A Very Thomas Christmas

We had a very nice Christmas at our house this year. Our first celebration was at Jim's sister, Sharon's house with all of that side of the family on Christmas Eve. We had lunch together and then opened gifts. Drew got lots of fun things - a Doodle Pro, a Craftsman tool bench, some Thomas trains, and a Thomas movie.
On Christmas Day, Jim's mom came to our house for lunch and another gift exchange. Drew got a bunch more Thomas stuff - including Thomas underwear,
a Cranky the Crane,
and a bunch of trains and tracks. He was so excited!
My parents, sister, brother, and sister-in-law came the night of the 26th, and we had a third gift exchange that evening. My sister, Nora, gave Drew a Thomas pillow that he has been asking for for months (every time we go to Target).
Jim and I gave Drew a roundhouse to store some of his trains and to go with his tracks.
Drew also received another train, a Thomas movie, and a Thomas sticker book from my brother, Mark, and my sister-in-law, Katie, that night. This year's gifts centered around Thomas - Drew's main obsession! He did lots of other non-Thomas things too, but Thomas is his true love right now.
Drew was so spoiled this year, and he really loved opening his gifts. He liked passing out gifts to others, but a lot of the time, he thought that he should get to open those gifts too! We had a very good Christmas this year, and it was fun to get to spend time with so many people that we love. My family was here for four days, and it was great to have them here.
