Christmas Day '08

Cutter's 1st Christmas was amazing! He was such a good boy this year, so Santa brought him lots of fun toys! Our morning started out early, Cutter had us up at 7 am! Not bad, it could have been earlier.
Checking out his stocking full of goodies that Santa left him. He was excited about the pez candy, even though he can't eat them yet!
Santa left Cutter a BIG basketball hoop! It might be a few months before Cutter is playing with this, but Santa had the future in mind.

After we opened gifts from Santa and Mom & Dad, GG made us all a homemade breakfast. Eggs, bacon, and biscuits and gravy. was sooo good. What a great start to our 1st Christmas as a family.
After Christmas breakfast we sat the kiddos in front of the tree for a first of many cherished Christmas photos. All in all, our 1st Christmas together was GREAT!

Happy Birthday to My Little Monkey!!

I can't believe that my little monkey is ONE! Where has the time gone? We have a very busy day planned today, but I do have plans for a 12 month update - so stay tuned!

We went and had Cutter's official Christmas and Birthday pictures taken! I guess since both fall at the same time, I am going to have to make an effort to go around June/July to get some taken. He has changed so much since his 6 month pictures. I had such a hard time picking out the photos, he is such a little doll and was in full cooperation mode. Here are the best ones, and yes it was hard to decide which ones to get, but I did my best. ENJOY!!

Spaghetti with Santa!

We went to see Santa and have spaghetti with him, unfortunately you weren't allowed to take pictures as they had professional photogs there. I will have to wait til they send those to me. Until then here are some from that night before we went.

This is how my kids rolls!

Yeah, I said it - this is how my kid likes to roll. I am not quite sure where he got this quirkiness from but this isn't the first time he has done it and gotten aggrivated at it! What is "it", you ask?? Well see for yourself....

Cutter walking!

I got some video of Cutter walking! Sorry that it is going the wrong direction! I know better next time! I will try and get some better video. This one was shot 3 days ago and he has gotten so much better and going longer distances! Oh wow, now I have my hands full!!

Yesterday we took Cutter to see Rudy and the Kansas City Southern Railway Holiday Express. We waited in line for about 45 minutes! It was well worth the wait!

Seasons Greetings!

While waiting outside in the chilly weather, we had Cutter all bundled up! He looked so cute in his beanie and new jacket!
The elves stopped by to see all the excited children, one stopped to get a photo with Cutter! The elves are all volunteers and live on the train for the month that the train is on tour. They help set up in each new city they stop at.

Before we jumped on the Kansas City Holiday Express we stopped for a family photo! We were super excited to get into some warm tempatures!
Cutter would NOT sit on Santa's lap, so Greg had to stand with him next to Santa. Look closely and you can see that Cutter is holding on to Daddy for dear life! O'well maybe next time!
On the way out of the last train car, we were met with this sign to let us know that our tour was over! Well worth the wait!! Hopefully they will come back every year, we enjoyed seeing the toy trains that they had set up inside the cars, but we especially enjoyed seeing Santa!

Giving Thanks!

Well somehow my original Giving Thanks post wasn't there when I posted it! ERRRR..

So here is the short version, when I get more time, I will update more with pictures!

Short Story: Cutter slept through an amazing Thanksgiving Dinner! Then we went outside to get some photos of the kiddos. It went ok, most of the time Emilee and Abbey were walking away from a crawling Cutter!And the super CUTE photo of my little man!! He is just so gorgeous! I love him so much!


Today Cutter decided to entertain us with the idea that he may be waddling around the house by Christmas. He took about 5-7 steps in between Greg and I on his own. Was my camera near by to capture the spectacular moment? NO! I wasn't expecting it, so it was even close to me. Maybe I will be able to get some photos of the little man on the move tomorrow!
