Four Weeks and Counting...

We are down to one month until baby. Needless to say, my body is ready but it seems like there is plenty to do before we welcome another member into our family. My cousin, Johna, is also in her last several weeks of pregnancy. We tried to capture all of the big bellies before the babies come!

Sam Rides the Pink Pig

Taking a ride on the Pink Pig is an Atlanta tradition, and we thought it was time for Sam to take part. Though he looks serious in the pictures, Sam loved the ride and kept asking for "more pig" for the rest of the night.

Christmas in Georgia

We spent our first Christmas in Atlanta, and it was wonderful. My parent's came to celebrate with us and we loved the relaxing week. Sam loved Christmas morning and was helpful in opening everyone's presents.

Sam loved his new Falcons bean bag - though he just thinks its a really big ball.

Here is Sam inventorying the goods from the day.

Sam's favorite present from my parents was the train table my dad built for him. Here is the video of him finding it in his room. We've already spent hours with trains - thank you Grandpa!

Here is a video of Sam opening his Elmo Live from Shawn and Shelva. That, along with his wagon, were his two favorite presents so far this year. It appears as if Sam reads the box because he knew it was Elmo before he even saw it. Pretty funny.

Sam's First Santa and Christmas Tree

Here are some pictures of Sam visiting his first Santa Clause (who happened to be Leroy) and him inspecting his first Christmas tree (didn't have one last year due to his crawling state).

Sam's Gifts

Here are the highlights of the Christmas Gifts:

Sam is riding in his new wagon with his Elmo Live. Sam was pretty thrilled with both of those gifts!

Here is Sam playing with his Lego Duplo Thomas set from his Pop-Pop

Christmas in PA

We got the opportunity to spend a few days in Pennsylvania last weekend to celebrate Christmas since Katie can't travel over Christmas this year due to her condition. Here are some pictures of our trip:

Here is my mom's family after opening presents on Christmas morning.

Sam pretty quickly learned how to open his presents. He seemed to be a big fan of Christmas morning.
