Before it gets too much past Christmas, I need to post some pictures of Brooks opening his Christmas gifts. I think the opening of the gifts was almost more fun for him than playing with the gifts he got! But I think that is pretty typical for his age! We had our little Christmas Friday night with just Blake, Brooks and I. I put the Christmas presents out Friday morning, and Brooks wanted to open them right away. I told him we had to wait for daddy to come home tonight. He kept asking, 'This?! This?!' all morning pointing at the gifts. I kept telling him we had to wait for daddy to come home tonight. When daddy came home for lunch, I told Brooks that "daddy was home!" just like usual, and Brooks got all excited and pointed at the gifts saying, 'this?! this?!' He didn't understand the 'tonight' part of daddy coming home! After Blake got off work, we went to Chances R to eat. We had a gift certificate for there that needed to be used, and we figured what better time to use it than Christmas! Brooks did really good at the restaurant (it's really hit or miss with him when we go out!) the food took a little while to come out, but luckily the waitress was nice enough to bring him a whole plate of cucumber slices, and that kept him very happy until his chicken fingers came! After we ate, we drove thru Starbucks for a couple of peppermint mochas for Blake and I, then home to open gifts. It really was a fun night as a family! Here are some pics of Brooks opening his presents.
