Christmas 2009

On Christmas eve we sat down and each opened one present, as is the tradition in our house. Landon set the tone for the rest of Christmas by opening Ollie’s present for him, as a helpful older brother.

Landon and Daddy made some dairy free and gluten free cookies. We frosted them and spent some time decorating them for Santa to eat. Landon really liked the cookies.

Landon slept very well on Christmas eve night, so that Santa could come and leave presents. He left a nice haul for both Landon and Ollie.

Landon enjoyed opening all gifts under the tree. He “helped” Ollie with all of his, which was a good thing, since Oliver spent most of the morning asleep, as is his habit. Landon got some cool stuff, including an awesome Batman shirt, a ton of books, and many “things with wheels.” Oliver got some books and some clothes as well.

After Christmas morning, we spent a lot of time opening the boxes gifts came in, which is always a trial when opening presents meant for young kids. Toys are over packaged these days. We managed to get everything open and put away, and then have a nice lunch. After nap we went out to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for the big family gathering and Christmas celebration. Almost everyone was there this year, Landon and Ollie were missing one cousin and one uncle. Both boys got a ton more gifts

Since not everyone was there, we didn’t get a family photo, but we did get a good picture with most of the Grandkids:
