Without further ado... Christmas!

Hooray for Christmas! And double hooray for finally getting around to blogging about it. The long and short of it is that we made it to Bryce's parents house relatively unscathed. Little was a trooper there and back. Seriously... amazing. All my panicking was for naught (as usual) and after 14-15 hours of travel Little was still happy as a clam. There were a few breakdowns, but at what was 2:00 AM for us he got his 56th wind and was bouncing around the house like a crazy nut and loving everyone and everything. The loving everything and everyone is still going strong, and sometimes the crazy nut, but for the most part it has settled down.

Christmas was a blast. Little has never been so cute in his life. He loved all of his gifts and provided entertainment for all. He loved the packaging almost as much as his gifts and there are few times I have laughed so hard as when he started smooching people through plastic. Needless to say, he had a blast and so did we.
We got to hang out with Great Grandma Lowder (who Little adores--all she has to do is enter the room and he starts giggling), went caroling, watched plenty of football, ate great food, spent lots of good time with family, all-in-all a perfect Christmas.
We took a trip to the city with the whole family where Little refused to release his aunty's hand even while in the stroller. Turns out a stroll down the pier, delicious doughnuts, sea lions, pooping pigeons, and some serious Ghirardelli hot chocolate, followed by a good football game makes for a perfect day.
We also went to the zoo with Grandpa and had a blast. Munching penguins, chasing birds, petting goats, could life get any better? Little was exhausted by the time we were done, but he was a trooper and he had so so much fun. We also got to take a picture in front of the self same storks we posed in front of when I was pregnant with Little. Things have definitely changed since then.
So there is Christmas in a nutshell. Family and fun. We're glad to be home, but so so sad to leave. We're already doing our best to con them into visiting us though, so hopefully we'll see everyone soon. 
Also, as a bonus. Here is Little's new trick:
