Kirby and I couldn't wait to start celebrating the holidays with our boy this year! Even though it was his first, we wanted to start some traditions and be sure to make it special (of course he wouldn't know otherwise, but he'll be able to look back at pictures... and that'll say a lot, right?).
Here is a picture story of Kaden's first Christmas Eve-
lots of playing and relaxing with Mama and Dad
poor boy wasn't himself at all... at the time, we weren't sure exactly what was wrong, but we thought it could have been a tooth coming in (we were right... more on that later)
yet... still smiled through the pain :)
enjoying some water... or just the rubber top
Dad making a pizza- A King family tradition
our big boy helping to make cookies for Santa
quick family picture
finding out where Santa was before going to sleep
setting out the cookies he helped make and some milk for Santa
Mama and Dad peeked after Santa left.... only to find out that a certain baby must have been pretty good!
opening gifts on Christmas Day 5:30ish am- Round one
getting pretty tired... or maybe the clothes Santa brought him were too boring... who knows?!
Yay!!!... Santa and Richard the Elf ate the cookies!
a little play time before nap
after a nap, we started a second round of presents
Santa couldn't fit one of Kaden's gifts on his sleigh, so it's being delivered this week- Porsche Carrera GT ride-on car that's also remote control. The Hot Wheels car was a warm-up for the big one.
the rest of the afternoon, we played with the new gifts Santa brought
talking with Grandma Frani about how to set up her camera so she could Skype with him
tryin' out my new big boy highchair
remembering Grandpap with a lit candle
