This year we enjoyed every moment of the Christmas season with David.
Last year, David's first Christmas, he woke up Christmas morning with the flu after Angie had been suffering with it for two days. So, our first Christmas of a family of three was really celebrated this year!
Christmas Eve day David continued to look at the chimney and call for Santa. He did not truly understand, but did know Santa was coming to our house down the chimney.
Here is our sweet little guy ready for the Christmas Eve service at church
Mimi and Ed joined us too
The beginning of the service had several kid favorite Christmas carols, kids were asked to go down to the front of our church, Rudolph came out and all the kids received red noses. David threw his across the church and that was the end of that. He did fairly well for a one year old, but David did have to leave during the sermon with Greg. They joined us again for the candle light and David tried very hard to blow out the candles.
While setting out cookies for Santa, David took out his paci and picked up Santa's cookies. He took a few bites and left the rest for Santa. Good thing Santa does not mind sharing!
Here is David coming down stairs on Christmas morning
David's first gift of Christmas, M&M's from his stocking. He was happy and we had to gently nudge him to look at anything else
he found a new truck under the tree from Santa
and then he found his big Santa present before Mommy and Daddy were ready. We let Bella out to go to the bathroom and David caught a glimpse of his new house
it was hard to get him back inside, but he came reluctantly...
he ripped and opened and played
and Bella did the same
we then headed to Greg's parents for Christmas with the House's
David got a new back truck... just like Daddy's
David was not interested in opening gifts, so he sat in his truck and Daddy helped him open the presents
mid morning we piled back in the car and headed to Kingwood for Christmas with Angie's extended family
David enjoyed Cousin Brooke's doll house
and Barbie car... he crammed himself in for a ride
it was time to open more gifts
after a long Christmas Day we headed to Crosby to have Christmas with Angie's immediate family the next morning
David crawled in Santa's sleigh after throwing the Snoopy Santa out
neither of the babies were interested in opening gifts really
David did get some new pj's from Gram and Grandad that he requested be put on right away. He also got a new Elmo book and phone - LOVED IT
Gram and Grandad also gave David a new picnic table
Aunt Christie and Uncle Brian gave him a new grill
after all of the excitement David decided to fill his pj's with trucks from Gram's toy closet
then he found Grandad's shoes
after naps the cousins played
David had lawnmower time with Grandad, at David's begging request
then played in the sand with Gram
we went on a long walk
and played at the park
after all of the fun David and Grandad needed a nap
Angie's parents rode back to Round Rock with her and thankfully stayed and helped her get our house in order... Christmas gifts organized, closets cleaned out, and Christmas decorations packed up ready for next year. They even babysat David so we could have a dinner out!
Here are David with Gram and Grandad enjoying the new picnic table!
We enjoyed the Christmas so much with the joy of David, the love of our families, and time with each other.
