I love Christmas! And this one was a pretty good one now that Tre understands Santa Claus and gets so excited about presents. On Christmas Eve we put reindeer food out in the yard, tracked Santa on NORAD, and made cookies to go with his milk. Christmas morning Colin was talking at 6am, and I didn't want him to wake up Tre; so I got him up and we cuddled on the recliner (luckily he went back to sleep) and stayed there until Tre got up at 7am. This was my favorite Christmas present this year: seeing Tre's first reaction to all the presents and him saying, "Mommy, Santa Claus came!!" Tre discovered his chocolate chip cookie from Santa and went to go wake Daddy up right away. Colin woke up shortly after and discovered his balloon, he was a happy boy!!
The rest of the morning went great, the boys got some awesome gifts: big wheel, easel, tool stuff, and, of course, lots of musical toys. After our family presents we went to TJ's sister's house and got to spend some time with the Davis side of the family. Tre loves spending time with his cousins, and TJ and I discovered the Wii!! All in all it was a great day, the boys were beyond tired by the end of the day. TJ and I will continue our Christmas celebrations at the beginning of next week when we go on our mini-vacation and get to see the Blue Man Group!
We're so glad we got to be in Florida to spend Christmas with our loved ones. Next Christmas will be interesting with the addition of a little girl to the mix, but I know it'll be just as exciting!!
