Christmas 2007

Jeremy, Liam and I had a wonderful Christmas this year! We had my dad and Natalie over for Prime Rib dinner on Christmas Eve and opened gifts with them. Jeremy and Liam got a 55 gallon fish tank that is really cool! Then Christmas morning, my mom and Natalie came over to open Santa's gifts and hang out with us. Liam got a train table from my mom that he is absolutely in love with! After the gifts were open, Jeremy's friend Will and his mom came over for breakfast. It was wonderful having them here, they are a big part of our family. I hope we can start a new tradition of that in the years to come. After breakfast, we let Liam take a nap and Jeremy and I cleaned up a little. Then we headed to Jeremy's parents house for our third Christmas celebration! We had a great ham dinner then it was time to go home to bed. It was a huge day with lots of excitement. Thank you everyone for the wonderful gifts! Until next year...

Now Natalie has helped him get inside of the cat condo.
Christmas morning, coming down to see the gifts!
The first look! (even though Liam had a sleeper on, he insisted on having the Elmo socks my dad gave him too!)

The new train table.
Breakfast with the fam.
I'm not sure who likes the train more, Liam or Jer!
This kid is really spoiled and has a million people that love him! A week after Christmas, he's still overwhelmed with all the new toys he has!!!

Random bits of fun

These are some ranom pictures I would like to share! First, Liam has two new passions. One is cooking, the other is taking pictures with my camera. We've been working on the picture taking (mostly he gets his fingers infront of the lense so all you get are pictures of his fingers) but the other day he got a good one so I have to share. Also, the Saturday before Christmas, Liam and I went out to get the mail and there was a huge hot air balloon practically in our front yard. We got really excited and took a few pictures of that too. It was a beautiful day and the balloon was awesome!

The picture Liam took of me and Tassy! Pretty good, huh!
These are my two crazy dogs!
Pretty balloon!

Snow day!

Helping dad...

Liam's pink nose and cheeks!

First, I have to document the fact that Jeremy shoveled! Jeremy and Liam bundled up to shovel the driveway that big storm before Christmas. Liam loves to "shabol." I can't really spell how he says "shovel" but it's really cute!

Trimming the tree!

Liam was having a rough night the other night and I was having a hard time finding something to entertain him with. Then I had a wonderful idea! Let's trim the tree! He and I had a great time, he was really good with the ornaments (I was a little concerned about him being careful with some of them, but he did really well!) We turned on some Christmas music and had a few dances too. When we were all done, Liam had his first cup of hot chocolate. I thought it was fitting! Now he's obsessed with marshmallows, but he was so cute with it.

Liam got his own "Cars" ornaments for this year.
Liam's favorite ornaments! He kept moving them around the tree but they were always hung together!

His first cup of Hot Cocoa! Not too hot though!
My finished nativity set! The pic is a little blurry, but you get the idea. I've been getting pieces for my b-day (which is in January, after Christmas) for the last few years and now it's finally complete this year. It's so beautiful, I love it. I would love to collect nativities. I think they are a beautiful piece of art and it illustrates the best story of all time!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Holy cow! I've been trying to blog these pictures for days, but my internet has been having serious issues. The Comcast guy promised I would be able to blog now, so I'm holding him to it. I don't think he understands the importance of the LiamClink blog! :)

Anyway, last weekend we had the December family party at my mom's. It was a really fun party! The boys got to decorate gingerbread houses and play in the snow. Zachary won the gingerbread house contest, he was really good at getting that candy on the frosting. Liam, Ty and Conner just wanted to eat it all and not worry about the house! Here are some fun pictures of the boys. Christmas becomes more fun with them every year! I can't believe this is Liam's 3rd Christmas already!

Liam, the poser as usual. (Wonder where he gets that from?) Zachary looks like he is in heaven!

Conner's house is looking a little bare!
Thank goodness Liam has an aunt. She's the best helper!
I did what I could, but it was really messy!
(note: Please notice 3 generations of the lip hanging out! I must have gotten that from SoSo! And poor Liam may have gotten it from me! At least I have proof that I'm not the only one that looks like a dork in pictures. It was hard work that required a lot of concentration!)
