belated Christmas post

Yes, I do realize I am a little behind on the times since it is Jan. 3 and I am just getting around to posting about our wonderful Christmas.

This Christmas was extra special because it was Sawyer's first! It was, of course, crazy as usual with running around from family to family to make sure everyone got equal amounts of time with us, but fun nonetheless.

Christmas Eve was spent at the Wallace gathering at Josh's Aunt Becky's and was a good time as usual. I only got a few pics there since I was too busy stuffing my face with seafood boil and other yummies.

We started Christmas morning at our house this year, which was great since it gave Sawyer time to play with all his presents from Santa before church.

Then after church we ventured to my parent's house to open gifts there where Sawyer was introduced to tissue paper and was ALL about it.

he doesn't discriminate, he puts EVERYTHING he can get his hands on into his mouth

... then went to Josh's grandparent's house to open all the gifts from his grandparents and his parents. Needless to say, I was so busy opening my and Sawyer's presents that I didn't get to take any pictures there.

Tomorrow I will run down all the fun stuff we got for Christmas this year, though I must say that Sawyer definitely racked up the most.
