Christmas was a lot more fun this year. Cameron is now old enough to understand what is going on. He has been really excited and it has shown. This little boy has so much energy! I put together a list of 25 activities to do with him too to keep him busy. I think he enjoyed it since everyday he would ask me what our new activity was. I enjoyed our little time together too. We would do it while Taryn was asleep so it would give us our little one on one time.
Cameron asked for a truck and a movie this year. So nice when they are young. It is a very small list :) He ended up getting a police truck from Grandad (gave us a gift card and we bought it) and a Mickey Mouse movie from Santa. Taryn got a dog and an outfit. We do three presents each and a couple of things in the stockings (what I want, what I need, and what I will wear). Very simple Christmas, but that is okay. We don't want to go over board anyways.
This Christmas, we wanted to bring in the real reason as well and not just Santa. I kept telling Cameron it is Jesus' birthday. He eventually got it :) I found a cute scripture advent chain on Pinterest and I decided to do that with him everyday. That was his scripture for the day. It helped me remember the real reason too. I didn't realize how much I needed it to. I think it is a keeper and we will do it every year.
We had Shad and his family over for Christmas dinner. This was my first time making a ham. So much easier than turkey lol. After dinner, I had put together some games to keep the kids from going crazy. I found some fun minute to win it games. I wish I would have taken some pictures, but it was a lot of fun. At least we had some family to get together with.
