I have so many pictures, I'm going to break this into at least three posts :)
Let's begin with Christmas Eve...
We always open our Christmas Jammies on Christmas Eve. This was the first time Dex opened a present this Holiday/Birthday season and I was hoping that he kind of got into it, since I (and many other family members) spent a lot of time actually wrapping his presents. And he didn't disappoint, although he turned out to be a little slow with the whole process... one strip at a time... slow and steady, that's my little boy :)
Then... it was time to see Santa. Dex warmed up as time went on, but he never would sit in his lap by himself. So you'll notice me with them in all of these pictures!
Look at that face! haha!
"Who IS this guy??" (In hindsight, we might should have prepared him a little for Santa's visit. Maybe told him who he was, at least? Oopsie :))
Giving Santa a kiss :)
But can't stay close for TOO long!
By the end of the night, though, he was pointing to the Santa on his PJ's and saying "Santa." Smartie.
Emi will give Santa a kiss! *singing* I saw mama kissing SANTA CLAUS!
Now a little help prepping for Christmas lunch before bedtime (for Dex). I can't say thank you enough to my Mom for all that she does to prepare for our Christmas feast. Along with Christmas breakfast...dinner... and every other meal while we were there. She works her little tail off making everything and it is MUCH appreciated! And delicious :)
Next blog... Christmas morning!!
