Tons of Christmas Pictures

Here is a recap of our Christmas day.....

We started off the morning with stockings and presents at home. It was fun watching Cale "open" his presents (I have a short video if I can figure out how to get it from the camera to the blog).

~Stuff from his stocking~
Next we were off to Granny and Papa's (Bryan's Parents) for breakfast and then more presents. Cale was hilarious. He started to get sleepy about the time we were ready for presents, so we did his first. After all of his presents we put him in the swing thinking he would go to sleep. Boy were we wrong. He talked and kicked and played the whole time we did presents. When it was all said and done, he finally crashed!

After presents we hung out and ate lunch and then watch one of Bryan's DVDs (a comedian named Jeff Dunham). That was lots of laughs. From there we headed home for a couple hours of quiet before going to our next stop.

Our last stop of the day was Nana and Poppy's (my parents) house. There we tried numerous times for a family picture. Cale wouldn't smile, but I guess that is only because we wanted him too :)

Again we had a great meal and tons of presents. Brody was the best one to watch. He got so excited! Cale will be there next year and it will be fun all around. After all the presents were done, Cale got a bath, bottle and was out. Mom has a crib so it is really nice to be able to put him to "bed" while we are there.
Then it was time for a game of Taboo! We had lots of laughs and "I cant believe you didn't know that"! We always play a game on Christmas night at Mom's. It is usually a game that somebody received as a gift, but no one got a game this year so we broke out an oldie. It was still a lot of fun.

Finally it was time to head home. It was a long day, but we would not trade being with family for anything!

Love the rocker :)

And be sure to video more than I have. I've gotten her 'big' moments- but most of the time the camera is much more convenient :)
