Christmas Day (ish)

All I can say is Easton got really spoiled this Christmas. It started a few days early when he received this present from Grandpa Andy. The thing that is really cool about this workbench is it has been through their two sons, and several of the other church boys. Each time getting a little more added to it, and now it has made it's way down to Easton. I LOVE this gift and he does too. He has played with it everyday since he got it. This doesn't even show the whole array of tools that came with the bench.




Ready to go to work!






After that Christmas continued on the 25th and Grandma and Grandpa's house. Where the family opened more gifts.



This pile of wrapping and gifts doesn't even put a dent in what was there for the grandkids that morning. They are very lucky indeeed.





Then after a morning at the grandparents house we went back home and opened our gifts. We got up too late to do it before we went to grandma's, which was totally worth it!


Here he is with his new sleeping bag and blanket from Grandad. He thought they were very cool.


Daddy and his boy their 2nd Christmas together.


Had to have one with mommy too even though I'm still in my sweats and haven't gotten ready for the day yet.
THEN we went to dinner with the in laws (well my in laws) it was quite a busy day.



Easton and his best bud Erik sharing a roll.


Here the boys are again hiding in the curtains. This was their favorite game till the curtain rod started to fall and they had to stop. (Don't worry we fixed it!)


Here the kids are listening to the Christmas story about the birth of Jesus.
Then what a shock....MORE presents. Seriously we could've given him nothing from mom and dad and he still would've had way more than he needed. He definitely got more from everyone else than he did from us anyway.

This one is just too funny not to post. Logan after he "smelled" his uncle's pie.
We had a great Christmas this year and as always I am reminded of how truly blessed my family and I are. I could've done without even one gift and still had more than most people do don't have enough room under their tree for all the presents. I have an amazing husband, a wonderful son, and a family (on both sides) that can't be beat. The greatest gift of all of course is the reason we celebrate this season in the first place...Jesus. I am overwhelmed when I think of the greatness of that sacrifice for us. We have all been given more than we could ever deserve, but is His pleasure to give, if we would just accept the gift.

I LOVE the workbench pics! It's so precious. Spoiling is what Grandparents are for! He is blessed to have so much extended family. We don't buy much for Kaia either because usually she gets plenty! It helps with out wallets and prevents a ridiculous amount of stuff ha ha. Great photos. Unfortunately, I forgot both cameras at home trying to get so many things together to take across town :(. Only pics I have are from Grandma and the "Bartlett Christmas"

A VERY cool workbench, even more so because of the many it's gone through. What a special gift!
Love seeing the pictures of our families together... We really are so blessed.
