"Go back to sleep!" I want to tell it. There's sure to be some cold (and maybe snow/ice?) coming!

Ryan got some bath paints from his godparents, Cory and John. They have trumped all the other bath toys as Ryan wants only to paint in the tub now. Thank you!
Then, Scott's Christmas gift from my sister, Katy arrived. She added to our train collection with a new boxcar and there was a bonus- it was a cattle car complete with four cows figures!We're having a bit of trouble getting them into the cattle car (not pictured above), but they seem to like riding in this other open air car (haven't been operating trains long enough to know its name, but we'll get there!). Thanks Katy!

Then there is our happy boy who now wears "big boy pants." He's been interested in this since the summer, but we've been slow to do it all out because of our traveling and being away from home. At this point, he's having few, if any accidents (made it through the whole Christmas trip with only some minor ones- none on the drive!) and still wearing diapers to sleep. We're so proud!
In other Ryan news, it was an artsy Christmas for the boy. He got lots of crayons, markers, play dough and an easel from us, so he is constantly putting all of this to work. "Draw with me, Mommy," he says. He's even using scissors! However, we've had to put those up because he wants to use them all the time and I'm not sure he understands yet that they could hurt him.

Some updates: Terps beat Purdue 24-7. Ryan and I made it home safe on Saturday evening. A 12 hour drive from Charlotte (although we gained an hour) and 11 pit stops! Such is life with potty training.
I got some more train pictures from my mom to share:
Ryan and I on the turntable at the roundhouse and on a caboose.
We spent New Year's Eve with our friends that live around the corner from us. Ryan played with his buddy Arlan, we played Guitar Hero on their Playstation, and after the kids went to bed, we rang in midnight twice- Eastern Time and Central Time! Then we walked home.
Hope you had a happy and uneventful New Year!
