bedtime came early as dadee started to feel ill, and mama had work to do! holden was certainly okay with that as we had a long fun day “patiently” waiting for santa claus.
post bedtime. the house was so quiet. it was perfect time for “santa’s elves” to come out and play! [even when they feel soooo sick! love you, babe!]
goodnight, toys! see you in the morning!
he went straight for his kitchen. he loved it so much!
of course, then he found santa’s left over cookies.
granny and pops stayed up extra late, so they could watch deanie open his presents.
i’m thankful for timer settings!
great granny and grandpa, thank you for the bug book! it was the cutest when holden saw the bug go around the pages and yelled, “i got it!”
a cute little fiat remote car! it was a cute little find while out and about.
thanks unk T for his awesome chef apron! he’s quite the little cook!
a little backwards! ha! not your typical mantle setting, but you work with what you’ve got! right?!
he loved finding lots of little treasures in his stocking. the play doh and big boy undies were a hit!
this serious boy could not stop watching rudolph for one second to get a family picture — and that grumpy look? yeah, that’s what mama gets for asking such an atrocity!
how do i know holden loved christmas so much? he still asks for “santa claus” [santa claus is coming to town] as a bedtime song. so cute!
we hope you had a merry christmas!
