Christmas Celebrations

Christmas celebrations this week started on Wednesday for us.  I don't have any pictures from Wednesday because I forgot my camera (can you believe that-me without a camera).

Thursday we went to the Christmas Eve service at church.
(sorry the picture is blurry-when I handed off my camera, I forgot I had put it on manual focus)

After church we went to Scott's sister's house in Pequot Lakes.
Uncle Kyle picking on Matthew.  Kyle put a hair clip in Matthew's hair and it was so cute how Matthew tried several times to look up and try and see it.

We had our traditional Oyster stew and appetizers.
Matthew was showing off after eating in Emma's rocking chair.  He almost gave me a heart attack.  He was standing it in and leaning back and then smiling about it.

Then we opened presents. 
Matthew made out like a bandit at all Christmas get togethers.

He sure has fun opening presents.

He had to try on his new shirt right away.  He got some cute Nike shoes.

Showing off another summer shirt.

And of course enjoying the box more than the present!

Then Christmas morning, Daddy helped him open presents.

This fleece jacket was made and given to him from our neighbor.

Opening more.

Even the cat had to investigate!

Just tearing the wrapping paper.

Opening his Tonka Chuck and Friends Fire Station.

Taking a quick break after opening the legos. (These were also a gift from the neighbor).

Looking at his Tonka Chuck and Friends Semi Truck.

He just wanted to play with his cars and trucks and not open any more.

Now he is happy.  He got his cars back.

After we opened presents on Friday morning, we went to Scott's aunt's house for lunch and some visiting.  Then we went to my mom's house for dinner and some more present opening. 

Do you see the black and blue truck that Matthew is sitting on the above and below pictures?
It is a truck chair that my sister crocheted.  Her husband helped cut the foam for the inside.
Did you notice that is black?
She made it so that it matched Daddy's truck.

His last present was a foam race track mat.  He has had fun with it all day today.

We had a wonderful Christmas.
Matthew was so worn out that he slept until 8:30 this morning and then took a 3 1/2 hour nap.  Mommy took a nap today too.  Matthew and I are both sick with a cold going on a week now. 
How was your Christmas?
