Christmas Day

Henry was quite excited on Christmas morning. So excited we really didn't have a chance to comb our hair. We first opened our stockings and Henry's contained many a go-go. Then on to the presents under the tree. Henry loved all his presents and was very reluctant to take a nap and then leave them when we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for dinner. His big present from Mom and Dad was a piano from which we have been treated to many concerts already. Grandpa Gordon gave Henry the cool choo choo train.

Dinner was excellent and included a very good turkey some excellent stuffing. We had quite a full house with me, Colleen, Henry, Jim, Joan, Jenny, Fritz, Mary, Billy, James, Kate, Katie, Brian, Olivia, Christian, Gertrude, Uncle Mike, Barbara, Melissa and Veronica.

Run In with Santa

We somehow organized it so all the cousins could meet downtown before everyones nap and visit Santa. We had been preparing Henry for this for quite a while and he eventually said that yes he would like to see Santa but, he would not sit on Santa's lap, James would sit on his lap and Henry would stand next to Santa. All went well standing in line Henry was still pretty excited about seeing Santa. Our turn came and Henry walked around Santa very slowly. He let the cousins start to get there places on Santa's lap and then Santa gave Henry the evil eye captured in this picture. After that it was all down hill. Once he realized they would be taking pictures it was over. Total meltdown. He recovered quick but defenitly does not want to see Santa again for at least another year.

Soccer Movie

We were making movies in the backyard this weekend and Henry came up with his own line. Not sure where this came from but it is pretty funny.
