Christmas Morning

OK, I think this will FINALLY wrap up my Christmas Festivities posts!! (and only a little more than a month after Christmas!).

We woke up Christmas morning and Dean was VERY excited to see that Santa had indeed come and left A LOT of loot!! It took a good while for him to notice anything besides the gigantic train table though...But after awhile we finally convinced him there were more (LOTS more) presents waiting under the tree:
Grandpa CR brought Dean a Coleman kid's backpack and sleeping bag that was a HUGE hit. Dean zipped himself up in that sleeping bag and didn't want to come out!
He napped in that sleeping bag and slept in it every night for I think an entire week!! Finally I had Joel roll it up and put it away one day when Dean was outside playing, hoping he wouldn't notice. We got lucky and he didn't seem to notice. So far, he hasn't asked for it yet. But it will come in handy when we go camping up at Poli Poli next month!!Dean also got a really cool watch from Grandma Jo and Grandpa CR that they bought when they were in Italy a few months ago. It's designed to help kids learn to tell time and for the most part it's working - Dean can pretty much tell you exactly what time it is when he's wearing that watch, which is really cool since Dean has had a fascination with clocks for awhile now! Here he is wearing his new watch:
And here he is checking Grandpa CR's blood pressure with his new Doctor's kit that Joel and I gave him:And another big hit was the Radio Controlled car Dean got from my Uncle Johnny. It took him a little while to figure out how to work the control, but he got it figured out for the most part and drove that thing all over the living room!!
As you can see, it was a pretty good Christmas for one spoiled little boy!!!
