Wow, she looks a lot bigger once you get her in the house. Thank goodness for peaked ceilings. I absolutely LOVE a big tree like this. We even had to wire it to the wall to help support it
Here's Mama and Jared enjoying some fun time under the tree. Good thing those needles are soft
And our little speedster. We turn our back for a second and he scrambles five steps up the ladder
Here's a shot all decorated with the pretty angel on top. Of course, for obvious reasons, we didn't put any ornaments below three feet
Hey Daddy, what's in this drawer? Bah, you put one of those latches on it. Yeah, I think I can get my hand in there anyway
Mama and her favorite baby boy having a tickle fight
Here's a shot of our other babies enjoying the tree. Tequila spent most of her nights sleeping under it, while Kahlua loved eating (and puking) the needles. Yay
Jared playing with some toast up at Aunt Debbie & Uncle Chuck's place in Lansing where we celebrated an early Christmas with them
And here are the three cousins, ready to stir up some trouble
Oooo, presents! Jared was pretty good at unwrapping, surprise surprise
Any more presents for me?
Cousins Samantha and Ethan opening their gifts
Cool, a train engineer Pooh bear!
Here's Uncle Chuck having some fun with the big boy
And here's a really cool gift for Jared, which he'll enjoy once we open it back home. Right now he's looking for more presents
And here we are back home, basking in the glow of Christmas morning, with Jared's really cool tricycle in the front. Unfortunately the boy needs to grow a couple more inches before he can use it
More presents! This Pooh bear you can hook up to your computer to program, then it'll actually use Jared's name in sentences and stuff. It's pretty neat
Jared loves to open presents and tear the paper to pieces in the process
Even more paper
Mama giving the boy his next gift
Jared loves puzzles of all kinds. Of course, they are kinda hard to use with the plastic still on
Tequila sneaking under the tree to watch the festivities from a safe distance
This is a cool wind-up flashlight that doesn't need batteries to run
Oooo, what's this?
Hey, a magna-doodle, I love these
Jared grabbing onto one of Mama's gifts. No son, that's not for you
There's another present for you!
Wow, a discover sounds kitchen. Very cool. Daddy, set it up now!
Mama enjoying her comfortable new rocking chair from Daddy and Jared
He's a little too small for the trike, but he can still try on his helmet
Jared obviously losing his mind from all the excitement. Well, that's it for this year. Next year will be even cooler once Jared really understands what's going on with Santa and all that. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
