Jack's 1st Christmas


Happy Birthday JESUS! Thank you for coming to the world as a little baby. We love You and love to celebrate your birthday! You are the greatest gift ever!

"Today in the town of David a Savior had been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 2:11

It was an extra special Christmas this year because we got to spend it with a child of our very own! It was so much fun! We loved getting the house all decorated and watch Jack enjoy all the lights and decorations (yum, I think he enjoyed eating those decorations more than looking at them, but anyway...)

Our house Christmas morning.
LOVE it - the decorated tree with presents all around, a fire in the fire place, new freshly made stocking for each of us (I had been wanting to make these for years), and a cute red wagon waiting for the little man!

We weren't sure how Jack would react in the morning, but he was actually excited to see some new toys! I'd say his favorite was this new farm set.
Opening his presents....

...and seeing how they all taste.

Tasting/Playing with is new stuffed animal - mini Java.

Back to the farm he went. He loved this farm! He would be trying to play with it then we would pass him another gift to open. He would get upset because he would just want to play with the farm, not open another gift.

Jack's 1st ride in his new red Radio Flyer wagon!

I think he likes it!

Opening his stocking

Our family of 3 on Christmas morning.

Java enjoyed her new toy - a new bone!

Barrett enjoyed his new toy too - a remote controlled helicopter!

Jack in his santa suit diaper. Ha!

More gifts.... that is one big pile of gifts for one little man.

Playtime with some new toys

And it wouldn't be Christmas without some candy making in the kitchen. Yum!

On Christmas we also went over to my parents house in the morning for our family gift exchange then went over again that evening for Chirstmas dinner and time with my grandparents and other extended family. Did I take any pictures there? Of course not! Oh my! But I will have those memories in my head as pictures (at least that is my plan right now :-) It was a great Christmas day!
