Christmas at the Fireshouse

Dennis was able to trade with a good friend of ours so that he could be home on Christmas Eve for my family's festivities, and then work Christmas Day so his friend could be with his family. So Ty & I came to visit. Ty had just fallen asleep on the way up, and surprisingly stayed asleep when we got there even after seeing the firetrucks.
So precious.
I love baby feet.

Dennis got a run while we were there. Ty was excited to run up to Dennis as soon as he got back in the firetruck. It's always so exciting for me to watch him rush off to a scene. He's such a hero.
"Ok, I gotta check this thing out."

Dennis showing him around.
"Oooo, a flashlight."
This time, Dennis was at the firehouse where they keep their rescue boats. Ty enjoyed playing in it.

Gotta check out everything.

How many kids can say they grew up playing cars with their daddy in a firehouse bay?

Christmas with Ty

We're all set up and ready!
Ty went to his grandparents so we could have time to get things put together.
Here's his Big Boy bed! We moved the crib into the new nursery and set his bed up for when he comes home.
He's home! And so excited to see his new chair :)
"Oooo...what's this ma?"
He LOVES Dora & Diego right now.

Dennis & Ty have been making lots of forts with blankets lately. So we decided to get him a tent for Christmas.
Markers! Washable, of course. Thanks to Mrs Rosario and Miss Tori, Ty has become very good at holding writing utensils the correct way. It's amazing to watch him learn.
"Oh wow!"
And for the big finale, we took him to his room to see his new bed. He was so excited to be able to get up and down all by himself.

Checking out the light on top.
"Peek a boo!"
"Okay, get out. I'm ready for a nap."
We had a great time. It was so much fun this year and I'm sure will be more and more exciting in years to come.
After our fun-filled afternoon at home, we went to my parent's house for the Dillman's Christmas :)
