Christmas 2005

What a fun day we had on Sunday! Ian was so much fun this year! Last year he didn't really understand what was going on and this year we are sure he didn't "get" what this was all about but he sure did enjoy opening his gifts! He was very methodical about opening each one and played with each gift after opening them so gift opening took about an hour or more! Tammy's dad was here with us and got a kick out of Ian's "WOW's" with each gift opening. He brought Ian a pair of boots which are a little big but he sure does like to wear them! He loves his wagon and lego's from his Grammy, Grandma, and Popie too! Oh what fun it will be next year with 2!!!!

The Ice Palace

Saturday night we decided to take Ian to see the "Ice!" display in Nashville. This is the most amazing display of 1.5 million pounds of ice that is sculptured into lifesize things. They even had 3 slides made completely of ice. Ian had such a good time going down the slide. About halfway down he got stuck and turned over on his belly and shimmied down. It was very funny. The temperature in the building was 15 degrees so they gave you an extra parka when you go in. We had lots of fun!

Joe and I went to the dr today and got to see the little baby again. He/She was being stubborn and moving away from the doppler heartbeat machine so they had to do an ultrasound. He was fine, just hiding up higher than the dr expected. The baby was kicking and moving around although I could not feel anything. At one point he put his hands near his mouth like he was going to suck his thumb. Dr. Anderson said it was too early for that but he was close. Hopefully we will find out what the little darling is in about 6 weeks.

Christmas Fun

Christmas is such a wonderful time of year, isn't it? It is so much fun this year as Ian is in awe of the lights. He refers to the Christmas tree as "don't touch" or "no touch"! Here are some pictures of his first visit with Santa and our trip to see the Christmas lights down by the river. Ian just looked around for the first 10 minutes at all the lights then cut loose and wanted to go and see how they worked. After he shook a couple displays we decided it was probably time to go! He really like Santa tonight. He pulls some hair out of his beard and said "haair" (he sounds like he's from Rhode Island when he says it!). Santa got a big kick out of it!

The last picture is our little Thug. Joe put his black cap on him and he thought it was so much fun.

Oh, Ian's favorite songs these day's is "If your happy and you know it" and "It's amazing how You love me". He and Joe sing the "It's amazing" song after their prayer every night and Ian can't wait until the clap in the song.

Today at Church when I went to get Ian the teach was laughing because Ian had spent the last 15 minutes organizing the crayons and got very frustrated if someone put a crayon in point down. She asked if he was a little OCD!
