Maddox's First Christmas

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!  We sure did...a busy one!  We started our Christmas festivities on Wednesday night at my FIL and MIL's house for all the grandkids.  We had good company, good food and lots of presents!  Maddox got a Bright Starts Activity Station, sock monkey, race car steering wheel and some clothes.

We had Christmas at our house early Saturday morning so Maddox can open the gifts that Santa brought him.  I have to say this is the best Christmas Wade and I have ever had together.  It was so much fun seeing Maddox getting excited about wrapping paper, bows and tissue paper.  He couldn't have cared less about the gifts, he just wanted to eat the paper!  Santa brought him some books, sippy cup, burp cloths (really for mommy), rattles, Fisher Price Piano, stackable rings and some other little toys. 

After we cleaned up, we went to my parents so we could all open gifts.  I have a new nephew, Jackson, who was born on December 15, so we enjoyed getting to spend time with him, Jared and my sister, Casey.  Maddox wasn't so sure what to think of Jackson, but I think they will be best friends!

My parents spoiled Maddox!  He got so many gifts that I can even remember what all he got.  I know he got a Baby Einstein jumper, sock monkey, space saver high chair and lots of other toys.  We have to get him a bigger toy box just to hold the stuff his Mimi and Pappy got him!  Maddox is one blessed little boy!

We are so grateful to God for blessing us with Maddox.  He is such a joy in our lives!

2010 has been the best year for us yet as we celebrated the birth of our first child.  We can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for the House's!   Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!


  1. He is precious! My little boy just turned 1 last week. The first year just flies by to fast :(

  2. Christmas with kids brings a new Joy to Christmas. Maddox is precious and growing so big. How is Jackson and Casey? I still have their gift I need to drop it off by moms or call and meet her and see baby Jackson. I wish she had a blogspot, tell her she needs to! LOL
