We decided to take some pictures at my parents house to use for our Christmas cards.
We put Kaleb under the Christmas tree and he loved reaching for the lights and ornaments.
Our ward Christmas party that year was a candy theme. This picture doesn't show it but the place was decked out with fabric draped from the ceiling and elaborate decorations everywhere.
Kaleb was still too little to be scared of Santa in this picture. He didn't mind sitting on his lap at all.
Kaleb loved to make noise with my piano. He was just learning to crawl at this point so it was more of a scoot forward to get where he wanted to go. And he learned to crawl backwards first. He would get on all fours but only go backwards for a couple of weeks. He was always stuck under the couch or a chair because he couldn't see where he was going.
My dad was playing a game on the computer and Kaleb would watch the screen so intently so he decided to put the headphones on him to see what he would do. He had this look on his face the whole time they were on him. He couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from.
All bundled up and fast asleep.
We had a great Christmas that year. It was small and quiet with the three of us. My parents gave Kaleb a toy activity center you sit in and scoot around on that we still have. All 3 kids have loved it. Kaleb was more into wrapping paper than anything else though. I remember there were plenty of presents with some wrapping paper already torn off come Christmas morning.
Here's a video I made back in 2004 of December 13-25, 2004.
