Merry Christmas!

Ok, not the most original title for a blog, but this mommy gets tired.
We took this pic today in a hat from Aunt Ashley. Way cute, huh? We made him wear that hat for like, hours. He doesn't like putting a hat on, but once its there, he doesn't really care. We had a way fun day. Last night I cooked Christmas dinner. My first turkey and everything! Then he got really cranky at Grandma Macs. He cried for a couple hours. But Santa still came. Big softie.
This is our boy yesterday morning. He can put his whole fist in his mouth. Takes after Uncle KK. Good thing we named him after him!
Marsahll eating prunes. The kid loves food. We're still looking for a food he doesn't like!
He got so spoiled this year. Good thing he's too little to know he's spoiled. He has so many toys! I'm going to have to buy him another toy bin. He was pretty jolly today at Grandma Becky's. He loved lots of his gifts and also thought the HUGE snow fort Daddy built was cool too. Seriously, this fort is as high as I am tall. Lots of snow made for lots of fun! Hope you all had GREAT Christmases! And we're so excited Trevor and Michelle are having an Atticus! Marshall needs a Butchart buddy. And someone to use all the hand-me-downs.

Christmas Fun with Baby!

Ok, so the real reason I'm posting these is beecause I need a reminder that Marshall is a cute little guy. He's been in a bad mood due to a tendancy to want to get up and play in the middle of the night. If it were all gumdrops and rainbows, Lindsay Lohan would get pregnant, right?

Here's Marshall Claus! We have Austin's family party tonight and Austin will be Santa, so we decided to make Marshall his little helper. I couldn't pick a favorite shot, so you get all three. Good for Grandmas, a little boring for you. I'm sorry.



Here's Marshall on the 17th. One of his favorite parts of the day is to get the mail with mom. It's cold here now, so Marshall has to wear his snow bear suit. Putting it on is not his favorite part, but he does enjoy wearing it, especially if he manages to eat some snow.






He is being noisy right now and a little cranky. Maybe I'll cheer him up by putting him in the bear suit and tossing him in the snow while it isn't too cold.
If I don't post before the big day, Merry Christmas everyone! I'm excited to see your holiday photos on your blogs too!

More Marshall, Of Course . . .

Here's our little man again! For those of you not into babies, sorry. In a little while it'll be toddlers, though! At the end of the post, I promise to put in some big people news, ok? Alright. Well, every once in a while Marshall teeths. He uses his binkie as a teething ring. This is how he does it. On purpose. For real.
I'm working on Daddy going to work being less upsetting for Marshall, so this morning we talked about Dad having gone to work so Marshall could steal his chair. Apparently, this was a big hit with the little guy.
He proceeded to tip himself over and watch more Reading Rainbow.


For older news, our waterheater kept leaking. Water heaters are not supposed to do that, so we had a plumber come and fix it. How exciting. Ummm . . . we wish it were snowier here. If its going to be cold, it better be pretty! That's what I say, anyhow.
OH! Austin got me a REAL tree this year! It smells nice. We got a little one so it would fit in the little corner. I like it. It makes me feel all Christmasy. If that's even a word. It isn't, is it? Oh well.
We'r done Christmas shopping, which is exciting, and getting ready to fly to Seattle on the 30th for KK's reception. That should be interesting with the baby, since he doesn't especially enjoy laps for long periods of time. I think we might have to bring cookies for the passengers next to us. Or buy them alcohol.
