We opened presents again. Paxton got a cactus named Raw Clyde that sings and dances. After he'd opened that, he didn't care about any other gifts! Everyone else, on the other hand, was wishing he'd move onto something else!
I have to share this one. We got Papa a mug with a picture of himself posing in his pajamas. He said he'd drink his coffee out of it every morning... but not in mixed company. :)
Paxton enjoyed wrestling with my cousin Taylor. Actually, he waited until Taylor laid down on the floor to rest and then attacked him!
Before we left on Christmas morning, we did manage to get a few pictures of Mema and Papa and the great grandkids. I thought this was cute... except that Mema is trying to hide!
That's better Mema. :)
We had a wonderful time and were so glad we got to spend several nights there. Before long though, it was time to head East to Pa and Gee Gee's where Santa was leaving some gifts. And what do you know? Madi got what she asked for!
Plus a few extra things from Pa and Gee Gee. Surprising, I know. Here she is with her new doll, Ellie.
She also got a new gown and a matching one for her baby.
Paxton got a new iPhone. Oh wait a minute, that's just him stealing mine again...
He did, however, get lots of toys and some new outfits. This is his gangster ensemble.
"Word up"And this is his cowboy outfit. Make sure you note the boots. :)
We had a great time in Rusk. Paxton learned how to be a true cowboy and get on and off of his rocking horse by himself.
And Madi just enjoyed getting to do everything she wanted for several days.
On Sunday afternoon, we ventured outside for a little fun.
It was still REALLY cold, so we took advantage of the new fire pit my dad had made and had a campfire!
And what good is a campfire without some smores?!
Ever need a good laugh? Put mittens on a 1 year old and then give him some food. Nothing is going to stop this boy from getting his nourishment. :)
While we were outside, Madigan painted Paxton's name on his board on the playhouse. (The girls had done theirs at Camp Pa and Gee Gee's)
And Paxton left his hand print to make it his own.
As always, we had so much fun at my parents house. In fact, after driving about 5 hours to get home, Madi announced that she didn't want to go home but wanted to turn around and drive back! Ted and I vetoed that idea.
Thanks to all of my family for a wonderful Christmas. We love you!
