Christmas in Dixie

 What's the difference between a Country Christmas and Christmas in Dixie? Well a Country Christmas was filled with lights, songs, characters, visitors and go, go go. Christmas in Dixie meant time at home, warm surroundings and snow, snow, snow!

We came home Christmas eve with Mimi in tow and one little fella who had more than his fill of the car seat for the day.

A little playtime with his Little People nativity set, then it was pj time!

He wasn't crazy about the hat that coordinated with his pjs or the camera, but I got a few pictures before Jay threw in the towel.

We awoke Christmas morning to some snow flurries and Jay got to see what Santa brought and open his stocking.

Jay "loved" every new toy he got this Christmas. 
Marking each new toy with drool, he welcomed the lion into his world. 

Santa left a lion and a Fisher-Price activity center that goes along with some other toys he received over the holidays. His stocking was full of another little lion lovey, sippy cups, a paci holder, a toothbrush and toothpaste, flash cards, stacking cups and some Gerber Puffs. Then it was time for another present from Mommy and Daddy then off to Dede and Papa's for lunch and presents.

 There are three very fortunate grandsons pictured here at Dede and Papa's can you find them?

After all of the gifts, meals, family and fun of the holidays we had one tuckered out little elf. Jolly as he may have been.

We had a wonderful first Christmas and are working hard to play with all of our toys and wear our new clothes! Thanks to everyone who made this "first" so wonderful for sweet Baby Jay. We are so lucky to have wonderful family and friends to enrich our lives and Jay's life. Looking back, I wish I could have taken a picture of every single person who held him and experienced the wonder of this first Christmas with us. We love that so many people love our son and love spending time with him!

A fire kept us warm all weekend as it snowed and snowed (but didn't stick) through the 27th.
