I know, it's been over a week. But Andy and I both took this week off from work and we've been enjoying being extra lazy. Lounging in our PJ's until noon, not caring that the house needs tidied. So, blogging has seemed like work and I haven't wanted to do it. With that disclaimer, I'll post some pics from Christmas. Excuse the 82,000 photos, but we had a lot going on. We had 15 people for Christmas morning and 2 more joined us the next day. Henry was a blast. It brought us so much joy just to watch him run around in excitement and gasp (literally) at all the fun that the day brought. (By the way, I have no idea why my text is a hyperlink, and I have no idea how to make it not do that...)Coming down the stairs in our new PJ's like a big boy. (Where did my baby go???)

So excited to see all the brightly wrapped gifts.

Checking out the stocking pile.

Opening a present with Daddy.

Nelle being oh so photogenic.

Tess and Nelle and a tortured looking Henry.

Ah, the piece de resistance......a ride on ATV. That plays the world's MOST ANNOYING SONG, which of course Henry LOVES and plays in rapid succession all. day. long.

Eating a gummy worm from Daddy's stocking.

Our new toy train from Grandpa Rod.

Helping Mama mix the eggs. Until I looked away and he threw the whisk...and I had raw egg all over my kitchen floor.
Playing with Unci Dunci.

The next day, Grandma and Grandpa Aronson came and we got to open our new giant bouncy horse! (Which puts last year's bouncy zebra in the background to shame!...Both from grandma!)

It's still a little big for him, but I have a feeling that won't matter very much considering he's trying to climb up on it as I type this.

Merry (belated) Christmas everyone!!!

So fun! Had to laugh about the whisk. It's like they plan these little foibles, don't they? What a handsome little guy.
