|Boys opening their first presents of Christmas 2017|
I went downstairs first to get a video of them coming down the stairs....
Per our tradition, the boys opened one present of their choosing, then we stop for breakfast. Brian, Nancy, Maddox and Riley arrived just in time to enjoy pancakes and bacon before opening presents!!
The #1 thing on Brock's list this year was chocolate coins!! What a delight to receive a VERY LARGE container of chocolate coins!!
Christmas went a bit faster this year..... Kade was tearing off wrapping paper just as fast as big brother! He may need a little help with how to correctly play with some of these toys....
Brock inspecting his Lego set from Great-Aunt Carol and Great-Uncle Jeff.
Christmas-Intermission!! Mommy & Daddy got the boys new tablets (technically new tablet for Brent, who passed his down to Brock, who passed his down to Kade.... with new cases, of course), which made everything come to a crashing halt while the boys checked out their new apps.
Brent looks ecstatic after opening his Squatty Potty! ;)
Hmm.... now Brock received a blue helmet just like he asked Santa for.... but what should go with it?
Meanwhile, Kade was unwrapping his large gift...
Ooooh, ice cream!!
Brent explained to Brock that Santa didn't have room under the tree for one of his presents, he had to leave it in the next room... and when Brock walked in the room, his mouth literally dropped!
|Sorry so blurry, trying to take the photos fast!|
SUPER happy boy!!
A few of us still had some presents to open!
Of course Maddox was sleeping through most of this craziness, probably for the best, but he didn't get to participate in the chaos of present-swapping.
But when Maddox did wake up, we attempted a cousin photo shoot with matching shirts!
So sweet of Aunt Nancy to get them for all the boys! They looked adorable! Thank you!
I think I know which little boy was the most cooperative in the photo shoot!
Grandma got in some cuddling action with Baby Maddox!
After an early dinner, Brock got to try out his new Batman bike with training wheels (a very important detail).
|Looking down at his feet while he rides - we have to work on that!|
A snippet from Brock's first day on 2 wheels (plus 2 little ones)!
Time to relax after another successful Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone!
