Merry Christmas!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas and hope you did, too!! We celebrated with Jason's family on Christmas eve morning with brunch at his sister's house.
Drake and Caden played in Caden's new tent. They had so much fun crawling around in here!

We planned to go to church that night, but the roads were pretty slick driving home. I ended up snowblowing/shoveling because, well, I like the exercise. :-) And, because we were leaving the next morning to drive to celebrate with my family. I'm pretty sure we got about 7 inches of snow. Since we weren't going anywhere, we let Drake open one of his gifts....Weebles!
On Christmas morning, Drake had his bottle and then opened the rest of his gifts...
His stocking had an ornament, book, stuffed bear, stacking cups, and a fork and spoon.
A basketball toy! He also got a book, bowl w/spoon & fork, and foam letters for the bath. We didn't go all out since he doesn't really understand, and he doesn't need anything. :-)

After breakfast, we got in the car and headed north to celebrate with my dad's side of the family at my brother's house. I didn't do so well at getting pictures, but here's one of Drake after trying my Aunt Donna's "famous" pumpkin bars! I think he liked it, what do you think?
Drake started getting a runny nose and drooling so I'm wondering if we have more teeth making their way...we've already gotten 4 since December 1st. :-) He was just too excited about Christmas and wouldn't take an afternoon nap so that made for a fun day. On Sunday, we got up and drove to my parent's house after breakfast to celebrate with my immediate family.

Every year, my parents give us scratch off lottery tickets in our stockings. We had quite a few good winners this year. I got a free ticket, Jason got a free ticket and $5, and Drake won $20!
My parents got Drake a Jack in the Box...he looks a little scared, but he likes it.
My niece, Nicole, with Drake.
Family! ... the best gift of all this year!

We left Freeport at Drake's bedtime and this time made it home without any problems. :-)

Looks like you guys had a great day :) It is a little different having to fit those naps in there isn't it? Looks like your little buddy has a sweet tooth like Parker does too! And he looks so handsome with his big boy haircut!
