Christmas 2008

Christmas this year was so much fun! Mom and Dad drove down to visit us for the week. We were SO glad that they were able to come. The time went by much too quickly, but we savored every day together. Hampton loved playing with his MawMaw and PawPaw and enjoyed getting lots of attention (and sympathy, when needed) from them. We went on an outing to Fort Lauderdale to get some pictures of banyan trees, which are native to this area and are quite unique. Mom did some painting by the water, just off Las Olas Boulevard. It is so pretty down there!

Christmas morning was so much fun. Hampton tired of opening gifts once he found a favorite toy or two to play with. We shared our day with our friends the Evers family - Richard, Becky, Hannah, and Aubrey. They opened their presents here, and we all enjoyed a HUGE (did I say "huge"?) steak dinner together. After everyone snoozed a little, we settled in for a lazy afternoon. As you can see, the presents were plentiful, but most of all - the blessings of being surrounded by family and friends outweighed all of the gifts. We are looking forward to a great new year!

P.S. Hampton is walking now!!! I'm going to try to post a video soon of his walking. Even though he took his first steps on Nov. 19, he is walking all alone and everywhere now! YEA!
