The Night Before Christmas

We spent Christmas Eve with my parents at their house, munching on snacks and watching a movie. The real entertainment was watching Hudson open his first present – stocking stuffers from my parents. We waited until Christmas morning and after Santa had been at our house to open our presents, but Hudson got a little sneak preview by opening a couple of fun toys. He got his own cell phone and car keys (that made noise and played music). He ended up playing with these the entire car trip to and from Iowa. He is still so young, but definitely seemed to get the hang of opening presents. We went home to wait for Santa to come and start the tradition of reading Twas the Night Before Christmas just before bed. Rollie found a version of the book with gorgeous illustrations - starring a pug (that looks exactly like Molly) as one of the main characters!

The best little gift under the tree!

It's funny how he kind of already knows what to do...

He looked so surprised like "Is this for me?"

He was definitely as interested in the packaging as he was the present.

I'm trying to show him how to use the phone. He loved the car keys (they make a "vroom" sound).

Rollie read Twas the Night Before Christmas to him just before bed.
