Merry Christmas

Christmas this year was a lot more fun! Cale was able to get excited and open his presents by himself...for the most part!

Santa was good to Cale this year :)

He got this brand new toy box that even had his name on it!
But the best part is that he put toys inside of it!
He also got this really cool race car step stool....that will be very useful in the future.

Cale wasn't so sure at first, but once we showed him the toys inside the toy box, he wanted to do nothing else.
Then we tried the stocking. He took his race car out, but wouldn't go for anything else in it :)

So we decided to let him play while Bryan and I did our gifts. Bryan got some clothes, a x-box game and a new cell phone. I got my red kitchen-aide mixer, some Mary Kay, and a book :)
Then we were able to get Cale to open his gifts. I tried to consolidate so that he only had a few to open. I knew that there would be a lot more to open that day so I didn't want to wear him out.
After we did everything at our house, we headed to the Libby's for breakfast and more presents. Let's just say that it did not take Cale long to spot his first present and he had to get on it! He loved his 4-wheeler from Aunt Valerie and Uncle Wayne! And it didn't take him long to figure out how to make it go :)
At the end he got to open his big present from Nanny and Papa.....
Then we had to take them both outside to let him ride.

Uncle Brett's present was a big hit too....he just didn't know that he was going to have to pick Cale up a million times to let him shoot it!
After lots of playing and a good lunch, it was time to go to Jason and Jenny's for Christmas with my family. I am very ashamed to say that I took no pictures over there! So as soon as Mom or Jenny send me some pictures, I will add them.
Jenny hosted Christmas this year, now that she has 2 kids, it was here turn :) Plus it helped out mom because she had to work that night. Everyone helped out by bringing a dish and we had a great meal!
Then it was present time. Our family is rapidly growing so opening presents takes a while! We decided to let the boys open all theirs first so that they could play with their new toys while we did our presents. The plan worked well.
After all the festivities, we had one tired little boy. So we headed home and Cale was in bed by 8. What a great day. I love spending time with our families so Christmas is such a fun time. I know that next year will be even better as Cale starts to truly understand the meaning of Christmas!
