Christmas Eve Family Pictures..

So Christmas is over, but we have Isaiah's birthday tomorrow.. which we don't even know what we are going to do for it.. Any ideas? It is crazy to think that next Christmas we will have a 9 month old baby girl... Ahhh!

A family night of Christmas decorating... crazy Martin's..

Operation binky....

Has been a success!! YEA. It has been over a week now that the binky went missing and he is sleeping really well again. I am so proud of him. He really is an easy child to make changes with. He loves his Lightning McQueen pillow that has Mater on the back of it. I catch myself going in to his room after he has been asleep and laying with him..
I'm almost finished with Christmas.. I feel like we had no budget this year and it was all chaotic the way we just bought whenever but it doesn't help when your son's birthday is a few days later.. so yes I automatically feel like we spoiled him. I guess it is okay to do that since this is the last year he will be alone for this holiday. Now he will have at least one sibling to share it with.
We have decided on a different name for our baby girl (we call her baby bunny). I don't want to disclose it yet since it isn't set in stone but we are thrilled about it and feel it fits her well (and we haven't even seen her yet)!
We went to the Premier of Tears of a King last night. It is the LDS movie they did about Elvis reading the Book of Mormon. It was fun to go and see some of the Osmond's there and the producers and stars of the show, however the show itself wasn't great. I wish it was but honestly, I can't lie! I was proud of my sisters and their song at the end.. now that was the best part:)

No more binky!

Yes I am guilty.. Isaiah has still had his binky. I had potty trained him, taken away his home, his crib, etc... So I never felt good about taking his huge security to sleep.. however it has been something on my mind every single day for months. I finally just knew I had to do it.. it literally broke my heart. This is something he has had since the day he was born that he loved and adored.. It has been one of the hardest things I've ever done with him. He has yet to go to sleep or stay asleep for 3 nights. What a challenge. I feel like I am teaching him to learn to sleep through the night again. When he cries for it in the night, you can see in his eyes that he is so sincere in needing it. Hopefully tonight will be a better night. Today I let him pick out a pillow at the store that he would love to sleep with when he was sad about his binky.. he chose a Lightning McQueen pillow.. Cross your fingers!

Santa "Tause"

I said I would post a picture of Isaiah sitting on Isaiah's lap.. here it is... I hope everyone is doing well during this holiday season!!

World's Smallest House.. ha

I thought I should post this because it gave me a good laugh.. My sister was having a really bad day and not in the smiling mood and we were driving to get some food by my house and I glanced at this smallest house I've ever seen. I am sure there is smaller homes than this but this just shocked me because in all the years I have lived in this area, I have never seen this house. It was so cute and shocking, that we both busted up laughing.. there is no way a normal sized person could fit in the back door that we saw! It was nice that it helped my sister smile for at least a few minutes that day...

O Christmas Tree

So our internet is now up and going (we found the modem finally) and we are still getting settled in our new home. I love it here. I am still going through boxes daily but it is getting better and better. Last night we decided we better put up our tree and as we went to do that we couldn't find our box of ornaments! So we went out and bought some more and changed our tree this year. Here is a picture of it...

I love it because it isn't as traditional as we usually do it, so it is a nice change. Isaiah had a blast getting out the decorations last night. I have never seen a kid so full of the Christmas spirit. He sang Christmas songs the whole time (even if he didn't know the words).
I will update you guys more soon..
