1st Christmas with Will

Our first post! 
Will seemed to enjoy the holidays: lights, smells, textures, etc. We had a hectic Christmas eve, though. I was extremely ill, the weather was bad, the restaurant we'd planned to eat at with Grandma C and Grandpa D was closed early (we found out as we arrived), and you'd have thought I starved Will all day with the screaming he was doing, so we decided to cut our losses and grab Chinese take-out, sans grandparents. We were frazzled, but after we counted all of our blessings, mellowed out, and were fed, we opened presents and made some cute home movies. His favorite gifts were the bubble wrap I brought home from work, and a soft, tiny, Juniper-like plant I found at the grocery store (if only he could stay this easy to shop for...). He had fun with a soft foam ball from Nana, which the dogs promptly devoured; and loves the favorite books passed on from cousin Andi. Sadly, we missed the Moore family Christmas party because I was just too sick, but we did make a quick visit to Christmas Village, in about 20 degree weather, wrapped snuggly in his little teddy bear suit (the one I purchased almost two years before he was born!). He had a little too much to drink, and passed out with mom. All in all, I think it was a good experience for him, and we just may try it again next year.
