Christmas Day

So when Gigi, Papack, Aunt MerMer and Uncle Roger arrived, the boys showed them what Santa brought. Everyone was very excited and couldn't wait to open more presents. Here are the pictures from the rest of the day.

Jonathan and Aunt MerMer. He slept through most of his first Christmas.

When they arrived, we had brunch together. Andrew and Coleman had already eaten some oatmeal, but our brunch was a big hit. Those boys love breakfast food. Here's a shot of Andrew, wearing his helmet, watching Gigi make the sweet potato biscuits. Yummy!

Coleman drove his fire truck all around. He'd drive up and say, "Here comes the fire chief!"

After brunch, we let the boys open their gifts from everyone. Aunt MerMer and Uncle Roger gave them each a sleeping bag!

Andrew got a set of fireman walkie talkies from Gigi and Papack and Coleman got a "My First Craftsman" nailgun.

Gigi and Papack loved their picture of the boys too.

MerMer and Roger also gave the boys a fire truck tent. A HUGE hit! They loved playing in it.

We looked over after the gifts were finished and saw Coleman was ready for his nap.

We put the boys in their beds, and then saw that Brent was also taking a nap.

Jonathan did wake up for a little while that afternoon.

By the time nap was over, it had stopped raining and so the boys got to play outside in their new toys for a bit.

After supper we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and had birthday cake for one of our desserts.

This is a tradition my grandmother started when Meredith and I were little girls, and I love carrying it on for our boys.

Don't be fooled into thinking that's the last Christmas post. More to come. . .
