Another Christmas Remembered

Henry's first bite of a Christmas cookie....and it wasn't his last, he loved them!
Opening up his presents Christmas morning from Santa. I can't even begin to explain how spoiled he was this year (we still have gifts that Mike and I bought him that he hasn't even opened, but we have no room in our little house!). I know his buddy Benjamin got the same pajama's Henry got...."What Santa doesn't bring, Grandma will!" ....that couldn't be more true! Even our baby girl who hasn't even arrived yet was showered with pink outfits and gifts!!!
He looked AMAZING in the outfit we picked out for him when I was in Germany (thanks Aunt Patty and Uncle Gary!!!). He had on tight Euro jeans and a black blazer.....he turned a lot of little girl's heads in church!
"Hmmm, which one of these ornaments do I want to pull off the tree?"
He LOVED playing on the stairs at Grandma and Grandpa's house....he made up for lost time playing on them since we don't have them at home.
Trying to get a family photo was like pulling teeth...he was always on the move with all the excitement and gifts. This was the best we could do.

What a character! I love his little personality....
He was fascinated with the train under the tree at Great Aunt Eil's on Christmas Day...too bad he kept trying to pick it up and knock it off the track!
He was always willing to help Dad put it back! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know we enjoyed spending time with our families and watching Henry get into the spirit. I'm sure next year will be even more fun with him!

Home Sweet Home

Our house is moving along!! We stopped by tonight and met two of the workers (notice one waving for the camera by the garage)....they were quite friendly....Might have something to do with the empty pint of vodka I found laying in our driveway:) Apparently its totally cool to have a nip of liquor on the job...hey, as long as everything is hung straight, why not!
Walking up to the front door.......
We have windows now!
"Hey, get me out of here!"

Henry Meets Santa Claus

We brought Henry to the mall yesterday, stood in a ridiculously long line (well....Mike and Henry did while I shopped!), and finally met the man! Henry took one look at him and started to cry, but as soon as he was on his lap and distracted by the obnoxious mall elves (and his parents), he started to smile:) This was the best photo of the does a great job capturing our little guy trying to wiggle out of Santa's lap. Have a good day!

Winter Wonderland

We have gotten SO MUCH snow on the west side the last few days! We bundled Henry up today and brought him out.....
It turned out he wasn't really excited about the snow (everytime he tried to walk in it he would fall over). Instead, he enjoyed sitting in it eating cheesy poofs watching us play!
Aunt Kate gave him his first taste of snow....and we tried teaching him how to stay away from the yellow stuff!
Henry's First Snowball:)
Check out wonder dog...!
This was his first time standing in the snow....he never left that spot, and when he finally tried, he face planted into it!

Happy Thanksgiving

Sorry its been a while....I realized when I went to write this I have been slacking on taking pictures of Henry! Life has been a little out of control- I was in Germany all last week for work, so Mike and Henry were bachelors. I think they enjoyed the male bonding time! I am SO HAPPY to be back home!
Our new house is really moving along....we went tonight to take a look. It was only 4:30 and already dark, I will remember this next time I go to get pictures, sorry it is a little hard to see it.
Henry loves to be outside, even when it is cold out. Tonight we let him wander a bit and he ended up walking around the whole block...he absolutely refused to stop and even tried to push me back the other way so he could walk by himself. Quite independent!
He loves his chair! He likes to get a snack (here we let him have a whole apple which was comical to watch him eat at the time, and not so funny cleaning up) and sit and watch football with his Dad:) Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

House Update.....

Things are moving along with the house! They have filled in the foundation and will begin framing next week....this is a view from the street. I'm glad they were able to save most of the pine trees!
Here is Mike and Henry going out the soon-to-be back garage door....I can't wait to drive a car into a garage, and not have to scrape windows in the winter anymore!
Mike and Henry standing on the site of our future patio off the kitchen.....
A view from our backyard looking out. This is definitely starting to feel more real, I can't believe we will actually be moving soon....I need to start packing! Well, not quite yet.....

A walk in the park....

Henry loves going down the big blue slide at the park!

Stopping to pose for the camera:)
It's much more fun to push the wagon than ride in it!
He's off.....

We can't believe how beautiful it was this might have been one of our last nice days at the park:(

Best Buds

The dynamic duo, Henry and Bailey....never far from each other. Henry loves to hug him, pull his ears, and feed him, and luckily Bailey seems to be adjusting a little more each day.
A big part of Bailey's new found love for Henry is his snack cup:) Nothing makes Henry laugh harder than throwing goldfish at him.
Someone to lean on.....
Bear hug!!!! :)

Happy Halloween!

All done trick or treating and ready for the State game!
So excited to be out running around the neighborhood....who cares about getting candy, he just wants to wander!
Who let the giraffe out of the zoo?!
One happy little animal.....
Family picture time....where's Henry's face??
