Asher's First Christmas!

Well the votes are in.......yes Asher is the most spoiled little boy in the whole wide world! He made out like a bandit for Christmas and being the best baby, Santa brought him tons of stuff. Our two day extravaganza started off at the in-laws house for Christmas Eve brunch. Being the adult child that Jd is, he insisted his mom let us three open one gift each like he got to when he was a little boy. Asher got a huge stuffed animal duck, Jd got some yummy coffee, and my fabulous hubby gave me a new {and much larger} memory card for my camera! Yay that was the perfect first gift to start off our Christmas. We hung out with them for a few hours and then headed over to my grandparents house for Christmas Eve dinner. We stuffed ourselves and were then ready for the craziness to begin. We are Swedish/Norwegian and my mom's side has always opened half of their presents on Xmas Eve and half on xmas day. Being the awesome traditionalists that we are {and greedy little bastards} we dug right in and opened gift after gift. People don't actually believe me when I say it's an entire event at our house for Christmas, but it truly is! We eat at 5:30 and don't get done till around 9. And by getting done I mean just finishing opening the gazillion of presents. Insert gasp here.

Next is Christmas Morning. We woke up to our beautiful baby boy sleeping in and not waking up once at night! We wore him out the night before. Then the hubs, Asher, and I opened our stockings. Santa brought Asher bubbles, a soft baseball, new socks, and lots of cars! We didn't have to change seeing as how we wore our Xmas pj's and headed right over my parents house. We noshed on my dad's amazing Christmas breakfast that he whips up every year and started opening more presents! We got tons of amazing stuff but the best gifts of all included the TW STEEL watch I got for JD, the leather jacket my parents got me, and my to die for Christian Louboutins from my perfect man! I love love love him! Asher also scored with a cozy tikes truck from santa. After packing up boxes of gifts, we drove over to JD's parents house. We opened more presents and then ate a yummy Christmas dinner. I feel like it's all a blur. So many gifts, so much amazing family time, and so many calories headed straight for my thighs! After dinner we celebrated with some champagne and the Bears game! We are so lucky to have such amazing families and the fact that we are able to spend the holidays with all of them! Thank you all and we are so happy to spend Asher's first christmas ever with the people we love most!!!
