Have yourself a Merry little Christmas!

December 24, 2009

As I said in my post we did our Christmas a little early this year.

Ezra checking out all the presents

"Presents.....For ME!?!"

Ezra's gift that came all the way from Austriala!

Ezra holding his little blue car.

We gave hime ten little cars all wraped seperatly. This blue car was this first he opened and it ended up being his favorite. He would use the little car to help him open his next only to look at the new one and throw it over his shoulder.

Playing with "little blue"

Vroom vroom!

"Is it for me?"


Ryan got one of his favorites....bacon cheder, cheese in a can.

Our FAVORITE Christmas present from 2008!!!!!!!

We had a wonderful day relaxing in our jammies! We got to Skpe with my family in OZ! Because of the time difference our Christmas eve is their Christmas. When we were done Skying, they were off to the beach!!! That night we went to Port of Subs for dinner and then to Albertsons. Albertsons is where Ryan and I had gone the year before on Christmas eve right before my water broke. I was glad to be pushing my baby around in a cart this year!

Santa is coming TONIGHT!

December 23, 2009
NO, I didn't mix up the date! Santa came to our house on the night of the 23rd or very early in the morning on the 24th. We are unsure....we were sleeping. The reason Santa visited the Petersen house early is because Ryan had to work on the 25th and we wanted to have our own full day of celebrating. Thank you Santa for your cooperation!!!!
The title of this post is a quote from my niece Ivy. She had been talking about Santa and how he was coming, it's been really fun. Christmas Eve she was talking to my parents and said, "Santa is coming TONIGHT!" The poor girl still thinks he is coming.......She didn't see him so he must not have come yet.
WOW! Let me just have a little taste

This is much easier!

I had to post this picture because it doesn't even hardly look like Ezra

Hurry Santa!
Ezra left Santa some green beans and water. Santa needs healthy food after eating all those cookies!!!

Ezra not wanting to look at the camera

The best part about our visit to the Magical Forest was running into my Grandma, Uncle Ryan, Uncle Damon and Kim! They were volunteering.
Ezra still not looking at the camera.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree

Poor Ezra is currently trying to cut FOUR molars! His gums are swollen to almost triple their normal size! Sleeping has been terrible because the pain wakes him up. I have to say last night he did really good. Two nights ago was the worst....he woke up almost every hour!!!!!!! I was so exhausted when 2:30 rolled around, I didn't think I could handle the lack of sleep. Then the most wonderful thing happened.......I got to snuggle my baby! Ezra is not big on snuggling anymore so this was such a treat! I laid there with him listening to him breath and the little sounds he makes while sleeping. I felt his little hands brushing my skin and his chest moving up and down. I so miss the days when he was tiny and he let us snuggle him. I know it is something I took for granted! I am sad my sweet baby has to go through this pain, but I know it is something we all must do. I am thankful for the sleepless night that I spent with my son!
