Merry Christmas!

It was Kingston's second Christmas! Well, it seemed like his first since he was 5 days old last Christmas and looked like this:

Of course he is still too young to really understand the concept, but our family sure had a fun time this year! I think the pictures will explain.

Kingston was tuckered out on Christmas Eve. He crawled over to Uncle Mark and told him he was ready for bed.

On Christmas morning I tried to get a cute shot of him as I went in to get him out of his crib. He was a bit camera shy but the bed head was too good to pass up!

We took a minute to do a self-portrait while we were waiting for Nigel to brush his teeth and get ready to see what Santa brought.

Santa really knows what a little boy likes! He brought this really cool wooden block full of fun (lots of assembly required the night before!). It was a big hit.

I think I could eat this little boy up. I mean, is this a cute kid or what?

I always do stockings for Nigel and Mark and generally the loot comes from the Dollar Tree. This year was no different. One year I found really nasty looking teeth and we all took a picture and emailed it to Mom as our family portrait. It was classic! This year I found "gold" chain necklaces and grills. They were a big hit. I knitted Uncle Mark a hat for Christmas so this was the total package. Yeah, yo! He is throwing up his gang sign, "West 3rd" (the main street we live off of).

Nigel is big pimpin, too, but for some reason his bed head is not as cute as Kingston's was!

After we enjoyed our time at home, we went over to Nana and Grandpa's for Christmas with the Kings. We got some good stuff! They always over do and this year was no different. Kingston got a bike helmet and seat so look for pictures of the Haynes family on bicycles some time soon! I didn't take any pictures over there since I was too busy enjoying my presents. Oops.
Nigel and Mark went surfing this afternoon while Kingston and I spent time with Nana, Granpa and Great Grandmama. When we got home, Kingston had dinner and then a cookie made by Pappy's (Nigel's dad) friend, Brandi. Thanks Ms. Brandi! Kingston loved his cookies!

After a very busy day, Kingston fell right asleep. Now I have the task of figuring out where to put all of the new stuff we got today!
We had a very Merry Christmas and we hope you did, too!
