Christmas 2009

We had a nice, relatively quiet Christmas at home this year. It was the first Christmas that Jake got to experience the excitement of Christmas morning. He loved the toys that Santa left for him and I think opening the rest of the presents took a back seat to the initial presents. In fact, Brian and I ended up opening most of the presents because the boy was overwhelmed with too much stimulation.
The initial surprise from Santa Claus--a tool bench.

He loves his Elmo doll! The funny thing is, he calls is "dada." I've tried to get him to say Elmo and he just repeats what he wants to...Dada :)

Both of the Miller boys got tools for Christmas!

Jake out in the snow...we had a white Christas (though it was really just leftover from the weekend before).

The boys building a snowman and throwing snowballs.

**Sorry these are so late in posting. Life hit full speed with the New Year and it's been crazy busy in our parts (lets just say that I fully realize the power that water has and some days I wish that I was still least then a landlord had to take care of the bill!)
