Christmas 2011 ~ Barrett's 1st Christmas

We had such a wonderful Christmas!!  This was Barrett's 1st Christmas and I was so excited to see his reactions to everything!!

Mommy and Barrett made handprint ornaments using Barrett's handprint for our tree and Nonnie and Jeanie.

We spent Christmas Eve at Ben's parents with Luke, Meredith and Hal.  We went over about lunch time to just hang out, exchange gifts, visit, and eat a yummy dinner.  This was also our first time to see Hal since he was about 2 weeks old!! 
Pops (Ben's dad) read the Christmas story from the Bible to all of us before we had our gift exchange.  Ben and I received some goodies and Barrett received lots of toys from Luke, Meredith and Hal and got a TRACTOR from Pops and Jeanie!  He is going to have a BIG time on this tractor for a long long time!!  The boy is obsessed with all things that have a steering wheel!!

Hal and Barrett even took their first bath together!  Too cute!

Once we got back to Papa T and Nonnie's house that night, we put Barrett to bed and the adults exchanged gifts.  Ben and I got lots of goodies and had fun watching everyone open their gifts.

Barrett actually noticed the presents sitting in front of the fireplace that Santa had left and was excited to go look at them.  Santa even filled our stockings, too!!! 

Santa brought Barrett a "busy box"!

Mommy, Daddy, and Barrett checking out what Santa brought!!

After Barrett had his bottle, we had coffee, and he played with his Santa gifts some...Barrett got to open ALL his presents from us and Nonnie, Papa T and Aunt Whitney!  This boy is spoiled rotten!!!

Happy kiddo!!
