Christmas Eve

I thought I'd post pictures from our Christmas with Richard's parents and Christmas Eve before I tackle our Christmas Day pics.

Richard's parents came the weekend before Christmas to spend some time with us. Grandpa built the boys this rack to hang their trophy bats and balls on. Of course, it's purple and gold!

Cade is savoring his first gift of Christmas.

Richard's parents had these walking sticks made for the boys. They are really cool and the boys LOVE them. They have baseballs carved in them along with their names, baseball bats, lightning bolts, etc.

And, of course, this is what they do with them!

My parents and brother's family came over Christmas Eve. We had the traditional seafood gumbo for dinner and then opened presents.

My parents and the grandkids.

Richard, me and the boys

Joel, Jennifer, Rylan and Auden
Cade made everyone drawings for Christmas. This was for Aunt Jennifer. It's a drawing of their Christmas card.

He drew one for Maw Maw and PawPaw. PawPaw has his arm around MawMaw and has a gift that says "I love you" in his hand for her. So sweet!!

He got this scooter and was so happy. You can see Rylan in the background. He got a scooter too. They rode around the living room all night!

Cade enjoyed opening Wesleigh's presents.

Something tells me she'll be able to get him to do anything she wants ;)

Braden got a new bike. (His old one got ran over by Richard's truck ;)
Bryce helping Rylan.

Cade made sure he put out cookies for Santa.
He wrote this note for him...To cute!

Of course, he had to draw a picture for Santa too. I think he did a great job.

I'll post pics of Christmas Day next.
