Our day will filled with some presents, food, fun and wearing our PJs all day! It was very low key since my extended family Christmas was the weekend before and Eric’s wasn’t happening until a couple of days after. I took a video of Parker Christmas morning hoping for something cute and smiley like normal but instead there were tears since he couldn’t touch the camera – figures! Maybe next year!
Who doesn’t like reminiscing Christmas a month after it’s over? These pictures are from Christmas at my parents, which we celebrated the 22nd – 24th. Parker had fun opening his first presents and the toys he received he still plays with every day – no duds yay! He was quite the trooper with staying up past his bedtime and enjoyed all the quality time with family he doesn’t get to see as often (they live about 3 hours away). Next up….Christmas Day!!
This past weekend we were invited to a Pancake Breakfast by one of our friends so our boys could see Santa! Her little guy is 4.5 months and both he and Parker did great – no tears! Parker just stared at him at first, but then I broke out “Itsy Bitsy Spider” to get him to smile. Then just yesterday I was out shopping and there wasn’t a line for the Santa at the mall so I figured “when in Rome” and let Parker see Santa again. He happened to be in the same sweater and the background was a little more holiday-ish compared to other one and Parker has just been so nice I figured he deserved to see him twice! Once again he just stared at Santa until the photographer shook some jingle bells and then once again “Itsy Bitsy Spider” got a smile out of him. I hope it’s this easy in future years! Something tells me he is going to get everything on his list and more!
I shared this on Thanksgiving but wanted to follow up with some more pictures of our day.
Hope everyone else had a Happy Turkey day too!!
