Christmas with the Carlile's!

We had a great Christmas. On Christmas Eve we attempted our tradition of matching PJs, but I'm not very adept and the first pair I made for Abe were way too little (nightmares from last year) and the second pair were huge. In fact they looked like MC Hammer pants. Needless to say, no one else got jammies this year.
I'm grateful that you can't see me trying to get Abe to dance. If you look close you can see my feet kicking.
This video is Abe's first reaction to Santa's loot. You can see in his face that he just woke up. I love the talking we captured. He babbles like that CONSTANTLY. It is so cute. We have a longer video we are going to post on YouTube for interested parties, I'll post the link once we have it up.
It was just such a wonderful day to relax and spend together. Thanks to G & G Carlile, G & G Tucker, the Davis', and Cole Brock and Zane for all the gifts you sent. We loved them. Below are some of our favorite pictures of the day. Ken recieved a weed whacker and rake from Santa and I got a bread machine, not only from Santa, but a second one from my mom! Luckily Santa saved his reciepts and I can return one for something else.

The first present he went for under the tree was this plane.

One tired kid. Helping Dad open the Little People Zoo. Thanks G & G Carlile! The zoo is awesome. We all loved playing with it. This is Abe's awesome apron from the Davis family. We all got one, they are great. We can't wait to use our Paula Dean kid's cookbook too!I love the frog my cousins sent me! Nice choice Cole, Brock, and Zane!This present was addressed to Abe, but I think it was more for Ken than Abe. (If you can't see, the shirt reads: I've got an awesome Dad)Reading my new book. My mom made these awesome animal pillows for all the grandkids. Abraham loved his monkey!Fresh bread on Christmas! I loved my present!

I love that bread maker! It looks really nice. Looks like Abe made quite the haul, what a fun day! And, you can definitely tell he just woke up in that video. You didn't drag him out of bed at 4:00 in the morning, did you??

Wow! Abe scored with the Christmas presents. Funny that he got the same zoo as Izzy. I think it is so fun and a great learning toy. Christmas is so fun with happy kids and Abe is so stinking cute. I really like his monkey pillow. Nice job Grandma!

Merry Christmas! It does look like Abe scored big. And his babbling is so cute!

Man you have to make me some of that bread next time I come over. The picture of Abe with the monkey is my favorite.

Abe and my youngest look nothing alike, but Abe sure does remind me of mine. They act a lot the same. Its sad that Burner isn't coming with me to NC in March I bet they would have a blast together:(

I can't believe you didn't wrap the gifts! You are the I can't wait to open presents queen! The PJ's didn't look that bad (he'll grow into them). I'm glad you had a great Christmas. Abe's babbling was adorable!
