Christmas Morning 2012

Our family at one of the 7 AMAZING Christmas services at Compass:

Christmas Eve just before reading Twas the Night before Christmas:
(acting like a big 1 year old!)

a happy boy on Christmas morning:

What a sweet Christmas morning with our boy!  JR let us sleep in a little bit and we all enjoyed breakfast together.  He had just a few gifts to open (we knew lots of gifts were coming in ky!) and the furs even got some new squeaky toys :) 

The rest of the morning was spent cleaning & packing for our 1pm flight out to Louisville.  On route to the airport, we found out the flight had been canceled.  Knowing a phone call wouldn't help, we continued to the airport where we were directed onto a 3:30 flight... didn't board until after 4 and after the snow had started falling.  Yes, SNOW in TX on Christmas Day- so beautiful!!  But then of course they had no idea what to do with the snow and icy conditions.  After boarding the plane, we were stuck on the plane until 11pm!!  Thankfully we had enough milk & snacks for JR and Patrick was able to get off the plane once to get a pizza, but wow- what a crazy exhausted Christmas evening.  JR did incredible- his best flight ever!  He was so intrigued by all the lights and carts outside the plane, the dogs barking a few rows behind us, and a cute little boy sitting behind JR that played peekaboo.  But boy was this momma exhausted after trying to occupy him for so many hours on our laps and he only napped for a total of 1 1/2 hours.  My sweet mom had made a delicious Christmas dinner for us- for a 6pm dinner and then they waited up for us until we got in close to 2pm at the house!  It was a whirlwind of a Christmas day, but in the end JR was happy & we made it to Louisville.  Definitely a Christmas to remember :)
