Colt's first Christmas

Colt is the only present we asked for this year! I know he's going to kill me for this picture one day. I was trying to go all Anne Geddes, but it totally didn't work.
However, Ty surprised me and got me the camera I had my eye on. Thus, this post is very lengthy and has tons of pictures!!!
We headed to DFW for Christmas and had all of our family come visit us, rather than us take the tour of Texas (Ft Worth, Abilene, Houston, and... Hot Springs AR). THANK YOU SO MUCH to Chris and Kelly Baker for letting us stay in their home and using it as home base, so we didn't have to spend Christmas in a hotel! We had a fabulous Christmas and it was fun to have both sides of the family spend time together. Here is a recap of our trip in pictures:

Here is the first picture I took with my new camera: Uncle Andrew and Colt

Ty is playing with my sister's new iPhone. Boy is he jealous!

Granny Rae and her favorite grandson. We got her a Grandma picture frame, and of course she needed a new picture for it.

Grammy is holding Colt while he ate his first solid food. Yum... bananas!!

Chez and Cody got me a Magic Bullet so I can make shakes and puree Colt's baby food in a snap. Yes, I am planning to make his baby food myself :/

Colt received lots of nice gifts. Thank you to everyone! He opened so many gifts that by the end he was a pro at tearing off the wrapping paper.

Colt is upset because I wouldn't let him eat the wrapping paper.

We took a trip to the Gaylord Texan and took some family pictures. Here is the Dishman clan.

This is my mom and siblings. Thanks to everyone for driving over to see us!

Uncle Dusty is enjoying his new iPod Touch at the Gaylord. Such a stud!

We went to my Grandparent's house on Christmas Eve to see the extended family. Here is my cousin Sarah and her husband Travis, my brother and Grandad.

Colt FINALLY got to meet Aunt Debbie. She is the family member who always gives great, unique gifts. So thoughtful!

Alethea and Grandma J. Notice how Colt is mesmerized by the dog.

Aunt Debbie, Uncle Don and their 3-year-old sons with Grandad. I think Colt likes my Grandad's shiny head.

Here we are on the day we left for Tampa and Dad, Jennifer, and Ashley left for ITALY! Must say I am a bit jealous. Hope you guys are enjoying your trip. We had a great Christmas and it was fun to spend time with everyone. Hope you enjoyed your holiday as much as we did!

What a post. Great pics. Next year, you can let Colt try the wrapping paper, right?

I have to say...the bow on the butt picture is my favorite! (oh, and thanks for the advice for the plane ride...I thought about you on the plane!)

I love the new look of your blog!!! I'm also planning on making Jackson's baby food. Let me know if you have any great tips. We've only done rice cereal and bananas so far...he's not very interested.
