Big Papa and Umma leave this week for Arizona. Four months of no sleepovers might do us in. But we know they are excited for the change and we'll be visiting again in February.
Before they leave, we try to fit the holidays in and this year was no exception. Big Papa kept Alexander occupied with we poured cocktails and started dinner...you started dinner, didn't you Umma?

Eric does love his tequila!
Alexander decided he wanted to toast with us so we used it as an excuse to give him his cough syrup.

This year, Alexander was ALL about the presents. It didn't matter who recieved the present. It mattered that Alexander was the one who opened it.
Helping Big Papa
Helping Mama
And he opened his own.

To my family: Consider this your warning. Alexander is going to INSIST that he opens ALL presents on Christmas. Be prepared.
All this Christmas talk has made me start wondering what to buy Alexander this year. I finally figured it out!
Take a look at this picture and guess what I decided upon.

In the end, we were all very spoiled. It was a very Merry Christmas indeed!

Yes, it was a wonderful Christmas once again.

Alexander was on fire opening presents - so cute.

We will miss you all, but Arizona calls us once again. Can you say SUN.

Love, Umma
