Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Christmas is always such a FULL part of the year.  Full of smiles, full of gifts, full of family, and full of activity.  This year was no different! 

Christmas Eve was a dreary, rainy day, so we were thankful we invited the whole clan to us!  Noah even got a present from Lolly a little bit early.  We've named him Clarence for now... and he loves Clarence!

Despite what this looks like, Noah was enjoying Clarence!

Lolly feeding Noah something that he probably isn't supposed to be eating... :-)
Christmas morning was quick at our house, but we still had time to open a few gifts.  Noah loved his tunnel that was waiting for him when he woke up. He also loved tearing into his other presents.  He was so excited, he had NO interest in eating breakfast. Pretty smart lil' dude!

We packed up all our stuff in the car (and I mean PACKED) and headed to Lolly and Popsie's.  We had a super delish breakfast (and Noah still refused to eat... he knew he had presents to open!) and then opened Noah's presents before heading he took a nap.  He got a zoo membership.... I am not sure who is more excited!!

Around noon, we headed to Cappy and Atti's for round #2.  It was a full house!  My cousins (who are in 4th and 5th grade) absolutely love Noah, which was really nice for momma :-)  He, as usual, loved being in the center of all the activity.  He got a super fun slide (that he is obsessed with!) and one of my childhood favorite books, among other fabulous gifts!

By the time we got home, my voice was totally gone and we were all pooped.  Noah was in bed by 7:00 and I followed shortly after.  This Christmas business takes WAY more energy these days!

Merry Christmas, and Happy Birthday Jesus!
