Christmas - Our 3 Day Celebration

Okay, so I'm not so good at taking pictures. We started our Christmas Celebration on Sunday and I got a total of 5 pictures - all of the boys on Christmas morning opening gifts, and not looking at the camera. But I have a good memory so that will have to do. Sunday we celebrated at my sister's house with my family (my siblings and our spouses and kids and my parents). We had dinner and the kids played and then we opened gifts. The best gift ever....We're going to Disneyland! My parents got us a Disney gift card so we can now take our kids. We're planning a trip for March since we've been telling Trevor since he was 2 we'd go to Disneyland on his next birthday. He'll be 5 in March so we can finally make good on our promise. Monday was the traditional Faircloth Christmas Eve dinner where we had aunts and uncles, cousins, second cousins, grandmas and grandpas and even some great ones too. It was a lot of fun, a lot of people and a lot of food. Santa came to visit and Trevor waited patiently until his name was called last of all to go sit on Santa's lap. Christmas morning the boys woke up around 7, Trevor ran right downstairs to see if Santa had come. We read a little from the scriptures and talked about Jesus being born and the gifts He gives us before opening presents. Half way through Trevor said, "okay, okay..." wanting to get to his new Thomas train. It was a nice day - the boys played with their gifts all day long, mostly with the castle we got them and stayed in their pj's all day too. We had leftovers for lunch and cereal for dinner. Now, as Trevor said this morning "Christmas is over, let's take the tree down." But it was a good year, with lots of blessings and things to be grateful for. Now we have the baby to look forward to (we got the crib set up last night) and some fun plans coming up (here we come Mickey!) We hope you all had a Merry Christmas and that the new year brings everyone we love much joy and many blessings.

Sorry; I deleted that comment. My mom was logged in on my computer. Anyway, I said that we didn't take many pictures either because it can be hard when so much is happening. Also, we are going to Disneyland sometime in the spring too! It's on my dad as a present for graduation.
