Christmas this year was spent at Uncle Brent's house with Grandma and Grandpa Wallwork visiting for the holiday. It was cold and still snowy outside with a real FULL-SIZE Christmas tree inside (a first since Gavin was born) so it definitely felt like Christmas. Of course Gavin made out in present department and didn't know what to play with first. By far his favorite gift and the one we were most excited to give him had to be his Geo-Traxs set though. Many hours have been spent building elaborate track set-ups and watching the cars and trains go by. Having a three year old on Christmas morning is so much fun and couldn't have been more entertaining. Thank you everyone who sent Gavin and us gifts for Christmas. It really meant a lot. We love you and miss you all. We hope you had an amazing holiday as well.
The Geo-Traxs in action. Lightning McQueen was a big hit.
Curtis was surprised with new guitar strings on his guitar Christmas morning from Uncle Brent and was thrilled with the new lovely sound it made.
Some Christmas light bokeh!
Our real Christmas tree this year became ridiculously dry by Christmas day and all of us couldn't wait to get it out of the house and the huge mess of needles cleaned up. I have to admit that I felt pretty 'Scrougey' putting a Christmas tree on the curb, still decorated none-the-less, by 11:00 am Christmas morning, but it had to be done. I'm sure the neighbors thought we were crazy, but oh it was so nice to have the living room clean once again. Smells great, but what a mess.
Uncle Brent mocking my 3lb dumbbells I asked for for Christmas.
Hey, I'm going for high reps here. Cut a girl a break.
Proof that we do in fact have friends!!!
The one good thing about moving as much as we do is that you meet lots and lots of really amazing people along the way. Thanks for the cards and pictures everyone. They made our holiday that much better!
