Christmas...a long post!

We had an awesome Christmas this year... I think mostly in part that Owen was so excited for it! On Christmas Eve we went to breakfast at the Around the Corner Cafe here in town and it was amazing! It's a tiny little place, but Derek and I agreed that it was one of the best breakfasts we'd had in a long time. We went home and Owen and I napped... or I napped. Owen didn't (I think he could sense the excitement of Christmas!) So, we went to church that evening and on the way there I noticed Owen was super quiet... I turned around and found him like this!

As some of you may know, Owen NEVER falls asleep in the car! He hasn't much since around 9 months old. At church he was even asleep as we walked in... he did wake up shortly after which was good because the kids were encouraged to stay in the service and watch... he loved it!

After church we came back to our house and opened presents with my mom, Danielle and Josh... Owen got a Thomas toothbrush set and he screamed so loud "THOMAS!!!!" when he saw it... too funny! He got a lot of stuff from Grammy, but his favorite is his new "TB" as he calls it...

He's got his cup from his Thomas set with him while he watches tv

He got this chair from Auntie Ashley and he really likes it too... especially to watch tv!

On Christmas morning Owen opened his presents from us and Santa... we hopped in the car and headed over to Grammy's for our annual Egg Nog french toast. Derek got spoiled and got bacon, biscuits and gravy and hash browns... my mom sure does like him! ;] We had to get home and put Owen to bed because my Uncle Bill, Aunt Lana and cousin Katie were coming over. We haven't seen Katie in a year and a half because she is a missionary in Papua New Guinea. It was great to see her!!! That evening we headed up to Derek's parents house, which I look forward to because we get spoiled with PaPa's cooking! He's a chef and boy does it show! Owen got lots of great things from them and we enjoyed a few hours of wine and good food.
We had a lot of fun... but I'm glad it's over. We're gonna take the tree down tonight and prepare for New Years... watch out for photos!!!
