December - Owen's Dedication

Owen's dedication at our church was Sunday morning, December 18th, 2011.

He was all smiles as we waited in the hallway with the other families for our time to come in the service (and he kept trying to crawl/walk up and down the hall!)

We were the first of the 3 families that Fischer is insisting on standing on the same step as he did when he sang in church with Kids Praise a few weeks before...I tried to get him to come down, but gave up after a little while!

Pastor Bob speaking to us and the church about our role in raising Owen to be a man of God.

During the prayer, Owen realized that my good friend, Sabrina, was the one on the front row taking pictures, so he started smiling at her and the camera :)

Receiving a New Testament and a letter written by Pastor Bob to Owen for him to read when he accepts Christ one day. The two ladies behind him are Denise and Stacy, two of the most wonderful nursery/preschool directors a church could ever have!

The Henry Family! With Fischer making his typical goofy smile for the camera :)

December - Miscellaneous

We had the privilage of babysitting our neighbor's baby girl while they attended her daddy's work Christmas party...this is baby Ava and she is a doll!!!

Owen wasn't quite sure what to think of her...he pretty much kept his distance!

Fischer was so excited...ever since we had Owen, he has LOVED all babies! He told me he was going to help me take care of her. Here he's sharing a toy with her :)

Ava liked Fischer the best of any of us...he could really get her to smile and laugh!

Here he shared ALL the toys with her...she's buried under there somewhere! Don't worry, I kept a close eye on her and dug her out :)

Another fun day with one of Fischer's best friends...Aaron lives just down the road from us, so we get to have him over quite often!

Fischer pulled these down from the mantle and did this while Dustin and I were eating dinner...he thought he was sooo funny!

Annual visit to the Fantasy of Lights...My boys in front of the Peter Pan display.

It wouldn't be Christmas in Texas without seeing the cowboy on the covered wagon with his stuffed dog and teddy bear with Santa Clause standing guard while a panda rides a toy horse in the background!

The 3 Little Pigs was Fischer's favorite...we visited this display several times and had to sing the song all the way home!

Owen learned to use a spoon by himself :)

He loved to dance to the Christmas tunes :)

This video is just cute b/c about halfway through he sees the camera and says, "Cheese!" (it also shows what he likes to do with the alphabet magnets, which explains why they have been put away).

November - Owen's First Birthday!

Nana rented this for Owen's birthday party...Fischer couldn't have been happier! It was rented from 10:00-4:00, but apparently the owner didn't have anything else going on that day, because he let us have it from 8:00-7:00! Needless to say, Fischer slept GOOOOD that night!

Fischer is taking pictures (backwards) of the party with his new camera :)

Nana filled the bouncy house with Owen's favorite things...balls!

Happiest boy in the world!

This is Fischer's friend, Eva who came to play too...she was the 2 month old baby in the stroller at Fischer's 1st b-day party, if you recall his pictures from 3 years ago :)

Break time!

Lunch time!

Presents!! He wasn't sure what to do with them...he was only 1 month old at Christmas :)

Brother decided to "help" him play with his new toys!

What?? Clothes?? Yucky!!

Thanks for the fun toy Eva!

It was a monster themed party...

Monster cookies (Auntie and Mama made these), monster cake, monster plates...even the beach balls in the bouncy house were monster faces!

The Henry family looking nice...

The Henry family the way we usually look :)

Ready for cake...hurry up and take the picture! (most of the people at our party were grown-ups...aunts, uncles, Granny, etc).

He wasn't sure what to do at first...

Finally taking a little taste...

Daddy helping him get going...while Fischer and Eva sample a little :)

Finally digging in a little more...

But what he really wanted was a spoon...then he really got at it!!

It was a very hot November day

Thanks, Auntie, for taking all these wonderful pictures of my birthday party!!

Chinese Jammies

We took some pictures of the boys in the Chinese Jammies that Auntie brought home the summer before Owen was born...they're so adorable!

I am NOT going to smile!

Okay, I'll smile like this :)

Owen trying to figure out how to sit on the stool.

This is Owen posing for the camera :)

So silly!

This is my button.

And this is my belly!

Playing peekaboo!

Got one to smile this time!

Finally, both of them smiling at the camera!!

Fischer really wanted his picture with the dog too.

I'm cute and I know how to use it!
