An Oklahoma Christmas

This weekend we had a great time in Broken Arrow celebrating Christmas with our Oklahoma family.  Ledger loved Boom-Ma's Christmas tree and especially loved all the presents underneath it.  From the moment we arrived, he wanted to climb-on or rip-open all of the gifts.  What is it about a Santa hat that just screams -- TAKE A PICTURE!!

On Saturday evening, Millie put together a family gathering -- hors d'oeuvres for the adults, and presents for the kids. :)  It was really fun to see all of the kids together.  Ledger worked hard to keep up with Peyton, Carson, and Hayden.  He really loved watching the big boys drive their remote controlled cars around the sun room -- he'd just SQUEAL as the car zoomed past him! :)  We also got some cute photo ops of Ledger and Lilah, who is about a month older than Ledger.

Saturday night, we had family game night with the Powells and Perkins'.  Santa surprised us with a new game... DUCK HUNT LIVE!  You have this little remote controlled duck that flies around the room and someone else has a gun and has to shoot the duck three times for it to fall from the sky.  We had so much fun and laughed and laughed.  In the following video, the duck goes rogue.

Sunday morning was our family Christmas morning.  I love the tradition of opening all of our gifts in our jammies.  Ledger enjoyed digging presents out of his stocking.  He got a kids drill with a construction hat and a kids shovel, both of which were a big hit with our little boy.  Overall, this weekend was great.  Too bad it had to end so soon!
