First Christmas Celebration

Here is the first of many Christmas posts. After looking at my camera, I took 261 pictures over a couple of days. So get ready for some pictures. :)
We started our Christmas on Tuesday with a visit from Uncle Mike, Aunt Linda, Grannie & Grandpa. Uncle Mike & Aunt Linda drove in for the day from Dallas. Thanks for driving our direction and thanks for loving our boys.

Some how this picture is out of order, but too cute to delete. Gavin is excited about his new pet. Scroll down for more details.

Gage opening his first present. He was a little unsure of the process, but it did not take him long to catch on.

Gavin and a cool new game thanks to Uncle Mike & Aunt Linda.

Look! We have a new pet. I wonder what his name is?

Grayson checking out his new cars.
Everyone helping put together the new pet. Spike, our new pet dinosaur. He is very interactive and makes real sounds. He can pick up his own bones and walk across the room. He is very cool. Thank you Uncle Mike & Aunt Linda for getting the boys their very own pet. Thanks for picking one that did not require too much involvement from Mommy & Daddy except recharging batteries. :)

Gavin thinks Spike is pretty cool.

How many people does it take to put together a hot wheels race track? Apparently, several! They finally figured it out and the boys loved racing their cars on it.
We ended our day by attending an early Christmas Eve service at our church, Woodlands Church, Fellowship of The Woodlands campus. Pastor Kerry and his wife preached about being home for Christmas. Home with your family and home with our savior Jesus. God created us with a desire to know him and when you do, He provides you with peace and comfort in any circumstance. He gives us a "home" in our heart. When you are at home in your heart, you will have a peace that transcends all understanding. If you have never had peace in your heart, my prayer for you this Christmas is to seek Jesus. Seek and you shall find. If you truly seek, you will find more than you can ever imagine.
Many Blessings,
The Gerwick Family
