Owen's first Christmas was awesome. I don't even really know what else to say about it, except that it was my favorite Christmas ever. Seeing him experience it all was so much fun.
On Christmas Eve, we went to Grandma and Grandpa's (Ross's parents) house. Owen wore a sweater vest. (Who put me in charge of dressing a child?)

|New hat from Aunt Rachel. I love it because he can't figure out how to take it off.|
High five for this one, Rachel :-)

|He's obsessed with his activity table. He dances along with the music.|
|He stole the Reese's candy cane out of Ross's stocking|
|And the candy canes off of the tree.|
|Reading books with Nanny|
|He kept looking up my dad's nose. Boys are gross.|
|Pouting because I wouldn't let him break all of the ornaments. (Notice he stole Ross's stocking candy at my parents' house, too. )|
|Petting Big Kitty for the first time. Kitty was not amused.|
|My new favorite picture.|
We ended the night at my aunt's house. I suck and forgot to take pictures there, but we had a ball. Owen loved all of the attention he got, and even put on a nice display of his 'tricks' while we were eating supper.
My favorite part of that night was when my 8-year-old cousin asked me if she could borrow Owen to star in her silent movie, 'Attack of the million foot baby from OUTER SPAAAAAAACE!'
Did I let her borrow him? Yes.
They eventually fired him, though, because he wasn't being monstery enough or something. The best part was, they were so serious when they told him they were replacing him. 'This just isn't working out.'
I love my family.
I hope all of your holidays were as happy as ours! Now we're in the countdown (6 days) to Owen's birthday. Unreal.
