1st Family Membership Visit To The Zoo

Jay got the family a year’s membership to the Philadelphia Zoo for Christmas. Today the weather was supposed to be great, so we went for the first time. We also asked Mee-Maw if she wanted to come and she was excited to join us.
We only stayed for about 2 hours, but we did see a lot of animals.
Chase’s favorite part of the zoo were the diggers at the construction site.
We can’t wait to go back again many more times in the coming year!

CARS, CARS, CARS!

Chase and his many Cars characters watching the movie, Cars.

Addison's Birthday Party

Tonight we celebrated Addison’s birthday and Scott and Gwen’s house. The meal was tasty and so was the cake.
After eating, it was time to open the presents.
Our favorite part of the evening was when the family joined in a marathon race around the house.

Jay's Parent's Christmas With The Myers Family

This evening we went to Jay’s parent’s house for dinner and to finally celebrate Christmas with the Myers family. After eating, it was time for Missy, Tyler, Kayla and Emily to open their presents. Grump and Mee-Maw also got to open a few presents.
Chase was very excited because the Myers’ gave him 2 packs of Disney Cars toys. We had a good laugh at first because Grump told Chase that the cars stayed in the container. He tried rolling them a few times, but we then let him off the hook and opened them so he could play.

One other funny part of the evening was when Mee-Maw got out her dancing snowman. Chase and Kayla have some really good moves.

Family Christmas

We were very excited to celebrate Christmas this year with Chase. Last year he had only been with us for about 2 months and we were unsure what he liked. This year was very different…Chase liked anything from the movie, Cars. When we woke up Christmas morning, we took chase, downstairs but did not show him the presents by the tree.
Instead, we had him open small stocking stuffer presents by his little tree.
We then had him walk into the other room where we had Lego Cars set up for him to play with.

We did have one more character from the movie, Mack hidden from him under the couch. He had been asking for Mack for months now and when he saw that he got Mack, his reaction was priceless.

While Chase played, we opened up our presents.
The big family present from Jay was a year’s membership to the Philadelphia Zoo.

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Thank you to Dan, Elizabeth and Ethan Rosenfeld for donating the used Lego Disney Cars toys.  Chase loves them a lot!

Grump And Mee-Maw Visit Christmas Day

When we finished opening up our presents, we got a call that Mee-Maw and Grump were on their way over to our house. They came in with a lot of presents, including ones from Josh, Wendy and the girls.
Mee-Maw and Grump stayed for about an hour, but then we had to leave to go to Griff and Barb’s house. Thanks Mee-Maw, Grump, Josh, Wendy, Madalyn and Bailey. Merry Christmas!
