I am working on taking down all of the Christmas decorations around the house so I figured I would update the blog as well. I need to take down the Christmas decor on it as well! It was a wonderful Christmas. So much fun and so much joy. But I am sort of glad to get back to "normal" life! I thought I would put up some pictures of all the Christmas decor for the year and my cool cookies that I made. Just so we would have a record of them. I promised Matt I would not buy any more Christmas stuff (at least for several years) and so far I have held to my promise. We will see how long it lasts.

It has been a busy few days! We are all very tired at this point. Christmas was so much fun with Ben this year but it is nice to get back into a routine. Poor little guy got a little overwhelmed by it all. We had a total of 5 Christmas celebrations with family (not counting all the friends we saw and hung out with). Ben didn't get to bed before 10 any night for the past week so he is a little worn out.
Ben totally buried in presents, wrapping, and bows!
We enjoyed some nice time going to the movies on Friday and seeing old friends. Then on Saturday we got up and headed down to LaFayette and Auburn to see my grandmothers and extended family. It was great to get to see everyone and spend time hanging out!
My grandmother got Ben a kitchen set. He loves it!!! He is going to make a good husband one day!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season! We are looking forward to 2009 and all it is going to bring!

Check out all the presents!
I love our stockings at my parent's house! They are so pretty!
Ben got into it all so much more than we imagined he would.
So the E initial flag was the gift of the year. We all got it for each other without knowing it. Good thing we all have the same initial.

4 generations of Eckleys! I love that Ben has gotten to know so many of his great-grandparents!
The boy loves trains! He has figured out how to work the remote and everything!
Checking out the new toys with Hatcher!
