HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Posted by Krista Layman at 10:36 PM
We took a little mini-trip to Indy the past few days. After checking into our hotel...we headed downtown and took a tour of the Colts Stadium. It was pretty cool...getting to see everything and go into different places...but would have been cooler if we could have run down the 50 yard line and seen the home locker room. But instead...we got to walk along the endzone, saw the visitor locker room and went all the way to the top and saw the press boxes. Then...we headed downtown for dinner at Hard Rock Cafe...and a quick cold walk around the circle to look at the lights Then....back to the hotel for a a little swimming and then games and snacks in the hotel lobby with our friends the Siglens. They have a 6 year old girl and a baby boy, Elijah, who is 1 week older than Grant.
After a TERRIBLE night sleep, no thanks to Grant who was fussy ALL NIGHT LONG, we headed to the Children's Museum. Seth had a great time, and as always, Grant was the energizer bunny! He only slept for about 2o minutes during a play with saw. The hits of the day were the giant slide and of course, the trains!

And...in honor of our sweet Kate...our special Angel Tree will always be lit...and each year, she'll get a new angel ornament in her stocking. We wish more than anything we would have a little 3 year old red-headed little girl to celebrate with...but we know...you are having the best Christmas in heaven. But until we join you...your little angel tree will be lit...and all will know of our special little angel who blessed us for 18 wonderful months!

Grandma goes all out with stockings for all of us! It's such a treat to open and see all the fun stuff we get each year! (We had just had red punch, in case you couldn't tell from Seth's face)

Grant got a ball popper and a bucket swing for the swing set
The ball popper was pretty COOL in the eyes of a almost 6month old (and a 5 year old too)
And then...what would Christmas morning be without a quick ride outside on the new bike! He caught on the the hand breaks very quickly...I'm telling ya...we've got a quick learner in our family!

Seth: "Mommy...Get Grant in bed NOW! Santa is on his way...get him in bed NOW!"
All 5...opening gifts!
After dinner...we went to church and then came home to finish decorating our gingerbread house
Grant wanted to help too!What a perfect Christmas present this year!
Cookies for Santa
Reading of Luke...the REAL reason for Christmas
Andy and I then got to "play Santa" and we watched a little of the musical Scrooge on YouTube before hitting the sack...counting the many many blessings in our life!
