Catching up

It is hard to believe I haven't posted since Halloween!  I think in the back of my mind I thought I had been posting, when in reality that's all I did...think about it.  So I will try to catch us up with some pictures.  For Alex's first thanksgiving we went to Great Grandpa and Grandma Eicher's house for dinner.  Alex did pretty well but had another ear infection so we had to change his clothes a couple times (Dang antibiotics!)  Then we went to his Great Great Aunt Glenda and Uncle John's house for second thanksgiving dinner.  Mom and Dad were stuffed but Alex didn't seem to mind!  He got to see his cousin Collins again and now that he is getting bigger they were able to play a little bit.  I can't wait until they are both a little older and can play on equal ground!

Alex was very lucky to have 5 Christmases this year.  That is pretty good for your first Christmas!  We started out the season by traveling down to South Carolina to see Grandma Des and Grandpa Haynie.  It was a great trip and we missed out on a snowstorm back home so that was an added bonus!  We went to HollyWild to see the Christmas lights and Alex got to meet some new animal friends!  We also got to take a trip to Biltmore Mansion.  Alex slept through most of it but when he was awake he enjoyed the beautiful decorations!  His second Christmas was the weekend before Christmas, when Grandma and Grandpa Webb came to visit.  We had a yummy ham dinner with all the fixins!  Next he had Christmas with Great Grandma Nancy, Aunt Jenn and his cousins Meghan and Andrew.  I had to work all Christmas weekend, so we ended up having our family Christmas on Christmas Eve after I got off of work.  As usual Alex enjoyed the wrapping paper and boxes more than his presents! Last but not least we went to Grandpa Steve and Grandma Stephanie's house on New Years.  So he got to celebrate his first New Years and fifth Christmas together!  Alex had fun but didn't quite make it to midnight.  Which I am sure is a good thing!
