Nelson & Knowlton Christmas Traditions

Huck had a great 1st Christmas between the Nelson FHE & nativity scene...

To the Knowlton Christmas Eve Dinner & sugar cookie decorating contest...

To our own French toast breakfast & opening presents (we waited until he got up from his morning nap, probably the last year - at least for a long time - we will open gifts at noon)...

Maybe next year Huck will be a little more into the whole idea of Christmas, but for the 1st round we sure had a lot of fun, especially Beamer!

Happy New Year!

Huck meets The Claus!

We ventured out to Fashion Place Mall over the weekend to introduce Huck to the guy in the big red suit, we figured it maybe the only year for the next several that he doesn't scream for the picture. I did feel a little weird handing our child off to some strange guy to hold, but he said he had experience as a 6 day old baby had been in to see him earlier in the week!

*Jon wanted me to hop in on the 1st one - make sure Santa didn't drop Huck, he passed, but he did get a little too close for comfort! A pretty authentic looking Kris Kringle -- just wanted to use as many different names for Santa Claus as possible in this post!

Merry Christmas Week!
