2011 Here We Come!!

Our new years was pretty uneventful. Blake worked again this year so Fischer, the dogs and I all had a sleep over at Lance, Amanda & Lily's. If I remember correctly we hardly made it to the watch the count down and then were off to bed. We of course had to get a picture of Fischer and Lily before they went to bed. It's not easy to get a toddler to stay still for any long period of time. I think I'm bribing him with cherrios.
One final 2010 picture to make you smile!!! I can't believe another year has gone by!! 2011 I'm sure you will fly by just as fast as last year.

One thing I'm so excited for is watching Fischer as he grows up with his cousins! Most of my cousins lived in town but we really only saw each other a few times year at holidays. Fischer gets to see his cousins weekly. I know they are all going to grow up and not just be family but friends. Sorry Lily and Noah if Fischer teaches them a few unwanted things, that comes with the territory! I had the opportunity to catch up with 2 of my cousins over the holiday break. Once we all got older and more busy it was harder to stay in touch, well thankfully for facebook we semi get to see what is going on in each other lives. But it was so good to actually sit down over dinner and wine to talk face to face. I love these ladies!! I hope that Fischer has just as many fun memories as I have with my cousins.

The Robinson Cousins!!

Merry Christmas

We had a very busy Christmas again this year! We traveled from house to house seeing all sides of our families. But it was well worth it! We started on Christmas Eve after the service heading over to the Robinson family. We opened gifts for the kiddos first and then put them all to bed while we enjoyed our dinner opening our gifts later. The guys were very excited about the new fireworks law so of course fireworks were lit a few times during the night.
Christmas morning we got up and headed over to my Nanny and Papa's house. We enjoyed a great brunch. Then it was off to the Bennett family. Fischer of course was spoiled by my parents aka "santa".
Then last but not least we headed home to open some gifts just the 3 of us. Fischer is really into Curious George so this year as his yearly ornament we got him a Curious George one, that he was very excited to put on the tree. We also got him a new Curious George book of course.
What a great Christmas it was!

Christmas Festivities

Yet again this year Christmas is coming way to quickly. Just this week we got our christmas tree and christmas lights up. Every year since we've been married we have had a artificial tree. It has been so nice to put up the tree early and then leave it up until we find time to take it down (which is always way later than one wants to admit to keeping up their tree). But this year we wanted to make Christmas a little more special so we decided to buy a real tree. It was an adventure but isn't that what makes is so memorable. We are loving having a real tree. The smell of a real tree is un-like any candle you can buy. And we were so worried about Fischer messing with the tree and so far he is not bothering it.
I also took Fischer to go see Santa. I wasn't really sure how he would react to Santa this year. He was fine until the moment I sat him on Santa's lap and walked away then the crying started. Not to blame him, sitting on some scary, stranger's lap dressed in a crazy outfit all alone is not comforting to a 15 month old. We got one picture of him not crying and that was because I gave him some cherrios to eat.
Here's a picture of him last year! He was almost 4 months old (the santa was the same one this year).
The first weekend in December our church had a festival called Deck the Warehouse. It's something they have done every year. This year they had a real horse drawn carriage that went around the Scottsdale Airpark. But the best part was a toddler area they had blocked off with hay bales. I was able to let Fischer run around safely with all of his friends while I enjoyed yummy Christmas treats with coffee. Everyone who knows what a 15 month old is like knows how nice it is to not have to chase them every moment of the day.
