grandparent weekend and Christmas day

The weekend before Christmas my wonderful parents came to visit. They are the nicest, funnest people you'll ever meet. I love how they love me, love each other, and especially how they love those kiddies of mine. We had a blast with them.

Highlights included swimming in their hotel pool (white trash style for me...oh yeah...), and an early Christmas gift extravaganza.

This was actually Morgan (and Pearl's) very first time in a real pool! Morgan had only been in kiddie pools before. He took a few minutes to warm up to it, then was loving it. 

On to the grandparent gift extravaganza.

The boy was in heaven. That red and yellow car is his dream come true. As soon as grandpa put the body of the car on the ground, Morgan grabbed the steering wheel and jumped in. He knew right where the steering wheel went. Waiting for grandpa to put it all together was probably the hardest thing he's ever had to do in his life. As you can see, it is now used for a variety of activities, including reading and eating snacks. 
There were other car toys involved as well and Morgan was pretty much going nuts. Little did he know it was only the beginning...
Pearl was also a lucky lady, though she didn't quite know what was going on. She got a darling new outfit. That always makes a mama happy!

Ok, fast forward to Christmas Eve night. 

Here's the set up. Oh yeah. 

Ok, now it's Christmas morning. 

Morgan woke up grumpy... Here he is actually looking at the awesome stuff in the room for the first time...

I love how he's just realizing all the coolness going on in the room.

Needless to say, it was a fun day. 

I know there wasn't much of Pearl in here... we got her some teething cookies and yogurt in her stocking, and Uncle Eric got her an awesome toy. And... that's about it. She was a happy camper though. She mainly enjoys watching Morgan's antics.

Ha, sorry... but I just had to include that first one. Of course when she finally flashes a great smile she spits up big time. Classic. And gross... I have no sense of whats appropriate anymore, sorry. 

Anyways I love my family and I love Christmas and what it's really all about.

Thanks to everyone who made ours so great. You know who you are!

We hope you had a lovely one too.
