We had a WONDERFUL Christmas this year. Santa was very good to the boys this year (despite the fact that we tried to limit the presents). Tate's favorite presents were his train table, play food, costumes (batman and chef), puppets and games. Corey got some doggies, a firetruck, and some other toys. He didn't really get into the gifts too much, but he had fun with all the unwrapping. His favorite thing was a basketball game that Nathan got for the family. All in all, it was a great Christmas, or as Tate said, "the best Christmas ever!"

Tate's first preschool program was great. They sang several Christmas songs (which he practiced A LOT). His favorites were Up on the Housetop, Deck the Halls, Frosty the Snowman and a song we had never heard of that had a bunny and a snowman. After they sang some songs, the 3 yo class (which Tate is in) came down and changed into their nativity costumes for the last two songs (which the older kids sang). Tate was one of the wisemen and we had made his costume the day before. Tate LOVED being on stage and was singing and jumping around. He was also being a little naughty and the preschool director had to call him out by name before the show started. Tate sat next to his best friend, Conner, and they were messing around and choking each other and being crazy. It was hilarious!
My mom, sister and I took the boys to see the lights at the Riverwoods. It was so pretty and there were fires and a live band. Santa was there, but we didn't push it and go see him. Instead, Tate just wanted to stand far away and watch him. We also had fun going to the toy store...until Tate saw a pair of chattering teeth, got scared and we had to leave.
