We had a great Christmas! So great that updating our blog got put on the back burner! I am not sure how people that blog everyday get all of their stuff done. We had a great visit with family and got to see a few friends too. We were thankful that we caught onto Jacob getting sick early in the game. What else did we have to do the Friday before Christmas besides sit in a pediatrician's office for 2 hours (with everyone else in Atl!) and get diagnosed with pneumonia?? So glad it was early, did not get too bad and antibiotics worked quickly!
The picture above is Jacob opening one of the first gifts, when he was still savoring every minute. He quickly moved into "where is the next one?"

Tickle me Elmo cracked us all up! I think it is a rule that every toy given by a grandparent sings, claps, plays music or makes some other very entertaining noise:)

All Jacob asked Santa for was a "piece of gum in a little box." He was thrilled Christmas morning when he opened just that.

Here is Jacob's first piece of gum. Don't worry, he was very supervised!! When asked what he got for Christmas, this is what he tells about. We could stock a toy store but don't forget that piece of gum!
Cousin time! Jacob thinks he is somewhere between 11 and 13 years old. He told me, "Mom we are going to go watch You Tube."

I will update with a couple of other fun Christmas things later. With Jacob getting sick, we did pass on a couple of activities we had planned but had a great Christmas. We have a lot to be thankful for this year.....most of all, a time to reflect on the miracle of God's incredible gift to us, His Son.
