What to expect on your first Christmas

Hey everybody!  Mommy usually does the writing on here, but today I thought I would.  This past weekend I got to celebrate Christmas!  I've never done that before.  I got to visit Santa at the mall and he brought me toys, but Mommy and Daddy say that Jesus is the reason for the season.  I think he was the baby in the play at church.  I can't wait to learn more about this Jesus!

I thought I should tell y'all about what to expect on your first Christmas from my point of view.  Make sure all the little babies you know read this!

First, there are lots of presents you get.  You should thoroughly enjoy everyone of them.  If Grana and Grandaddy get you a car to ride in, ride in it around their house as long as they will push you.

 When there are bigger cousins around be careful!  They can move fast and aren't always gentle.  But one thing is, they sure are great!  They love to pat me on the head and make me laugh.  I know we'll be best friends!
 When you get to sleep on Christmas Eve, make sure you sleep well.  There is too much excitement during the day to get a good nap.  Sleep as long as you can, even if Mommy & Daddy have to help you wake up the next morning. 
 There will be lots and lots of pictures.  Just sit back and let them have their way.  Once the pictures are over, the fun of opening presents can begin!
 Stick close to Mommy & Daddy, they have links to Santa!  P.S. They are just overall pretty awesome. 
 When Grammy & Pappaw give you snow gear and a sled you should use it!  Bundle up until you can't hardly move and then get out in the snow.  It's lots of fun!
 Daddy can pull you around in the snow and even go down hills.  An infant sled with a seatbelt is a must for enjoying snow sledding on your first Christmas. 

I think that's about all now!  I hope you enjoyed your Christmas as much as I did.  I guess I'll have to let Mommy take back over.

Christmas Decorations

Here is our home decorated for Christmas! This is our red, black and white tree in our dining room.

This buffet is next to it and I continued the same color scheme.

This is V's tree in his room. It was his dad's and Grana let me bring it home. It has ornaments that cover the lights. They are Candy Land figurines. I want to add more to it as the years go.

Our family tree is in our living room. It holds our sentimental ornaments. I love it! It's white with colorful ornaments - very whimsical.

Here is our makeshift mantel. This bookcase usually sits where the tree is. I scooted it down and decided to put our stockings on it.

Finally, here are two ornaments we had to add this year for V man.

I'll be adding some of our smaller decorations later including our bookcases that flank the TV and our collection of UK Christmas snowmen, etc.

Thanks for stopping by!

Walking at Church

Today after Vince's nap we loaded up and went to walk in our church's gym. It's so nice to have a warm spot. I brought lots of toys for V to play with. He has started really yanking on his toys... Or Mommy's hair whichever is closer!

Here he is loaded in the stroller!

25 Weeks Later

These are pictures of my baby boy the day he was born and 25 weeks later. He is in the same gown and receiving blanket. He is so precious in both! I can't believe how much he has changed!

Oh, Christmas Tree!

Here's a quick photo shoot of Vince with our family Christmas tree.
Checking out the ribbon on this nearby package he grabbed!
So glad the bumbo helps him sit up safely.

He doesn't suck his thumb habitually, but he was really liking it right here!
