Catching Up

I know I have been a horrible blogger this week. I won't even make excuses. I am going to try to keep up over Christmas, though. We are leaving today for Fort Worth and I MUST post pictures of Kimmie's Christmas Tree. I don't know how I did not take any last week, but y'all must see this. She did her whole tree in the theme 'Aaron's First Christmas'. It is wonderful! I also must get some pictures of Grandad's house. He finally won 'Holiday Yard of the Month', though he's deserved it for years. It really is fantastic, but when we were there the other night I just wasn't able to get any pictures. So I will work on that. And, of course, you will want to see pictures of the Little Man on his first Christmas.

We headed to Fort Worth on Saturday and stayed at John and Kim's on Saturday night. There were already several presents waiting for him and we discovered that he LOVES tissue paper! We left him in the good hands of his grandparents and headed to dinner and a concert for my birthday. We spent the evening with the Cottons and really enjoyed it.

On Sunday morning we took advantage of Aaron's nap time to run over to the Fisher's house. We love David and Erica and their sweet "Babies", Ella and Jack. I can not even believe how big these kids are! Where does the time go?

Sunday afternoon we headed to Grandad's for the Annual Allen Christmas Extravaganza. I love this picture of Aaron with his great grandmother. Uncle John took it.
The party was fun (this is a picture of Aaron's cousin Lucas), but Aaron sure was clingy. We went to a playdate on Tuesday and experienced the exact same thing. Put him in a room with a lot of people that he doesn't know and he's attached to his Mama. He did eventually warm up at both places and crawl around a little bit, but he liked to know where Mama was.
Back on the home front we continued to work on self-feeding. He's got it down with the teething biscuits, but it is such a mess that he then has to be stripped down and cleaned up. He still won't feed himself anything else.We are actually looking forward to a very low key Christmas. We don't have much planned at all. We want Aaron to enjoy the time as much as possible. We wish all of you a very merry Christmas and will check in soon.
