Presents, Presents Everywhere!

Henry, Grant, and Eli with their presents from Mom and Dad.
The big boys got new baseball gloves and Eli got some cool transportation pop-beads {can't you tell Eli is super-thrilled about his Christmas presents}!The boys coming down the stairs with daddy on Christmas morning.Family photo in our Christmas pj's in front of the Christmas tree
{We have taken a picture like this every Christmas morning since Henry's 1st Christmas....I am going to have to make a collage with them one day!!}
The boys each got three gifts from Santa Claus on
Christmas morning{to represent the three gifts that baby Jesus got from the Wise Men}.
Henry and Grant got a Planet Heroes Space Station set to share
with a few of the heroes to go with it.
Henry also got a tee ball bat with a tee and a V-smile handheld game.
Grant got a soccer goal and a V-smile handheld game.
Can you tell we {I mean Santa} have to do a lot of the same gifts for the boys......it helps with the "HEY! that's might, not yours" fights a lot!!
Eli got a new really cute lion ride/push toy, a neat toy for his car seat (with a remote for me!), and some soft stacking rings that I absolutely LOVE!

Eli with two of his presents from Santa....a car seat toy and some soft stacking rings.

In addition to all of the stuff the we {and Santa} got the boys, they also got stuff from their grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, great-aunts and great-uncle.
Hence the title of this blog PRESENTS, PRESENTS EVERYWHERE!
We have already made one trip to Goodwill since Christmas with some stuff from the attic and awhile back I cleaned out the boys' toys and took a TON of stuff to my mom for her to give to some people at her church. I think we may have a few more trips to Goodwill in our future to make room for all the new things that boys got for Christmas this year.
We are very blessed and the boys are really excited about all their new things, but it is so hard to find a place for everything....and I wonder if we really need all the stuff....I think the best thing for us is to give away the things we don't need anymore and hope that someone who is in need will receive them and enjoy them as much as we did.
I hope everyone had a GREAT CHRISTMAS and enjoyed celebrating the season of Jesus' birth with their families and friends!

I love the PJ's too! We're beginning to get similar toys for the boys too! (..and they're 3 years apart in age!). I'm sick of the "That's mine!". So, now we grab a Sharpie pen and label. Geesh. Can't they just share and get along??? Boys!
