Here we go...

Oh my word!  I'm Jennifer, remember me?!?  It's sorta ridiculous that it has been 6 months since I posted last.  I'm basically almost closer to Christmas 2012 than Christmas 2011.  It's sad, really.  I've debated just giving up on this blog but I'm going to give it another try.  It's daunting knowing that I have so much to catch up my 2 readers on- ha!  :)  And the fact that Blogger has TOTALLY changed does not help!

OK, Christmas.  I think I'm going to make this a big post and throw some of the highlights of the month.  

We went with some of our favorite friends on the Santa train again.  This year, we didn't do the Skunk Train but did the Napa Valley Wine Train and loved it way better.  Maybe because we had some wine to drink :)

We celebrated with the McWilliams family before we headed to Dallas.

We took a limo to the airport, major fun with the boys :)

Met Santa!

Christmas Eve

 Waited for Santa

Our matching flip flops from Luke with a picture he had taken.  CUTE :)

Went and visited a friend of my dad's who gave us the 'royal tour' of his fire station, including a trip around the block and a ride in the bucket!!!

Habecker/McWilliams/Edmonson family (not sure why this picture showed up here...)

Pierce on a Pierce firetruck :)

We did about a thousand other things but I think I'll quit while I'm ahead :)  I had a bittersweet Christmas season (more on the bitter part later) but I'm so blessed to have been in Dallas with my family.  Christmas is getting more and more fun with Jake and Pierce.  I love experiencing it all through their eyes.  I'm thankful for the gift of Jesus and for the real reason we celebrate December.

(Whew, I did it!  Let's see if I can keep it up- ha!)
