Merry Christmas!!!

What a beautiful time to celebrate the birth of Jesus!!

J must have sensed it was a special day...instead of waking up at his usual 7/730am...he was awake @ 615am.

The family before opening stockings/presents...


J was not interested in opening the stockings...


But couldn't wait to open his presents!


Once one was opened, he was done. All he wanted to do was play..


See? Driving his truck away from the loads of presents.


J loves his Spiderman couch!


Everyone else got presents too! Mama got chocolate...mmmmmm!! (The only bad thing about good chocolate is that it's impossible to eat 'cheap' chocolate for a long time afterwards...it tastes too waxy!)


Dada got a CD!


And really nice slippers!


Even Sweet Pea got a few gifts, and she's not even here yet!


Speaking of the baby...here's a picture of more reindeer than you've ever cared to see....


We played a little...


Before finally heading out to the park. Shawn was on toddler duty while I sat on a bench and got ~creative~



J loved the leaves falling on him.


After naptime, Grandma and Grandpa G came over bearing gifts...


Cool!!


J loved helping Daddy put it together.


This thing is AWESOME!!


Trying to get a photo of them was impossible...J was not interested!


Still not interested....


He did like the snacks, though.


And peeking from under the table.


And this giant prime rib bone from dinner!!


Funny moments of the evening...during dinner, if I turned the camera on J, he made this face:


And, after dinner, while reading a Sesame Street book w/ Grandma and Grandpa...I asked him: "Where's Oscar the Grouch?" After thinking about it, he pointed his finger...straight at me! Huh??? It was unintentionally hilarious. It was a great day spent with very loved family. Merry Christmas!

That rib bone is bigger than his head...

I love your reindeer. :) Can't wait to hear her name.
