Barrett's First Christmas Gift

We went to Dallas this weekend, and Barrett had his first of many Christmas celebrations. He had no clue what was going on, but he did seem to enjoy the chaos of all the "big boys" playing. Between Doug, my brother-in-law, my three twenty-something cousins, and my two little nephews there was a LOT of playing.

My aunt tends to give all the "kids" a toy every year, and this year the boys got marshmallow guns. There were marshmallows flying everywhere. In fact, I found quite a few in Barrett's diaper bag when I was at Target yesterday. I'm sure my aunt will be finding them for years!

Barrett did get his very first Christmas present. My aunt gave him Twas the Night Before Christmas. I'm really glad his first present was something we could keep, but I do still want the Huggies size 2 and Isomil Advance Formula! I put that on every list I could, but we didn't get any yet.

Barrett also got a camouflage hat. He wore it for a while then, but he will NOT wear it very often.

Later in the evening, the boys and I decided to teach T-man, my nephew who is seven, how to play poker. He's such a mathematical genius that we're hoping he'll support us all one day. AJ wanted to play too, but he really just wanted the chips.

Barrett seemed to like his first Christmas so far. I'll keep updating as the partying continues. Enjoy your holiday!
