This is going to be somewhat of a picture post, since it was super busy this long weekend. I hope you had a great holiday weekend. Well We better get this started!
Sunday we celebrated Christmas #2 It was with my wife’s grandparents, her mother, and her sister. They made the trip even though there was supposed to be a big storm. Thank fully we didn’t get much of it. Side note, speaking of storms check out Erie, PA. I live about an hour and a half from there and they got record breaking amounts of snow this weekend. like over 50 inches in two days. Wow!
Everett is hanging out with his great grandma and her nice boot, in this first picture.
Later we decided to get the party started and do some gift giving. We, of course, needed a picture of our baby in front of it all. A little drooly but still cute!
Although he really doesn’t know what is going on, and only wants to eat everything he touches, it still looks like he was pretty excited. He knew this wasn’t a normal day.
Have you ever seen a 7 month old so excited to get a couple of DVDs?!?
Opening gifts with his mom and grandma they decided it would be best for him to wear a ribbon until he could find a nice hat!
Once he found a nice hat the ribbon was replaced and all was well within the baby world.
I’m not sure he knew how to conquer this next tower of gifts.
The rest of the day was spent catching up with one another and having a nice meal. It was nice not to have to travel back for Christmas for once. His aunt got him this nice Teddy Bear and it was a challenge to get him to pose in anyway with it. It was his very first Christmas morning, and Christmas #3 was held by just the three of us. 😀 He was trying to eat the tags and bow the whole time. haha.
Later that day we prepared for Christmas #4 with my side of the family. Thankfully they only live one city block away. Before we left we tried to take a few family selfies, if anything they are memorable.
My two brothers, my parents, sister in-law, niece, and brother’s girlfriend were all at my parents house as well. Here is my dad feeding Everett his bottle.
We again had a nice meal and were able to catch up with one another. We also had the Steelers game on since the rest of my family are Steelers fans. Makes sense right? I’m the odd one out. We loaded the car at the end of the night and headed home. We had our first Christmas experience as parents and I would say it was a huge success. We will have to do it again sometime 😉
I forgot to mention the boy got a ball pit! At first he was pretty terrified and I almost passed out blowing it up, but he came around and so did I!
Lastly here is my baby boy hanging out in his crib yesterday as happy as could be!
Again I hope you all had a great weekend, and were able to spend some time with your loved ones. If it is as bitter cold as is it here, bundle up and stay safe. If not, well…I’m jealous haha. Have a great day! 😀 😀
