Oh, what fun it is to... Solo tear up the wrapping paper! presents with Daddy! with the blocks Grandpa made for me!

...compete with Solo for Grandma's attention!
(If you look closely at that last picture, you can see that Solo's smiling.)

Christmas was lots of fun this year!  We enjoyed the time we got to spend with our families, and Nathan Garrett got some really cool toys to play with.

Thanks, Ryan & Chesli!
We're looking forward to a lot more fun in 2012.  Stay tuned!

Signs Your Home Is Occupied By A Toddler

Yes, I realize it'll get much messier.
Who knew how much fun toilet paper could be?!
No, Solo doesn't climb onto the kitchen counter to get to his food & water.

Garrett Meets Santa!

For the past few Tuesdays, I've been taking Garrett to Allerton Library here in Monticello for Baby Lap Time (BLT!...Cool!).  Today, BLT was replaced with a visit from Santa!!!  How nice of him to take a few minutes out of his busy December schedule to come see a few children in our little town!

First, he told a story about playing Hide & Seek with the elves at The North Pole.  One elf, Moe, had hidden so well that Santa and the others had a hard time finding him.  Then, Santa passed out candy canes and invited the children to take turns sitting on his lap.  I wasn't sure how Garrett would react.

Not sure...
That's my boy!  (Yes, that's a happy expression.)

Now I can't wait to see Garrett's eyes light up when we finally decorate our Christmas tree this weekend!
