A gift from daddy!

My daddy gave my mommy a great gift for Christmas. He edited my birth video and reduced the 2 hours of raw footage down to a little less than 9 minutes. It made my mommy cry. Now she is after daddy to edit all of the videos he has taken of me the last 17 months.

My Playhouse

Pops & NeNe went in together with my parents to buy me this really fun Playhouse for outside. It has four different sides that represent part of a town. This side is the gas station, tire store and pay phone.

Here I am on the outside looking in to the school room.

This side is the ATM, Market and drive through window.
The front is a school and the back has a soccer goal, basketball goal and hockey points. It is going to be so much fun playing in this.

Christmas Morning

This is what my living room looked like on Christmas morning. Do you see the big red Santa bag with my name on it? Santa left that just for me? It is a bag just like he carries except I think this one came from Pottery Barn. Who knew Santa shopped at Pottery Barn? Mommy loved the bag but daddy thought it made walking into the living room anti-climatic. I guess we will see who wins that battle next year.

They came in to get me Christmas morning and I was wide awake just waiting on them. I didn't have the scared look like last year.
I walked right into the living room and headed towards my bag of gifts. Then, I turned right and headed straight for my Little People Nativity Set. Mommy said that I was just focusing on baby Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas. Daddy said the Pottery Barn bag threw me off.

Gigi and Daddy helped me open the bag and then I discovered my 3 gifts from Santa. I got the coolest things.
The first thing I saw was my Little Tikes slide. It can be used inside or outside. How great is that??
Then I discovered the Busy Ball Popper. What an incredible cool toy that was. I wish you could see how much fun this thing is.
My third gift was a keyboard/microphone/drumset with a stool. It was so much fun and I'm pretty sure I'm a great musician. Maybe I can play the offertory at church one day soon. If you read this, will you ask my daddy or Bro. Joshua to please give me a chance???
Max even got toys. I had fun taunting him with his toys. I took them from him and squeaked them just to get on his nerves. I wonder if that is why he is turning grey?
I got a nice beanbag with my name on it from my mom and dad. I was completely uninterested in it. What were they thinking? Maybe if they gave it to me when I didn't have so many cool toys then I would have been very interested in it. Oh well, it looks like mom enjoyed it.
I entertained my parents and Gigi with a few musical numbers until it was time for Breakfast Casserole.

Christmas Day in Jackson

When GiGi left, we headed to Jackson to have Christmas with my mom's family. Bayleigh, Ceci, Michaela, Allie and Hannah were all there. I'm the only boy on that side of the family so I am a little out numbered. It is okay though because I think they are all a lot of fun!

Sissy helped me eat my lunch. I ate a lot of yummy food.

I opened presents with everyone but was more excited about entertaining everyone than I was about opening gifts. Every now and then, they could convince me to stop and open a gift.
Then, I got very interested in MaMaw's gift bag. I went head first into the thing. That got a lot of laughs.

That is my cousin TJ in the background. He is a pharmacist in Missouri. He turned 30 years old this year and he was the last boy born into my mom's family until I came along. This was my first time to meet him. I think we could be very good friends if we lived closer to each other.

Even Max got a cute new outfit. I don't think he was as fond of it as everyone else was.

Hannah got a Hannah Montana wig and MiMi put it on me. I was SO not impressed with that thing.

P.S. Yes, I am wearing 3 different outfits in this post. I had to change clothes because I kept getting food on me. What do you expect? I am only 17 months old!!!!

Stockings & Stories

I spent a lot of time sitting by the stockings with mommy tonight. She showed me each stocking and who it was for. My stocking had a soccer ball and whistle on it. She tried to teach me how to blow a whistle but I didn't quite figure that out.

I wanted to take the stockings off and give them to everyone but mommy thought it would be best to wait until Christmas morning. The tried to divert my attention by letting GiGi read a book to me. That was good thinking on their part. I completely forgot about the stockings and enjoyed story time with Gigi.

Guess What? I finally have some boy toys around my house. I guess that comes with growing up. Most of the stuffed animals and baby toys have been replaced with cars, cranes, dump trucks and balls.

Max was very interested in the Cozy Coupe. I think he was jealous that he did not get a car. I think you will agree when you see him in all of these pictures.
