So? It's almost a week late.
Jack got a huge haul of gifts. Honestly, we could have gotten away with no buying him anything, but we did.
This picture pretty much sums up the day:
Jack fascinated with his new toys, especially the ones that make noise.
What did he get? Well, here's a list:
* The puppy above
* A V-Tech farm with animal and music sounds
* A walking/riding toy
* Tons of clothes
* A band in a box
* A baby piano
* Three trucks
* A huge moose stuffed animal
* Five wooden puzzles
* A baby cell phone
* Four wooden vintage toys (workbench, blocks, ball pounder, etc.)
* New bath toys
* Two stockings full of little things
* Tons of books
* A Little People plane
* Money (yes, seriously)
He cleaned up no? I am sure I forgot some things, but dang. The kid is spoiled.
Our day went well. Jack woke up at his normal time. Mommy was tired, but because it was Christmas, a cup of coffee and 6:00am wasn't so terrible. Jack opened his stocking. Well, mostly Mommy opened and Jack just tore paper to shreds.
We headed over to my in-laws in the later morning with a car full of presents, and my husband suddenly gasped and said this: "Oh my God, do you realize that we have about 13 years of assembling shit ahead of us?" Gee, thanks honey for reminding me!
Jack and the rest of us got utterly spoiled at the in-laws. Then it was off to my aunt and uncle's. The boy didn't nap great, but he did at least nap some. Unlike Thanksgiving which was a nightmare. We were all tired, but Christmas cookies made the day happy. Jack particularly liked the Peanut Butter Blossoms. That's my boy! He loves cookies.
Our first Christmas as a family was nice, but honestly, the kiddo isn't going to remember it. Next year will be an entirely different story, that's for sure.
