Is That You, Santa Claus?

Sawyer must have been extra good this year, because Christmas did not disappoint!

We started the festivities at Great Grandmother Mimi's house with appetizers and presents.  I love going to GG Mimi's because she always read the Christmas story from the bible.  This year, Sawyer had the privilege of placing baby Jesus in the manager.  It's a special tradition!

We left GG Mimi's to go to Uncle Kim and Aunt Beth's house for some more delicious, calorie-laden food and presents.  My side of the family is not very big, so I treasure our family gatherings.  Sawyer was spoiled rotten at both places, and I think he enjoyed the wrapping paper more than anything.

We were nestled in bed that evening when Santa stopped by.  We didn't leave milk and cookies this year, but jolly St. Nick didn't seem to mind.  He left Sawyer a big truck to ride in outside, a train track, toy trucks, clothes, and plenty of books!

I think I was more excited than Sawyer to see what Santa had left! He went straight for the truck and did a little dance.  Daddy has had fun pushing him around and around and around the living room.

Later that day, we headed to Mimi and P-Paw's house.  My mom has always cooked Christmas dinner, but next year I'll be taking over the tradition.  Mimi loves houseshoes and is always wearing hers, so she bought Sawyer a pair of his own. 

The day after Christmas, we hauled our last load of presents to Gigi and PawPaw's house for more Clower shenanigans.  Leighton loved helping Saw with his presents this year, and Sawyer loves any chance to eat Leighton's hair! Sawyer's loot included an activity table, blocks, a big dump truck, and a saw named Sawyer!

To say that our little guy is well loved is an understatement!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17
