Earlier this year, we lost Jared’s grandmother, Lincoln’s great grandmother. Her presence was definitely missed that evening…as she’s the one who started this huge family! Her birthday is also on Christmas Eve, so it was very bittersweet. Jared’s grandfather was however there. He was very excited to meet his 29th great grandchild, Avery.
He’s 94 years old, folks. Doesn’t he look fantastic?
We wrapped up the party, and then headed back to our house to exchange gifts with my parents and brother. We started this tradition the year Lincoln was born. It definitely cuts down some time on opening gifts in the morning…as Lincoln always makes out very well!
We tucked ourselves into bed close to midnight. We had to bribe Lincoln and tell him Santa would only come if he was sleeping! Poor boy wanted to open all his new toys!!
Come Christmas morning, he was very excited to discover Santa did come…and left him his very own Batman recliner!!
I swear, he was way more excited about it than it looks! He was just having a typical cranky moment.
We celebrated Avery’s very first Christmas! He was very impressed!!
Lincoln got many, many gifts. Our family was very generous with our boys. One of Lincoln’s favorites was his “hockey guys” set.
I never miss an opportunity to grab my camera [or in this case, phone] to snap a shot of my gorgeous boys together…
Seriously, they even all match! That wasn’t even intended!
Oh well. They’re only this little once!
I hope you all had a great Christmas. I know we sure did!
