Merry Christmas!

Aaron has had such a great month of Christmas preparation. We had a fun morning of opening presents and assembling the new toys. Aaron and mom are a bit under the weather so the visiting and excitement were a bit more subdued than would have otherwise been. We still had a nice time and will continue to enjoy the holiday for at least another week.

Prepping for Christmas

Aaron is so excited about Christmas this year. We have been participating in as many holiday oriented events as possible. Aaron’s preschool Christmas party was also this week with singing and gymnastics.

Thanks Uncle Franny, first present mom let him unwrap this year.

Look out folks, I let him help wrap this year. He is truely an expert with the tape!

We helped decorate Gram’s tree and she surprised him with a Polar Express train underneath. Didn’t think I’d get him home again.

This is how you know Aaron doesn’t feel good. Notice not moving or talking. Long night!

Thanksgiving/Christmas Tree

Happy Thanksgiving! We had a great holiday with our family, locally this year since mom is not too keen to go on any long car rides with baby girl getting big in her belly. Aaron helped make the apple pie and didn’t complain about the smell of fruit while doing so.

Since Aaron has been so excited about Christmas already, we decided to put up the tree yesterday. Certainly 2 weeks earlier than usual at least for us. He had a great time caroling and helping every step of the way. He provided the “party spirit” and hung lots of ornaments on the same low branches. It’s a very colorful number this year. We love it!

Happy Halloween!

We’ve had a fun with several Halloween events in the last week. Aaron made a great Peter Pan, even crowing like the character during his school Halloween performance (instead of singing).

Peter Pan was ready for “Trick or Treasure”

Now if he could just pick it up, maybe mom would let him take it home.

Grandpa was a trooper, riding all the slides with Aaron at the pumpkin patch. I think this was his favorite.
