So, I realize that this post is a bit delayed. Okay, really delayed. But I still wanted to share Aidan's first Christmas with you anyway, even though it's mid-January.
I mentioned the other day that I've had a "case of the Mondays" ever since we got back, which is why I haven't posted anything about our Christmas yet. So, since this was\s Aidan's first Christmas, and we visited a lot of family... I think I'll just put in a plethora of pictures instead of lots of words.
We spent Christmas Eve with Nana and Papa (Jason's parents).
We had a delicious Christmas dinner prepared by Nana and Aidan enjoyed eating. He sampled pretty much everything but the turkey.
Then it was on to the presents....
Uncle Andrew came up from Florida to surprise Nana and Papa for Christmas. He was only able to stay a day and a half, but it was so great to see him!
Christmas morning we headed over to Gram and Grandpa D's house (my family). It was CRAZY as usual, with about 20 of us crammed into a room around the tree.
With electric sex gleaming in the window, of course!
Gram, Aunt Nana, Uncle Steve and I all made everybody a HUGE Christmas breakfast before we opened presents.
Aidan was pretty tired after opening only a few of his presents, so Daddy laid him down for a nap.
It's a good thing because Aunt Emily and Uncle Denny had a surprise for everybody....
Marshmallow blaster fight!!
Let me just tell you that this lasted almost an hour with everybody from my mother to my 3 year-old niece joining in on the action. All of the grown men in the room were transformed into little boys within seconds of opening up those blasters! It was hilarious! (And yes, that is Jason hiding behind the couch.... Ha ha!)
We left around 3pm and headed down to Jason's grandparents house for the remainder of the day. His Grandma is a wonderful cook and made a terrific Christmas feast! After that it was time for more presents.
Aidan was the only kiddo there, but he had a great time playing with his new toys!
It was a long day for everybody, but especially for the little man. He did very well overall and was ready for bed by 8pm. I'm so glad that we were able to celebrate his first Christmas with all of our families!
