Christmas Vacation

We have had a BLAST while Mommy has been on break from work.  Logan, who normally has no concept of sleeping in, has been sleeping in until about 7:30 or 8 most mornings.  I guess he knew Mommy needed the sleep, too! 

We began celebrating Christmas at my mom's house and of course, she went over the top with decorations, food, and gifts for everyone.

Mackenzie and Logan were a little to busy with the iphones to notice much else!

After dinner, they enjoyed ice cream cones!

Then, we opened presents!  Logan got a very cool cash register and Mickey outfit from my mom.  He was very excited about both!

After that we headed to my brothers for a sleep over.  Mackenzie and Logan snuggled up to watch Elf on the Shelf movie.  They were all bundled up with The Grinch quilt G.G. made. 

Logan was in rare form on Christmas Eve, due to his lack of a nap, so he was a little bit of a bear.  We drug him to church at 4:30, and of course in the midst of a meltdown in the car, he fell asleep about 1/2 way to church.  Chris stayed in the car with Logan, while we went into church.  It was a great service with a candle lit Silent Night at the end.  (Always makes me tear up).   G.G. even came with us, which made it so much better.
After church, we headed back to Mimi and Pop's house for gumbo and presents.  To say we were all SPOILED ROTTEN would not even come close to being accurate. 
Here are a few of the pictures:

Logan got a new pair of pajamas and wanted to try them on, but of course, had to do it himself!

hmm...almost.  Good try!
Mimi got the boys these awesome suitcases.  The kids can actually ride them while you pull them through the airport or where ever your travels take you!

They also got Mickey suitcases for sleepovers.  Okay Mimi, I get the message, you think Logan needs to spend the night!

Gigi got to hold sweet Shiloh!

We went home to get to bed so Santa could come see us.  We talked about Santa, but Logan was still a little to young to really get it.  Mommy, Daddy and G.G. sure had fun! 

I snuck down after Santa visited and look what I saw!

Logan woke up Christmas morning and running down the stairs screaming, "Mommy, Daddy, look what Santa brought me" and then he tore into all of his gifts while screaming with delight.  UMMM....Yeah NOT EVEN CLOSE!

Logan decided he needed to start his morning with his favorite video...Elf on the Shelf

We tried showing him all of the awesome things Santa brought him, but instead, Logan wanted to read one of his favorite animal books...Oye...I think Santa's feelings were starting to get hurt.

Mimi and Pop came over for breakfast and we opened a few more gifts. 

G.G. made Logan two more beautiful quilts.  The first picture is The Grouchy Ladybug and the second is Goodnight Moon, which just so happens to be Logan's favorite book.  She also made him an adorable matching pillow case.  He is so lucky!

I bet this was G.G.'s sweetest gift!  Kisses from her great grandson!

A little later Granddaddy and Barbara came over and Logan got even more cool stuff!

After all of that excitement and fun family time there was only one thing left to do...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!  Can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for us!
