Ho, Ho, Ho...Merry Christmas

Wyatt must have been a good boy this year, because Santa brought him toys, toys and more toys. Add Grandmas, Grandpas, aunts and friends to that mix and it was out of control! Santa even made a special trip to the house Christmas Eve. Wyatt was a little skeptical at first, but warmed up to him after a while. He even gave him a cookie! After seeing Santa, we had fun making and decorating cookies (you can see where Wyatt got into the frosting)and making pizzas with friends Dasha and Andy. We maybe opened a few gifts from Grandma and Grandpa Reed...we just couldn't wait 'til morning! Christmas morning, we opened more gifts at the house, then hopped in the car to go to Grandma Lynne's and Grandpa John's. We opened more gifts and played like crazy! Mom and Dad snuck away for a few days to witness the Cats defeat Clemson in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, TN. While they were gone, Grandma Lynne and Grandpa John kept Wyatt busy with a new Jump-O-Lean, a train and ice cream sandwiches. We're not so sure that Wyatt was ready for Mom and Dad to come back. We headed back home today and Wyatt is tucked into bed with visions of new toys in his head.

Wyatt the Cookie Monster

Wyatt won't share his cookie.

Wyatt Checking Out the Christmas Tree

We put up the Christmas tree during Wyatt's nap. This video is his first look at the tree. He loves it.

"It's the Holiday Season"

We've been busy this holiday season at the Schlafer house! We hosted Thanksgiving (see photo to the left) and had a house full for a great day. It was perfect outside, so we got lots of playing time in. Then off to get a Christmas tree. Wyatt LOVES the Christmas tree. He cannot help himself but to just stand and look at in in awe. It will be interesting to see what he does when it is time for it to come down. We're working on Ho, ho, ho, but we haven't quite got that one down yet. He's learned some new games lately...all of which are fun for him, but only some are fun for mom and dad. He loves to play chase, which we all have fun with. His new ability to run is hilarious to watch. He just giggles, laughs and then bites it. It is too funny. What is not so fun to watch him play (okay, it was pretty funny the first time) is his new spitting game. Yep, almost a whole sippy of milk last night at dinner. He surely keeps us on our toes. Regardless which game he's playing, we're loving every minute of this special time of year with our boy.
