Some Much Needed Holiday Cheer

Only 3 more Days until Christmas!

There is nothing like the joy and happiness of Christmas. It is my favorite time of year. The smells, the food, the Shopping, the giving and of course the family! And boy am I in need of a little joy and a spirit lifter! These boys just bring so much happiness to my heart! Thank goodness for them!

We had our first taste of Christmas already! On Saturday night we went to a Christmas Party, followed by a slumber party at the Mimi & Papa Johnson's'. Our Christmas with Jess' family was celebrated on Sunday morning, and it was lovely! After that we headed to Nevada City to the Victorian Christmas! We had a Wonderful Time...EVEN THOUGH IT DUMPED RAIN ON US!

After turning down many invites to Christmas Parties we decided we had better, just get out there and have a little fun! Anyone who knows Jess and I knows that we couldn't possibly EVER turn down any social event! But this Holiday season has just been so rough...

It looks like it did us a little good! Look at how much fun we were having :)

Here we have a peek of Drew peeking into Uncle Will's gift to Drew. (notice the fantastic wrapping job) haha. That just goes to show that looks can be deceiving...Drew clearly announced that that was his favorite gift :)

Little Wess and his daddy Matt.

Daddy & Trent opening Elmo...which Trent was fascinated with! His eyes get as big as Silver Dollars...just like Elmo's!

Santa & the Little Darlings

Aren't they darling! Just as happy as they can be sitting with Santa! I was really surprised that Trent didn't get a little spooked! They both did great! Drew made sure to tell Santa where he'd be & ALL ABOUT THAT DARN PIRATE SHIP he has been wanting! Oh, and we can't forget the football helmet, and sward! We shall see if he's been Naughty or Nice :) And Trent, don't you just want to pinch his little cheeks! He did manage to grab a good hold of Santa's beard...poor ol guy. Oh how I love them...they are perfection!

Christmas in Texas

We are so thankful that we are going to be able to spend our Christmas with my entire Family this year! We fly out early Christmas Eve, so come next Thursday night we will be waiting for Santa to arrive in Hereford TX. Drew is worried about the change of plans, he is afraid Santa won't know he will not be home! SO we are going to see Santa for a second time tomorrow night, so that he can tell him about the change of plans, and to deliver his presents to his Great grandma & Great grandads house!
Ohhh to be three years old, and have that be the only issue in the world to worry about!
We can't wait...only 8 more days!

It has been one month already! The hardest most horrible month of my life!! People say with time this pain will ease up a bit...but it hasn't!! Especially watching Logan and Brayden...That's when it hurts the most, knowing they won't KNOW their daddy!
I was told that it was going to be hardest when everyone goes home and goes back to their "normal" while I'm left here trying to figure out what my new "normal" will be with out Jake. AND BOY IS THAT TRUE!! After the family left last year...I felt safe and secure knowing I had him here! I don't want to learn how to live without him.

In church each Sunday I feel like every service is directed directly to our family! We are a very blessed family, who has a TREMENDOUS amount of wonderful people constantly here for us and continuously praying that we will find comfort! For that I am thankful! I am also thankful for the almost 28 years of memories I do have and will make it my main priority to share as much as I possibly can with his precious baby's..who I love so dearly!

I now know how precious life is and that God has a plan for each and every one of us...so I'm going to LOVE on my wonderful FAMILY, and treasure each day I have with them! I know that every person at Jake's funeral...nearly 700 people, left that church with a plan to be a better person, to be the type of giving caring, and kind hearted man that Jake was. I hope that when I am gone I have at least half of the great things thought of me as my big brother did!! HE WAS A MAGNIFICENT MAN!! I LOVE HIM!
