 We did our best to get a picture of Austin with Yo Yo and Grandpa G- as you can see it didnt exactly turn out great.

We did, however, finally make some progress and got these 2...

Santa and Mrs. Claus made a surprise visit in Oxford on Christmas Eve.  It was weird that Santa used the front door, I guess he couldn't find the chimney!

Austin was so excited to see him! 

 He just smiled and laughed and cuddled with Santa

And had to give him a big Hug before he left!

Austin started calling Miles, "cousin" on Christmas Eve... They are too cute for words!

This could have been the beginning of a diaster at Bronners!

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Happy Birthday to the best napping buddy around!

Christmas Eve at Bronners

Austin and Grandpa G waiting for Santa
For the last few years we have gone to Frankenmuth on Christmas Eve with our families and enjoyed the day at Bronners and Bavarian Inn for lunch....

"Santa, hug? Santa, hug? Santa, hug?"
"Oh, I didnt really think about what I wanted for Christmas..."

Happy Birthday Frosty!

Our local library had a birthday party for Frosty the other day!
This was one of the only shot I got while he was actually sitting...

Austin's friend Hannah got to come with us too!
Frosty, look at my new toy!
Hugs all around
"I'm gonna sock you!"

Who says Christmas morning can't be today?

Isn't his new stocking adorable?
Showing off his new reindeer "sippers" from our friend Danielle
I bet he could get used to this every morning!
Dancing elmo... Every kids dream

Andrew took Austin bowling for the first time on their day together. Austin had a blast despite his injury. I think he learned why you have to stay behind the black line!
Check out these shoes!
So strong!
How does this thing work?

Smiles for Santa

First we must pray Santa, because the season is really about Jesus, not you!
Then we can smile and have fun!

We joined friends Kristin and Anthony in Plymouth to see Santa and enjoy dinner together. Although the line was long then we thought, the boys hung in there and enjoyed themselves!

More Cool Yule

At family fun day we also had lots of craft time and got to color and make wreaths...
Such focus as he makes his Go Blue wreath which turned into a bracelet, which at the moment is lost!
Next stop was the parade... Austin found comfort in this complete stranger
"Oh wait, who was that lady just hugging me?"
