After the exitement of the new swingset we got ready and headed to church for the candle light carol service.
We celebrated Christmas 4 times this year and had a great time at each celebration.
The first celebration was at home with just our little family of 3. When Jacob was born both Wayne and myself agreed that we would make it a point to always be in our home on Christmas morning so Jacob could always wake up in his home that morning. When he gets older if he wants to go visit family then we will rethink but for now while he is little it is important to us for him to be at his home on Christmas morning.
He had a rough night sleeping the night before and was up part of the night, of course Santa had already been to the house so Wayne had to get up and cover everything with blankets so the surprises would still be surprises. When we got up Christmas morning he was so excited to see that Santa had left him a power wheels 4 wheeler, a race track, and lots of goodies in his stocking. Some of his favorite things he received from mommy and daddy were a few Max and Ruby dvds and a bunch of Hot Wheels cars.
The next day we drove to Edgefield to celebrate Christmas with Jacob's Grandaddy (Wayne's dad). We also were able to celebrate with Jacob's great aunt Ruth and great uncle Kevin who were down visiting from Kentucky. Once again he received many great presents but again a few of his favorites were the dancing Mickey Mouse, a John Deere musical band toy, and a remote control car.
Once again he recieved a bunch of great presents but some of his favorites were a truck with a bunch of little cars inside, some Max and Ruby books, and a suitcase called a Trunkie that he can ride on as well.
