traveling to chicago and lake geneva!

We started out our holiday trip in Chicago.  Orson loved spending time reading and playing with Grandma...

Grandpa was always ready to goof around...

Aunt Marty came over every afternoon...

We enjoyed time with family...

Off we went to Lake Geneva.  Orson played in the snow for the first time, after this he agreed to wear a hat and mittens...

 Orson quickly adjusted to life at the lake...
"What do you mean Lucy's not allowed on the couch?"

Uncle Todd & Orson are both early birds and spent mornings being silly together...
Aunt Kristin knew how to make Orson giggle...
Aunt Tristan had a few gifts for the family...

Grandma & Aunt Kristin suited Orson up for a walk in the snow...

Orson brought a shopping cart and a bumble bee along on the adventure...

Orson loved the cold weather and the snow...
Here's Grandma, Cousin Millie, & Orson out on the frozen lake...

The cold weather was tiring...


There's nothing like the thought of presents to wake a kid up!

Christmas Eve with the sisters...

Orson's first gift of the night... an orange monster from Aunt Kris & Uncle Todd (we named him "Herman").

Daddio & Orson opened a few gifts...

Orson had a very "Thomas" Christmas...
Every gift was treasured (and Orson got a lot of gifts!)...

 
Orson loved handing out the gifts, here's a video... video


After gifts, Orson shared some ice cream with Grandma...  with Lucy & Millie looking on...

Aunt Marty helped wrangle Orson toward the bathtub...

Orson ended the night singing carols in the tub...

up next... Christmas Day and the Farm!
