This holiday season is a little different than we are used to. Having a newborn has really changed things this year. We tend to stay home and indoors a lot more than we are used to! Blake and I won't be taking a Christmas shopping trip to Lincoln or Omaha, (sad for me as I love Christmas shopping!) we haven't drove around looking at lights much this year, our house is minimally decorated, and we haven't played in the snow at all yet. (we did take one evening last week and went out to eat at Runza, (Brooks' choice) and looked at a few lights, but that's about it!) However, we are enjoying our little addition to the family! He has been a great baby! He does a pretty good job sleeping at night (usually 3 hour chunks of sleep) and is starting to have more and more times he is awake and just watching his surroundings. Anyway, here are a few pictures of things we've been up to.
Brooks helped my mom and I make all the Christmas goodies for the ACE open house a couple weeks ago. We made probably close to 500 cookies and treats, and there were quite a few left over! oh well, we will know not to make so much next year!
Brooks did a great job unwrapping all the hershey kisses and putting them on the pretzels.
