Christmas morning we normally have all the family over for brunch and rush to open our own gifts before everyone gets here. This year, with me and AJ having bronchitis and some other family issues, we postponed brunch until the day after Christmas. So AJ had plenty of time to tear into all his gifts. This was the first year he has gotten into opening gifts. He went right for the biggest one first.

Trey got him this viewmaster. It brought back so many memories. I wish I could find my old one. AJ got pictures of dinosaurs and his favorite - SpongeBob.

He really didn't know what the stocking was so I had to show him that were actually gifts inside it and then he was digging to the bottom to make sure he got everything.

One of his favorite stocking items, candy topped with a toy!!

We gave AJ this bike. Its stationery and plugs into the TV. Not only is it good for exercise, but its educational as well. As he peddles, it drives down the road making him find things like colors and shapes. Right now though, he'll only peddle backwards. We're working on the forward thing.

Probably his favorite toy of the year - a wheel barrel. If you know AJ, you know how he loves to push anything on wheels. He loads and unloads toys ALL day long. His Mammy (his great-granmother) gave him this for Christmas. We have plans to put him to work with it this spring. :)
