Family Time

Carter has now realized how much fun it is to stand up (all the time). All he wants to do is hold people's fingers and walk around.

Erica, Landon, and Kelsie are all home for Christmas. Look how happy Uncle Kyle is to have Landon home! He's weird.

Carter had his first taste of our delicious pasty dough. He's starting to enjoy trying a little bit of whatever we have for dinner.

Carter and Landon are having a lot of fun together. This was after I had to go back to work last week. Poor Lando looks tired.

I think he was tired because earlier that day we went to Jordan's Christmas Program. It was very entertaining, and Jordan looked quite beautiful.

This is Carter's teething face. We went to Sunburst on Friday, and when we came back on Sunday our little man had his first tooth!

My friend Ritter (Melissa) stopped by work on Friday to exchange gifts. Her little cutie Madisyn couldn't wait to open hers up!

Carter and Lando love to play with the same things at the same time. Carter has his favorite mouse ornament in his hand in this picture. Grandma let him take it off the tree - so nice!

This picture is funny. I love Landon's big eyes peeking over the edge. Carter gave him a puff for being so inquisitive.

Carter got this nice new travel seat for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Barsness. It's so cute; the black rubber parts are hippos. He enjoys having his legs hanging free as well!

Here's our spoiled little man at his first Christmas in Sunburst. He had quite a few presents to open!

He's checking out his giant Tonka trunk here. I'm sure he'll be pushing it around in no time. Carter also loved his big box of books. He's a good reader.

He was very good about checking everything out. He's got a busy ball choo choo and a peek-a-boo farm vying for his attention here. Everything was so cute!

Speaking of cute, our silly Laney decided to curl up in an empty box with some tissue paper. She's, of course, right next to Carter at all times!

Carter's cousins Colten and Breanne are modeling some of their new clothes. Breanne liked her sweatshirt a lot, and Colty looks very good in camo!

Carter had a good time with the wrapping paper and the dogs. He was completely awed by the size of Fancy I think. Josie liked to kiss him too when Laney wasn't trying to make her play!

Carter was very good, especially since he was getting his first tooth. He had a great time playing with Phil (as you can see)! He liked to copy him too.

Carter gave his Great-Grandma Bonnie some loves before we left - and Mary Jo too. She had a fabulous feast for us (as usual), and we all loved it. Carter had enjoyed some caramel roll that morning!

"Uncle Nate" was very good to Carter all weekend long. He even stooped way, way down to walk him around while Kyle and I opened presents. Carter is a lucky guy to have such nice relatives.

Carter and "Aunt Callie" had a lovely time too. She also got to walk around with him many times and sacrificed some of her delicious caramel rolls for him. See you Friday, Call.
