I sure wish I could tell you that we painted the holiday town red this year, but the truth is...we were too busy snuggling our new baby, avoiding germs, and building Lego tables.
Sure-- we saw lights... hit up some movies, partied with friends, and had plenty of great ol' fashioned family time.
I just didn't do a great job documenting most of it.
The boys were just as excited as ever about Christmas this year...and it's a fun season to be in at the Jones home.
I was so excited to get to help in Tucker's class for his Christmas party. I hadn't had the chance yet to help in a party for him, with the birthing and all.
Seeing him in preschool action is something to behold.
It just so happened, that he was also the leader this day... extra entertainment.
It is especially fun to go to a party with a kid that will actually EAT the treats!
And...to go to a party with Annie and Sam in tow!
Wrote this scenario in my dreams.
Later that day, we headed to the mall for the Bear Hollow Christmas sing.
Just the before-the-show picts of Tuck should give you a good idea,,,
I took about 20 solid minutes of video of this mug, because he was just too good for still shots.
Animated, engaged, and hilarious.
That's my Tucker.
And, lucky us...he and Sam were stacked right by each other.
My sweet little dimpled Tucker.
Getting so big,
He and Grandma Jackie have quite the connection.
He's a pint sized piece of work. Such a tiny little character.
He had an ample amount of support.
We were all so proud of our boy!
A few days later, Jack had his turn to shine in the Sego Lily Christmas Sing.
He got to perform one number, "We Will Jingle"
It was a classic number with jingle belling and air guitaring... stellar performance Jack!
Russ definitely had his fair share of running here and there during the days leading up to Christmas.
It sure was nice when school was over for the break, and things started to settle down leading up to the big day.
We had a wonderful party at my mom's this year with the Tucker side of the family.
The highlight was definitely Santa who knew a whole lot about each kid and made it a lot of fun!
Russell Meets Santa Claus...
He thought he was pretty legit.
Santa even let me take a turn for a while!
Time for Christmas!!!
