A very merry christmas

Well, we're a little late on showing some of these Christmas photos to everyone, but here we go!
On Christmas eve we had my family (Andy) over to our house for dinner and gifts. Grey was excited to see his cousin Evan. He so lovingly refers to him as "baby elvin" these days. Anyway here's a picture of grey and evan with grandma and grandpa.

I think aunty em was being silly, Grey thought it was hilarious!

These pictures were taken "post-gift opening" where apparently the boys stripped down to their onesies and started partying.

i just really love our new home and Christmas felt so great in it this year!

this totally wasn't from Christmas eve, but i just like photo.
Anyway, back to Christmas eve...After Grey was in bed we set up his big gift, a tent (or a house as he refers to it) Christmas morning he was able to see it and as we thought it was a big hit! in fact he ate his breakfast in it that morning. So now we currently have a tent permanently set up in our living room.

ah yes, holdin my boy wearing snowman pj's on Christmas morning, can't beat it.

Here's a family shot on i feel like we could have tried that one again...were like 50 feet away from the camera. Don;t worry, i got a tripod this Christmas so i wont have to rely on propping it on the arm of the sofa to do the job anymore.

Here's Christmas at the Neals! Christmas chaos at it's best!

Oh and here's Leigh with niece Kendall singing Karaoke. Let's just say we don't have the next American Idol in our family :) hahaha.

here's grey crawling out of his house when Leigh was finally done singing :)

Here's the cousins playing with their new gadgets. Grey found the play/pause button quickly and kept pushing it until Olivia got sick of him and left.

Might as well wrap up the day with a spin behind the go-kart on the tube! oh yeah!

I hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas and we wish all of you out there a happy and healthy new year!

love the Gibbs'

Merry Belated Christmas you adorable family!!! :) P.S. Jet has a tent too! It's not permanently set up in our office....along with a train table....and enough "little people" to start a new tiny country. lol.

Yay for a big house for Grey! I just thought that was the cutest thing when we visited. I have "played house" with Nate a couple times since, and he remembered and said "you (which in Nate language means I) play house with Grey and Mr. Andy." Looks like you guys had a Merry Christmas (and these fun snow pictures you keep posting along with Tim Allen's Michigan commercials have us reallllly contemplating moving there!) Hugs to you guys!

Oh yes...We lived with a giant Thomas tent and tunnel set up for weeks...Good stuff. Looks like you guys had a blast!

He does look like such a boy instead of a baby - I guess he should, he's almost two! Gorgeous photos and love the tent, that seems to be a hit with little boys. Merry Christmas!
