Oh hi! Remember me?! Like most of you, it's been pretty darn crazy in our household this past week! For starters, we had Jared's brother and his two kids visiting from Tennessee. We haven't seen them since last Christmas, so we were very excited. The kids have gotten SO big. Our nephew Mason is now 8, and our niece Mallery is 6. Lincoln LOVED his big cousins!
Christmas Eve we always go to a HUGE party with Jared's family. His family is ridiculously huge. His father is one of nine kids...which means there are tons of cousins, kids, and babies at this party! It's really fun, and I look forward to it every year. It also gives me a reason to dress up my sweet boy. And honestly, he stole the show! Here is my dapper dude very excited about the Christmas Tree.
My Mom spent Christmas in Florida with my Dad this year. We missed them both very much, but we were very happy that my brother came to spend a couple of nights with us. Lincoln was especially happy to have his Uncle.
Lincoln loved opening his presents. He totally had the hang of it and thought ALL the presents were from him :)
Santa came and brought Lincoln a train table!!! He was very impressed, as were his two big cousins.
The day after Christmas, Jared and I took Lincoln and his cousins to Chucky Cheese. Lincoln had a blast there, and he doesn't even need tokens to have a good time. He especially enjoyed driving this car, which happened to be a police car...figures!Then Daddy introduced him to this coin machine. Lincoln got the hang of it rather quickly, loading the machine up with tokens...
...he did quite well, actually! He won all these tickets by himself!!
With his two big cousins around, Lincoln played hard every day. One night he passed out on his chair, with his rain boots on, of course!
We had a very merry Christmas! It was a perfect holiday. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to have my parents with us. I hope your holiday was merry & bright!!!
