Christmas Fun!

Our Christmas festivities began on Christmas Eve, at my sister's house.  We ate lots of wonderful food (thanks again mom!) and Brandon played with his cousins.  Here are a few pictures from the evening:

Brandon's "fighting" face!

Helping Grandma open her gifts

After the kids opened one present each, (new pajamas, a holiday tradition in my family), we went home and prepared for the arrival of Santa Claus.  We told Brandon that if Santa comes and leaves presents he needs to come and wake up mommy and daddy in the morning and not touch anything til we get there!

Looks like Santa came...someone must have been a good boy this year!

We woke up Christmas morning to Brandon running into our room, saying, "Mommy, Daddy, Santa came and left presents;  wake up, wake up!!"

Everytime one of us would ask Brandon what he wanted for Christmas, he would say, "Boundless Love".  That is a song from Ernie Haase and Signature Sound's new album/DVD titled, "A Tribute to the Cathedral Quartet" Brandon LOVES this particular song since he first heard it with Grandma. (click on the link to also hear part of the song Boundless Love, along with the other songs on the album).  Needless to say, he was a little more than excited to see that Santa (aka Grandma in this case) brought him the one thing he asked for!  It's also pretty much the ONLY THING he's watched all weekend!

I've never seen any of the Toy Story movies; neither has Brandon.  I thought it was funny that the movie is all about the struggles your old toys go through when they are replaced with new toys....Brandon's old toys must be just ready to die right now!

Every Christmas there has to be at least one toy that doesn't work and has to be returned.  Our dysfunctional toy this year:  the game Gone Fishin'

Brandon loves his new Spiderman blanket..thanks sis!

Santa brought Brandon his first mechanical car!

And how could Santa NOT bring him a lightsaber?!?  I wonder what Star Wars obsessed mom told Santa that Brandon would really want one of those?!!

Brandon was a REALLY good boy this year!

Our very happy almost four year old!
