It Came and It Went!

It came and it went! Christmas went by so fast and we had a lot of fun! I feel like I just put up my decorations and now it is time to take them down! Enjoy all of the pictures from our festivities!

Hunter baking cookies at Granna's house for Santa! He was a big help in the kitchen!

We made cookies, Christmas mix (the white chocolate stuff), fudge, iced cookies, and a Christmas tree cake! Needless to say, it is not helping me lose the rest of my baby weight!

Hunter opening up Lightning McQueen at Papaw's and Nanny's! They also got him a CARS car wash! He played with it the rest of the time we were there!

Brody, Nanny, and his Tickle Me Elmo! He's so alert and really enjoys looking around now!

Edwin (Brett's brother) holding Brody while we get the presents ready at Granna's! The boys were ready to dive into them!

And Brody decides to eat instead of open presents! :) Lea Anne (Edwin's wife) is expecting their second baby due in June! They find out what they are having in January and I can't wait! Maybe she'll break the cycle and have a girl!

Kase and Hunter playing together before they have to head home! We cleaned up Granna's house and headed home to go to bed so Santa could come visit us!

Santa has arrived! "Santa" wanted to take everything out of the box so it would be ready for Hunter to play with, but "Mrs. Claus" convinced him to leave some in the box because she likes how it looks by the tree better! Brody also received a note that his new swing would arrive January 15th! Santa figured it was OK since Brody didn't really know what was going on this Christmas!

What a sweet looking present! We woke Brody up when Hunter got up, so shortly after this, he was out for a nap! He is such a good baby and look at that chubby face! I could just eat him up :)

Hunter admiring all of his new toys! He must have been a good boy this year!
Playing with his new Geotrax Toy Story train! He played and played and played with it all day!

Now it's time to clean up all the chaos and my house is an absolute mess! It is worth it though and we had a great time! Happy Birthday Jesus and we are very thankful for the reason for the season! I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas!

Yikes! The ice and cold weather are here! I love Brody's expression in this picture! They called off school here so Hunter does not have preschool again until January- yeah for Christmas break! It was so bad, they even shut down the plant where Brett works! We are enjoying the extra family time and plan to finish our Christmas shopping this weekend!

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town!

It is officially Christmas time in the Spradlen household! The tree is up, garland hung, and the decor is out! Our SIL invited us to go to Bass Pro with them to meet Santa and we waited five hours for him! They arrived there first and got our Santa Bass Pass! We didn't get to see Santa until 8:30!!!

Brody was a little upset when I first handed him to Santa! Santa rocked him and was saying, "shhh!" It was a sweet moment!

His fussiness didn't last long and we got a great, first picture with Santa! We woke Brody up to do this, so of course he was tired, but was a great trooper!

Now, I know there is no picture of Hunter! Every time we asked Hunter if he wanted to see Santa, he would say, "No thanks!" We decided we wouldn't force the issue because what's the point of getting a bad picture and causing a scene! At the very end, he walked up to Santa with Brett and on the spot, we decided to do a family picture! Now it is quite comical!!! Hunter has an upset look on his face, Brody is turned funny, I'm talking in it and Brett looks the best out of all of us! I need to post the link to the picture from Bass Pro! I'll try and do it soon!

We are looking forward to Christmas and it will be here before we know it!
