Christmas Day Part 2

So after the morning excitement we began the rest of our day. Colton was running around the house singing "SUPERMAN! SUPERMAN!" Jody and I were tired and Hayden was right out as you can see below.
After a nice nap, he went over to hang out with Uncle Christopher (now known as the baby whisperer). It seemed all night long Uncle Christopher traded between Hayden and his cousin Levi, and every time one of hem landed in his arms, they immediately relaxed and fell asleep. Once they were passed off to somebody, they woke up and were restless.

Later in the evening came a family gift exchange where Colton got even more presents... Like he needed anymore. Below he is ripping into a gift given to him by Uncle Matthew. Notice how Superman is in tow. They were inseparable the whole night, and the following day.

And what was the gift? More Superheros! Exactly what he would want. Uncle Matthew hit the nail on the head.

After the gift exchange came the wonderful Christmas dinner, put on by all of the wonderful women of the Gibson family. This year was a little different because we were having a Turducken, my first time ever. Its a Turkey, duck, and chicken all in one and stuffed. it was quite a different experience, but tasty.
The rest of the night was spent sort of relaxing and watching the children run around after each other. By the end of the night everyone had to drag themselves out to head home. I guess that's how you can gauge the night a big success. This is a big reason why I love Christmas. I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday as well. Merry Christmas all!

Merry Christmas Everyone! Today will be full of blog posts about our Christmas day. It started out with us waking up around 9:00 am, and Cole being very excited.

Until next post.

Merry Christmas Eve All!

My favorite holiday is almost here! There truly is no greater holiday ever than Christmas. A time to spend with family, friends, and loved ones. A time to focus on the greatest gift given to mankind in our Savior Jesus Christ. A time where we can emulate his life by serving those around us, sharing in a spirit of peace and brotherhood.
I love the everything associated with Christmas. The traditions, the Christmas music, the feasting, the family, the joy of watching children excitedly rip open their gifts to see what is inside. Christmas trees, stockings, snow, World Juniors Hockey (maybe a select crowd on that one).
This year our family is spending Christmas out in Ontario with my wife's family. Colton and Hayden will get to be around their little cousins, and we will be able to experience Turducken for the first time. It promises to be an eventful day. I plan on taking a few highlight pictures and sharing it with you all tomorrow as it happens.
I hope all of you, my friends; are enjoying your Christmas holiday. Please stay safe. Should you feel so inclined, please go a head and list off to me some of your family traditions, or things you love about Christmas. I like hearing how others celebrate the holidays. Merry Christmas!
