MERRY CHRISTMAS- Santa was good to us

THe Peters family had a great Christmas with William. We spent Christmas Eve at my mom's house as is tradition- with mexican food, drinks, games and way too many presents as usual! We always overdo it. we had a slight problem though- my sister Wendy and her family were sick.......my poor nephew Michael ended up with Scarlett fever, which is basically like strep with a rash. The doctor originally misdiagnosed him, after he was already around the whole rest of the family earlier in the week. So they all had to stay home to get well and not spread it around. We missed them though. We still had a really good time eating more than our fill, drinking margarita punch and playing yahtzee!

The huge amount of presents at mom's and this is just some of it!



William of course loved the wrapping paper!

It wasn't enough to be on our laps, William had to be in the middle of the Yahtzee action- right up on the table.
William really loved his new red wagon from Mama and Papa. the girls- back row- me, cousin Nancy, sister Mandy, front row- Ally, Mom, Aunt MarionThe poor dog- William likes to roll on top of Sassy.Christmas morning- hello Elmo!His new table and chairs from Aunt Wendy and Uncle Mike. Christmas lunch with parents and GrandpaSomeone found the oreosJust a little after lunch wagon ride.
someone couldn't make it through lunch today-.....he crashed out midway through. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Decorated for Christmas

the house is all decorated for the holidays!















Santa's almost here!

We've been very busy getting ready for Christmas the past few weeks. William even decided to help cook!
William also disovered the recycling bin and a few cans to bang together.


William also loves the dog bed- nice and comfy and covered with dog hair!
He is also very helpful with wrapping gifts!

He is now discovering how to climb on things......he stands on his little chair and tries to climb onto the couch!


Posing with mommy!
someone also likes to try and climb the stairs (supervised) and play upstairs

He still loves his little red car

and the latest......he has learned to throw fits. yay! Face down, screaming and crying, then he scoots himself across the floor face down, getting rug burns on his nose.



Helping in the kitchen again

Christmas in the Park

We went to the local Christmas village on Sunday night to show Will all the lights and fun! He is really into lights- he actually says the word now! He points at the lights and fan in the house all the time. He seemed to have fun even though it was chilly. Mama came with us to see Will and here they are posing in front of a giant lit up tree!

Happy Turkey Day!

William had a busy turkey day weekend. He loved trying to help Mommy in the kitchen by playing in the cabinets, his new favorite pasttime! He also likes looking out the window by the front door.















William enjoyed thanksgiving at his Mama's house in Mesquite on Saturday- he was most fond of his great grandpa's walker......the boy loves anything he can push......so a walker, wheelchair, you know, whatever. Easy entertainment, right?















Then we spent Saturday at Grandma's house in Oklahoma and Will discovered the cabinets and dishes there too! William also played with his cousin, Christian who is 2 months younger than him- they liked looking out the window at the big kids playing outside.















William also loves his little chair----here he is in his 'too small for him' robe and just playing in it! He even likes to read his books while sitting in it- it almost looks like he sitting on the potty. lol

William is also bundling up for the winter in his hat And check out his cute top 4 teeth coming in all the way now!
