Christmas Morning

The boys had so much fun unwrapping the mound of presents under the tree on Christmas morning! I have to say, it's SO much more fun to celebrate the holiday with another child. The house was full of love and excitement and it was so much fun watching Jackson tear off all of the wrapping paper. Watching the excitement in both boys' eyes was amazing!

Waiting in Line

Some cute pics I snapped of Jackson while waiting in line for Santa. He's SO active now that it's impossible to kep him contained for long! His new favorite place to play is the playground at the mall and he loves climbing on all the toys and "talking" to the other kiddos. So cute!!

My Christmas Gift

Look at what my wonderful husband got me for Christmas! A beautiful new pound puppy! Well, we actually all picked her out but she's my little sweetie. We took donations down to the pound for Christmas and while we there took a quick trip through the kennels. When we walked by Daphne's (her new name) kennel Jackson instantly went up to her and she started licking him through the door. So sweet! Even Ryan instantly fell in love and long story short, we ended up bringing her home a few days later. She has quickly made herself at home and gets along great with our other dogs and cats. What a great gift!
