Jack's First Christmas

We all had a wonderful holiday being with so much of our family!  The only person missing was Numna, but she was right where she needed to be - in Houston meeting her new great-granddaughter (she now has 4 greats!)!  Our little family is so blessed that we have so many people who love our kids and want to spend time with us!  We broke in our new house by having everyone over for Christmas Eve and Christmas day.  Jack was adorable in his Christmas jammies that matched his big brothers (they also matched Owen and Mason's 1st Christmas pjs too)!  Owen and Mason really enjoyed showing Jack all of the things Santa and the rest of the family gave him. 

Here's how Jack spent his first Christmas:

Snoozing with Great-Great Aunt Bee.

Christmas Eve Dinner: lasagna made by my hubby. It sure was tasty!  Then we took a group picture...but the silly faces version was more fun to post! 

Jack and Great Grandma Mary having a talk.

Watching a Disney Christmas sing-along.
