The pre-Christmas part of December

The first Saturday in December, it was time to rake the leaves. We had been waiting for all of the leaves to fall so we could do it all at once. This is Scotty and me sitting in the leaf pile. I was going to stand up, but I was really tired and sat down while Matt ran in to get the camera.The rest are mostly just cute pictures I took of Scott while he was playing with random things in the basement or outside.
Matt thinks it is so awesome that Scott already holds the controller correctly. He puts his thumb on the joystick and everything.
On my birthday, Scott and I went to the mall so I could get some shoes for my outfit for Matt's work Christmas party on Saturday. We also got a hat and some mittens, so when we got home, I had to try them out.
Scott soon realized the trouble with mittens--he couldn't pick anything up and got pretty annoyed.
Matt made some gluten-free pizza for me on my birthday night. He made 4 small pizzas: chicken alfredo, bbq chicken, ham and pineapple, and pepperoni.
A few days later, I was outside with Scott, and he got his first real boo-boo. Do you see the tear under his eye? He was trying to pick up that big stick and lost his balance. He fell right on his face on the pavement. He has a bruise already starting to form on the right side of his forehead. Poor guy. I have to admit, though, when I saw him totally biff it, I did chuckle a bit before he started crying.
Scotty enjoying some M&Ms. The blue one made such a mess--his fingers and lips were stained for a couple of days.
And here's one of Scotty and me, with Monkey. And if you look close, you can see Scotty's molars.
We got to go to Cirque du Soleil on the company dime on Dec 11th. It was awesome. We couldn't take pictures, obviously, but I just have to say that if you ever get the chance to see them, I would go. We were blown away. My favorite act was the foot jugglers. They were incredible. They laid on the backs and spun things with their feet and passed things to each other and even tossed people from one person's feet to another. I can't even count how many times I caught myself with my jaw completely dropped in amazement. I don't think Matt will be leaving this company any time soon--they treat their employees very well!
