My Christmas post.

Whew. What a week. Not only has my little brother been in town for the first time in a year and a half, but we have been moving my brother in law and his wife out of our basement, cleaning up Christmas, and I have been sick.

We had such a fun Christmas morning. JJ was spoiled rotten. Next year we are reining it in. He didn't really even want to keep opening presents. His favorite gifts included: keyboard from Robert and Kim, his Spiderman tent from Grandparents Tomsick, and his putt and drive golf set from us. of course. Jeremy bought us this deluxe Scrabble game and we have discovered that it is really fun. Jeremy is way better than I am.. but I have been making headway.


This holiday season is shaping up to be a week of discovery as I have further decided that Christmas morning is just as much for dads as for kids. Jeremy was SO excited for JJ to open his presents. He bought JJ two remote control carsa dn one of those tracks you put care on and they go around and around. JJ will chase the cars, but the toys are pretty much for him. I'm not going to lie, it is really cute.


Anyway, here are some pics, so I can start posting about something other than Christmas. Like the rude ugy at the running hsop, selling our desk, and other crucial elements of my boring life.

JJ loves Grandma's chocolate covered pretzels.We had a fund visit from Lucas's family right before the holiday. JJ enjoyed getting to know Joshua a bit.

What fun pictures! It sounds like JJ got way spoiled! It is so fun to see your child's face light up with a toy though, it is hard to resist spoiling them at Christmas. Glad you guys had so much fun. We missed you all!
