Decorating for Christmas

So we were concerned about having a Christmas tree with a little man who is learning to walk. He's cruising on everything now, and loves to pull up and lean on furniture. I could just imagine the crash and cry when the tree toppled over on him. So my friend, Lindsay, suggested putting the Christmas tree in the pack-n-play. So here it is... :)

Keeps baby out of the wires, tinsel, and balls, and lets big brother enjoy the tree.

We all had a great FHE setting up the Christmas tree, and listening to Johnny Mathis Christmas music. I'll never forget the Christmas we put the tree in the manger!

Baby's First Birthday

It was our baby boy's first birthday, and we were all sick. So we had a little cake at home...
Whose birthday is it? Mine!!
Seriously, Dad. You're giving me a candle. Are you sure?

It looks so fun.

Can I touch it?
Bummer. No more candle, but this cake looks interesting...I'll just poke it.
I wonder what Dad will do if I put some in my mouth...

Wait! I'm eating this, and no one is taking it out of my mouth.
Here Mom! Do you want a lick? It's chocolate!
Great cake, Dad! Thanks for the great birthday! And look, I'm still handsome even when my face is covered in frosting!
