Cousins Jack and Ben talkin’ it over
Tim’s grandparents Gordon & Carolyn Teague
Oh and Gavin also liked the tree…
The toy on the right is Gavin’s Santa present. It makes noise and has little balls that go with it, so it’s definitely a hit with the 7 month old plus crowd (Ben liked it too!). Here are Tim and Ben with their favorite presents. Tim is wearing his new Tony Romo Cowboys jersey and Ben is holding Lady. Oh the joy. I thought Tim might cry when he pulled his jersey out of the box. I cannot remember if he slept in it or cuddled up with it… hmmmm… You see, because I bought him this I get to be his wife for at least another few years! HA!
At first Ben played with his shed on the floor, where Santa had set it up, but then it had to be moved to his train table. It might actually be a tie for favorite present…
Gavin liked his Santa present but unfortunately we did not have the batteries required. Thank goodness Walgreens is open on Christmas Day. The thought of people working there today does upset me but it sure is nice when you need something… So, once those were installed it was much more fun.
We spent the rest of the day just hanging out and our friends Chandler, Claudia and Ethan came over. Ethan brought some of his Christmas presents over and the boys had fun playing together as usual. Have you ever seen a Catepillar bakehoe and T-Rex race before? Well today is your lucky day!
We had a very nice and enjoyable Christmas at home. Although I did miss being with my family at this very special time of the year, I didn”t miss having to lug home all the goods! My parents will be here in a couple of days to celebrate with us and once more I can only be so thankful for the family and friends that surround us.
Of course let us not forget the real “present” of Christmas, the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his Name shall be called: Wonderful, Counselor, All Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” -Isaiah 9:6
