allergy barrier for our mattress. Doesn't seem like much fun? It was! Uncle Adrian gave us a gift card to Kohl's and since Dave is itching off his face every night we knew it was time to get one. ;) Ethan did so well once I found the jewelry store that was giving away balloons. It saved me today. Red balloon, you are my hero. After a few trips up and down the escalator, we got back in the car and headed to Wal-mart. Dave left us to get stocking stuffers and I took Ethan to look for stuffers for Dad and a present for Dad too. Ethan picked it out and I can't wait until Dave opens it for Christmas!


When we got home, Dave showed Ethan how to cook Shrimp Scampi. It was so sweet. We also bought new batteries since our re-chargeables haven't been working and making my life hard without a flash. So, I tried my best to capture the moment. I think it is beautiful...








I think the second photo is my favorite one of Dave at the moment. It captures Dave perfectly. Doing what he loves...

I was going to do that last year for Christmas, but decided not to. I want to do that real soon though.
