catching up again

You'd think I would learn my lesson and post regularly so I don't have to keep playing catch-up, but that just doesn't seem to happen. So here is a photo-heavy post for you to catch up on the past month or so.

Ryan's second time bowling - was contemplating having his b-day party at the bowling alley because he had so much fun, but I think we're nixing the party this year and getting Ry a "big park" for the backyard - that is all he is asking for for Christmas, so how can we resist? ;-)

Thanksgiving found us at Nana and Papaw's for lunch, where Ryan loved working his first "big boy puzzle" (ie, not wooden with holes to put the pieces in).

A funny hat he made at daycare.

After lunch, we headed to Grandma and Grandpa Keen's house on the far southeast side of town. We all had fun playing a basketball version of skee ball down in the basement!

The Sunday after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree! We switched all of our ornament hooks over to ribbon so I wouldn't have to be paranoid about hooks this year! It was much easier for Ryan to help us out that way, too.

We headed over to Brownsburg's Winter Wonderland party at the Rec Center - it was okay. Ryan enjoyed petting the reindeer and played a couple of games, but mostly liked people-watching at the top of the bleachers. :-)

Ryan's Christmas party at daycare was on the 17th, so we spent the evening before making yummy pretzel hugs!

On the 20th, we headed over to the Moose Lodge for the children's Christmas party. They give pretty nice gifts and Ryan got a stocking full of candy, an apple, and an orange, and ... a helicopter! I don't think they could have picked out a more perfect gift, and he hasn't stopped playing with it since!

Yesterday, my Mom and I took Ryan to the Indiana State Museum for their "free day" for the 12 Days of Christmas (thanks for the info, Jen!). Ryan got to ride on a real choo-choo (it was a replica of the one they used to have at L.S. Ayres, for those of you who may remember). Mom took some video of us riding the train, but it is too long to post.

Now Ryan and I are (hopefully) enjoying two weeks at home together - I'm on vacation until the 5th, yippee! Today is dentist day, and tomorrow our holiday celebrations begin with the Keen side of the family in the afternoon. Christmas morning will be at home, and then we'll head over to my Mom's for lunch. After that - full-time potty-training! Santa may need to bring Ryan some more undies, just in case 12 pairs aren't enough. :-) Next week we're planning to enjoy Peewinkle's Christmas Puppet Show, and hopefully veg at home a bit. Merry Christmas everyone!
