Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (It's a long one, mostly pics and videos)

We kicked Christmas off on Christmas Eve by serving our neighbors, listening to Christmas music from sun up till sun down, family fun, and making cookies for Santa. Christmas was awesome this year. It was so fun to start our own family traditions and do our own thing this year. We do miss family, but it was nice to do our own thing. We finished the night off with Luke Chapter 2 and the clay animation movie of's a must every year

How cute is this plate?  Joann Fabrics, Baby!

Evan putting the last cookie down for Santa...or maybe trying to pick it up...

Reading The Night Before Christmas

He actually really enjoyed it!

Mr. Claus likes Coke...Mrs. Claus likes water, but she wanted to stick to the tradition, so she had milk.

Santa placing presents for the sleeping baby

All of these are for a good  little boy except for 1. Greg and I  treated ourselves to an XBOX Kinect for Christmas :o)

Santa likey.

Mrs. Claus is so funny

Christmas Morning
Evan has been dealing with Roseola since Wednesday and he hasn't been too happy lately. We actually realized what it was today because he busted out in a rash and he has had nothing but a fever since wed. This morning was no exception to his unhappiness. He wasn't even that into the wrapping paper which isn't like him at all. Poor little guy. He'll have more fun next year anyway. I have a picture frame that says baby's first Christmas so I was trying real hard to get a picture of him with his hat on, but after the 90th picture he made a growl noise and ripped off his hat and threw it on the floor. needless to say that ended the picture taking.....for a while.
The First Present!

notice how he is sitting on a present?

Daddy's favorite sleeper


Great Grandma gave him this bear and he loves him.

Mailbox from Grandma

We actually forgot about his stocking, so after church and his nap we gave it to him. One of  4 cars he got for Christmas.

This was the best picture I could get.

My first Christmas Ham.

My life rocks because of these two. The end.


  1. We Love you guys, Merry Christmas!!!!!

  2. I am sad that your little guy wasn't feeling so great for Christmas but, he won't remember that he didn't feel good so I guess that is good. I have not been very good at blogging lately or checking on other people. I have loved catching up on all that has been happening with you and yours! The cake train was adorable. It's stuff like that Evan will remember even as young as he is because it involves ALL of his little senses! He may not remember the details but he will remember the joy. He is a lucky little boy to have a mom and dad that do so much with him. You will continue to blog after you leave here right? I need to be able to see him get bigger!
