Christmas in Nebraska

Merry Christmas, everyone.
I have been having a wonderful time in Nebraska. I hope Santa Claus was as generous with all the other kids as he was with me. I wanted to show off one of my presents -- a new huskers outfit!

Tomorrow I am going to go to my other Grandpa and Grandma's house in Kansas. I am having so much fun -- I never want Christmas break to end.

Snow Day

Sorry it has been so long since I posted a message. I have been very busy lately. Luckily, the winter weather is providing me with some extra free time. Yesterday I had my second snow day in a week. Snow days are great. Day care is cancelled so I get to stay home with dad. He has finals right now and is studying all the time, but I don't think he minded playing with me instead.

Yesterday was especially fun. Since dad has a test today I thought I would play a prank on him and skip my afternoon nap (that is when he would have been able to study).

The trick to this prank is to keep standing up in the crib, because you can't fall asleep when you are standing up. It was so funny!

Christmas Party

Here I am at the Ave Maria Christmas party.

(I don't remeber if this picture was taken at the beginning of the party, when I was just playing it cool, or at the end of the party, when I was SO tired.)

It was a pretty fun time. I saw my friend Will there. There were lots of snacks to eat (but I only got to try the carrots). Plus, I got to stay out really late--it was like 7:00 before we went home!

My Advent Calendar

I have been so excited to start using the Advent calendar my Grandma and Grandpa Henning gave us. Although its actually the fifth day of Advent, today was the first day on the advent calendar (talk about expecting an awful lot of patience from a nine month old kid!).

I couldn't wait to find out what was in the first pocket, so I opened it first thing in the morning before Mom went off to work.

It's a Christmas Bell! I love it!

I'm going to keep ringing it all December to make sure that my parents (and my neighbors) haven't lost their Christmas spirit.
