A bit More Christmas

After helping Bobs mom with setting up for christmas, we headed to my parents house for christmas eve festivities. We're lucky enough to have our parents only 20 minutes apart. We spent the day playing games and doing puzzles. We even let the boys open a few presents. They were SO excited! They then spent the day playing trains. After an early dinner we headed out to look at some lights. We went to a house we've always enjoyed even when Connor was young. Sorry the pictures aren't that great, I forgot the camera and hadto use my moms cell phone.

After lights we sent the boys to bed, with their new jammies of course. We were anticipating an early awakening, but not so. Ben was up at 7 and we had to wake Andrew up at 8 to get things going. Andrew wrapped Bens present all by himself this year. He was so proud of himself. Ben was so excited to geta present, he wouldn't let ANYONE touch it. He kept saying MINE and running away if someone wanted to help him open it. He didn't care what was in it, he just wanted to hug it. SO CUTE!
All Andrew asked Santa for was a speed racer watch. Here he is showing it off.

It looks like you guys had a very magical Christmas. Thanks for your note on our blog, we are very excited about the baby. I think Leo & Vickie are pretty excited too. They are already talking about getting tricycles.
