as promised, the photos from christmas eve and christmas day. i already shared a few from my post on christmas eve, but there ended up being several more from the dinner at justin's mom and stepdad's house.
we were excited to see all of our family--justin's sister came in from the western part of NC, and even though we live one street over from his stepbrother's family, we are all so busy that it's rare we all make it together!
love this one of my boys together, watching football.
afterward, we headed back to our house and enjoyed a quiet Christmas eve watching movies on TV. i know we should enjoy these nights before he gets too excited to sleep!
we woke up the next morning and headed over to scott and melissa's--justin's stepbrother and sister-in-law--for their annual Christmas breakfast. they have a "pajamas only" rule, so we all showed up in our Christmas finest. these santa pj's are my favorite from this season!
he was mr. independent--once he got comfortable, he was wandering around the living room around one of the biggest Christmas trees we've ever seen.
they always get a huge tree the week before Christmas (at a discounted price at that point) and this was the largest one yet. probably about 15 feet tall, we figured.
the food was delicious and we loved visiting with all of our family and neighbors.
we got packed up and drove to fayetteville, with davis sleeping about half the time. we got to my grandma's house and settled in for round 2 of presents and dinner!
and we're just so thankful that this guy will get to grow up knowing most of his immediate family.
the rest of the evening was spent hanging out with his cousins (he is drawn to any and all technology--iPads, computers, phones, anything)
and breaking in his tunnel--he has loved this gift and it has been great for getting him to burn off energy inside.
so that's "the end" for now--
