We squeezed 3 family Christmas get togethers into 2 little days!
Carson and I started the Christmas weekend off with breakfast with the girls Saturday morning at Broken Egg. This was Mollie's first time to meet Carson, and everyone else had not seen him in awhile either so of course he had to be passed around the table....which he loved! He enjoys being the center of attention.
Then we headed off to Derek's family Christmas lunch at his aunts. Lots of good food, gifts, and company :) We even had Jason's dad serenade us with his violin which was lovely. Baby Dylan has decided he does not want to be a Christmas baby so we are still patiently waiting on him. We all kept saying this time next year we will have 2 lil boys running around. So fun to think about. Here are a few pics from the day...
Then we headed to Christmas lunch #2 with my dad's side of the family. Lots of good food, gifts, and company :) No Pics taken :(
Christmas Eve we just spent some time as a family at home. Here is Carson in his Christmas pjs awaiting Santa's arrival.
Derek cooked a big breakfast Christmas morning and then made a trip to church in the rain. This was Carson's first time to be brought into the church service and not go to the nursery (only because there was no nursery not by choice). This went as I expected....unsuccessful. My mom spent 80% of the service in the church foyer with Carson because he was being a tad disruptive. My mom says he was just trying to sing christmas carols. HA! After church, we had some serious play time with all Carson's new toys and Derek and I opened our gifts to each other.
Later that afternoon we went for Family Christmas #3 at my parents house with my mom's side of the family.
Thank you to everyone who made Carson's first Christmas so fun! Every day with him is a gift from God. Here a few photos from Carson meeting Santa...
Jana Dean Rodrigues did these photos. She's incredible and super easy to work with if anyone's interested in having photos done for any occasion.
