Here are some photos from Christmas morning - Ian really enjoyed pulling the tissue paper out of the bags. Tonight, Bill & Sharon took us to a Hibachi grill for dinner. Ian was a little frightened of the fire, but loved watching the chef in his bright red hat. Then we went for ice cream - I got eggnog flavored and it was great!

Today we all went to church and then celebrated Christmas with the Harrison side of the family. Ian got some really fun toys, but was a little overwhelmed with the number of people. He took a long nap when everyone left!

In Alabama for Christmas

Jeremy, Ian & I arrived here in Alabama yesterday to spend time with the Rowland side of the family. Not only does Ian get to see his grandparents, but also his cousins, aunts, uncles and great-grandmother. He is really enjoying being with Jeremy's sister Janna's boys - Carter(3 yr)and Logan(6 mos).

Ian loved story time with Grandma tonight!

Christmas is Coming

Friday night we went to the Christmas Journey - a live interactive nativity scene put on by our church. We took the "hayride" which actually had benches rather than hay. Ian stayed awake the whole time despite the fact that it was past his bedtime.
Tonight Jeremy & I went to his office Christmas party downtown. Ian stayed with Summer - his first babysitter outside of family. Summer and I were roommates in college. I did okay leaving him, but it didn't take me long to give him a kiss once I got home! Before we left for the party, we had fun decorating Christmas cookies.

Yesterday Ian had his first taste of meat. He got a little bit of finely shredded turkey mixed in his sweet potatoes. Today he got some daddy time while I did some Christmas shopping and errands. I think they had fun together.
