Playing with dog kibbles is easy and accessible! What an imaginative boy!
But real presents....are much better!
A remote control Thomas!?! Shut up!
For my Scandinavian friends...this is home made lefse! NOM NOM NOM!
Before supper was on the table, I found these two chilling out, watching Thomas. Braden is very much like his father...likes to have quiet time by himself!
And then it was time for presents!!! My family always opens our presents on Christmas Eve.
Not so much in the mood for pictures now....
....but after his bath and getting into Santa jammies, much happier!
He might look serious up there, but he was so well behaved and had lots of fun playing with his new CAT excavator, stayed up until 7:30 and then pretty much fell right asleep!
Baby Bean got really spoiled!
This look! I just die, it melts my heart! He was so happy!
And then we headed the 3 hours back to the farm, Braden had a 1 hour nap, to celebrate with the Schultz Family.
Braden was so hungry he needed a bite of banana before his turkey!
And that was that! After supper I was running around helping to clear the table, clean the dishes, and I
may have raised my voice at my mother-in-law saying "you, get out of the kitchen now!", as she was drying dishes. She deserved to relax as she cooked and prepared all day and had a houseful of 10 adults and 8 kids. She then disappeared for at least 15 minutes! This is one of my favorite gifts that Braden got this year:
Little tiny Bauer skates and a helmet! I'm so excited to take him skating!!! I can't wait to be a hockey mom! I love my camera strap and lens cover! And some tiny OPI nail polishes!
Braden LOVES this Thomas take-n-play...and his new Thomas jammies!
Even just posting this...exhausts me! Hope you all had a wonderful time with your families. As excited as I always am for Christmas, I'm always just as happy to see it go! Until next year!
