Christmas Day 2008

Christmas for us was WAAAY relaxed. We woke up at the normal time of 7:30 and went out with Carter to see what Santa brought. Megan was still asleep, so we just looked in our stockings and played with the gifts and goodies while we waited for her to wake up. When she woke up about an hour later, we got down to business. We all took turns, so as to make the morning last longer. Because of the turn taking, we only made it about two thirds the way through opening till I had to feed Meg and put her back down for a nap. We paused opening the gifts for about an hour, which gave Carter time to play with some of his new toys, and then got right back in the game. Towards the end of the morning Carter got impatient with the whole taking turns thing, and started opening mine too. Funny boy.
It was a great morning. We were really spoiled. Bo got some Wii games and clothes and a PDA from my brother. I recieved some lotions and a book and some jewelry and cookbooks, along with a panini grill, which is the ULTIMATE!! Thanks Whit and Bridget! My other gift was a shopping trip in a few days to San Marcos, which has two HUGE outlet malls. Carter got his cowboy hat! He also got Hungry Hippos, puzzles, books, Kung Fu Panda, a guitar, a rug with car tracks on it, cars, and a PIRATE SHIP!!! Can you guess what his favorite gift was? Well first it was the hat until he saw the ship. That ship was worth every penny (which, by the way, I got an amazing deal on) he plays with it nonstop!
Sadly, I didn't take too many pictures. We were too busy having fun. Bummer.
Carter zonked out after the busy morning.

He loves this ship. In case you're having a hard time figuring out what's in his ship. . . those are his tractors and cars and just all his toys. The ship was the best place to stash them all.

Bo's playing one of the games he got. It's Mario vs. Sonic Olympic Games. The drums are out because he also got Rock Band 2.
