Owen's 1st Christmas

I can hardly believe Christmas is over. Too bad the snow isn't (even though we need it). Luckily we have all the memories we made. It was wonderful to experience Christmas with Owen even though he did get bit overwhelmed and tired. Saturday the 23rd we attended the Olsen Christmas party at Rebecca's grandparents home. Owen got some cute pajamas from Great Grandpa & Grandma and his cousin Chase. Grandpa Olsen & Grandma Maxine gave him a toy telephone.

Christmas Eve we had the Vest Christmas party. After we ate, Santa came and gave each kid a teddy bear. Owen sat on his lap and didn't cry at all but he was squirming and grr-ing like he does when he's tired. Then Grandma dressed up the grandkids for Grandpa's reading of the Christmas story. Owen was baby Jesus and he settled down a bit since he had all his cousins around him. Owen got a musical interactive table from Grandpa & Grandma and a interactive book from his cousin Eloise.

Christmas morning was wonderful. Owen was all rested and it was quiet once again. We helped him open his presents first. He got a push-behind walker, a fire truck toy, a couple shirts, a pair of pajamas, a pair of pants, a blanket, a couple picture books, and some wagon wheel treats. Great Grandpa & Grandpa Luthy gave him a ride-on horse. We put him on it and his legs went crazy as we pushed him. He was kicking so fast. He loved it. Barry got a digital universal remote, temple bag, and belt. I got a watch, a couple DVD chick flicks, Reba's new CD, the new Harry Potter video game and desk calendar. But most definately Owen is the best Christmas present of all.
