The Christmas Mitchell Almost Missed!

I forgot this one the other that we live so close to my parents we were able to drive over for Christmas dinner and gifts after we had our own christmas morning at our house. Nice right? We had a very nice time but just around dinner time we lost one! Mitchie informed us that he was going to go lay down...that is him under that blanket.
I did not think it was going to last long. I was sure that this little guy that we can not keep still for long would would be out from under that blanket and off that couch in no time. I was wrong!!!
He stayed there and stayed there and stayed there! I checked him out and sure enough he was out cold! We waited a little while thinking he would wake up but he slept for quite awhile. That did not stop the rest of us. There was much merry making and present opening that went on around him. He did eventually get to open his presents...kind of in a grinchy mood about it because he was tired and under the weather, but he opened them all the same.
This is him part way through the first gift. He tore a corner of paper off and then decided he needed to lay back down. Too much effort!

Yay for living so close to family. You forgot to mention that that's your sassy mom haning out in the photo. :)

Poor Mitchie. Was it just a cold? There was flu floating around here over Christmas. Hopefully it wasn't that bad.

Leslie, I love reading your blog. It is like settling in with a great book, a cozy blanket, and a warm cup of hot cocoa!
