Axel's First Christmas

Christmas Eve, we went to my parents' house like we always do. It was an evening of yummy food, the reading of the story of Jesus' birth and the opening of some gifts. This was Axel's first time seeing presents. He was a bit perplexed, but liked the crinkly paper. We had to fish bits of it from his mouth several times. Axel received a fun toy from Grandma and Grandpa. Now he has something colorful and noisy to play with whenever he goes to their house. My mom also made him the sweetest blanket and pillow. I just adore them. More to come on that at a later time.
Christmas morning, we woke up and looked at our tree with no gifts under it. Axel loved it just the same.
We then went to Ram's parents' house for Christmas Day. We ate a great breakfast and opened more gifts. The kids had a lot of fun. It gave us a little taste of what Chistmas will be like as we keep adding to the number of kids in the family.

It was quite a challenge to get a good photo without one of the babies being blurry. Cousins B and B just added tp the fun of the day.

What a fun day!

The same went for the family shot. I think it will be years before we have a shot where something isn't blurry.
We had such a great First Christmas with Axel. I am looking forward to many Christmases with my little family.
