Christmas as a Family!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We had a GREAT time celebrating on Christmas Eve at Nonnie and Papa's house with all the family!  It was our first BIG outing with the baby.  I think he did quite well!!

This is me with three of Jake's cousins.  Natalie is holding Jake and apparently is known as "the baby whisperer" in their house!  These three have 5 other siblings!  Lots of cousins to grow up with!
We have two new babies in the family this year!  This is Jake and his cousin Lily Anne who is 4 months old
We celebrated Christmas late in the morning, after a 6am bottle then a 10am bottle!  Jake got some good stuff!  Well, clothes and other small toys.  And, Santa thought it would be alright to start him early, and he did get a couple action figures, C3PO and R2-D2! 

And, for New Years we well, did nothing really.  We went to Walmart to get something to fix for dinner, which ended up being Jalapeno Poppers, BBQ Brisket, Mashed Potatoes, Guinness Beer, and a Cherry Pie!  WOO HOO!  We were in bed by 10:30 and I slept thru the "war zone" outside at midnight and woke up when Jake woke up hungry at 12:45.

Here's our Audirsch Rockin New Years Eve Party!

For New Years Day, we all had these great Old Navy Hoodies.  Jake's has these cute little ears on the hood!  LOVE IT!
Anyway, I will be sure to keep you updated on all things Jake!  He's such a blessing! 

Happy New Year!!!
