Christmas morning was fun with Ethan. Santa brought him all kinds of goodies and this was his big gift which we now cannot get him out of. He sits in it to watch tv, to drink his juice, and just to have a seat sometimes. He didn't really get into the gift opening, but once you tore the paper off his face would light up and he'd go "oohhh". So cute! We had a big time putting together his gifts at my parents' and we've been playing hard with all of it ever since.
ethan was less than thrilled to be woken early from his nap to get strapped into his car seat...he didn't care that we were taking him to get toys!
As is tradition, we spent Christmas eve in Plumerville with Brandon's family. Ethan still doesn't get into the opening of gifts, but he wants to play with them IMMEDIATELY. So we had a good time ripping things out of boxes before I even had a chance to register who gave him what. Lots of fun though to see him running around with all the cousins having a big time.
These last few weeks have FLOWN by, it's hard to believe Christmas has already come and gone. Ethan was not very cooperative for a cute Christmas picture because he was scared pf the Christmas tree, so I had to trick him by putting him in his firetruck near the tree. But he was full of it that night and wouldn't be still.....so we took what we could get. Don't worry though, the fear of the tree didn't last....we've spent the last week no-noing him for shaking the branches. Good thing I chose not to decorate the bottom half just in case!

Look what daddy got just in time for the end of deer season and before he gets to go duck hunting. Just what every man needs! He was so excited to come home and show Ethan. Luckily we got these pictures before the engine was cranked up b/c after that, he wanted nothing to do with it! I know they'll have plenty of time on it for years to come.
Better late than never I guess....since it's been long enough that my husband is worried about my lack of blogging. We didn't take many pictures of Thanksgiving this year, but we did get some of Ethan playing out at Uncle David and Aunt Cindy's house in Plumerville. He played with his Papaw Terry outside for a LONG time....on the playset, and then driving his car and adjusting every setting. Thanks Papaw for entertaining me!
