Caden was so much more involved this year! He didn't fully unwrap a lot of his presents (got tired of having to work at it so hard and sitting still), but he loved ripping off the bows (including gifts that weren't his own!) Since this little guy has a November birthday and got an insane amount of toys from his party, Casey and I opted to get him no toys and buy him practical things he needed. No lie, the kid had a toothbrush holder in his stocking. Our rationale was that at this age he just likes to unwrap the gifts/play with the boxes and this is probably the only year we can get away with getting him things like a mat for his bathtub and clothes. Plus, we knew his aunts/uncles and grandparents would get him some fun toys. Santa agreed Caden had been good this year and brought him a power tool set, so the little guy had something fun to unwrap on Christmas morning at home.
By the end of Christmas Day, our family of three was happy and full. Here are a few pictures to highlight the holiday season:
