Christmas Day 2011

Santa obviously thought the boys were good this year because they were SPOILED! They both received football decor for their room, Carson got an XBox Kinect with 8 games and an extra controller, and Deacon now owns about every toy that lights up and plays music for his age! Brian and I didn't do too bad ourselves. I was given two purses, gift cards to Bath and Body Works, Kirklands, and a massage, along with a bunch of goodies for the house. Brian opened his pressure cooker, two belts, a wallet, gift card to Home Depot and clothes. We gave the grandparents photo books with pictures of the boys (I will probably blog about later) along with a few other gifts.

My absolute favorite part of Christmas this year was watching the boys play together as they opened presents. I can only imagine how much more fun future Christmas' will be with our three boys together, and then one day their families as well.




Deacon LOVED his new Fisher-Price house (I think Carson loved it a little too)!



He also really loved the shiny wrapping paper that Meme used!
Carson helped Deacon open his presents, while also tearing into his own!
For some reason Santa thought it was a good idea to bring Carson a 2 POUND candy cane in his stocking, even though we still have left over Halloween candy that hasn't been eaten...

Football slippers:
This glow-board was actually meant for Deacon, but because there were no tags on it, Carson claimed dibs on it. Maybe they can share?
Big ticket gift, XBox from Grandma and Grandpa:
Yes, we gave Carson Call of Duty. I guess we are "those" parents...but he already plays it at his cousins anyways, and I have yet to see any violent tendencies.



After taking so many pictures this weekend, I have also discovered Deacon's new chipmunk smile! He grins so big that his cheeks puff up and his eyes squint. I must admit, it is completely adorable.




Am I right!?!

My sister and her boys came over for breakfast, but in the midst of all the fun I must have forgotten to take any pictures!

Pretty soon it was time to clean up (4 trash bags worth of boxes and wrapping paper), our cat Lola thought she would help out by finishing up what Santa had left:



On to Grandma and Grandpa's house where we had a delicious dinner and played White Elephant!
Deacon enjoyed climbing on his cousins presents.
Carson had a blast having a dance-off with his new XBox game.
Grandpa even showed off a few moves that had us rolling!
This was one of my favorite photos of the day. Deacon loves his Dada's beard, giving Brian the opportunity for lots more kisses.
Grandma and Grandpa have gone to a few 3D movies:
We finished off the evening celebrating our nieces birthday, who was born on Christmas day last year.
Hope your Christmas was merry too!
