Christmas Day!

It is my goal for Drake (and future children) to wake up in his own bed on Christmas morning...unless, of course, we're on a beach somewhere! This year, we had our Christmas when he woke up - he got a Mr. Potato Head, a train set, slippers, and stocking stuffers. We didn't do much again because I new he would be getting more than enough and his birthday is less than two months away. He did a great job opening the gifts and had to make sure every piece of paper was off. 

 Jason got Best Buy gift cards for new speakers in his truck.
I got a new cupcake tin and a KitchenAid mixer! Totally excited about that with all the recipes I want to try from Pinterest.
Drake had a little time to play with his train set while we packed and got ready to head to my parent's house. That evening we celebrated with my family.

Drake and Reid were Santa's helpers passing out presents to everyone.

He got a cot, sleeping bag, blanket and a pre-recorded book from Grandma & Grandpa. He slept on the cot that night and really well. He loved the blanket! Drake also got a bunch of puzzles, cars, and the LeapFrog Fridge Phonics.

We stayed through yesterday, and I was able to get some much needed scrapbooking done. Our ride home was pretty uneventful. We did have another deer run in front of us on the interstate but luckily we didn't hit this one.

I'm hoping to get more scrapbooking done this week and get all the Christmas decorations put away...sounds exciting, huh?

We hope all of your had a wonderful Christmas holiday spending time with loved ones!
