Christmas Fun!!

So I have not posted our Christmas stuff and its already New Years!  Well, its only a week difference so I am not super late.  But I wanted to share about our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  First  we had to make a Gingerbread House, one of Jayden's favorite traditions.. has something to do with candy!
     Then for Christmas Eve night John's family came over.  It was a fun night of just eating pizza and hanging out.  We had a great time and it was so nice to see some family we have not seen in a long time. Jayden LOVED hanging out with his BIG cousins.  Unfortunately his little cousins couldn't come so Jayden was the only really little guy, but he was fine with that because he had his high school cousins to hang with.
Jayden watching as Cody puts together a present that he got from his aunt, uncle, and cousin.

Jayden got to stay up really late.  But lucky Santa came to our house late so he could stay up.  

Then for Christmas Day my family came over and we did the whole huge meal and everything.  It was nice, but also a bit sad because my grandmother went into the hospital on Christmas Eve.  She had a small stroke and needed to stay for observation and tests.

When we woke up Jayden went to the tree and immediately found what he had been asking Santa for... a Big Dinosaur with Big Feet!  Yes that is all he would ask for
He opened his stocking and a few other gifts.

My parents finally showed up and we got dinner (lunch) together and served.  After we all ate Jayden laid on the couch and fell asleep. I guess staying up late and getting up early was not easy.  

After he slept for a bit we decided to wake him to see what new stuff was not under the tree.  Even more Presents!!  
Then we all opened gifts and Jayden was so excited to get so many awesome things. 
Grandma and Grandpa got him a new bike and a Learning Tower!!
He also got a new Wii!  

After we were all done opening gifts and cleaning up Jayden took his new bike outside to try it out.  He loves it!

I hope you had a great holiday with you family too!  We are looking forward to the new year and what it will bring to our family.
