Christmas at Thanksgiving 2010

We started a tradition with the Wright side of the family - exchanging Christmas gifts at Thanksgiving - three years ago. Looking back over the last three years, it's made the month leading up to Christmas so nice because we don't have to spend any time Christmas shopping...that part is done! We can rest and relax, looking forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, with family and friends over the Christmas holidays!

This passed weekend, we were thankful to share time, great conversation, good food and life with family! It was a fun several days!!! Rhys got to open his Christmas present from Papa & Grandmom...
Papa & Grandmom know this child very well! :) Rhys is into anything with wheels, but especially TRACTORS!!! He couldn't wait to hop on for a ride! PJ's and all! :)
Finally, I coerced him into letting me dress him! :) Below, he's dancing to music while ridin' his tractor. :) Such a sweet boy!
I am thankful for our Lord's provision...for so much WONDERFUL time with our families, for good memories of years passed, for added memories from this year :) (anyone involved in our Thanksgiving has to be smiling), for great food and so much more! What a beautiful spread of food we enjoyed! "Thank You, Lord!!"
We squeezed in some Joker, of course! :)
Aunt Tami surprised Rhys with blocks...
Aunt Kristie surprised Rhys with another fun tractor {thankfully we found the MUTE :) button on it last night}!!
Thank you, Aunt Kristie & Uncle Todd!! :)
All my men, relaxing together...
Papa helped feed Rhys cereal...
Grandmom LOVED on her littlest man. :)
Grandmom, her sister Sue and Caleb...
Caleb and his very own lovie from Papa & Grandmom...
And Rhys, Ritzin' it up :) as our little 'box head'...kids'll do the darndest things in the midst of excitement! :) I'm glad we caught this sweet moment between Papa & Rhys...look at those sweet smiles. They evidently love each other!
