Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Thompson Family!
This holiday season was very busy for our family. After a trip to Las Vegas, we spent the holidays in Lubbock, TX. We left on the 23rd and travelled in cool temperatures and rain that eventually turned into snow. We had a very white Christmas. I didn't capture any snow pictures, because it was too cold and icy to go outside! But we had a wonderful time sharing the holidays with our family. This year was very special because we had Collier in our lives. He had a wonderful first Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

We spent Christmas Eve with Mimi, Granddad, Granna J, Unlce Ted, Aunt Jalisa, and Alayna. Here is Call with his great grandmother, Mimi.

Here is Call on Christmas morning playing with his toys from Santa.

Trying to get the perfect picture. It took several of us to get him to sit up, smile, and look at the camera.

Before he toppled over!

On Christmas day we went over to my Aunt Vickie's house to spend the day with my dad and his family. Call was Santa for the day.

HO HO HO! MERRY CHRISTMAS! Whenever I say that to Collier, and tickle his belly, he laughs at me.

On Sunday after Christmas, we were back in Round Rock to spend Christmas with Adam's parents. Here is Call in one of his new gifts from his Grandpa and Grandma Thompson.

Call was helping his Grandma Audrey open her gifts.
We had so much fun spending the days filled with cheer, great food, football, and family. We are so greatful for the blessings that God has given us this year. We cannot thank Him enough for the gift of our own son, who reminds us everyday of the miracles of God and his creation. We hope your 2009 was as good to you as it was to us!

4 Months Old!

You will have to forgive me on staying up to date! I realize that as I post this my son will be five months old on Thursday. I can't believe it!! Things have been so crazy with the holidays. So last month a couple of days before Christmas, Call turned 4 months old. He is so much fun. He loves to play on the floor with his toys. He has the cutest smile and it lights up my heart every time he smiles and grins at me. We are having a great time as parents, even on the hard days when our baby doesn't want to sleep. Here are some 4 month old pictures.
He is not so sure about this photo session.

Loving the floor and playing on the Baby Einstein mat.

He is now able to hold himself up on his arms when he is on his belly.
