The Weekend & Christmas Part 2

Christmas was wonderful!
X seriously got enough toys from everyone that we could get rid of all of his other toys and still have a house full!
It was so nice this year to watch him open gifts and truly be excited by the presents he was receiving. Kind of made me feel like a kid again :)

We headed up north to celebrate with my family late Monday afternoon...and the celebrations didn't stop until late last night! 

We arrived at my mom's house and enjoyed a wonderful dinner...I didn't have to cook or bring a thing this year to any of our meals! YEH! 
It was great to just sit back, enjoy laughs and good food with my family. Of course we shared presents as well...

Sorry ahead of time for the poor quality photos....I only had my iPhone with me :(

 X loved the football helmet my little cousin had when we saw him last time! They decided to give him his own Browns helmet & jersey :) He loved wearing it around while opening presents!

X received this enormous (picture does not do it justice) TONKA firetruck from my mom and he loved pressing the buttons to make noises and such :)

 On our way to my dad's house Monday night we drove past a house that had their lights set to music and enough blow up decorations for the whole neighborhood! #onlyinsheffieldlake :)

 Every year my dad has a sports tree set up in the basement (aside from their regular tree). He has so many ornaments now that some of them aren't able to be put on the tree!
I think it is time for a bigger tree :)

 X is a typical boy!

 First time eating powdered donut holes was a messy success :)

 X was so excited to open Christmas presents at my dad's Christmas Eve that he wouldn't stand still for a picture!

 X loved playing around with my dad's new Cleveland Indians slippers :)

 X was super surprised and loved his new Schwinn tricycle from my dad! He just kept saying "BIKE!" the whole day!

 We arrived home around dinner time on Christmas Eve to a package waiting for us ;) We let X open up the bag to see our new Christmas Eve pj's!
We then enjoyed some popcorn & hot cocoa while we watched The Polar Express together :)

 I tried this overnight recipe (similar here) in the crock pot this year for Christmas morning breakfast. Mic really liked it, but I wasn't a big fan :(

 On Christmas morning it was clear that Santa had visited our home! 

Santa left X a work bench that he absolutely loved!

 One of his favorite TV shows is Phineas & Ferb...He loved his new Perry sweatshirt and stuffed dolls :)

 We are officially the house that was built by Hot Wheels!!!
He was in heaven!!!

 Loved my new tee from Mic...Midwest is Best! :)

 It was now time to have our 3rd Christmas dinner and celebrate with Mic's parents. I absolutely love the Christmas dishes that my MIL uses. It has the entire "Twas the night before" story :)

 Again being a typical boy playing with his new trains tracks for his Chuggington trains :)

 After a long day of opening gifts, X was ready for a good nap...I guess "P" was as well :)

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
Thank you to all my family and friends for making this Christmas the most magical yet!
Kind of sad to see it go, but I am ready for a new year!

I will featuring the best parts of 2013 next week!
