Holiday Cruise, Part 1

JJ went on his first cruise over the holidays!  We flew from Austin to Florida on Christmas Day with Aunt Jess and Uncle Eric.  On Dec. 26 we celebrated Christmas in Grandma and Grandpa's hotel room before heading to the Port of Miami to board the Norwegian Pearl and embark on our 7-day adventure!
It's been almost a MONTH since we got back home, so I guess it's about time to post some pictures.  Here we go with Part 1.

JJ's First Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning

JJ was pretty spoiled for his first Christmas and received lots of great gifts!  He opened a few on Christmas Eve, several more on Christmas, and the rest on the 26th.  Here are some photos of 12/24 and 12/25.

Fun ball popper from Aunt Jen, Uncle Dave and Fiona:

Beautiful rocking horse from Grandma Nee Nee and Grandpa Chubby:

Gift from Santa 
Excited to find out what's inside.
JJ's new pal Scout! (J's not sure how he feels about Scout at this point.)
JJ and Daddy check out JJ's new camera.
That's all for now.  We have lots of pictures from our holiday cruise to sort through, so look for some more posts in the coming weeks!
