Christmas #3

Saturday, December 26, 2009

This morning, we got up early and drove down to Michael's sister's house to spend the day with them. They weren't able to come up for Christmas Eve/Christmas Day this year, so we went to them today.

We were really excited to be with Brendan for Christmas because he is at the age where he is pretty into it now. He still doesn't understand everything, but he knows enough so that it's fun.

Shortly after we all arrived, we enjoyed a big brunch. Once our bellies were full, we couldn't hold Brendan back from the presents any longer, so we exchanged gifts. Although all of us enjoyed the things we received, this part was really all about Brendan and Logan.

At 10 months, Logan doesn't get it yet, but he's darn cute anyway. Melissa said that when I put this bow on his head, he looked like a girl. Probably, but oh well! :) We got Logan a little teether and a gift card to a local grocery store. We figure it's his favorite place because they carry food, formula, diapers and wipes! All the necessities, don't ya know?

For Brendan, we bought a little Fisher Price doctor's kit, and he was hilarious with it. He kept going around giving us all shots in the leg (and saying "All done!" afterwards), as well as checking our heart beats, blood pressures, and eyes/ears. The gift was a hit with him, for sure. Then he opened our second gift--a toy microwave with a bunch of fake food. The microwave actually works, with a little light and turntable inside. He was completely enthralled with it. He kept opening and closing, opening and closing... food in and out the entire time. He knew exactly what buttons to press for each food item, and was serving us all "dinner" in no time. It was awesome.

Max found all of this activity to be absolutely exhausting.

How cute is he? I love how he smiles and says "cheese" whenever a camera is pointed at him.

Look familiar? Max likes to be in Logan's face (and kiss his face) just as much as Tessa loves to be in Hunter's.

Since Thanksgiving, Logan has pretty much mastered crawling and is getting around quite well now. (Just as I predicted!)

Before we knew it, it was time for the long drive back home again.

The last three days have been absolutely exhausting. As much as I love Christmas, I can't wait for a bit of "normal life" tomorrow! And I'm soooo sleeping in!
