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!
