Cathcart Family Christmas 2009

We got to start our Christmas celebrations early with the Cathcart family on Friday.  We always have such a great time because Steve and Kris do such a good job to make it so special every year with the beautiful decorations and awesome food.  It was also nice to have a little. . . or a lot of snow on the ground to make it really feel like Christmas.  On Friday night we had an excellent prime rib supper and had fun opening presents.  It was a lot of fun to watch Jaxson open all of his presents and get so excited about them.  Jaxson also got a special phone call from the one and only Santa Clause. His eyes were huge and he was jumping up and down with excitement after talking to him.  It was priceless.  On Saturday, we took Jaxson roller skating at the Gowrie skating rink.  He did a few loops around with Daddy and did get a little better each time.  I think his favorite part though was watching Brad and Santa roller skate while he sat on the sidelines.  Then that evening, Lisa, Laura, and Adam (her boyfriend) came over for supper.  Poor Karl had to stay home because he was sick.  Jaxson had a blast playing with Laura and Adam.  He had his snow boots on and was all set to go home with them.  On Sunday morning we stopped by the church to grab a bite to eat as Papa Steve was serving up a breakfast and then headed home to unpack and get ready for the week.  Brad started back to work today after being off for three weeks.  He is allowed to do half days this week but no patient care, so he’s getting caught up on his office work.  He went in from 9:30-1:30 today and it exhausted him.  It’s amazing the little amount of activity that it takes to make him tired and ready for a nap.

Anxiously waiting to get into his stocking.

Jaxson got Brady a Spiderman 4 wheeler to cruise around on this spring.  Brady’s very excited 🙂

He’s excited that he got both Buzz and Woody.

A great Christmas card picture.

We had to try out Jaxson’s new big boy sled.

The easier way to roller skate.

Getting the hang of it.

What the boys have been doing a lot of lately 😦
