Brace yourselves...this is going to be the mother of all Christmas posts with pictures galore. We had a VERY busy stretch of holiday celebrations and still have a little bit of that "hangover" feeling as we try to recover from it all. That being said, amidst the hectic schedules, stuffed bellies, and not enough sleep, our Christmas was absolutely perfect. We got to spend some much needed time with our families, as well as enjoy a little quality time as a family of 3. Harrison was a trooper through it all, and loved being the entertainment at all of our gatherings.
By the time he woke up from his nap that afternoon, the cookies had been magically decorated and were ready to eat! It was Harrison's first sugar cookie experience...and it was most definitely a hit!
Just for the record...that was NOT Harrison's present. He spotted the trucks and made a bee-line for them. As a matter of fact...he did that with most presents that his cousin Benson opened. Looks like we're going to add "be better at sharing" to his list of New Year's resolutions!
After staying up WAY too late on Christmas Eve, we peeled ourselves out of bed the following morning to check out our Santa goodies under the tree. Harrison found a stocking full of goodies, some trucks like the ones he tried to steal from his cousin Benson a few days earlier, and his very first set of golf clubs. I'm not sure who was more excited, Harrison or his dad!
After a quiet morning at home, we made a quick stop at Grandma Debbie's before heading over to Matt's mom's house. We wanted to have the chance to wish everyone a merry Christmas in case we didn't make it back at the end of the night. We hate to rush, but in my mind, a quick trip is better than no trip!
Harrison got some new "Bs" (letters) and some other toys for the bath tub. They're definitely a new favorite!
Our next stop was to Matt's mom's house for lunch and more good company. Somehow our stocking stuffers always transition into some crazy game/competition at this Christmas. This year, 4 grown men used inverted insulated ice scrapers and used them to throw/catch fake snowballs. Matt thought his accuracy was heightened with the use of these "golf ball finder" glasses. Weirdo.
Who cares what is IN the box...H was more interested in being ON the box!
