Christmas Day

We woke up on Christmas morning to Logan begging us to wake up and open presents. I had to break his heart and tell him that we were going to wait another thirty minutes to give the baby a little longer to sleep. He was upset but he suffered through the time by playing with the contents of his stocking. When we finally got to the presents, the boys dug in.

This was the night before Christmas. We bought them each new jammies.

Santa was here!!

Daddy helped Sawyer open his presents.

All Logan really wanted was an Indiana Jones Lego Set. Santa always knows.

And Brandon of course was overjoyed when he opened Lego Indiana Jones 2.

The boys and Chris spent the rest of the day playing with new toys, mostly putting together some of the SIX Lego sets they got from Santa, and grandparents. I was busy running around the house all day cleaning and cooking for dinner that night. Grandma Shellie, Grandpa Harold, Aunt Heather, and Uncle JC came over to join us for dinner. I LOVE having ham for Christmas dinner, but since Chris doesn't eat pork, I always make a turkey too. There was plenty of food to chow down on, and we definitly did.

Sawyer had his first taste of whipped cream with dessert. Needless to say he loved it.

After dinner the boys got to open their presents from Grandma and Grandpa. Among their many treasures they each got a really neat light feature for their bedroom. Brandon got a moon light to put on the wall that he can control with a remote control and it cycles through the different phases of the moon. Logan got one that reflects rainbows on the ceiling. For his room, Sawyer was given a turtle that lights up in three different colors and makes stars all over the room. It's so neat. Last night as I was putting Sawyer to bed, Chris called from the livingroom "Don't forget to turn on his turtle!" I think he finds it more interesting than the baby.

Shellie gave Chris and I an amazing book that she had made from our blog. It is absolutly gorgeous. It's so cool to see my pictures printed on the pages of a such a nice hardback book. She's planning on doing one for every year. So I guess I better make sure I keep up with my blogging, huh?! It was a lot of fun going back and reading all of the entries for the past year. It's one of the greatest gifts I've ever been given. I'm so thankful for all of the hardwork that she put into it.

All in all, it was a great Christmas. I had a hard time getting into the mood this year to celebrate the holidays. I've just been really burned out on everything lately. But I gave it the best I could muster up, and I think everything turned out pretty great, if I do so myself.
