On Christmas Evening, Jamie and I decided to turn part of our loft area into a toy room. It was fun to create a special place for Griffin and he loves it! We hung up the beautiful quilt that my friend Christina made for Griffin-it looks perfect. I planned on putting it on his toddler bed when we made that leap, but now I don't know if I will be willing to take it off of the wall!

Santa came to the farm and brought Griffin a tractor with a wagon. He loves to fill up the wagon with the building set that Uncle Chris gave him. Then he loves to tip it over! Griffin couldn't quite understand why he couldn't get in the tractor and drive it...check out the video!
Griffin and I spent two nights in Sandstone after Christmas with my Grandma. Griffin loved entertaining her and gave her lots of "mus" (kisses) and big bear hugs! Great Grandma gave him a cool new basketball hoop! We talked to Nonna, Poppa and Uncle Chris on the phone and Griffin took the phone, laid down and chatted! It was pretty cute!

We had Griffin open his gifts from Nonna, Poppa and Uncle Chris through video conferencing so that they could watch him. He was super excited about his new building set and musical instuments from Uncle Chris and his new wardrobe and toys from Nonna and Poppa. As you can see, he had fun putting everything to good use right away!!

Jamie and I were recently in San Diego (Jamie needed to go for a work conference). The weather was great and we really enjoyed our free time! We spent lots of time with another AD, John, and his wife Lori. I was also able to meet up with my good friend from college, Ann, who lives in LA. We missed Griffin a ton, but he sure had a good time at Grandma and Grandpa's house!
Griffin has been very helpful around the house lately. Here he is shown carrying around samples for blinds that we are going to install, taking out all of his PJs and towels just in case we needed them, helping me cook dinner (I finally had to contain him in his high chair and give him oven mitts for entertainment), and emptying out the laundry baskets so I'd have a head start on folding. I really appreciate all of his hard work!
