Journey: Chinese Lantern Festival

David found something!
I'm still playing catch up from the Christmas season. Going back to school was rough especially since Steve was off an extra week. It was hard to leave my boys each morning. We're almost to the half way point in school and I'm already looking forward to the summer. David is learning new things each week and I'm so thankful he has such a wonderful place to learn and play each day!!!
During the Christmas break we took advantage of the beautiful weather to head up to Dallas one evening. We went to the Chinese Lantern Festival and it was fabulous. This is the second year they've had it at Fair Park. It starts during the fair and ends right after the new year. We are anxious to share things about China with David so he will know about the country he came from. Chinese New Year is right around the corner!
We enjoyed looking at all the beautiful art work. Some of the lanterns are actually built in China and then assembled in Texas. The artistry is beautiful!! We also enjoyed some Chinese acrobats, such talent! It was a wonderful evening spent together!!

By the end of the evening David was tired! What a fun night!!

Journey: David's first Christmas

What an awesome first Christmas we had!! David was so excited to be at Papa and Gigi's house with everyone. We all slept in the same room and when David woke up he thought it was very fun to play peek-a-boo. We had some snuggle time before it was time to head out and see what Santa had brought.
David loves Mickey Mouse clubhouse so that was his theme for gifts from Santa. He got a MMC chair, large plush, and pajamas. He also got a push and go trike for inside which he has been riding non-stop! He loved finding things in his stocking and most of all being with family. That was the best part, being with everyone.
After Santa we had our traditional breakfast. David loves eggs and especially enjoyed my mom's casserole. By the time we were finished with breakfast Hannah had sorted all the gifts and we were ready to have some fun together. David got very distracted with everyone and the paper and the gifts.
No more words... here are some pictures!

He loves to ride his bike everywhere!
