Christmas 2010

I know it has been so long since I have posted. I am determined to catch up on my blog and start updating more regularly. So with that said, be prepared for more posts!

Christmas Eve 2009 started off with a visit to Chris's Grandparents house in McKinney. We went there for a late lunch and spent some time with Jean and Pop's, Aunt Melody and Uncle Bill, Uncle Kelly and Aunt Pauline and Connor, and J and Nae (Chris's mom and dad).

From there we went to Prestonwood Baptist Church for their candlelight service. Easton went to the nursery which he usually always enjoys. He loves playing with new toys and the other kids. Usually the only time he cries is when another kid is crying. I guess it scares him like something is wrong and he should cry too.

After church we went to our good friends the Horns house. We have had this tradition for many years. They are like family to us. Amber Horn and I went to highschool together and our mom's are now best of friends. This year was extra fun because Santa came to visit their house and bring all the kids a special early Christmas present. Here are some photos from the night.

Christmas 2010 was a great Christmas. Santa was very good to Easton. You know you have been a good boy when you get 3 wagons! My parents got him one and Chris's parents ended up getting him one for our house and one for their house. I don't think we will need to buy anymore wagons. He also got a ball pit, a power wheels 4 wheeler, a cozi coupe, another push car, a tool bench, and several other toys. This kid isn't spoiled at all!!! Here are some pictures from Christmas morning.

Easton's First Birthday

I know I am way behind on blogging, but I am going to try and catch up! So here it goes...Easton's 1st Birthday!

Easton had 2 parties for his birthday. Chris and I threw him one at our neighborhood clubhouse and my mom and dad gave him a family party at their house.

Chris and I decided to have his party on Saturday, October 30 from 2-4. We had a Halloween themed party since it was the day before Halloween. We thought the kids might enjoy having another chance to wear their costumes. I thought the party turned out really well. We had a lot of great friends come and Easton had a blast. They say that the first bday is for the parents...well I have to disagree....Easton loved every minute. He loved getting to play with all his friends. He wrestled and played with the big pumpkin balls and enjoyed all the attention. He was in heaven!

Here are some pictures from the big day....

Easton didn't want to take the time to take pictures...he was having too much fun!















































The next weekend we had Easton's family party at my parents house. We did a Curious George party. He had a blast here too...he always loves going over to my parent's house. He LOVES his Cha Cha and Pip and his Aunt Amanda and Uncle Nathan. My God Parents came too. He is very loved!

























And he was done! All partied out!
