Christmas 2012

It is hard to believe Christmas has come and gone again.  We had a very Merry Christmas.  Tucker was much more aware of everything going on this year, as opposed to last year when he was just 7 months old!  We spent time with friends and family, celebrated the birth of our Jesus, ate lots of yummy food, and just savored this time of year together as a family.  

Tucker still doesn't fully understand the whole present thing and was a bit overwhelmed by the whole process.  He definitely has the "less is more" thought process and would have been content with just 
one gift.  Now that we are home though, he is enjoying some of his new toys :)

Tucker's big gift was a train table...he loves it and the look on his face was priceless when he saw it!  Definitely my most favorite moment from this Christmas!

He also received a mini Dyson vacuum from Aunt Jana...our little cleaner has very much enjoyed this gift too!  He does such a great job vacuuming :) 

When we returned home on Christmas night, our power was out due to some thunder storms in the area, so we played with "choo choos" by candlelight until it was time for bed.

We are settling back in at home after lots of coming and going.  We spent Christmas morning here at home just the 3 of us, early afternoon at Dustin's grandparent's with the whole Vann side of the family, Christmas night at Dustin's mom's and my sister and her family dropped by our house later on that night too.  Lots of coming and going!  Tucker was a trooper and did great...he was recovering from an ear infection, sat through 2 church services on both Sunday and Monday night, and stayed up much later than he is normally used to a few times this week.  We had a wonderful holiday though and I hope you all did too!  This was our 2nd Christmas as a family of three and it was truly joyful :)
