Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning

My mom, brother, sister and nephew came and spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with us.  My mom made a wonderful meal Christmas Eve and Jason made a wonderful meal Christmas Day.  Bubbie enjoyed having all her kids and grandkids under one roof!
Watching videos of santa on the iPad.  Parker is obsessed with santa so it was funny to watch him watch the videos....pure excitement!
"Uncle Clay, will you please play with me?" was the question of the weekend! Both boys love their Uncle!
Christmas morning we all woke up when the boys woke up and started off with stockings! And then while breakfast was cooking we did the big gifts under the tree.  Cody got puzzles, Toy Story themed toys, Mickey Mouse themed toys, cars, musical instruments and lots more! Jason worked really hard to make the Pioneer Woman's cinnamon roll.  He halfed the recipe and they didn't quite turn out like she makes them but they were still really yummy!

Snuggling with Uncle Clay and watching more santa videos on his iphone.
We celebrated Christmas in Oregon the next week, but Grandpa and Grandma had a bike under our tree for Cody.  He loves it! Rumor has it Grandpa bought this when Cody was 6 months old and saved it until he was big enough to ride it! He is just a few inches too short still but by the spring/summer he will be just right!
Although Christmas started off sad this year grieving the loss of a close friend we were still able to enjoy making new memories as a family. One tradition we started this year was to be at our house together on Christmas day. Our home is always open to anyone who wants to come see us on Christmas day and this year we got to enjoy it with our Texas family.  Christmas is so fun through the eyes of a child.  Cody's favorite song this year was "Jingle Bells" and his favorite Christmas movie was "Polar Express"!
