Christmas Eve and Morning

Sunday, January 24, 2016
Working my way back through pictures from the last couple months and playing catch up here on the blog. Today it is Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning. The days surrounding Christmas are busy ones in this house and we are grateful and blessed to have so much family around us to see and celebrate our Jesus with.

First up on Christmas Eve was taking some baked goods to the local fire station. We had promised Perry that we would do that so he could go in and meet a real fireman and see the station. He was so excited and asked the sweet fire captain who greeted us all kinds of questions. He was very impressed at the fact there was a kitchen and big screen tv inside.

The Captain showed us all around the station and took us out in the garage to see the firetruck. Perry was in little boy heaven. Thanks Captain Smith for showing us around and answering a two year old's questions. You are his hero.

Then Perry and I went and picked up Grandma and brought her back to our house for lunch. Grandma wanted to take a picture with Perry in front of her tree and Perry had fun playing with her little wooden nativity that I have so many memories playing with as a little girl.

Back at our house we had a simple and yummy lunch of pizza, salad and wings. And ate around the dining room table which belonged originally to Grandma's Grandma.

Poppers with crowns inside never gets old. 

We opened presents and played until it was time for Perry to get a nap. That evening we went to church for Christmas Eve service and then over to Mommyteen and PawPaw's for dinner. And I failed at taking pictures. Oops.

Once Perry was tucked into bed, Santa came to visit and Andrew and I sat and enjoyed our his handiwork. 

The next morning Andrew and I got up and did our Christmas with each other before waking Perry up. Ann came over to visit and we waited for her to arrive to go wake the sleepy child and bring him downstairs to see his presents. He was more excited initially about his octonaut toy than the giant teepee and campfire. I don't think he knew what to do with them. Thankfully he figured it out and now loves them!

Andrew and I both gave each other new handbags. lol. I got a new fancy Michael Kors totebag and Andrew got a Yeti hopper.

Late morning the Moreland family came over for our family Christmas. We had a awesome spread of brunch food. We ate, opened presents and visited through mid afternoon. Love these people!


So many presents!

It is not Moreland Christmas without a cookie cake for my birthday. And this year it was a 30th birthday cookie cake. Perry helped me blow out my candles, and was also more than willing to help eat the cake too. It was a super fun Christmas morning!
