A Thankful Heart

I don't even know where to begin! Jake's first Christmas was wonderful. We spent so much time with both sides of our family, and Jake was loved on endlessly by all! Christmas is one of my favorite times of year and now...with Jake...its even better! Of course, he didn't really understand what was going on, but he loved seeing everyone and showing off! He was also a GREAT baby! I really thought he'd come unglued by the end of the day Christmas Eve! He'd been up since 8 am and had been held non-stop all day long! By 7:30 that night, I figured he'd be a cranky lil dude, but he was all smiles! I could tell he was super tired, but not cranky at all!

Our family COMPLETELY spoiled him this year. SO MANY GIFTS!! We're so thankful and grateful to have such wonderful family. I'm putting this post up on Christmas night, and we still have the Veazey Family Christmas at our house tomorrow. So, I'm posting the pics I have so far. More to come....

Greg's sister's family-The Pitts. (L-R) Morgan, Gart, Madison and Angie.
Daddy and Jake- I love this picture!

Jake with Pappaw Ferguson - Greg's grandpa
My Uncle Mike and sister-in-law, Tonya, on Christmas Eve at my mom and dad's house.
This is the rocking horse my parents gave Jake for Christmas. It was mine when I was a little girl and is currently "under construction." My parents are fixin' er up! I can not wait to Jake on this horse!!!
Okay, so he was technically on the horse, but not really "rocking."
Jake and I unwrapping his ga-zillion gifts at my parents house. He is wearing the hat my brother's family got him and is actually more into the tissue paper than anything else! Go figure!
Okay, this is Jake opening his Jack-n-the-box from my grandmother. I just know he is going to love this!

This is actually the day before Christmas Eve. Jake is wearing a little polyester number of Greg's when he was a little guy. He looked so cute in it!

I just thought this was funny! No- its not a picture of the Octo-mom's mantle...its the mantle at my mom's house. We have a stocking for everyone and their dog....literally!

Jake unwrapping his present from his cousin, Ashton. Ashton ran out of tape and decided to just use blue painter's tape. Jake thought it tasted nice!

Jake and Sarah. Sarah is my cousin on my mom's side. She's going to be a great babysitter!

My niece, Ashton, opening presents.

My grandmother with her new walker/buggy! She's stylin'!

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! Our family is certainly thankful for all we have and the best gift of all....Jesus Christ!
