Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016 was upon us again! (How fast December goes!) Santa (& lots of family) delivered lots of presents to our home for the Eason family!

Oscar was feeling overly photographic that evening posing in front of the Christmas tree!

And then it was Christmas morning! Here's a cute video of the boys coming down the stairs!

We were all in different stages of being sick - I was on the mend of a 3 week illness, but poor Kade had just started being uber sick - which wouldn't be confirmed as an ear infection until the next day. He was such a trooper that day - I know it was a lot - you can totally see his face is just lacking that happy baby grin he usually has!

Brock wanted to hold hands for the picture, but Kade was having none of it.
 The Eason family rule - you get to open one present of your choice before breakfast - then the rest will wait until after we eat. Brock's first present was the Playskool Millennium Falcon.

I love his little tongue sticking out while he concentrates on his unwrapping.

Brock's favorite new pajamas - Star Wars Hanna Anderssons! ;)

The big hit of the day was Papa's gift - the bug vacuum (and all the bug equipment at that)! What an awesome "mistake" to purchase two - one for each boy - it was something they definitely would have fought over! ;)

Yup, Brent was excited about his new drill bits. It looks like Brock was too!

Kade was my bow hoarder!

Here's another cute movie of the boys unwrapping extravaganza!!

We love our Little People set! And what a cool set with a huge elephant from Great-Aunt Carol and Great-Uncle Jeff!

Uncle Brian & Aunt Nancy - that Mr. Potato Head is very cool! The boys love making faces and I love that it makes for easy clean-up with its own bin! ;)

Brock was really a great big brother that morning - helping Kade open his presents, but not completely taking over!

Grandma was in town as well! I know she loved being able to watch the boys open their presents in person!

The rest of the week was spent playing with the oodles of presents we received from Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles, and Cousins!! These are some well-loved boys!

Brock thoroughly enjoys this "build it yourself toy" from Grandpa and Grammy! What a valuable life lesson learning "Leftie Loosie, Rightie Tightie"!!

Thank you Aunt Katherin for this very noisy gift! ;)
He is super cute when he plays it. Brock loves it too.... but he's a little rougher than Kade. ;) Here's another cute video!

Aunt Carol and Uncle Jeff were in town for Hanukkah visiting Andrew, Lauren and Ara in Kirkland! We were able to enjoy dinner with them right before they headed off to the airport! (We had to give the littles some time to get over their ear infections. Yup - BOTH had ear infections over the holidays!) :(

Not easy taking a picture with this many people... and this many young people! But we did it! Yay for family!!
