Christmas Day!

Christmas morning, even though Alex is still too young to really understand, it was fun to bring him downstairs and see him stare at the tree that was now surrounded by presents. Dressed in his Santa suit, he kept pointing at it while I was feeding him breakfast.

We then opened stockings before everyone came over.  Alex grasped a little better that he was supposed to pull things out of his stocking than he did the day before at Mimi’s house.

After everyone arrived at our house, the present opening commenced.  Alex had a great time, but was a little overwhelmed. He had so many gifts to open and everyone wanted his attention.  He enjoyed every minute of it, though.

Alex got a bunch of great gifts including:

Then Alex napped while we cooked Christmas dinner.  He woke up in time to come downstairs and get his first taste of ham with the family.

After eating, he got his red wagon from his Pawpaw.  He loves being pulled around in it.  I think he might sit in it all day, if only we would pull him around the whole time.

All in all, I would have to say that this has been the best Christmas of my life.  It was great to hang out with my parents, James’ parents, and James’ grandmother.  Spending time with family is one of the best parts of the holidays.  The icing on the cake this year, however, was getting to watch my son enjoy his first Christmas.  I just can’t wait until next year!
