Oh Christmas D, Oh Christmas D!

I did it again! I forced Dawson to sit through at least 20 minutes of photo manipulation. All in the name of Christmas. Last year, Jason was there to help, and actually he took the photos. This year, Jason wasn't home but Gloria was with us so she came up with all kinds of shenanigans to encourage Dawson to look at the camera.
Toward the end of the photo taking process, I did resort to bribery...
 Before she left, Gloria ordered a train activity table for Dawson. It came a week later and when it arrived Dawson played and played -he loves it.
 That being said, after he played a while, Jason and I wanted to go to the Y to workout. I have noticed lately that each month my pants keep shrinking in the dryer so my butt doesn't quite fit in them. I tried sticking my butt in the dryer to see if it would have the same effect as on my jeans.. it doesn't. Save yourself some time. We grabbed Dawson to get his coat on and immediately he acted like a rejected spoiled kid in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. Screaming and crying and carrying on. So we got him in the car and gave him a snack. Silence in a bag I tell you. If your child ever gets an activity table and you need to go to the gym to shrink your butt, give your kid a snack. The end.
