We opened up our traditional jammies - lets just say that when they make kid jammies tight to be less of a fire hazard they might have made them a bit too tight for Landon :)!
Then we headed back home and talked about the Christmas story using the nativity and Landon opened jammies at our house too (with the same problem! Seriously - how tight do clothing companies think they need to be?!). We have a tradition that the first gift we give is to Christ by writing down something we will do that year and putting it in a special box that sits under the tree. Landon ever participated this year and colored Jesus a picture. So cute!
It looks like Santa came that night!
As excited as he was about his presents, we were really surprised that he didn't tear through them really quickly. Instead he would open one and want to play with it, or read it for a while before we convinced him to open another. And so far he has played with everything about equally - he loves his matchbox cars and puzzles as much as the Kindle (thank goodness!).
Jeff's favorite present were his new Nike's (surprise, surprise!). But I didn't get a picture of them. My favorite is pretty much unbeatable, though. Jeff took our blog and had compiled the first couple of years' worth of posts into a book!! I know it took him hours - and it was so sweet! I've been saying for more than a year I want to get that project started and haven't. The fact that he took the time to do it for me was so sweet! I love it - what a personal present!
Everyone came to our house for Christmas dinner, which was delicious! We were so excited to spend it in our new home.
Grandma & Grandpa brought this with them:
Then we just hung out for the rest of the day and enjoyed spending time together. What a great Christmas!
