Christmas Eve and Day

We always have Brent's family over for Christmas Eve lunch, but every single picture I took that day was blurry, so we will have to fast forward to the night. We were sad to see Pete go...luckily he left a note.
 I was more sad to see our Christmas tree go. I have been mourning for 3 days. It just makes the living room so much happier.
 Because Brent doesn't get enough candid's taken.
 Cookies for Santa, carrots for the reindeer.
 Christmas morning was fun, although I expected Baker to wake up freaking out that it was Christmas morning. We had to remind him that Santa came and that he brought presents.

 So, this entire season, when asked what Santa was going to bring him, he said "a purple puppy". Umm, this was a challenge for Santa since they don't really exist except on Ebay. Of course, mom knew that a purple puppy would be hugged once and then left alone for the rest of his time at our house. This picture below is just that. I'm pretty sure this is the only time he touched him.
 The slide, however was a hit.
 Bake is serious about knocking Spiderman down.
 Zoe got a hoop baton!
 Then it was time to see the trampoline Shug and Daggy got him. It was in the garage, unassembled, but it is together now and he LOVES it. See those Stompeez? When he opened those from Grandmother, he said "I really did want these!!"
 Hungry Hungry Hippos was also a hit with this guy.
 Then we packed up and headed to Birmingham to spend the day at Nathan and Amy's and see my parents and Honey.

In my opinion, it was the perfect Christmas! So much excitement, activities, singing, joy, and family togetherness. I could not have asked for anything more.

Love the pics. The same things happens with the stuff Anna Lee asks Santa for. Its has been 2 things for the last 2 years and those 2 things are the LEAST played with items she gets. What do ya do??

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3: 12-14
