We are really enjoying this holiday season! I am finally feeling better and starting to get excited about this new baby. We are working on Will taking just one nap a day instead of two and Corey is busy decorating Will's big-boy room he is getting for Christmas.
Will has learned how to climb the ladder. We looked over and he was already up 2 steps!! You may be noticing our tree looks a little odd. We usually cut one down from a Christmas tree farm but this year we had them dig one up for us that we can plant in our back yard after Christmas. It has been an adventure figuring out how to cover it and keep it watered!
Corey let him go to the top of the ladder to help decorate the tree.
It's official, no more squeezing into my normal pants. The doctor said that I had a growth spurt this month! I would have to agree!
We forgot to put the angel on the tree the day we decorated so we had to do it later.
We were trying to get a cute Christmas picture with Will's little tree that has his ornaments on it. He kept pulling them off. His favorite is his pacy ornament from last year. It is his first pacy that I wrote the year on.
He loves the the song Up On The Housetop. We were singing it for him while he danced and said "Ho, Ho, Ho".

This past weekend Corey's mom's side of the family got together to celebrate Granddaddy & Granny's 70th birthdays. They are both such precious people that love all of their kids, grandkids and great-grandkids so much. Anytime that you are visiting there house you are guaranteed to not be alone. It is a house filled with joy and laughter from the children that pass through on any given day.
Holidays are a lot of fun there for many reasons. One is because Corey's Uncle Benny is a children's minister and enjoys doing clown shows on the side. He always has some kind of funny show prepared for us at Christmas that usually includes a costume, possibly animals and maybe even a guitar. It is always so funny! And if you can image there are 9 "little kids" running around sneaking cookies, opening presents and taking turns sitting with Granny. It is a day that we all look forward to every year.
Here are a few pictures of the family this past Saturday. They love to play outside at Granny's because there are so many toys it is like being at a park. I was sad that I could not be there this time because of lingering morning sickness but I am looking forward to trying to make the trip in a few weeks for Christmas. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
Got static!! I had to add this picture. Will loved jumping on the trampoline.
