Cross Country Christmas

I love Christmas. I love everything about it- always have. I would leave our decorations up all year long if it was socially acceptable... tree included. The only thing better than Christmas is your baby's first Christmas.. and every year to come after that. Over the past several years, we've had a couple what we thought would be baby's first Christmas-es that didn't turn out to be. Well this year, we celebrated big time. He won't remember it, but his mom and dad certainly will. Here is a glimpse into what our season looked like...

We spent a lot of tummy time by the Christmas tree.

We celebrated with the husband's side of the family in Greenville, SC earlier in the month. Finn and his cousin, Colton are 7 weeks apart. It will be so fun to watch these little guys grow up together.

 Fun times with Uncle Seth and Aunt Brittney
 This pic really speaks for itself. Sawyer insisted on wearing every new piece of clothing he got- included his daddy's new belt sans pants.

The weekend before Christmas, we went to celebrate with my side of the family in Aiken. The weather made it feel like Spring, so we enjoyed plenty of back porch time.

 looks like someone loves Christmas just as much as I do

We celebrated our own little Christmas for the first time as a family of three the day before we flew to Texas to see all of Dustin's extended family. Every year, Dustin dresses as Santa to deliver some pre-exam goodies to high school students involved in KLife. This ended up being our only pictures with "Santa" this year. I promise Finn liked it more than the scared expression on his face shows.

 Like father like son.

Our own "Christmas morning" on Dec 23.
Please disregard our geeked up "video voices" and the poor lighting. We started opening his gifts and filmed it as an afterthought.

We flew out to Texas the morning of Christmas Eve. Our little man is already accumulating quite the frequent flyer miles.

Fun times meeting new cousins in Waco.

I think someone was exhausted from all of our Christmas fun. 
He stayed like this most of the flight home.

Lastly, here is the 15 second version of our year.. the best. year. yet.
