Early Christmas with Aunt April!!

My only sister, April, is home for a few weeks and we are so happy to see her! Ethan took to her right away. It might be because she and I look so much alike, or so we are told!

And can I tell you how much Ethan LOVES Hooch and Sadee, her dogs??? He just laughs and laughs when they are around. He loves to "chase" them all over the house although we keep them separated most of the time because Sadee loves to lick him all over! Sadee LOVES him, too. She is such the little mother and will run to him when ever he cries. If she can't get to him she will find one of us to make sure we are taking care of him. At night, she will sit next to his door and stick her head in to check on him. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen! Hooch likes Ethan, too, but not anything like Sadee.
Hooch is the bigger one with the black face and Sadee has the white face. They are both Boxers.

We had our early Christmas on Saturday. This is Ethan's first Christmas outside of Mamma so it's his first time to open gifts! He was really into the first gift, chewing on the corner.

Then chewing on the torn paper.
It's pj's!!!

After that first gift, we really had to push him to even be interested in opening any more gifts even though the next few were toys. He got several toys and lots of clothes!

And after all that what did he play with? The dogs ball. (This is a happy face!)
Then it was on to visit Santa at the Fire station! I wasn't sure how Ethan would react to a "jolly" old man in a red suite but he loved him. He couldn't take his eyes off of Santa!

Ethan got to sit on the old fire truck with Santa. We went to visit him one more time later that evening. I'll post the photos as soon as I get them.

Then on to the Christmas parade. "Aunt" Karla has a way with kids.

He lasted for about 15 mins before crashing.

In case you've never been to a parade in Oklahoma, here are just a few things you might see: An old car.
A tractorA trash truck.
And no band:( I was told the band was busy with a concert and couldn't be in the parade. It was lots of fun even without the band!Then it was home for Mexican food and Birthdays!! I made these White Chicken Enchiladas and they were yummy! We had tons left over and some how they got left in the oven overnight so we had to toss all of them :( Sad to not have any leftovers but we are still eating on the cheese dip! Thanks Aunt Kathy!
We had 3 birthdays that we celebrated: Grandma, Emily and Ethan.

Ethan wasn't too interested in eating his cupcake but he got good and messy!

I didn't get any pics of Boo, Lil Earl or Emily but Karla got some good ones. Check them out here.

We were missing Eli who will be home soon and AJ (April's husband in Iraq).

Merry Christmas AJ!! We will be sending you a goodie box soon.

We still have another Christmas and Birthday when Eli gets home in a few weeks. Can't wait to see you, Eli!
