Christmas 2011

On Christmas Eve, we let Hunter open a present.  This was a tradition we did in my house (although, when we were younger, we opened a gift that had our pajamas) and something Carl and I both wanted to have for our family.  We had him open the Melissa & Doug Pound and Roll Tower.

He played with this for at least 20 minutes:

Santa came to visit that night after Hunter went to bed.  Santa brought Hunter Fisher-Price's Play My way Customizable Play Center.  Santa forgot the sink that goes with this play center, but Fisher-Price was kind enough to rush ship us a whole new table (without us having to send back the old one).  It should be here within the next few days.  He also got Hunter a few books.

Dreaming of Santa

We bought Hunter Melissa & Doug (can you tell we love that brand?!) Band in a Box and Clay Play.  I got both on super sale.

Carl bought the family the iPad.  Hunter loves seeing the peek-a-boo games on the iPad.

We went to my parents' house for my dad's famous brunch.  Delicious.  The kids opened gifts in a few nano seconds.  Ryleigh kept saying, "I'm all out of presents."  Hunter opened about 2 and was over it.  We packed the rest in the car and opened them at home.  We taught my dad how to play Angry Birds (I think Hunter is a lot better at it than he is) and Hunter passed out watching Peep.

We headed home for a bit, then headed off to Carl's uncle's house.  We had a good dinner, opened gifts, and had a great time with everyone.  Hunter was showing off his goofy personality most of the night.  He even put on antlers (until we took out the camera).

Thank you everyone who made our Christmas (especially Hunter's) so awesome!  We are so very blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives.  We were all very spoiled!
