Last week it snowed!! It was crazy, we woke up to a blanket of white everywhere. It was beautiful. I don't particularly love snow, but when I know it's a two or three day affair I can handle it. Rusty took Andrew out to play in it, he looked ridiculous. We don't really have snow appropriate wear for Andrew, so Rusty put him in a onsie, two pairs of pants, socks, a jacket, a hat, mittens, and then he put his (Rusty's) snowboarding mittens over Andrew's legs. SO FUNNY. Anway, here are a few pictures from that day. Also, a couple pictures showing Andrew getting up on his papasan chair. The kid learned to crawl, and then about two minutes later he was able to pull up on everything. Now he's able to get to full standing, using our coffee table. What a disaster.

Cookie Jar

I had to pull all the stuff out of my bathroom so that some repainting could be done in there. I put all the towels, floor mats, and baskets into our bedroom so that they'd be out of the way. I left the door open and walked away for a minute, this is what I found when I came back in. Does he look like a kid who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, or what?? He was in there laughing, so I knew he had found something entertaining that he probably shouldn't be playing with.

*Sorry if this embarrasses the male readers*

Christmas Finished

Here are the rest of the Christmas pictures. Grandma Tounget sent a box SO BIG that you could barely see Andrew over it. I love this picture, and Andrew LOVES his toolbench that she bought. One of the songs on it makes me want to tear my hair out, but andrew can't get enough of it. haha. Laura has decided that it's up to Grandmas to buy the noisemakers!! Thanks Laura, we love you very much. The other presents that he's opening is from some of Rusty's regulars from Chili's. Crazy right? They are so sweet, and we can't wait to put Andrew in the ADORABLE little sweater vest that they got him. The one with my mom is just too cute. I don't know how it didn't make it into the other post. Mom rocked Andrew to sleep more in the two weeks we were there than I have since he was born. She's a sucker for snuggles.

Baby Pin-Up

here's a funny picture that I didn't post with the Christmas pictures. How funny are all those rolls?

Tousnykai McChristmas

Tounget, Snyder, Kaiser, McBeth Christmas!
We were all in San Antonio for the last two weeks visiting. Rusty and I had such a great time watching everyone love on our boy. Or as Audine would say, "Mashing on him". (I know, Texans are crazy) I have some more Christmas pictures from other family's presents that I'll add over the next couple of days. For now you'll just have to be satisfied with this bunch! :)

This is my beautiful sister, Angela. Andrew was watching the pups run around the back yard. He LOVES those dogs, and one of them really loves him too!

That rolling Moose he's chewing on is the same toy that me and Angela chewed on when we were his age.

Jake and Andrew, screaming at each other. Very cute.

This is the dog that LOVES andrew. Tina was so funny. She would come close to Andrew, lay down, roll onto her back, then get as close as she could to lick him. Here's an action shot.

Best Friends. Andrew needs a dog.

I promise he liked this. It's one of his new favorite things to throw himself upside-down in your arms. It may be the cause of our first ER visit. I'll keep you posted.

Jake and Andrew sing songs together. It's not pretty, but it's adorable nonetheless.

That's right, we're eating icecream... outside. It's January and we were outside eating frozen goodness. Man I love Texas. Sorry Mom that I chose the one with your eyes closed. It's dang hard to get a picture of five people all looking normal.

Or just two people I guess. HAHA

Andrew could live in the Ergo.

Last day with Aunt Della and Uncle Jake.

My mom and her grandboy. She couldn't love him more if she tried

this is Rusty's uncle Dennis. This is the first picture of him awake on this blog! Dennis, Audine, and Roy made their way to SA for a couple of days to see us. THANK YOU GUYS!! WE love you very much.

Uncle Roy and my boy.

This is Audine. I promise her mashing left no permanant damage!!

Here are the men-folk looking over the map.

Rusty got up to go to the bathroom, so Andrew stole his seat. What a big boy I have. If Delta wasn't so desperate to overbook their flights, we may have left him like this the whole time!

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year everybody.
