blessed beyond belief

michael and i are so lucky to have families that are so incredibly giving. we were astonished at all the packages we received this year. i'm sure the UPS driver in our area knows our names and address by heart. everyday we received another gift for our sweet boy. it truly is amazing and we are so thankful for our families and all they do. i'm starting to think our next house will have to have a toy house (guest house) included! lol we are overwhelmed with toys. when i told people we needed new fun stuff to play with as we wait this cold winter out- they delivered! so much so i think michael and i need to part with a few pieces of furniture! totally kidding! take a look for yourself...

this isn't including the bath tub full of toys that i have no where to store! (and clothes/pjs that he needed so much!) kane's lulu was so sweet when she asked what kane wanted/needed i replied not a thing! so she got him stock. she wants him to learn about the stock market and be responsible with money. this is something that michael loves to do so i can just see my two boys checking their stocks everyday together! plus she got him his first pair of cowboy boots!!! they have not arrived yet but we are expecting them any day! so excited to dress my little cowboy up! i think next year we will have to tell people to put money in kane's account because this is just crazy. too crazy. i thought all of his infant things were overwhelming.

ok so here's the rundown on christmas eve/morning....

christmas eve michael was post call so he got home around noon, the boys napped then we all got ready for a fabulous dinner at eddie merlots! (thanks lulu!) the food was to die for! kane had the whole place in chuckles. he started cracking up laughing for no reason and i got so nervous because it's not exactly a kid friendly place but when everyone turned around and smiled it made me relax. my sweet happy boy knew santa would be coming soon!

i don't think he wanted his picture taken!

k had a blast stepping on and off the box

the reindeer food we made and hung on a tree outside

after we put kane to bed michael and i started on the train table. i LOVE putting things together- no idea why but i have always been like that. we got it done within 2 hours and then michael went to bed. i was so excited i could not fall asleep! i love having a kid on christmas morning! kane finally woke up and was in shock! he couldn't stop touching everything. especially the singing, dancing animals... thanks grandma. lol these things have been playing constantly since we got them.
