We said we weren't going to get Cael a lot of presents this year because he has a TON of toys. So we got him a toy box to put all those toys in. Well, I guess we kind of lost track of what we bought him for Christmas, because he ended up having a whole slew of gifts under the tree and in his stocking. Oh well, just more toys to fill his toy box with. We got him a lot of books this year, which he is OBSESSED with. I'm truly happy about that. He'll sit down on the ground or couch, and flip through a book; or bring a book to you and whine for you to read it to him. So he got about 10 or so books for Christmas. He also got some sweaters, 2 pairs of sneakers, a V-Tech learning laptop, and some other little toys. He made out like a bandit this year, that's for sure!
Matt did really well this year for me. I was truly surprised. I got COACH bag and matching wallet, new Ugg slippers, a cast iron Dutch oven, and an Under Armor winter coat. I loved everything. I got Matt an Invicta watch, a new electric razor for his beard, a helicopter he can control with his phone, slippers and a navigation dock for his phone. Overall, we all did well. :)
This was the first Christmas where it was just Matt, Cael and myself. For the last 7 years, we always spent Christmas with Matt's family, in their house upstairs. I missed that this year, but at the same time, it was fun to have our own place, and be able to start our own traditions.
Now for a major photo dump!
