Jacob, Kassie, and baby Jacob/Kassie - just posing by the 'fire.' Yes, that is a blinking tie and Christmas tree earrings...on Jacob!
Burt and Courtney - Courtney looks a little like Jennifer Aniston's current GQ cover photo with Burt's tie draped across her!
Jared and Carla - God only knows what I was doing with my face. Good grief.
Chas and Erin - pulling off the pensive Olan Mills moment. If only I knew how to do a double exposure with another picture of them in a faded oval in the bottom corner!
Jared and Kristin - our wonderful hosts for the evening and resident newly weds among us all...lovingly staring off at the ceiling! Jared pulled off the Feliz Navidad portion of our sweater party!
Courtney learned out to play, or rock out, on Guitar Hero!
A bit more intense!
We all agreed that Chas bore a striking resemblance to a homeless man, especially before he took off the hat! So, this is scary homeless man with Sassy. What a pair!

Jakob hanging the first ornament on the tree. Its a picture of him at his first Christmas.
It took a lot of thought, and eventually, momma hung it for him...under his supervision, of course!
Then, he ate his first candy cane. It was a big hit...especially after he realized that you could suck on it to a point and create a sword! Fabulous.
That is a candy-coated cheese face!
The finished product...yee haw!
That's right, you're gonna get it at every angle!
Fireplace mantle. Okay, I'll stop labeling...you know what this is!
The candy trees
Well...here's to doubting that I will have my home clean and tidy enough over the holiday season to have anyone but immediate family over! So, consider this your inside scoop of the Hardy Holidays...just imagine that its all clean and organized. That's what I do everyday...just close your eyes and dream! Alrighty...

I assured him that he had no reason to be afraid. The cave of wonders would allow the Diamond in the Rough to enter. I tried to have a sweet conversation with Jakob about how he was a diamond in the rough, chosen by God without merit. It was lost on my sweet boy. He looked at me with the most serious face and said, "Mommy...I not a dimund in 'de ruf...I a Jakob in 'de Hardy!"

Sorry for the small pictures, but you know camera phones! Funny Jakob story from his week of vacation. As you can see, my dad doesn't have a lot of hair, and the hair he does have is turning grey. The other night, my mom was trimming my dad's hair when Jakob came into the room. With a very concerned and worried voice, Jakob asked, "Poppy?! Where's your brown hair go?!" After a long laugh, their evening went on. Mom bathed Jakob and asked him afterward if he would like a hair cut like Poppy. (Jakob needs a trim badly!) Jakob grabbed his head with both hands and answered in a panicked tone, "No Nana! I want my brown hair!" SO funny! He thought that he, too, would lose his brown hair if it was cut! Poor Poppy. Getting Jakob to cut his hair may be a lost cause for a while!

So, last week in the Jeep, Jakob and I had a conversation that went a little something like this:
Jakob: Hey, mom? (He never calls me that...so I took notice)
Me: Yeah, buddy?
Jakob: Knock! Knock!
Me: (with a very puzzled look since we have never taught him jokes) Who's there?
Me: (Still with wrinkled eyebrows) Cheetah who?
Jakob: (while cracking up...no...cackling at himself) CHEETAH YATER OW-IGATOR!
He hasn't stopped saying that joke this entire week, and he still thinks its just as funny! Fun times ahead!

Pardon the poor picture quality...web cams aren't known for their pixel count. (Is that even the right verbiage?)

I just love this! Last weekend, Jakob was really fighting a nap, so Daddy fixed it all in the recliner. Daddy was out a long time before Jakob was!
This is my brother, Brandon, and Jared during Red River Rivalry (it will always be the Red River Shootout in my heart!) weekend. We had a great time with Bubba until he got the stomach stuff! We will be gracious Sooner fans, though. We are just hoping for a Big 12 National Champion this year! Maybe Tech will have their chance again the Horns! We'll see! Have a great week!

Uh, oh! He's seeking wisdom from 'Brok-wee!'
Jakob helping Daddy out after the game!
Jakob ran around the field afterward yelling, "Mommy! I a Frenship TIGERRR!"
We needed to have a little conversation about mommy's needing a photo-op! Jakob just doesn't get it sometimes!
My two favorite Tigers on the "Big Bwue Paw"
We weren't even out of the parking lot yet! What a night!
