We had so much fun over Christmas - and still are! We started things a bit early by heading over to Alan's moms house to exchange gifts and spend some much needed time with her! Stephen got a firetruck, dump truck, and some elmo video's (I think grandma knew what she was doing!) He loved it all (you'll actually see a photo in the link on the right of him sitting in his dump truck the next day waiting for a ride!)

Then Christmas eve we headed to my parents house where the entire gang was there - my brother and sister-in-law, my sister, my grandmother, and of course my parents. It was a ball. After Mass Alan started building the train table! My brother helped out a bit and before long it was up and ready! Good thing b/c Christmas morning Stephen was so surprised and so happy. He started playing on it at 7am and only stopped at noon b/c I made him take a nap. He woke up and went right back to it. The only way we could feed him breakfast is by me bringing muffins to him - LOL silly goose!
After a wonderful Christmas day we headed down to the beach for a much needed and relaxing vacation. Stephen is still swimming his heart out and running on the beach..... actually he was taking a nap and I can hear him calling me, so I must go.
Merry Christmas and we love you all! Check out the link on the right for more fun photos!

Pre - Christmas outings

This weekend has been a blast! Alan started his two week vacation and we embraced it! First we headed off to Bellingrath Gardens for the amazing display of Christmas Lights!! Then we went with Mimi and Poppi for a fun train ride in the middle of the country! Here Stephen is dancing while waiting to get back on the train (the train took us to the "north pole" where all the kids got their picture with santa then got a toy choo choo train and decorated it! Then after the ride everyone got a cookie and some coco while the kids played on train tables; it was really neat. Stephen loves choo choo's and talked about it all day today!

Just a fun picture of Stephen building with his blocks.

He's so cute!!!!

Isn't he so cute and getting so big!!! I can't believe how amazing he is!! Stephen gave me the biggest smile yesterday when I asked, it was the cutest thing in the world! Oh, please ignore the pink tile and blue carpet, for those of our bloggers who haven't seen our home - we have blue carpet and pink tile, but a huge pile of hardwood in the office ready to go down when that project's turn is up! :)

Here's a pic of me for all those who've asked. Not the greatest, but I'm most certainly pregnant! About 27 weeks now, I can't believe it!!!

Thanksgiving with family!!! Stephen loves cousins!

This Thanksgiving we headed over to Alan's moms house for some great cooking and much needed time with family! Stephen got to play with his cousins Katherine and Taylor and his Aunt and Uncle, and of course his grandmother!! He had a blast and loved all the attention he got!

After thanksgiving and watching a horrible Egg bowl we headed over to my parents house where my cousins and Stephen's godparent's were visiting.
