Christmas Celebrations, part 3

Our last Christmas celebration was in Katy, to visit the Dotsons.

We arrived Friday, and after lunch at the club we headed home to have a relaxed afternoon.  Stephen and I met up with some of his high school friends Friday night, and the rest of the time was spent with family.  

Knox loved getting as close as possible to the tree.  He even tried to put his dump truck in it.  Thankfully he didn't break any ornaments.

Mimi got Knox some Christmas pj's that he wore Christmas Eve.  He looked so cute!  They also spoiled him and let him open a gift on Christmas eve.  He got a sit n' spin...remember those?  He's a little afraid of it right now, but I know he'll love it once he's older.

Christmas morning Stephen and I got Knox up and we headed downstairs to see his reaction.  I love how excited he was to see all of us, and his presents.  So sweet!

He was spoiled rotten.  Books, trucks, cars, racetracks, clothes, puzzles, and his big present:  a slide.  He has way more than he knows what to do with.

Him going "ooohhhh."

Unfortunately, it was raining all weekend.  Papa brought the fun inside, though.  They had wagon rides and bike rides in the house.  Knox loved it, contrary to his expression.

He watched plenty of movies in bed with Mimi and Papa...he also was naughty and jumped on their bed :)

While we were there, we were able to attend a little Christmas party with some of the Dotson's friends and golfing buddies.  It was nice to get dressed up since we spent most of the weekend in comfy clothes.

The hosts had their grand-daughter Blakely  in town from NYC.  She's almost 2.5, and loved "helping" Knox and playing with him.  They snuck off at one point and had a dance party.  I was able to snap a few pictures while they were shaking it...and falling from spinning too much.

We had a great time.  Now we are having the "post-holiday blues."  

Tomorrow I turn the big 3-0.  Time is moving too quickly!
