Picture with Santa (Father Frost)

We took William to see Santa also know as Father Frost where he is from. He did really well, except for trying to crawl off Santa's

His shirt says Santa's Helper, but Santa is covering it up!

Merry Christmas soon

We had William's first Christmas pictures taken on the 18th. Our appointment time fell right when his nap time should be so needless to say he was not a happy camper after a few shots of him. Although the Christmas tree one turned out great. Then the guy doing the shots picked up a stuffed dog hand puppet and it barked jingle bells. This caused a melt down. I don't know if William has ever seen a dog, I would think probably not. But I know he hasn't seen one that barks jingle bells lol. At least the guy did this after the Christmas shot.

Here is his Christmas photo

Is he not the most handsome thing!

A shot mama loves.

We are home!

We made it! After two very long flights and an overnight in Chicago, we arrived in San Antonio Thursday afternoon. Our flight from Almaty to London was eventful. There were three other families with their little ones and all of the little ones were sick. We took turns running to the bathroom with them. The flight from London to Chicago was great! William slept through most of that flight. He is a great flyer, he would laugh when we took off and landed. Everyone commented on how great he was through all of the flights. He was not fussy at all. We went through customs in Chicago, handed them our top secret envelope and they pronounced William the newest American Citizen. It was great.

We are so happy to be back. We were met at the airport by Grandma and Grandpa, Leah, Lauren and Brandon.

Lauren and Brandon had made signs welcoming William home. They were great. We only had a slight melt down when everyone converged on him at once. Then he got used to them and he was fine.

We are still catching up on the different time zones and sleep patterns. William is getting used to being up more during the day and I think getting his body readjusted.
