It's been said that Christmas is more fun with kids.  Now that Gavin is two years old (and really into Christmas and all that goes with it) we couldn't agree more.  I don't think I've ever seen anyone more excited to unwrap gifts than Gavin this year.  He loved helping everyone else open their gifts too and made sure that there was never any down time between presents.  With our trip to Seattle and Eastern Washington, Gavin was lucky enough to get three different 'Christmas mornings' this year.  Gavin has finally taken an interest in Thomas the Train and got his first train set under the tree.  Of course there were many other cars, buses, and airplanes that showed up as well.  The best gift of all though was spending time with all of you.  It was so nice being able to come home and celebrate the holidays with our families.  I know that Gavin had a blast spending so much time with his Grandparents and Aunt and Uncle.  Maybe next year he'll be more excited about the snow!

Gavin's stocking filled with goodies from Santa.

This Thomas the Train set was a big hit Christmas morning.  He had wanted one for a while and was so excited when he realized he'd gotten one.  We had to set it up right away.  That yellow school bus in the background quickly became a new favorite toy as well.  He carries it everywhere he goes and always wants to take it to bed with him.  Planes, trains, automobiles, and buses....that's what he loves.

Christmas morning at Grandma and Grandpa Wallwork's house.  Before the chaos began.  You can barely see out the window that there's snow on the ground, which meant that we had a white Christmas!  A first since I was about 4 or 5 years old and certainly a first for Gavin.  It was a perfect Christmas...complete with snow, family, and lots of orange rolls.

Helping Aunt Tammy open one of her Gifts.  Watching the two of them sit there together made us realize how similar these two are.  It's no surprise that they share the same birthday.
