Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year

Since this is the first post-Christmas Blog post, I guess I should start WAAAAAY back at the beginning of our Christmas celebrations - picking out our Christmas tree! We went to the tree farm, and cut down our tree.

The next day, we decorated! I don't have any pictures of the process, but I do have one of our little helper...

While decorating, we had some eggnog. Stephen had never had it before, so I let him have a sip of mine to see if he liked it... it was a shock to everyone, I'm sure, the he did (ha!). He drank almost all of mine, and then his own cup as well.

On Christmas Eve, before we headed out to Church, Stephen opened some of his gifts. He really liked the books he got from his Aunt and Uncle...

... and the book/playset from Cars that he got from his parents. (This picture was taken shortly before he dropped the book on his toes. Stephen didn't nap that day...)

As you can see, he was a little upset (although he was happy about his Backyardigans video game)... Stephen was a little clumsy after not napping, and had fallen a few times.

He still managed to look super cute for Church, though! The shirt/tie/sweater vest combo were a birthday gift from Grandpa Rick.

Stephen opened his gifts from Santa the next morning.

One of his favorite gifts was a camera from his grandpa. He took these pictures of his new train tracks that Santa brought, as well as the Christmas tree, and Granddad John and Grandma Janet.

We had a fun holiday, and a really nice vacation, save for the cold and pink-eye that got passed around our house for 2 weeks.

We had a cold and pink eye that we battled with from the friday after thanksgiving until this week. Seriously the longest cold ever!
