Christmas Eve and Day 2011

I figured I better get on posting about our Christmas before it's 2012. Are you all sick of reading Christmas posts? If not, read on:)

Christmas Eve was spent with J's family. First his parents for lunch and then his whole family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, etc.) head over to his aunt's house who graciously hosts Christmas Eve dinner every year. This is one of my favorite things his family does. I love everyone being together.

Ben's cousin, baby Kylie

Drums from Ben's uncle. Those conveniently stayed at grandma's house.

Christmas Eve night...
Ben was less than thrilled with taking a family photo.

So excited to open presents

Our little elves who helped pass out all the presents. I wish I would have taken a picture of all the gifts before hand. The pool table was covered. Have I mentioned how blessed we are? We don't forget it for one second.

Ben was surrounded by presents and out cold before we even made it to the highway.

When we got home I set out the cookies for Santa and we all went to bed awaiting the big man's arrival.

Christmas morning. Of course it's the one morning where Ben sleeps in past 8:00. Still half asleep but ready to open presents.

Santa ate all his cookies, drank his milk, and left Ben a little letter.

Christmas morning is our time as our little family of 3. We eat breakfast, open presents, and play with all our new toys before we head over to my parent's house.
Helping me unwrap his gift to me. Held together by 1/2 a roll of tape.

Looking at J with confusion. When J wrapped my presents he told Ben he got me rocks because someone tends to be unable to keep a secret. You can imagine his surprise when I didn't actually get rocks.

Gotta love Dora.

On to my parents...
Is this how all the pictures of Ben and his cousin seem to go. One of them is smiling the other one looks pissed/annoyed.

And we couldn't let J just relax and open presents. We put him to work taking down the old outside lights and replacing them with the new ones we got my mom for Christmas.

Tune in tomorrow to sneek a peek at our Christmas Haul!
