Okay, okay, I know I've been a slacker at getting these Christmas pics up it's been busy but honestly I don't have a great excuse just hadn't gotten around to it, but I figured since my sweet friend Celeste dropped the hint that I was behind schedule and tomorrow is New Year's Eve I better get with it. I have a few pics I want to make some notes about and then I'll finish the post with a whole mess of random photos from the holidays. We had a wonderful time but are looking forward to hosting Christmas for all our families next year in our new home! Oh and this post wouldn't be complete without letting everybody know the best part of this years Christmas, we found out my brother Ross and his wife Thea are having a BOY! Yeah Deals will have a boy cousin to play in the dirt with, we're so excited!


Mimi (Matt's mom) gave Deals his first Christmas ornament and it was too cute. How appropriate it was an orange m&m....hee...

I don't know if you can tell but this cute little fleece suit is about to fly off D's body, it was so tight, I bought it last Christmas trying to guess his size and I was WAY OFF...he was busting at the seems, but hey who doesn't love fleece spandex!

This present was the best my sweet Gma knitted this sweater for D she's in her late 80's and was so proud to have made this for him...doesn't it look sweet with his blue eyes...

This picture depresses me even now...Yes you are seeing correctly it was 60 FREAKING degrees on Christmas day....ahh isn't Texas wonderful...sigh...

Here's more pics from the holidays lots of D opening presents, he LOVED the paper, bows & ribbon! Next year he'll love the boxes too!

He is growing up so fast!! I absolutely love the picture of him eating the bow. You need to frame that one or try to put it inside a Christmas ornament-- the kind where you stick stuff in it for display.
