Christmas with Mammy and Uncle Clare

Monday was a very BUSY day for us-doctor's visit, school, playing outside-and then later on that night, Mammy and Uncle Clare came over to give Eli his Christmas present. Eli couldn't wait to see what was hiding in that big bag they brought over. He scrambled into Mammy's lap and started pulling out the paper before I even had the camera ready. 

They got him a new Mater pillow pet, a Lightning McQueen sponge, and a bottle of Cars bubble bath.

They also gave him his first bird watching book. Uncle Clare loves going outside to look for birds, so now Eli can take his book along and join him. Mammy told him that he'd need his binoculars to help see the birds, so Eli went to his room to get the ones that Aunt Lisa and Uncle Dave gave him from Allison's wedding. I think these two are going to have lots of fun together looking for birds!

Then Eli gave Mammy her present from us. We gave her some personalized Christmas address labels this year that I ordered from Expressionery. (Here's a heads-up...they're having their MADNESS sale right now and things are 60% off! I always order things for next year at this time while prices are so low. Just thought I'd pass that tip along!)

Eli LOVES Mammy and Uncle Clare, and I'm so thankful we got to spend part of our Christmas with them. I am very thankful for them and for so many others that love our little boy unconditionally! He is surrounded by so many people that love and care for him. We are truly blessed to have you guys in our lives!! Thank you for all our gifts! We love you!
