An incredible year: 2012

Happy New Year's Eve! We've had an amazing 2012 and I still can't believe our little boy has been home for almost 10 months!! We've had an eventful December and I'm happy to report that Henry had a blast on Christmas Day opening all his presents. I don't have time to go into detail but here's a brief summary of our December happenings.

Happy New Year, folks!

We created this photo to be included
with our Christmas card for family
and some friends (who also sent pics
of their kids or pets).

Helping mama sealing Christmas
card envelopes with stickers!
**** ****
Learning to use chopsticks at our fave dim sum spot.
**** ****
He was totally fine until he sat on
Santa's lap (he still reminds us about
his Santa's visit like nothing happened!).
**** ****
One of my favorite pictures when he insisted on
wearing his cool shades for bath time!
**** ****
Sitting in front of the "oven mirror"
to check out his wooly beanie.
**** ****
Waiting for daddy to come home from work to open
another window of the Advent House Calendar (I made
this from an Amazon box; finding the gift surprises
were the most difficult part of the process for me!).
**** ****
Joining Henry at his preschool's Christmas party.
 **** ****
My little artist squeezing in some
creative activity on Christmas Eve.
**** ****
Enjoying the swing with daddy at our
local playground on Christmas Eve.
**** ****
About to open the presents after breakfast
on Christmas Day.
**** ****
Although daddy helped Henry unwrap his gifts,
it still took about 1.5 hours (that's why we ate first!)!
**** ****
Oh my goodness, you've got to buy
"Symphony in B. Orchestra"
by B. Toys! It's currently sitting on
our coffee table and we ALL play
with it every single day! LOVE IT!

Our happy sunshine on Boxing Day!
We saved the small toys in the
stockings to be opened the day after
Christmas Day :).

Oh, how cute! I just LOVE his smile! He is such a happy kid! I'll have to check out that Symphony in B. Orchestra toy! (Although, we have plenty of toys! Some haven't even been played with yet!)
