We did our tour of Indiana for Christmas again. First stop, Fort Wayne...

What is this? Rip the paper, you say?

Oh, there's something under the paper?

Hi Frosty. My new friend.

Onto Crown Point...Merry Christmas!

I've written a song for this occasion.

There are presents here too!

This is TOTALLY mine.

Grandpa, do you like my bib?

When is Santa coming again?

Who are you?


And you are???

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Pre-Christmas, we met our friends Kris, Drew and Sofia (a recurring guest star) for Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo. It started snowing while we were there -- so it was totally quiet, only we were in the middle of the city. Harry had a chance to try out his new snowsuit from Grandma.

There are wet pellets hitting me in the face. I have a scratchy wool thing around my neck. Why is this fun?

Pretty....(In mom's voice...)

Dad, you are cracking me up.

The boys

My BFF Sam is here to play! Yay!

I know you have a sister who will teach you lots of fun things, but I need to show you a couple fun boy things.

Let's start with my new wrestling move. It's best to do this when they're trying to change your diaper. You can do this or pee on them. Anyhow, you start with a kick like this....

Sam obviously already has the flirting thing down...

Visit with Grandma

Grandma came to babysit and brought Harry his first Christmas gift. Wrapping paper seems similar enough to his favorite thing, the newspaper, that unwrapping the gift was a VERY FUN activity.

Special delivery

Who says kids today don't read newspapers?

Happy Thanksgiving

Harry did a tour of the great state of Indiana for Thanksgiving.

He had a grand time with his cousins Syd, Cam and Maggie (who left before the editors could get their act together to take a picture. We'll get that next time!)

Harry has a heart to heart with Uncle Joe and Uncle Aaron...


Changing of the guard

Dad's back to work, so aunties have taken over while Mom goes back to work...
