Christmas Morning (2008)

After coming back from Halmonee and Papa's house on Christmas Eve, Mom and Dad told Jared he could sleep in their room as a special treat. This was convenient so that Santa's helpers could assemble his Christmas gift right in HIS room.

This Christmas, Santa brought Jared a train table equipped with this 200 or so piece train set. Santa's helpers were up ALL night Christmas Eve assembling the table and train set. It's a good thing Santa's helpers love Jared SOOO much! :)

Santa also left a special interactive Pooh story book for Baby Josiah.

A very sleepy Jared was pretty excited to wake up and find this special gift in his room!

Here Jared watches the train make its way around the track!

He awaits its arrival around this curve. His favorite phrase of the day was "In my own room-- in my own room, Mommy and Daddy."

Needless to say, the train was a big hit!

After getting dressed to go visit Grandma Betty and Papa Rich, Jared asked to get in Josiah's crib with him. Since Josiah was so little (3 months on Christmas Day), Jared decided to show Josiah his special gift from Santa. Josiah was a bit young to participate in this part of the Christmas festivities this year, but Jared had enough fun for the two of them-- and we have no doubt Baby Siah will be ready for the fun in a year or two! :)

Waiting for Christmas

Jared and Josiah are enjoying every moment of the Christmas season this year... including Christmas pajamas! Jared LOVES these snowglobe-footie pajamas and would wear them EVERY DAY if Mom and Dad didn't require him to let us wash them!

Meeting Santa Claus

On the day we went to get our Christmas photos, Santa happened to be on location and offered to take a photo with the boys. I am not sure how Jared and Josiah felt about it or if they really knew what was going on, but they played along! :)

A Christmas Preview

Yes, I dressed the boys alike this year... I am THAT mom. :) But aren't they adorable??!
