December 19-21, 2007 - Blue Harbor Christmas

Colin went to the Blue Harbor Resort/Indoor Waterpark in Sheboygan, WI w/ Mama, Grandpa (Papa), Aunt Lissa and Uncle Dan for an early Christmas vacation! It was a fun early Christmas celebration (and chilly outside but cozy in the resort!)

Mama and Colin freeze for a quick picture on the balcony overlooking a chilly Lake Michigan.
Colin acts silly and give a big grin while crawling around on the bed.
Colin "swimming" in the kiddie pool :)
Colin and Mama pose wearing their English Christmas cracker crowns!
Papa and Colin read his new John Deere digger book together!
Uncle Dan, Colin and Aunt Lissa (guess who got spoiled??)
Mama helps Colin crawl through the last part of this tunnel suspended in the air of the Sheboygan Children's Musuem that was so much fun!!!

December 16, 2007 - Snow, snow and more snow!

Colin sticks his hands into the snow piles and then Mama sticks him into the snow piles :)

Colin tries to sit down in his snow suit/boots/coat and can't quite get off the floor wrapped in all of the layers (very 'Christmas Story' :) and here's our house with all of the snow... and December isn't even over yet!

December 9, 2007 - Wrapping presents

Colin was a GREAT help to Mama wrapping some Christmas presents tonight... and you can REALLY tell which ones he helped with! :) His favorite part is unwrapping the roll of paper and putting on the tape... lots of tape!

Here's Colin being silly and saying cheese in front of our Christmas tree!

December 9, 2007- Santa!

Colin and Mama brave Brookfield Square to visit Santa on Sunday.

It was a fun time and Colin was mesmerized by the sight of the man in the red suit actually sitting in front of him by the time we got to the front of the line.

He loved sitting on Santa's lap but definitely has that look of awe on his face in this picture. Colin didn't quite sputter out his Christmas list to Santa so it was a good thing that he had practiced so much with Mama so she knew just what to tell Santa (a digger, please!) and to verify that Colin has been a good boy when Santa asked him.

December 3, 2007 - First snowfall

Colin anxiously awaits our first venture out into the snow after Saturday's snow storm halfway dressed in his snowpants and boots.
Then, he helps shovel snow, one his new favorite activities (well, behind throwing the piles of snow back onto the freshly cleared path by Mama... :)

December 2, 2007 - rest of the playdate

Colin and Cole have fun eating some snacks, stacking up the blocks into towers and KNOCKING them down (with their hands, feet, and running anything they could find into them!)

The boys play with the puppets; Cole shows off the Lion and Colin gives the Giraffe a hug!

December 2, 2007 - BoUnCy HoUsE!!!

The boys get ready......

... to BOUNCE and be silly in Colin's new bouncy house (an early Christmas present from Aunt Lissa- the BESTEST Aunt in the whole world!)

Colin has his friend Cole over to try out the bouncy house with him in the rec room. This will provide hours of cooped up wintertime entertainment :)
