Dancing feet and smiles so sweet!

It has been quite a while since I have posted video of Garrett. The main reason for this delay is my toddler's relentless need to stop and look at the camera every time it's pulled to capture a "timeless moment". Finally, we've figured a way to curb his curiosity, by using our iPod, which is taking him longer to catch on. Here are two videos from Christmas of Garrett dancing to the "Hot Dog" song from Mickey Mouse, his favorite show. He can recite Mickey's intro every time and he loves to dance to the finale song "Hot Dog". Now you can see proof of his terrible haircut that I have told so many people about. An event that Brandon and I are still scarred from. Enjoy!

Christmas Memories 2009

Its hard to believe Christmas is already a memory but here we are starting a year new already! WOW! I wanted to share our pictures from Christmas 2009. We had a wonderful, very relaxing vacation. We took three days and just spent time as a family at home watching Christmas movies and making cookies. On Tuesday we headed down to Evansville to spend time with family and friends. We were able to see several friends from high school during the holiday as well! The time spent with family was a treat. Most of all we felt that we had time to breathe in the joy of a child and celebrate the gift of Jesus Christ!

My best friend from junior high, Jenna Tieman and her children Isaac (3) and Isabelle (8 mos). We had a brunch, play date and had time to catch up. We have not seen eachother in over 5 years!

Isaac and Garrett playing guitars

My moms house was decorated beautifully, it felt like we were in a magazine. It definitely got you into the spirit!

On the 23rd, we went to the Fantasy of Lights in Eville. Garrett and his cousins had so much fun driving around looking at lights and singing carols!

Nothing like the spirit of a child at Christmas!

On Christmas Eve, we went bowling with the Stephens' clan!

Then Christmas eve dinner with Grandma Kline and Jerry at the Firefly.
