Christmas 2012

Either a Christmas hug or a Christmas chokehold.
It's either a loving moment between brothers or a pretty decent choke hold by Holden.  Let's go with the first one.

Something from the WWE was among the items in Holden's stocking. This sets up a theme of gifts.

Christmas Dancing

I can't tell you how many nights Leah and I spend sitting at home working on our hip hop dance moves.  It's good that Christmas has arrived so that we can show them off.
Although sometimes we do stop the crunchy holiday beats and go old school with a little Charleston.  It's how we do.

Thank you Santa Claus

After the unspeakable tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday, it seemed like a perfect night to be together as a family and make a good memory for the kids. Santa helped us achieve this goal. We had a nice night out with the boys and visited with, in my opinion, the best Santa Claus around at Jordan Creek Town Center.  The boys were excited to see Santa (well, Holden was at least - Maddux didn't seem to care one way or the other), we were able to get a nice picture to commemorate it and Leah and I were able to do something other than sit around watching the news asking ourselves "why".
Thank you Santa.

Santa's video message for Holden 2012

Santa Claus left a video message for Holden again this year.  This has become a tradition that Dad and Mom look forward to as much or more than Holden.  It will be interesting to see how (if?) Santa can leave different messages next year when Maddux is old enough to be aware of getting one.
