Today Was a Busy Day

Tristan and I were able to spend two full days together this weekend.  Adam worked overnights so while he was sleeping downstairs we played with new Christmas toys and ate snacks.  

Feeding Apple from the high chair is one of Tristan's favorite hobbies. 

They are becoming best friends...

Climbing in and out of the toy basket is also lots of fun!

Finally time to take a nap.  We were both tired.

Winter Walk

It was snowing (lots) and warm out ---and I wanted to take pictures!  Here are a few...

My boys.

Christmas Cards

Our 2012 Christmas card photo - I love his blue eyes, the snow and how he is looking up at me.

A Picture Perfect Christmas...Probably Not

I setup my Christmas tree early this year so I would have plenty of time to take lots of pictures with Tristan around the tree.  I bought him Christmas pajamas and a little rocking chair - I had a mind full of visions which included beautiful, holiday photos.  Things do not always work the way you plan.

Tristan had the bottom half of the tree completely undecorated the same day I put it up and the ornaments were packed away the next day because I was tired of picking them up.  The garland was even unwound from the tree as high as he could reach.

I did get a couple of photos of him in front of the tree but these were practice shots as I was getting ready for another photo session and wanted to make sure my settings were correct.  Of course he was wearing an obnoxiously colored orange shirt, so I decided to turn them to black and white.

My partially undecorated tree.

Sometimes or most of the time he is on-the-go and photos often get blurry.

Lexie and Tristan

Do you believe we were actually able to get Lexie and Tristan to sit still long enough to take a couple of pictures?  Here they are as proof!

Lexie and Santa

Andy and Kelly came to visit us in early December.  We went to Bentleyville to see the lights and stood in a long, long line of other children and parents all wanting to meet Santa!

Here it was finally Lexie's turn:

New Boots

Tristan got a new pair of boots and he certainly loves to wear them.  I think he knows that when it is time to wear boots there is fun to be had.

Lots of High-Chair Pics..........

I think it happens and not by accident that I have lots of high chair photos.  It really is the only place Tristan sits still long enough for an in focus photo.

Fun in the Snow

Here's Dominick learning how to snowboard!!

And here is Tristan on his new sled!!

Opening Presents with Grandma...

.......and decorating the Christmas tree.

(a little side note...........after our tree was decorated, Tristan had completely un-decorated the bottom half of the tree - as high as he could reach - in a matter of hours.  I picked the ornaments up for awhile, but after a few days, I packed them up and put them away.  So, our tree was only decorated on the top half for the rest of the season)

Asleep at the Table

My mom, dad, Dakota and Dominick visited the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was a busy day full of cooking and playing outside in the snow.  Our little Tristan was completely wore out and fell asleep eating his Thanksgiving dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving.  Tristan just woke up.

Eating some breakfast.

Playing outside while it was still nice out.
Then we left for Auntie Mary's house.
