Christmas Time!


Christmas this year was--dare I say it?--pretty close to perfection. Why wouldn't it be? We had our sweet baby that we have spent the past 3 Christmases longing for in our arms! It was so much fun to spend the holidays with a baby around. Our little monkey is quite the social butterfly.

We started the week off with dinner and presents at Jordan's parents' house. They were heading to TN for Christmas, so we wanted to make sure they got to see Hampton before they left town. Wednesday, we headed down to south GA to see my grandparents and uncle. We (dad, mom, my brother & sister, Hampton, Jordan and myself) all piled into my dad's Yukon and hit the road. It was crowded, but we had a good time. We're quite the group!! Thursday we had our Christmas Eve service at church. Jordan and I looked at each other before going in and said no sharing the baby tonight. This is our time to celebrate the gift of Jesus and the gift of our handsome son. And no one fought us on that. He snuggled right into his daddy's chest and slept the whole time. We decided to haul all the gifts over to mom and dad's that night so that we could wake up there on Christmas morning. It was great! Boy oh boy did Hampton get some goodies! I can't wait for him to actually care about his new toys! We got to visit with my other grandparents that afternoon and my uncles and 2 cousins stopped by yesterday.

And today, we rest. The cleaning and putting away of stuff can wait.
