The girls and the cute two little guys on Christmas Eve.
Conner's Christmas PJ's from the Grandparents.
They got matching track outfits, and they were so excited as you can see. : )
Conner and Mom watching everyone open their PJ's.
Here's all the goods Christmas morning before all the kids came and attacked. Santa really loaded us up this year. The picture really doesn't do it justice.
Jess just showing off his new tatoos. A really cool Santa left these in his stocking. They went really well with his guitar hero that he got from my family. I am super excited for the gifts that Jess' parents gave us. We got a Tom Tom GPS and a 72 hour kit. We didn't have a 72 hour kit yet, so I was super excited to know that now we'll be prepared for atleast 72 hours! : ) I got Jess some new Nikes, and some other little things because we both agreed to not go over board on each other this year. I guess that he completely forgot about our agreement, because he got me a new camera! : ) I am still so super excited. He got a Nikon D40. I love taking pictures, and now I'll have to learn all the new fun things that I can do with this camera. He even got me a bigger lense to go with it! I was so excited, I almost started to cry with joy!
All the empty boxes kept Conner pretty busy.
After our present opening at the Walters, we made our way over to my family's house for some more present opening and fun. Here's Conner checking out Aunt Taylor's new doll house. I'm not really sure what he was reaching for.
Jess loves loves loves his new guitar hero. It was such a hit with him and all his brothers. Even me and Jess' sister Kelli got in on some of the action while the kids napped. It is pretty addicting. Jess keeps telling me that he can't wait to rock out together when we get home. I really think that those tatoo sleeves really make the rocker. : ) I got some fun stuff too! Santa brought me a photo printer, some fun stuff for my kitchen, makeup, and some fun cute Lia Sophia jewelry. It will be lots of fun to get back home and start using all our new fun gifts.
After a good Christmas brunch we all headed out for a good time at the bowling alley. Here's Jess sporting his new coat from my parents.
Conner just enjoying the little ride, and my attempt to keep him busy.
Conner wanted so bad to do what everyone else was doing, so Jess helped him enjoy his first time bowling.
The kids loved bowling. Here's Madison and Preslee waiting for their turn. What cuties!
Carson just enjoying some root beer.
Here's my attempt to try to get a cute picture of Conner by the tree before our Christmas day came to a close. We had a yummy Christmas dinner that night which brought our lovely Christmas day to an end. It makes me sad to think that we have to wait a whole year until Christmas 2008, but Christmas 2007 was a huge success.
We all went and enjoyed some lunch at good old Bar B Que Depot. Yummy!
Of course where else would we find him, but on top of something. He so loves to climb anything and everything. I guess he was probably trying to figure out his escape route.
Emmet and Conner love playing in boxes. I swear he would play in one all night if we let him.
Great Grandma and Grandpa Moberg sent him these way cute cowboy boot slippers. I love love them!
Hangin out with Dad.
Thanks to Grandma Moberg for getting Conner these way cute 1st birthday socks, and he also got a cute shirt that matches them.
Conner and all the goods. We got him a cute little cowboy hat that I found when I went to go and get paper plates and napkins at the Paper Factory. He wouldn't keep it on for very long though, so this picture was probably attempt 38 to get a good one.
It was pretty fun opening presents. He did really good. I wasn't sure if he would be interested in it or not, but he figured it out after the first couple.
Showing off his new outfit. I think that his face is hilarious.
His scary rocking horse. We have made some progress. He does now sit on it if it's not making noise. I especially love Uncle Ryan's face in the background of this picture.
Conner's way cute car. It will be fun to have at the house. It will probably keep him busy long enough for me to get something done, and that's awesome whenever that happens.
I'm not a pro cake decorator or anything, but I thought that the cake turned out pretty cute.
He wasn't to sure what to do with the lit candle though, so Dad helped him out.
Conner is our big eater. He eats mostly anything that you put in front of him, especially sweet stuff. I thought that he would just attack the cake, but who knows I guess maybe he's not a cake person like his mom. He just kind of poked at it for awhile.
I guess Jess couldn't take it any longer, so he grabbed the cake and shoved it right into Conner's little face. Poor guy!
He started to get a little partied out after awhile. Looking back though I think that his first birthday was pretty successful.
