It’s Christmas Time

We got together with Jamie’s family today for Christmas.  The kids had alot of fun!  They made sure to show their true colors and run around like monkeys towards the end.  Jack even climbed some of the furniture as Jack does best, like a true monkey:-).  This behavior was brought out after this….

The kids had fun opening their presents.  The boys enjoyed their trucks most—as boys do, and they also got some adorable pajamas!  I love pajamas and was looking forward to seeing their new Christmas pj’s way more than they were:-).  I hope this is a yearly tradition—hint, hint!!



Hanna loved her American Girl pj’s, baking set and cat blanket Patty made for her with cats all over it.  Aunt Jennifer gave her some adorable fuzzy slippers.  Hanna had to go put these on after opening them, and of course I got a picture.


We got some good family pictures too.  Here is me and Jack.

I really like this one of Hanna.  She looks so pretty and so happy.


Here is one of our family minus Jesse.  I wish he was in this picture.  He was napping and we forget to get another one after he woke up.


We all had a really good time visiting together, laughing and playing.  Family is what is most important and it’s times like these that remind me to be so thankful for each member of our family, and how much they all truly mean to me.  My heart is full of gratitude and love.


  1. So nice that you spend time at Christmas with family. I miss family being around at Christma.

    We do our best just the 3 of us though.

    Great pictures, Selena has a blanket like Hanah's but hers is all pink.

  4. Looks like so much fun - I absolutely love Christmas pictures! Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

  5. We had such a good time yesterday. I do hope to keep this a tradition. It is so much fun seeing all the kids open their presents and next Jesse will be in the middle of it!

  10. I love the pictures - it's so awesome that you have your families nearby. I miss ours during this time of the year.

  11. We are starting a Christmas pj tradition this year too!! I want them all in cute brand new pjs for Christmas morning pictures! lol I have a small boy pjs addiction anyway so I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner.

    Great pics!! Beautiful family!!

    Merry Christmas!!

  12. It looks like a great time, I love that kitty blanket. We've never done the whole pajama thing, but a lot of bloggers seem to. Maybe we'll have to start that one up too.
