Huntsman Family Christmas Party

We went to the Annual Huntsman Family Christmas party last night, and we all had a blast!

We were all visiting and catching up, and all the kids were playing, except for one. I couldn't see Bo, so I started looking for him, and this is where I found him...

Yep. That's a dog bed, in the corner! I guess Bo was still a little sleepy, and just wanted some "Bo" time. Did I mention what a funny boy this kid is?

I figured, If the kid wants to sleep, I'm not going to stop him! So I handed him his blanket! He laid there for a really long time! But he was happy as a clam!

This is all the kids sitting in a circle getting ready for the White Elephant gifts. Jaxson told Kaeline that she needed to give all the kids numbers. He was number 4 'cause he's 4. He told her he knew this because he's in preschool!

Cody was just trying to figure out what they were going to do!

He was so excited when he got to pick out a present! Usually, when we play our white elephant game, you can steel something if you like, but we decided letting the kids steel from each other wasn't such a good idea! Who wants a bunch of crying kids?!

Cody was thrilled with his Gumball machine! Yeah. Me too!

He and Bo would eat a piece of gum, and as soon as it ran out of flavor, they would come over to me and spit it out in my hand, and then go back for another one! Yummy!

I know, we have got to get rid of that dang binky, but really, it makes for such a happy kid!

And finally, the moment we were all waiting for... The Big Guy himself!
When Santa came in, Cody was torn between excitement, and terror!

Here's a little smile, but still unsure...

Of course Bo had no problem introducing himself!!!

He was loving this Jolly Old Soul!

Cody was called up to Santa's lap very first, but there was just no way that was happening, so we let Jaxson go first. Cody watched as Jaxson sat on Santa's lap, but he wasn't totally sold on the idea until Jaxson got his present...

Then Cody was ALL OVER IT! He ran up and sat right on his lap.

He gave a little smile, but really, he just wanted that present.

He posed for a picture, still waiting for that present...

All that talking made him a little nervous! He thought he'd been tricked, but FINALLY...

He got his present!


This is one happy little kid!!

Jaxson and Cody with their Dino's. That was one smart Santa!

Bo had no trouble sitting on Santa's lap. In fact, he was just interested in a toy plane he was playing with.

But as soon as that Santa pulled out his present. It caught Bo's attention!

But still more talking!! :)

Santa told him what a good boy he was, and a few things he needed to work on (like controlling his temper!) and then he sent him on his way!

What is it?!

More Dinosaurs!!

Cody isn't all the way sold on the idea that Santa gives presents to EVERYONE. He thinks they should all be for him!
Bo was so excited to play with his toys!

Zach giving Santa a Little Love!

Dad and Bo with his mini Dino's

Finally, we tried to get a picture with all the kids standing next to Santa. These are a few Attempts!

Needless to say, we never got that shot!
Thank you for the fun Christmas party! It was a Blast!!

I Spy...

I was trying to put up my Christmas decorations at the beginning of the season, (am I a little behind on posting?) and my boys thought all the decorations and things were hilarious, but every time I turned around this is where Bo would be...

Can you see him?

This is his new favorite spot! Especially with the tree decorated and all lit up! He loves this corner under the tree! Such a funny boy!

Another Freaking Dog!!

I guess having a bajillion hounds is not enough for our family, we had to have a "Bird" dog.

Cody will tell you this is "his poacher!" and he has to be able to do everything with Cody! Including taking a tub! I am not a dog lover, but how can you argue with this?!
