Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

I love Christmas! Definitely one of my favorite times of year. We spent a few days at my parents house to be able to spend as much time as possible with family throughout Scott's break. I love all of the traditions that we've continued through the years. We wake up Christmas morning and have a big breakfast filled with cream cheese roll, fruit and all the fixins. So relaxing to be able to wake up at my parents house and still feel like a kid again at Christmas.

Christmas with a two year old has to be one of the funnest thing ever! Griffen's first gift to open was a pair of crocs. It was the cutest thing ever! He immediately knew that he wanted to wear them asap. He stripped off his pajamas and put the shoes on as fast as he could.

Here he is playing basketball with his new goal after he had put on his shoes. As you can tell, he loved the goal too.

G loved crashing through the wrapping paper. The smile on his face didn't go away for days!

Me trying to teach G how to play baseball with his new tee on Christmas morning.

Checking out his new cash register. Remember these things? I had one when I was a kid and was so glad to see they had come out with them again. So fun to see Griffen playing with one of my favorite toys as a kid.

After breakfast and all the gifts, we headed to Scott's parents house to have Christmas #3. Here we are posing for our annual pic by their tree. It was a pretty low key holiday there this year with different family members at different celebrations. So good though to be able to spoil each other in a smaller setting.

Granny, Scott's grandmother, checking out her new blanket. Think she likes it?

Griffen and Emilee, my cousin, loved checking out the leaves (no snow this year) in my parents yard on Christmas night. Love seeing the smile on his face and the joy in his eyes!

Goofing off with cousin Emilee!

All in all it was a great Christmas. So very thankful for our loving families, a beautiful home to enjoy, and for Christ's love this season.
