Miles’ first Christmas is here and gone. Family and friends were incredibly generous with gifts and Miles now has enough toys to last him until he is 4 years old. We spent Christmas Eve and morning with my mom, brother and grandparents. Then we headed over to my Dad and Eve’s house for a yummy scallop and dove stuffed jalapeno dinner. Since we were across the street we even stopped by Eric’s dad’s house for a little bit. Eric and I did what we always said we would never do…drive to every family member’s house on a holiday. We were tired but I know Miles had a ton of fun. After Christmas my aunt, uncle, cousin, and grandmother came to Austin. It was great getting to see them for a few days.
Last Friday we headed to Port Bolivar for our annual New Years trip with Hank, Susan, Lundon, Preston, Hanna, K.C., Chris and Kim. The weekend was filled with fireworks, games, and connect the dots. Kim and I spent hours playing with our $8.00 connect the dots books (some puzzles had over 1,000 dots). It was wonderful, mindless fun.
Miles had a great time riding the ferry and really liked the beach. He handled the 6 hour car trip VERY well and slept great in the closet of our bedroom. Chris was a master at getting him to laugh. He just needed to walk into a room and Miles would break out into a big grin. Pictures of our trip are posted in the trips album in our photo section if you care to look.
And it looks like Miles is getting his Christmas wish…his top 2 front teeth are poking through his gums. Let the biting commence!
I hope you have a wonderful 2008!!
