Christmas #2

The weekend before Christmas we went to spend a few days with Monty's family in Montgomery. We left Friday afternoon at 4 and got to his parents' house at about 2:30 Saturday morning. I am so thankful that Aiden is an awesome traveler. He watched a couple movies once it got dark. At 10 we turned off the DVD player and told him it was time for bed. He went right to sleep and stayed that way until 1 when we stopped for gas outside Birmingham. At that point he didn't want to sleep, but rode quietly until we got to Montgomery. We finally got in bed around 3:30 and then he was up at 8 ready to go!

Saturday night we went to the zoo to see the lights. Aiden loved riding the train through the zoo looking at everything. After that we walked around and saw the light displays.We ended the night in the petting zoo.Sunday we went to Papaw and Memaw's house for lunch. We had a great time visiting and ate a wonderful lunch! Aiden enjoyed opening his presents. He got books, puzzles, and a Thomas train.Sunday night we opened presents with Monty's family. What a fun time we had! Aiden would open one present, play with it for a minute, and then want to open another one. He got some nice Alabama shirts from Aunt Crystal and lots of cool toys from Grandma and Grandpa. The hit toy was the ride on tractor complete with buttons, sounds, and a digging arm. He couldn't even wait until it was out of the box before trying it out!
What a fun time we had! Can't wait to see everybody again in May for Aiden's birthday. We are blessed to have such a wonderful family.
