Christmas in Texas

We had three Christmases this year.  We moved on December 6th and headed to Texas for a week.  Before leaving Texas we spent an evening having a great meal, opening presents and playing with all of the boxes and wrapping paper.

 This is William the hippo.  This is actually a backpack but Gus thought it would make a great riding toy.

 John got a camera and he was taking pictures of everything.  And I mean, EVERYTHING.

Every year my Grandmother makes mittens for the boys.  She used to make Mark and I mittens when we were little too.  The boys love their mittens and they always color coordinate with their coats.

Gus' big present from my parents this year was a basketball goal.  I still can't believe we got this thing disassembled and in the car.  You'd be surprised too if you saw our cars.  There wasn't room for even one more thing.

The box for the basketball goal was also a big hit.  There goes John taking more pictures.

 The boys got Toy Story 1 and 2 from Uncle Mark.  You can't really tell from the photo, but they really liked them.

 Of course it wouldn't be a gift giving occasion without some trains.

Here is my little boy with his little bow.  I love that his skin and hair are so light that the flash looks blinding.
