Christmas Day… and 10 months old!

We are officially in the double digits! Liam is 10 months old today.
Time flies when you're having fun!

This morning, I woke up an hour before Liam (maybe this was a gift to Mommy????) . I came downstairs and saw that Santa stopped at our house! Before waking Daddy and Liam, I made sure to enjoy the little bit of quiet time with a cup of coffee and a little National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Santa was very good to Liam, and he had so much fun opening his gifts, but I think Brendan and I had much more fun watching!
After opening gifts from Santa, Grandpa Thane and Grandma Beth had us over for breakfast, and more gift opening. Liam played for about 6 hours straight… then passed out for a few hours. We couldn't believe how long he kept himself occupied with all the new books and toys from Santa and family!

Yes -  I kept putting the bow on his head… over and over again.

Not sure what this pose is, but it's adorable nonetheless!

Christmas Eve 2009

Christmas Eve was spent at Grandpa Thane and Grandma Beth's house. We had tons of food, and Liam indulged in some holiday favorites like ham, broccoli casserole, green bean casserole, and carrots. Yum!!
Next year, we will plan better and go to church before dinner – we didn't quite make it there on Christmas Eve.
Regardless, we really enjoyed time spent with our family, and Liam passed out cold on the "long" ride home from Grandma & Grandpa's house (for those that don't know, we live 1.5 miles from them).

but the house became VERY hot with all the baking going on!)

What a scholar – December 25, 2009

Yesterday, while I was cleaning up the kitchen, Liam decided he would read his book to me.
I caught him on the "crappy" camera, but it's still a pretty good video.
He "read" to me for about 10 minutes straight. What a nice boy!
