JD had a blast with his 2nd cousin O-Man (the only cousin to speak of that is even close in age). It was hilarious because JD new that O-Man was not as big as an adult so he was fixated on him. Whenever O-Man would walk away from him he would scream out, like "hey, stick with me guy." It was cute and quite funny!
O-Man and JD...they had so much fun it was hard to get them to sit still for a moment so this was the best shot we got!I was WAY excited because R came this year with Uncle Badgeman! I am normally the only gal there so it was fun to have R there to share the experience with! Can't wait for many years of memories ahead! :)
Grandma Principal is an amazing cook and she outdoes herself at Christmas. We always have Beef Tenderloin with all of the fixings on Christmas Eve and then a Turkey/Ham dinner on Christmas Day. I think we consume more food in a few days time than we normally do in a week...but thats what the holidays are for right?
Mom, this food is AMAZING...why don't I get this for every meal?JD probably had the worst naps and nights rest than he has had in seriously almost a year. I think we learned even more this holiday that he is a social butterfly! He would absolutely scream if we took him away from the crowd for nap time or even bedtime! Normally he is a dream (pardon the pun) in this department so that was a little rough on us. And he did end up with a little cold but so far he has handled being back home very well and (cross our fingers) his cold has not gotten worse! :)
My favorite holiday picture! Sums us up pretty well! :)
Lets see...where can I go next?Santa did visit Grandma Principal's and Grandpa Menard's house (or shall I say all of his elves did, aka the family). Everyone was very generous and he ended up with amazing books and toys! We are very appreciative and greatful for our families generosity.
Are these all for me? I LOVE Christmas!
