First of all, I forgot the camera when we went over to Landon's family's house to celebrate Christmas. This is beyond unfortunate because I REALLY wanted to take pictures over there and James and everyone. We LOVE our camera that Landon's parents gave us last Christmas, and I just hate we forgot it at their house. BUT, Landon's mom took some pictures with her camera, so stay tuned - I'm hoping to get some of those at some point. After we got back home, I took a couple of pictures of James' favorite gifts from Nanna and Grandaddy.
His one - his "go-pa-ga". That's what he calls basketball. Don't ask me why. Just sounds like it to him I guess. He loved this gift so much that he woke up the next morning after receiving it asking me about it. Go-pa-ga? Go-pa-ga? He is even doing better actually letting go of the ball and not just dunking it in. Landon says we are going to make millions off him and retire early :) HA.
This is another big winner - the ta-ti. Who doesn't love a ta-ti? The only thing he seems unsure about it that if you push a button, the tractor moves by itself, and when that happens, James goes behind a chair and hides :)
Okay, as for me, my big gift from the Frymire's was a KitchenAid mixer!!! WHAT!!!??? I know, exciting.
Here is my first creation - a Pecan streusel sour cream pound cake. It's not like 4 stars...so I probably wouldn't make it again, but it's pretty good, and the mixer was AWESOME. Uh, except I have to learn that once you put the flour in, you have to start it on a really low setting to let it get mixed up good before you do it to #6.
Okay! Christmas with the Wise's! Here's Krista and me and James. James has been calling Krista "Kitty" which is HILARIOUS to me. He can halfway say Matt's name - just Ma without the tt's.
After Santa Claus, church that morning, a 6 hour drive to Florida with no food, and finally home with family opening presents. Tired, but happy :)
Are my parents cute or what??
This is a WREATH. No one I gave it to seemed to know what it was. Landon thought it was a picture frame. Clearly, Daddy did not know either.. :)
Ah, a classic. Potato Head...
Grandma and Grandpa came to visit one night. I LOVE THEM. So thankful James has gotten the chance to know them.
We also had a visit from Steph...but uh, no pictures :(
A GREAT Christmas. We are beyond blessed with our families.
