Favorite Christmas Gifts

This year for Christmas, Noah got a ton of toys, and Chris and I got some pretty cool gifts as well.  The days following Christmas, it was pretty obvious what Noah's favorite gifts were.  While he's been playing with all his toys, there are a few that he gravitates towards the most.  

Noah's big gifts this year were the kitchen, Pottery Barn Kids chair, and the Radio Flyer Wagon.  I'm sure he will enjoy them all, but so far he's had a blast playing with the kitchen, shopping cart, and all the kitchen accessories.  The other two were just some random little gifts we got him.  As soon as he opened the glockenspiel (xylophone) he held onto that mallet and had fun playing music.  We didn't get to use the Elefun until the next day (it requires D batteries), but once we did, he kept hitting the button to get those balls popping.  It definitely requires us to play with him since he hasn't figured out how to put the balls back in, but we don't mind.

Chris got me these Ugg slippers.  There's a funny story about these slippers.  I sent my mom the link in a text saying I liked them, but didn't specify which color.  She then sent it on to Chris as a gift idea, and since my favorite color has always been purple, she told him that's the color I'd want.  He ordered them, and got sent 2 pairs by accident.  When I opened them Christmas morning, I told him it was the gray that I actually wanted.  So he returned the one pair and got me the gray instead.  So now I have two pairs lol.  I'm also super excited about the gift card Chris got me for a massage... I can't wait to go!

My parents' surprised Chris and I (as well as my brothers) with Apple TV.  We weren't expecting it at all and I'm so excited to set it up and start using it.

While I got this flash a few month ago, I used some of the money my parents gave me to get it and to take an external flash class.  It really came in handy during Christmas since a lot of the activities I wanted to photograph were inside and at night (when relying on natural light is a serious problem).

In addition to these, Chris said his favorite gift was the Rock of Ages tickets I got him.  I got him "A Year of Dates" (post to come soon) and this was one of the dates.  He saw an envelope come in from the community theater and was so nosy curious about what it was for, so I let him open that month's envelope a little early.

^^^ Chris' reaction was priceless!

As you can tell, we were all spoiled this Christmas.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve!  See you in 2014!

  1. I'm visiting from Daffodil's. It sure looks like you had a wonderful Christmas (with your purple slippers and all). Your little boy Noah is adorable; it definitely looks like he's enjoying all of his very special presents. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
