Merry Christmas

This has been such a great Christmas! On Christmas Eve, we went to the Christmas Eve service at our church. Parker got to come to the service with us (there was no child care). Some how we ended up on the VERY front row in the was completely full and my family was on the second row (we werent late, just right on time!). Parker did great during the singing and then during the Lord's supper he started getting a little restless. I decided to take him out right after the prayer. As I was walking out (in the very front of the church!!), Parker yells "BYE DADDY, BYE, C-YA!!!" I heard laughing behind me and my family later told me that everyone giggled! That's Parker for you...he doesnt have very good volume control!!!
After church we went to my granmother's house.
Here are all of the grandkids and one great-grandkid

My family
My little family!!

Me and my sweet boy!

Opening presents at Gran's.

I love being at Gran's house on Christmas Eve! It gets sooo loud, we have to pretty much yell at each other to have a conversation.
After Grans, we went to my parents to open gifts from all the brothers and sisters. Parker went to bed during this (it was 8:30). We got him up around 11:30 pm and went home and he went right back to bed.
And then, Dennis and I got everything ready for Santa!

All of Parker's goodies. (please dont tell him, but I used some of his presents from his birthday!! this is probably the last year I can get away with that!!! His birthday is so close to Christmas and he got so many toys this year!)

Parker going in to see what Santa brought!

He was so excited!

There is probably something wrong with this but this nerf shotgun was Parker's favorite gift!! His daddy was so proud!
After Parker played with his stuff from Santa we went to my parent's for breakfast and a late lunch.

Parker and Dennis got matching shirts!! (Dennis's says "Big Guy" and Parker's says "Little Guy")

Parker and my grandmother "mimi"

Parker and his new RadioFlyer!
Parker got to play with my cousin (his second cousin?). She is 3 months younger than him. How cute are her pigtails?!!
We had such a great Christmas and it was so fun to just hang out with family and eat a ton of yummy food!! I hope everyone had a merry Christmas!

It's almost annoying how much he is like Dennis. :) I can see in his Christmas morning picture the same excited reaction that Dennis gets.
