Tis the Season

We've celebrated many Christmases.  This was one of our favorites!!  Aaron was so much more involved in everything this year.  He helped to decorate the house, hang the ornaments, and even put presents under the Christmas tree.  Daddy showed Aaron one of his favorite things to do before the tree got full of presents.  When Daddy was a kid, he would crawl under the empty tree and look up at all the twinkling lights. 

Aaron's favorite part of Christmas day was the unwrapping.  Only he called it wrapping.  So, here he is "wrapping" a couple of gifts.

He was very meticulous about handing us each scrap of paper to put in the trash.  No mess to clean up when he was done!


This was one of Aaron's stocking stuffers.  He really likes Thomas and Friends.  He would use stickers of Harvey that his Gigi (Betsy's Mom) sent to help his toy trains to get back onto their track.  Now he has a real Harvey the crane to do the job! 


This was truly a memorable Christmas.  We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Jack got Harvey for Christmas too, and his expression was almost identical! 3 is such a fun age...

We missed you all, and wish you could have been here... although if you were here, you would have had to sit on someone or be sat uponst- it was Ca-row-ded!

This was our favorite Christmas too!!! Totally has to do with the age. I know it will get more fun, but I also know that the fun little way they say stuff will go away. Maddie liked to help wrap the presents, and every time she was sent to put one under the tree she'd say, "i'm soooo excited!" with this little jittery voice ;) Too much good stuff. Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year. Our Christmas was full of lots and lots of snow. Do you guys miss it? I read that in Dubai they have an indoor ski slope! Think that will come to Singapore? I think Dubai might be a richer nation though.

I love all the new pictures. Thanks! Wish we were closer and could share the fun moments.

And I also love the new family pic you put on your blog. I'd like to copy it in a larger format. Possible?
