"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas..."

Although Jason does get to come home early next year, he will miss Christmas this year, so we decided to have our "family Christmas" early!

My mom and I found some great deals at Hobby Lobby!
Jason opened his gifts first...this is the gift Dawson got him! It's a picture of Zoey in a frame that says "Daddy's Girl". And trust me, she is. She looks like him, acts like him, you name it.
Princess Zohan and her Sleeping Beauty DVD. I think Krystal is hoping she takes the hint.
"Oooh! A Pooh toy! I've been wanting one of these!"
This is the stellar wrapping job that Brandon did. Oh, yes. That would be a pillow case. 'Cause nothing says "I plan ahead" like wrapping a gift in a pillow case.
This is the typical scene at the Eaves-Fletcher Christmas. My dad videotaping, tons of wrapping paper and plates everywhere, with someone trying to take a picture in front of the tree.
Great-Grandpa shows Zoey the tree...
Mom and Dad pose with their gifts from Jason...
We had lasagna for our Christmas dinner after having family photos taken at Krista's studio...
...and the entire day was topped off with this. Jason's favorite strawberry cake. As Cousin Eddie would say, "That stuff is gooo-oood!"

Stay tuned for pictures from our family photo shoot!
