The First Christmas of 2014

It's about time I get around to blogging about our Christmas celebrations. We had THREE different Christmases this year, so I'm going to try to bust these out and move on with our lives. Part one of this Christmas trilogy begins early Christmas morning. Are you ready for this epic three part adventure? It's so much more exciting than the Hunger Games.
I woke up earlier than the rest of my house on Christmas morning, so I snuck out to the living room to see what Santa had brought and take some pictures while it was still dark outside. Once everyone was awake, the festivities began. We opened presents and ate cinnamon rolls and played with cars and trains. Those were the only presents Silas was interested in, and he left four presents and his stocking unopen under the tree, because who needs or wants anything besides cars and trains. Our friend, Paulo spent the day with us, in case you are wondering who the strange man is in some of these pictures.
The second half of our day was spent at my grandma's house. There's tons of people, tons of food, tons of games, and tons of pictures. So, I have tried to condense this portion of images into multiple collages to make it a little easier on the eyes.
So, Trevor has this obsession with Silas, and it's kind of my favorite thing ever. The kid carries around a picture of Silas when he's not with him and stares longingly at it. I can't handle it! Silas has some pretty strong affections for his cousin too. I'm just not quite sure they are on the same level. See above pictures.

Afternoon football...
This entertained these two fooorrrever...
Obligatory family pic....
And that concludes my Grandma's house.

Buuuuuut..........we aren't quite done. Remember how Silas still had presents to open. Well, that happened like 2 weeks later, so here's that...
Belle left a present in her stocking for Silas. I kind of love that she does that, because it helps keep her memory alive for Silas :) She brought Silas an "I Love My Beagle" shirt this year.
And it's true...he does love her. ^^ He gives her hugs all the time. He loves both his dogs. Belle and Brontie are smothered with love from this kid. Now that concludes part one. Stick with me people. I promise Christmas will be over soon.
