Here are the last of the pictures from our Christmas visit to Chicago, in no particular order. I’m feeling extra lazy tonight. We took Brendan sledding but unfortunately it was –10 degrees with the wind chill so it wasn’t as enjoyable as we hoped.
Getting to open presents for the second time that day was super exciting for Brendan, especially since he got more Thomas trains and tracks. He was in toddler heaven.
This was a small miracle- the only other time that Brendan has willingly laid down on our laps was when he was extremely sick, so we were shocked when he snuggled up to Chris. That’s how tired her was after chasing Sam the cat around the house all day.
In other cat news, my parents found out that their other cat, Oso, has anxiety problems that was most likely caused by Brendan’s visit. No joke. The poor cat and my poor parents. I just hope Oso doesn’t have to go on medication for it (seriously).
And of course we had to have an early birthday celebration. Brendan had a hard time blowing out the candle and it was so funny to watch him try so hard.
Since our trip, I’ve taken my camera out of its case exactly one time, so I don’t really have anything new to share. I seem to have lost my drive to take lots of photos and blog about them but I’m sure that will change once the weather warms up and we can head outdoors again. I’m so ready for winter to be over!
