Christmas.

This Christmas was delightful.
It is always a pleasure to spend time with family and to celebrate the birth of our Savior.
We loved it all...

The laughs...
The Nutcracker...
The presents (lucky dude)...

The yummy Christmas dinners...

"Auntie Tate"...
The piano...

Making Christmas cookies....
{He liked them until he found out he couldn't eat them}

Driving the car with Meems...
Ordering food...

Watching (or dreaming about) Avatar...
Playing with/being the Nativity...

Bennett's stocking...

A new bouncer....
{please notice that while this turkey refuses to enjoy a pacifier, he will take a rubber ducky any day of the week}

Meems' Jewelry...

Opa...
Walks...

Cousins... and baths (LOVED them both)...
Rockband 2 with Papa...

Daddy time during the infamous gift exchange...

The Christmas suit from Great-Grandma Mergens...

This chair...

The cuteness...
Christmas Trees and the smell of "Home for the Holidays"...
{that surely should be the name of a candle}

Mom's new Christmas feather...

Samsey and her smootchies...
Christmas sweaters and eggnog...

more time with Mom...
and much much more!

We loved loved loved it all!

Disclaimer: The awful fuzzy photos are the result of my stupidness. I forgot BOTH of my cameras at home this year (way to go me). Who does that? So, my parents let me use their extra coolpix (purchased 3 months ago) that we regrettably learned was defective. I downloaded the pictures, saw the fuzziness and nearly cried. Bummer.
