Christmas at G and G's

On Sunday morning we went to my Grandparents house for breakfast and presents.  I enjoyed the family time and of course Payne loved all the attention he got from his cousins.  I didn't get any pictures of them holding him, but maybe Granddaddy will email me some! 

Ryan and Payne chilling watching people open presents.
 Papa and Teme

The girls got a electric Razor scooter.  They were so excited! They will have a lot of fun with it when the weather is warmer.  

Payne and Granddmommy.  He was getting tired by the end of the presents, so he took a nap.
Thanks to everyone for the awesome gifts.

Christmas at my mom's house

4 Christmases in 2 Days= WILD!!!

We had four Christmases in 2 days! Here is the start of it!

We headed to Little Rock for Christmas at my mom's house the night of the 25th.  We got there around 4. We let Payne eat and then we started opening presents. 

Payne did really good with playing with bows and tissue paper.  Everything went in his mouth!!!
I love this puzzle with his name on it! 
This is Payne's new hat! I freaking love it!!!

After we opened presents we had our Christmas dinner. We always have tenderloin, cheesy potatoes, salad, and deviled eggs. It was so good! Thanks mom for all the goodies!! We love you!

Some things we can use now and some things we will have to grow into!

 Payne even helped us unwrap some.

 Mommy got some pretzel M and M's!! Umm my favorite and it look like someone else likes them as well!!
 and a flip camera!!!! Now we can record everything our little pumpkin wants to do!
Ryan got golf head covers that the Razorback golf team uses! He was pretty excited!
 Then it was stocking time!

Then we played with all of our new toys until it was time to take a nap.

Christmas Eve Traditions

 Since we found out we were pregnant almost a year ago, Ryan and I have been talking about traditions we wanted to start in our family.  Tonight was one of those nights.  We just laid around the house all day and got things ready to for tomorrow and then we headed out for the Christmas Eve service at church.  

Pastor read the Christmas story to all the kids.  I took Payne up and we listened to Pastor read.

After that we went down to the Fayetteville Square to look at the lights. It was really cold, but we enjoyed getting to spend time with Payne.


 The square was beautiful and not very crowded, so it was a perfect night to go.  

  When we came home we opened our Christmas pj's from D. and Big R.

 Payne even grabbed at the paper and helped me.

 Mommy's new pajamas
 Payne's new pajamas

 Daddy's new pajamas

Then we had a little photo shoot of the Santa Baby. He wasn't very happy by the end. 

Our family in our new pajamas,

Then Ryan read  The Night Before Christmas to Payne.  

 Then we left Santa some milk and cookies and a note for Santa.

Payne loved his note to Santa.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight! 

Merry Christmas to your family! Hope you have a great day!!
