We had a great Christmas holiday this year!
We followed our family tradition and went to church on Christmas Eve. It was a good service, but pure torture for Carter because like all kids he just wanted to go home and open presents. It was great seeing Carter tear into the wrapping paper like a maniac. Anyway, he was having so much fun Julie and I even let him open our presents. After all the presents were uncovered, and dinner was in our belly’s, it was time for a cup full of hot chocolate for dessert. Before we went to bed, we made sure to leave out cookies for Santa, and of course carrots for the always hungry reindeer. Then, we all went to bed with dreams of sugar plums dancing in our heads.
Christmas Day was full of fun with yet another set of presents. Carter woke up and excitedly ran downstairs to see what Santa left him. This picture pretty much sums it up. Carter was thrilled to see that he left the Lego City Fire Station he had asked for.
On Christmas night, the Stubler family came over to celebrate. We exchanged some gifts and had the traditional meal. Carter was especially pleased with the custom letter cookies Grandma made because they spelled out his full name!
