A Christmas to Remember....Part Two

DSC_0061-1
After a wonderful time with my family on Christmas Eve we got home and left out our cookies for Santa. Once Bradley was tucked away in bed, Chris and I got everything ready under the tree. This is one of my favorite parts of Christmas, just the two of us getting everything ready and the anticipation of what's to come. Granted we also found out we were having a baby girl, so I didn't a lot of sleep on Christmas Eve. Here is the tree set up with all of the gifts.....Santa left all of his presents wrapped in Thomas the Train paper of course!!

I had to put this photo first, because it is the perfect picture to describe Christmas Day. One happy little 'cowboy' with his 'Woody' doll and his larger than life Thomas the Train set. He was loads of fun Christmas morning. Just so excited about all of his gifts. The first thing he did when he came downstairs was run past ALL of the amazing gifts to check and see if Santa ate his cookies. Once he checked Santa's plate he turned around to discover an entire room filled with new toys!!! It was priceless!! He lit up and yelled, "What's ALL this??" Chris and I were just laughing at him walking past everything with Santa's cookies on his mind!

Bradley had to walk past this entire new train set to check the table behind it for Santa's cookies. It was priceless!

There were also a lot of fun presents under the tree for Chris and I. We did spend a majority of Christmas day watching Chris play his new Wii!! He loves the new Cabella's Hunting game I bought him...or should I say he is addicted!! Santa treated me well, here are some of the fun things that I got this Christmas:

I can see from the pictures how excited Bradley was. When my 13 year old was little he LOVED Thomas The Train too. Boys... they are so cute!

Clare,

Not sure how I missed this post. Looks like such a joyful Christmas. I so remember one year when Dave built Will a train table and he got all of the Thomas stuff. Those years are magical. Bradley will play with them for a LONG time.

You and Chris did very well too I would say;)
