I have some pictures to post of Christmas Eve but they are all on my phone. We went to the 5:00 service at church and then to dinner at Ted's Montana Grill. It was yummy and Jackson refused to eat anything which is par for the course right now. We drove around and looked at Christmas lights in Naperville and then came home to get JJ to bed. After we changed him into his Christmas pajamas, we read The Night Before Christmas. The first picture really shows how excited he was. The next two perfectly capture how the mood changed over the course of about three minutes.
After we said goodnight, we quickly got things set up for Santa and then we went to bed too. We knew JJ would be up at 6!
6:00 came way too early but we were excited for the day. Jackson could spot his toys as he was coming down the stairs.
He was really excited!
I really love this picture!
The 3 gifts that Santa brought.
Daddy is such a good basketball helper.
For some reason we didn't get him any food or dishes to go with the kitchen so it wasn't very exciting for him. Luckily, Aunt Monica and Uncle David gave him so food so it was put to good use later!
He'll have to grow into the hoop.
After he opened his stocking we got dressed and went to church. He looked so handsome in his Christmas clothes. We came home and opened a few more gifts before naptime.
He was getting really overwhelmed with all of the new things in the room so we took a break with about 5 gifts left to open. We had lunch, he took a nap, and then he opened the remaining gifts. He really seemed to enjoy the day and he loves his new toys. We are moving most of the toys to the basement so our living room doesn't look like a daycare. :)
Jackson had a great Christmas so we did too!
