Christmas! Part I....

We have had such a fantastic holiday week/weekend that I couldn't fit it all into just one post, so it's probably going to take me several posts to accomplish all of the fun we have had! We have had a whole lot of cuteness with Colin so we are excited to share! We hope you all had a very magical Christmas weekend as well!

Our celebration started on Wednesday when Uncle Timmy came here all the way from North Carolina to visit on his way up to my parent's house. Uncle Pat came with him and we went to Daddy's basketball game versus Villanova. It was a disappointing loss, but, we had fun all the same! The next morning, the boys were playing Mario Kart and Colin wanted to get in on the action. He even wanted to be like one of the boys without his shirt on...



Later that day, we had Colin's Christmas Party at his school (The Growing Tree Children's Academy) and he had such a fun time with his buddy Tommy. I think he thought we were leaving him at first so he was a little whiney, but then realized we were there to have fun with him!
I love how Colin is waiting patiently in this picture with the other kids for the food because he is waiting patiently to not want any of it and in turn, throw it...

"Hey Mom, I know you are taking a picture of me!"


Having fun with Tommy....



After the party, we decided to start up an old tradition that Chris and I used to have and we went to one of our favorite restaurants (and the location of some of our 1st dates), for a yummy pre-Christmas dinner. On the way, the sun was setting so beautifully, so I had to stop and take a picture...


Off to the right is where Chris proposed on a dock...

Colin was more interested in everything else going on around us that night. He was chatting it up with the waiters and waitresses hanging around our table...

...see them in the background?

On our way home we stopped and saw our buddy Meredity where Colin got to open his present!

That night, we finished off the start of our celebration opening some of the other fun gifts that Colin had received from friends....

More to come from Christmas Eve and Christmas day with Parts II and III!
