First Christmas

Paxton's first Christmas was a very busy experience and he definitely got spoiled. We started on Monday night at Granny V's house. She made a delicious dinner.

And Paxton got lots of presents.

He even helped open a few. He got some cute outfits, pajamas, toys and a first Christmas ornament.

Then Tuesday night we met up with one of mom's family members and Paxton got a Boomer outfit.

On the 23rd, Jared and I went out for our annual Christmas date.

Paxton got to stay with Grandpa for the first time. When he got over there, he had a brand new jumperoo waiting for him. Jared and I went to Red Rock and then to Wal-Mart to buy stocking stuffers for each other. We've done this for several years now and it's so fun to try to sneak around Wal-Mart and not run into each other. This year we ended up getting each other one of the same things.

Christmas Eve started out early at Granny Pat's house. The spread of presents over there is amazing.

Paxton got Granny Pat a plate with his footprints. She loved it.

Paxton got lots of OU clothes, a Thunder sweat suit, a toy iPhone, and lots of other toys.

Later that night we went to Granny's house for the annual Christmas Eve get together. Unfortunately, Paxton was pretty fussy from a long day with short naps and we didn't get to stay very long. I think part of his problem is that he has some separation anxiety and big crowds overwhelm him.

When we came home, we tried to get Pax to open his Christmas Eve present. This is a tradition we did in my family when I was little. Paxton wasn't interested.

Paxton woke up early on Christmas morning and we went in to see what Santa brought.

He wasn't really interested in opening his own presents...especially after he saw this:

Out of all the nice presents we got him, his favorite two things were this $2 ball and a container of puffs from Santa. He's easy to please.

After he had a little nap we went to my mom's house. Paxton got tons more toys and some books and clothes and he got this ball pit:

He also got a Cabbage Patch Kid doll. It was a little boy and he loved it.

He kept leaning over to give it kisses. I never thought my son would have a doll...but he sure does love it.

We spent today getting all his new toys set up and his room rearranged so he has more space to play. It looks like a big boy room now!
