Happy Holidays!

December seemed to fly by for us, but not so much for Micah. He couldn't wait to open his presents. We let him open his stocking and a gift from us on Christmas Eve morning.
One Happy Boy
 Opening stockings
 His one gift-Jake and the Neverland Pirates
 And Adelie opened Ariel and her castle
 He loves her 
 Christmas Eve with the Zielkes-Micah had many more gifts to open. Pictured is Mickey
 Christmas Day was spent at the Calhouns, and it was crazy with all the cousins! Good times. Unfortunately we didn't take any pictures. I'm not sure why since I know the camera was sitting right by us...

Thursday we celebrated Adelie's first birthday (a week early for family that was in town).
She had a cupcake theme party

 Giving kisses to her plush doggy, from Great Gramps
 Cupcake time! She ate the whole thing plus some ice cream. 

 Pictures on display-Adelie every month from 1-11 months

 Maier family Christmas on Friday-more food, more presents, more games, more good times! We are so spoiled. And here is Adelie getting spoiled by Papa, rocking before nap time.

Thanksgiving and getting a tree

We had a good long weekend off of work. It was sad to have Matt go back to school this morning...only 3 weeks until Christmas break!

 Saturday, Nov 30-Traditional day to go pick out our tree! Micah taking a horse drawn ride to pick out his tree.
 We let Micah pick out the tree this year. This is what he picked. Matt wasn't thrilled-not his first choice. It is short, but full and it made Micah happy!

 Getting decorations out-I think we bought these last year for a youth event...

 Adelie also liked them
 Discovering lights for the first time
