Fischer's First Christmas

We had a great and very crazy Christmas this year with Fischer. It was a wonderful time to spend with family and friends. But foremost it was a great time to sit down and thank God for sending his Son to be born to live here on this Earth.

Here's a quick run down of our Christmas adventure this year!

We started the Christmas season by lighting the Advent candles on the 4th Sunday in Advent in front of our church. What a special time it was to do as a new family and acknowledge Christ as we celebrated His PEACE on that Advent sunday.
This is Gma & Grand-dad (Alison's parents) with Fischer in front of the Christmas tree at church!
This is Grammy & Papa (Blake's parents) with Fischer after the Christmas Eve service at church. Fischer was so good during the service, it was right in the middle of his nap and then time to eat. He really enjoyed all the songs and lights to look at. He's a Robinson for sure with the way he LOVES music.
We of course had to go see Santa who was at the Anthem outlets. We waited in line for 45 mins behind many children crying and scared of Santa. Fischer could have cared less about Santa (which I was happy about because after waiting for 45 mins I wasn't sure how he would act).
We celebrated Christmas with Blake's family on Christmas Eve Eve (since Blake worked Christmas Eve). We started the night with opening gifts for Fischer before he went to bed. He loved every moment of it. Then we ate dinner and opened our gifts after he went to bed.

Fischer with his Aunts & Grammy. He got his own stocking this year :) As you can see he's holding some plastic keys that he got which he loved. Isn't that always how it works, they end up liking the cheapest toy!
His big gift was an exersaucer. It took Uncle Glenn reading directions to Uncle Bus and Papa to put it together.
Once put together he was fascinated with all the fun toys. His feet just barley touched the ground so I'm sure that soon enough he'll be on the move in this thing.
We started Christmas morning with breakfast at Fischer's great grandparents house. It's been a tradition ever since I can remember that we have eaten Christmas breakfast with them. So it was fun to carry on that tradition with Fischer.

We then went back to Alison's parents house to see what goodies Santa brought! :) Fischer got tons of new clothes and our big gift was a off-road stroller that also turns into a trailer that attaches to a bike. We are so excited for him to get a little bit bigger so we can start up our bike rides again. Oh and he also got a helmet to wear when he rides in the trailer.
Yep he got tired very quickly Christmas day. As you can see in this picture as he was crying. He and Blake (who was up all night the night before at work) went to go take a long afternoon nap before dinner.
Uncle Brian got him this very cute hat!!! He looks like such a stud in his new hat!
The other side of the family came over for dinner. So Fischer got to see his other great grandma.
So as you can image it was a VERY long day and Fischer had his moments of being over tired which he showed by crying. But he was such a trooper. And we all had a great first Christmas with him. I had to post this picture of him at the end of the night. This was right before we headed home. Normally he has a grin ear to ear when flying through the air, nope not this day. His face and droopy eye's shows how tired he was. He was alseep before we even backed out of my parents driveway.
