Hudson you make me smile

We have a toy nativity set and Hudson especially loves the camel or what he calls "mamel".  He took a nap with his mamel and it just made me smile seeing him like this.  

Also, he is all boy.  He loves all things mechanical and right now keys are some of his favorite things to play with.  We took the lock off a box we didn't need and gave him the lock and keys.  He was entertained for hours.

Every time I look at this ornament I can hardly keep from laughing.  This was the ornament he made in his class during my Bible study.  He does not look happy in the picture that was taken while he was strapped into the "buggy" aka the 6 person stroller.  I am sure this epic ornament will bring laughter in our home for years and years to come.

Our favorite time to go to Disneyland is the fall and Christmas seasons.  Hudson and I have been a few more times than Travis since we have gone a few times while Trav was at work.  

I love how God reminds us of Himself often through the simple things in life.  The last few times we have gone, Hudson has gone running for Minnie and Mickey.  He hasn't even seen their cartoons and yet, he was still so excited to see them.  I set him down and he went running straight in their direction.  He didn't notice their was a line of children waiting to see them.  He didn't care who was watching him.  He had one goal in mind... to get as close as he could to them.  I couldn't help, but to think that must have been how it was when Jesus said, " Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these".  I hope we run into the arms of God with that same unashamed adoration.  

After waiting our turn, Hudson finally had a turn to see Minnie... and what did he do?  He gave her a kiss...haha (definitely not the most sanitary thing):

 We also went one night with just Britt and Taylor:

Since Hudson was a newborn, my sisters have always loved carrying him in my baby carriers :)

Enjoying the snow at the end of the fireworks:

Hope you all are enjoying this holiday season!
