Christmas Eve with the Livingstons

The big day finally arrived: Christmas Eve. As is our tradition, we spent the day with the Livingstons (that's Mama's side of the family). And our good friend Terry joined us, too. She's the one that took this great photo of our family.
The first present of the day was this awesome Cozy Coop. Jack and I are going to share it as it will stay at Mimi and Pop-Pop's house.
Here's Jack checking out our new car...
Then I took it for a spin...
Jack made sure to show me how all the buttons worked. Thanks, buddy!
While we were waiting for dinner, Jack and I played a bit of piano.

Here's a little video of our "concert." I think we are ready for some lessons, what do you think?
Then the present opening began. Our first gift was a neato Holiday Elmo. Jack and I both got one. He plays lots of songs and shakes.
Some more present opening. Cool, books!
Jack got this awesome Yo Gabba Gabba Key-tar. He let me try it out.
Here's Pop-Pop trying it out, too.
Wow, that is a LOT of presents! What a mess!
But everything we received was priceless. Here are some highlights: lots of puzzles from Uncle Jon, Aunt Jenn and Jack, lots of books and a cool Tag Junior from Mimi and Pop-Pop and a neat bag of presents from Great-Grammy and money, too! What a haul!
Here's a quick photo of our little family before getting ready for bed. Awww!
And no visit with Jack would be complete without some "cousin love."
Ouch, I bumped my head.
OK, had enough...
The night was finally over and after a quick bath and putting on my awesome Christmas jammies, I was ready to go home. One last hug from Great-Grammy...
And Mimi, Pop-Pop and Bobbee, too! Thanks, everyone, for all the great food, wonderful presents and lots and lots of love. We all had a great time! Gotta go home now and wait for Santa to come...

Oh man, Noah! You had a BIG party under Mimi and Pop-Pop's tree! I think your new car is going to be great fun out on Pop-Pop's patio! Aren't you a lucky boy to have so many people who love you so much! Jack likes to remind you too!
Love ~m

That looks like a great Christmas Eve! You sure ARE a lucky boy! I can't think of much else to say because Emily is sitting here demanding another chance to hear your concert with Jack. We have listened about 6 times already. Good thing you two don't charge!

What great photos! We had a wonderful time! Christmas through the eyes of Noah and Jack, our two darlings! What could be a better gift for the lucky grandparents we are?
Love you all,
Mimi
