Christmas Vacation-First Tooth- Crawling

We started our Christmas vacation going to Arkansas.  We had such a great time. It's been a while since the whole Dennett family (Travis, me, Tyler, Preston, and Carsen) has gone on a road trip. Carsen is getting better riding in the car.  We spent 3 days hanging out with the Wolf family. Carsen was all over the hotel in his walker. Everyone knew him by name by the time we left.
Here's Carsen taking the wheel.  " Where to now?"
He's so advance. Driving at 6.5 months. :-)

When we got back from Arkansas we had to make a quick trip to see Santa Claus. Carsen did real good. He didn't cry at all. Tyler and Preston were eager to tell Santa what they needed. They were hoping it wasn't too late.  It was 5:30 on Christmas Eve. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. That is how the Dennetts to things. :-)

Later that evening we went over to Teresa and David Robertson (my cousins) for a holiday feast Italian style. Teresa really out did herself. Her food was absolutely delicious. Yummy!!!!!
Carsen hung on for as long as he could then just passed out. He was excited about Santa's arrival. 

Carsen's first Christmas...

He woke up to more than one surprise that morning. He got his first tooth! And there is no way he will let you look at it. Much less take a picture of it. He's real sensitive about it.  He loved ripping into the presents and then eating the paper. Thanks to everyone for your gifts. We really had an awesome day! It was our first Christmas waking up with all the boys.  A real blessing. 

Mommy's present taste good!

"Can someone get my glasses... I think it says it's from Santa Claus!"

Later that night we went over to Lara and Justin's house to exchange presents. It seems that every time we go over there Carsen has a first. Well once again he did. Carsen crawled for the first time on all fours. You can hear Lara's baby in the background.

Myssy's Christmas Concert

Hello Everyone! Merry Christmas!!! 

I'm such a proud sister... I just have to share this with you.  On December 19th my sister Myssy had a Christmas concert.  I was very excited because I haven't heard my sister sing in such long time. And if you know my family we love to entertain the masses.  Myssy is such a talented singer.  I knew this would be an fun event but I has no idea what an emotional wreck I would be. She has such a way of grabbing your heart when she sings.  This is not a professional recording but you can get the picture of the message. I hope you enjoy this much as much as I did.  BTW... she just had a baby 4 weeks prior. 

Just click on the title of the song.

This is my Dad's favorite Christmas song. She sings it every time like she is singing it to him.  

I thought this was the cutest song about a Christmas puppy. Enjoy!

This song had a special meaning to me. I think I cried the entire time during the song. You can tell at the end, Myssy had a hard time getting the words out.  You'll understand once you listen. 
It didn't help that I was sitting on the front row. :-)

My new favorite Christmas Song. 

Thanks Myssy for reminding me what Christmas is all about!  I love you!! Amanda

Watch your volume on the following video. It's my clip and I was sitting  very close.
Myssy and her little girl Peyton. She is going to be just like her mama!

My famous Father-in-Law! LOL!

Here's Travis's dad, Larry, in a commercial.  For those of you who know him this will really crack you up.

Carsen LOVES the bath.   I think it is absolutely his favorite thing to do.
 This is usually time he spends with Daddy.  He just adores his Daddy. I'm not jealous at all. :-)
He's as white as the tub! LOL! He gets that from me. 

Carsen in the Christmas Spirit.

This is our K-State look. 

I'm so close....

Halfway to the First Birthday!

Carsen is 6 months old today. This kid is really growing. I'm not kidding. He weighed 17lbs and 11.5 ozs (50%). Here's the kicker. He's at 28 inches (90%). That is 3 more inches than his 4 month appointment. I guess  he is going to be tall like his Daddy. The doctor also felt 2 teeth buds. Yea!

His latest venture is the walker. It only took him 2 days to figure it out. Now he is all over the place. It's time to start baby proofing the house. I've already had to plug up a few outlets and wrapped up the cords from the blinds. He loves anything hanging.  We are really starting to see his personality come out.  I have a feeling he is going to be a rambunctious little boy. He definitely knows how to get your attention. 

Shout out to Grandma Ulli and Grandpa Larry for the early Christmas present! Carsen LOVES it. Thank you!

High Chair and Singing....

Carsen has now moved into his high chair. The days of the Bumbo Chair are OVER.  They were nice while they lasted.  I just couldn't keep his concentration in it. He was constantly wanting to grab anything around him.  Nothing was safe. He loves the high chair. He even has a high chair song he likes to sing. Here is a clip of the song while Grandma Ulli  is feeding him.  Enjoy!

"I'm ready to eat Mommy!'
