Creegan, Eddie, and Peter each received an ornament of their initial. Creegan seemed to think his would be edible. As they say, “C is for cookie.”
In addition to the lovely items shown here, my stocking included a chocolate orange, a can of cashews, a Snickers, a Whatchamacalit, and some awesome guitar-shaped ornaments.
Melanie received several books for Christmas (one from me, but three from Santa!). Here is Melanie with Flunking Sainthood by Jana Riess.
A cool new necklace.
A friend who was moving donated a huge train set to us. Melanie and I gave this to our kids. They have played with it quite a bit so far.
Costumes for Christmas…
Super Mario for Eddie, from Mom and Dad.
Captain America for Peter, from Uncle Tom.
The Incredible Hulk for Eddie, from Uncle Tom.
Sometime shortly before Christmas, Edison and Peter discovered VTech Switch & Go Dinos. They both wanted one very badly. Melanie’s parents sent them for Christmas. Peter’s dinosaur is his very favorite Christmas gift this year.
Some other gifts from Grandma and Grandpa…
I absolutely love Creegan's expression here.
