Christmas 2010

What a wonderful Christmas we had this year! I have said it a dozen times but there is nothing like watching the holidays through the eyes of your child. It was just magical this year - C loved the decorations, the "kissmas tree" and just everything about it. It was so fun and it already has me excited for next Christmas :) I am pretty sure Connor is going through present withdrawal - he seriously opened gifts for a week straight between his birthday and Christmas, it was so much fun! 

He requested cars for Christmas and was so excited to see all the goodies Santa left him. He was SO fun to watch opening gifts, he was getting so into it. Laying across them and yelling out what everything was. Sweet little thing. We had a tiny snafu on Christmas morning when we went to light a fire to realize that there were some leaves stuck up there from the previous owner. The whole house filled with smoke and we were all outside, in the snow, on the front porch. Thankfully everyone/thing was okay and we were back inside in no time. Ha! Connor had opened up one of his presents, a remote controlled garbage truck so he had fun driving that all over the porch. We must have looked so funny in our jammies and coats!

In his little Christmas jammers from Nonny! I love the tradition of new jammies on Christmas so that is what we started this year. Bj and I don't typically get each other anything for Christmas, so we stuck pretty close to that this year. We used our Best Buy gift certificate and bought a flip video camera and we love it! I have to get some videos posted. Other than that we are saving for our new kitchen :) Though, Bj did get me the little heater I wanted for the bathroom and he got a golf bag organizer and new jamms. After we opened presents at our house, Nonny and Uncle Davey stopped by and then it was off to Ne-Ne and Paw-Paw's!

Cute little cousins! We were once again spoiled and so happy to be around our wonderful families. We stayed with the family for a little while and then we were off to Nana and Grandpa's house! Where, you guessed it, we were spoiled again :)
I didn't get a family picture of the three of us, but this one made me - kind of sums up how easy it is to get a "good" picture of my squirmy little toddler man!

We had such a wonderful time with Nana and Grandpa celebrating Christmas and Nana's birthday! Connor was totally spoiled - among his favorite: the toolset from Aunt Jen and the motorized Harley from Nana and Grandpa! He was a little unsure of it at first, but come this spring he is going to be terrorizing the neighborhood on it, ha!!

We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends - we had an absolutely wonderful birthday and holiday season this year. We think it's a pretty great way to end the year. We are looking forward to 2011 and all that it will bring! We hope you had a Merry Christmas as well!
