Happy Holidays

The holidays are certainly a busy time of year. I love the season though. I was so excited for Christmas this year. I can't believe it's already passed!!
Tanner has been doing so well with therapy. Especially with sitting. Sonny, his OT, said he should be be sitting unsupported within the month. VERY EXCITING!!! His PT showed us some new positions that he can sit in. He actually does this on his own already. I was really surprised because I thought this position would be harder for him. He nailed it though.

Tanner has also been putting weight on his arms which we have been working on for a long time.

The Saturday before Christmas we had a massive amount of snow. 23.5 inches to be exact. A new record around here. Of course we had to go play in the snow. I love this picture of carter and I....even though the wind was blowing right in our faces. Here's Tyler loving the snow!

We had different family member's visiting all week from my home town since we couldn't make it home for Christmas this year. So, the boys got gifts all week long. They were thrilled to say the least. This was a Christmas/birthday gift from Jackie and Poppy.
Tyler with a pile of presents.
I swear Tanner has gotten so long in just a short amount of time. I walked into the living room when Justin was holding him and he looked so long so I took a picture. Justin isn't a little guy. He's 6'1 so you can get an idea of how long Tanner's getting.
The boys were being awfully quiet downstairs in the playroom so I snuck down to see what they were "up to". This is what I saw. Tyler said Carter asked to sit on his lap and watch TV. They are so cute.
Justin and our nephew Luke. He's such a cute kid. This what it looked like Christmas morning. The left side is Tyler's, middle Tanner's, and right Carter's. I don't know what we'll do WHEN we have a little GIRL cause there's only three sides. I guess we'll have to put the tree in the middle of the room to have four sides:)

Here's a bunch of random shots throughout our festivities. Here's Tanner with his first pair of Nikes.

The day after Christmas is Carter's birthday. He turned 3 this year but his party isn't until January 9th. On his birthday we did get a small cake, sing to him, and give him his present. He loved his Buzz Lightyear scooter. Check out his Woody jammies:) Haha!
Thank you for looking at my overload of pictures! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!
