We had a great Christmas this year. It was so much fun to see Gavin's excitement as he discovered that Santa had left presents under the tree for him. He loved all of his gifts and i appreciated it very much too. We went to Christmas party at Javier's Uncles house on Christmas Eve, then to his parent's house Christmas morning and then my family came to our house for lunch and to open gifts. It was nice to spend time with family and play with all of the new toys. I just now feel like i am catching up on my sleep and getting Gavin back on schedule after staying up so late those days and missing out on naps. I am looking forward to 2010 now and hope its a great year for all of my friends and family too! I didn't get very many good pictures because there was so much going on but here are a few...

Playtime at the Museum

Here is Gavin and his friend Jake, from Playgroup , playing together in the awesome room for kids at the Museum of Idaho. There was a Christmas exhibit that we went to see then we let the kids play for awhile, they had a blast. It made me appreciate the fact that i don't have to use a water pump or a washboard to do laundry:)

Startin' to feel like Christmas...

New Christmas Monkey PJs from Grandma Connie

Daddy's little Christmas elf helping to put final touch on the tree

He didn't really "talk" to Santa this year but i was just proud that he sat on his lap and didn't cry.

I love the look of amazement on his face here as he saw the "tube of Dinosaurs" that Santa gave him

You would think that we force him to smile or something:)
