This Christmas was so filled with love and joy and happiness. We are just in such a different place than we were last year and we were just so filled with hope and thankfulness for the blessings that God has given us. This was also our very last Christmas with Just Jonathan. We knew that everything was about to change for him and for us, and we wanted to make this Christmas super special. Jonathan will always be our first born son, my baby, my sweet baby love.
Christmas was wonderful. Mark and Jonathan did a great job decorating the outside of the house. I was a little OVERLY pregnant to be of any help, but Jonathan was a great helper to his Daddy. The two of them decided that we needed MORE stuff in our yard, so they made a trip to Lowe’s one day and came home with two huge inflatable’s for the front yard – Santa and Frosty. Jonathan loved them and they guarded our yard for the entire month.
Jonathan was very excited about Santa this year. He saw him three different times – church, preschool, and at the mall. Each time he asked Santa for a Spiderman toy that shoots webs and things, a Superman toy that flies around the room, and a radio to listen to music in his room. Well, someone must have known what he told Santa, because one of his friends got him a cool Spiderman toy that shoots webs. Also, Santa had a very hard time finding a Superman toy. So Santa decided to bring Jonathan a very cool Spiderman mask and gloves, a Toothless and Hiccup dragon, and a radio. Jonathan questioned a little why Santa had changed his list, but was very excited by his toys.
My parents and Mark’s parents were able to come spend Christmas day with us. We had a great time being together and opening a TON of presents as usual!! Jonathan had a blast with all of his new toys. Mark gave me a beautiful new pearl ring to go with my pearl necklace from when Jonathan was born and my pearl earrings from our wedding. It is beautiful and was such a nice treat. Plus, who wouldn’t want to see a little blue box from Sissy’s under the tree!
