I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

I think this might be the last year that we all wake up before Brayden on Christmas morning.

This morning, when we heard the first peep from Mr. B, all 5 of us (my parents, brother and Chris and I) stormed in to get him. He was a little taken aback...

Our attempt at a morning family picture...he was still not really sure about what all was going on!
But once we started opening his toys he really warmed up to the idea of what was happening!

Grammy and Granddaddy got B his very first red wagon and so we propped B up - can you spot him in between all the toys?

Mr. Man and his loot!
Chris and Brayden got me a David Yurman ring with his birthstone. It matches a necklace Mom and Dad had bought me and a bracelet that Chris and B got for my first Mother's Day.

Buster showing his Christmas spirit!

My favorite gift, I don't actually have a picture of right now. But Chris sponsored a child in Honduras for me for a year (we'll continue the sponsorship of course!) through Compassion Intl. It was my favorite gift and so, so special.
Brayden with a toy in each hand...and his mouth.

Oh, and the white Christmas part?
How's this?

That's a view of our lake. And here's the bridge leading up to our cabin.

And to show you how much snow we got, here's what was on Chris' mirror when we took off for a ride around the property this morning!

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Looks like you little "B" had a fun first Christmas! I am so jealous that you guys got a white Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Merry CHRISTmas! The snow looks awesome. It snowed here in Alabama for about 5 minutes. Just enough for everybody to put on their coats and boots, lol! Have a great day!

You have such a beautiful family. :)

Sounds like y'all had a great Christmas. I love how Christmas morning makes it look like Toys R Us threw up in the living room :) I have 4 kids, my house was/is a wreck! But oh, the fun we had. :)

Merry Christmas!

I got a pair of David Yurman earrings myself this Christmas. They are Bay's birthstone that match a ring I got when she was born. I have a bracelet I got from my parents when I graduated with my Master's a few years ago, but it's my birthstone, so just a hodge podge of David Y. I guess! That's ok, I'll take anything of his.

Looks like B had a GREAT first Christmas. Did ya'll play in the snow or just take pictures. I would give anything to have some snow to play in. We travled to Alabama and back so we are worn slap out.

I'm glad this Christmas was great and special for ya'll and your family this year! Merry Christmas!
