Christmas Day

We stayed the night at Dave's parents that night and woke up Christmas morning to stockings filled with small presents for Colt and Jax. The boys opened up their stockings and we all slowly woke up and had some coffee. It was a nice way to start the morning, fairly relaxing and the boys were all so happy.

Memah and Case playing with the doggies.

 I told Dave when I took this picture it was going on the blog and he chose to give me this look. Randee looks cute though, ahh to be 19 again!
Jax got a new superhero shirt and he immediately wanted to wear it. The kid is obsessed with all things superhero! I'm pretty sure on most days both my boys think that they are superheros.

Case didn't get many presents (being the third boy he doesn't need many at this age!), but he did not care. He was happy with playing with the boys toys and loving all the bows and wrapping paper.
Poppi put together Jax's spiderman skateboard. We gave Colt one for his birthday last year and Jax rides it all the time and has been asking for his one. Colt has a blue one and we found this black on for Jax, he was thrilled!

 Merry Christmas!
We had the traditional bread dough pudding for breakfast and spent most the morning opening all the presents. The rest of the day was very nice and relaxed, I loved it! I got to go on a run by myself, the weather was beautiful and it felt great to get outside and have an hour to my thoughts. The boys played a lot with all their new toys, and we just sat around and talked. Dinner was very yuuummmmmy; prime rib, crab legs, baked potatoes, salad and rolls. Considering we had 5 kids under 5 at the dinner table it was a pretty relaxing and a relatively quiet meal. Andy and Taylor both had to work and Katie & Travis spent Christmas in Virginia with Trav's family, we missed all of them a lot! I love the holidays and as my boys get bigger (and our family grows) it has become even more fun and exciting.
