Christmas 2011

Last christmas G was 5 months old.  FIVE.  Tiny.  He sat up for a surprisingly long time playing a keyboard from 1987 and wore a bow because we found out Courtney was having a girl.  He also couldn't take things off of his head.  the child wears NOTHING on his head.  Ass.

We had a pretty fab Christmas spent with family and friends, and friends of friends.  We spent Friday night with our BFF's and their little girl (G's future wife.  My future daughter in law to whom I promise I will NOT be crazy.  Wait, I promise I will be only fun crazy.)  She taught G how to say "mine," and they gave one another lots of kisses, and wanted to share nothing.  We had an amazing time.  Ah-ma-zing.  Then we had fun with Ben's fam.  g racked up on the gifts--an awesome tent--played in this today, I MUST upload pics.  They are adorbs., a book of places we need to go, a bear that talks, TALKS I tell you, money from his great grandmother, and an outdoor playscape.  Awesometown.  I'm not going to lie, we also got the hookup.  And we ate well so I'm not sure what is NOT to like about that... other than a toddler who doesn't want to be contained and had reached his limits by about 6 pm.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh presents.  That I can rip the paper off of and then obsess about putting in the trash vs. actually playing with it.  YES.


The process of sharing.

Don't let her fool you.  She clearly loves him.

Being cute.
We went to my parents on Sat.  Went to church on Sun.  Had gift opening at their house after the kids napped.  We were again blessed with LOTS of presents.  Including a personalized Sandra Boynton book for G$, a ball popper, blocks, instruments, books, cars, I could go on and on.  I got an adorable apron, Ben got $ to the homebrew supply store, we enjoyed giving, we ate bacon, we ate lots of other food, we drank, we played a super fun game, and we laughed and laughed and some of us "eyes shifting to the Dr" took tequila shots with my Uncle.  (My uncle who likes to challenge ben, and my husband who can't refuse a challenge.)  It was a great holiday.  We love being wiht family and can't wait to move closer... which isn't happening any time soon.  Sigh.

Until then, we'll keep coming to visit.  Bringing all our stuff, our 2 dogs and our 1 child.  Pardon the fact that there are not currently any pics of the niece and nephew.... I didn't look great in mine and I'm so shallow that I'm not posting them. More to come!

I'm biased... but I find him to be extremely cute as well :) He sends kisses to Fla.
