And for those who said we were crazy, we know, but it was so worth it to see his face. We figure if he shows interest we will encourage it, you never know what those interests will develop into someday. In the meantime the drum has been duct taped to lower the volume and is kept in his bedroom to keep some peace.
It was so hard finding a gift for Reid. Buying for a four month old is hard enough but when he has loads of toys and clothes passed down from an older brother it’s just difficult. But we settled on a crib mobile for our little boy who has to take everything in.
He seemed to like it though he might just have been excited about it being his first Christmas.
He couldn’t keep still either way.
Dustin was very excited to get a tool bag he has been eyeing for a little while now and I was very excited to receive some new clothes!
After we had our little family Christmas we headed to my in-law’s. Like Christmas Eve it was relaxing and all about being with the people you love.
Dallas received a very cool remote control car which he loved playing with. Everett was very unsure about it so his Aunt Brittany rescued him.
And he was perfectly okay with that.
Despite all the toys they received, an empty box and a top hat my mother-in-law already owned were the favorite play things. The hat was passed around and the empty box doubled as a sleigh, a car and a train.
And Everett was happy when dinner time came and he realized he had graduated to the kid’s table. His parents were a little less enthused after cleaning up his mess but he enjoyed it and so did his cousins. Well, as long as he didn’t touch their bacon.
Christmas Day ended with friends and my family coming over for food and fellowship. It was a wonderful Christmas that went by all to fast and was very special.
