Christmas Tree Hunt of 2013

Tom, Heston, and I headed back up to West Point to cut down a Christmas tree with my parents again this year. Last year when we went, Hes was only 3 months old and I can't believe how much he has grown, I mean, he was walking this time, like a big boy!

Hes likes to act so serious, but in all reality he's just a little goober and has a pretty good personality, thank heavens! I made him wear his beanie from Auntie Mandi since it was cool up in the mountains-it didn't stay on for long.

Heston loved walking with my dad. He wanted to show grandpa all the pine cones and grass and especially the tree he thought we should get.  Heston pointed out almost every tree as a potential, a very helpful young man. When we found the tree, he helped daddy cut it down. Heston was pretty proud of himself and wanted to show off his strength.
Hes walked with grandma too and showed her how good he could walk up hills. When Hes walks now, he clasps his hands together behind his back, it's pretty cute.

Then we took a family picture of the three (well four of us) and then one of the entire Creighton-Shelton clan. We had such a blast and can't wait until next year!

I can't believe I missed it!!! I'm so happy, though, that I got to see your description of him walking with his hands behind his back. He's so very mature in his ripe old age.
