This Christmas season was totally busy. We did the nativity scene with the LeBarons, Santa with the Palmers, Christmas Eve with the Cooleys, and Jacob meeting some good friends that moved away. Then of course Christmas Day was fun and very busy. Alst night Jacob went to see the Temple lights after myself and the Cooleys sang at the Temple.

Makes you think

Today as I was visiting some blogs to keep up dated with friends and family, I discovered that a friend of mine had passed away. She is only a few years older than I am, and I only knew her for a short time. Unfortunately I have not spoken with her for a while. Earlier this month after a long battle, she died of cancer. She was always happy, kind, and full of life. She will surely be missed.

It is unfortunate that some times it takes something drastic like this to make you think about what you have done in your life. Am I doing all that I can to be happy, kind, and full of life? Am I doing all I can to come closer to my Heavenly Father? Even though we can't be perfect, there is always room for improvement. I have never been one to do New Year resolutions, but the idea of making goals is always a good idea. I know that I am very grateful to to sealed to my family for all eternity. I am grateful to have a wonderful Husband, who is so kind and hard working. I am grateful for a wonderful son. I am grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ, and for my family.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! This year is Jacob's first Christmas. We are all so excited. It is so fun seeing how much he grows up. The other night was so funny. I put Jacob in bed, and about 15 minutes later JJ went into the bedroom and could see these little eyes peeking at him. Jacob had turned around and rolled over on to his stomach, and was holding himself up and just waiting for one of us to come in. He is such a fun little kid.

JJ has been enjoying med-school, and it sure keeps him busy. I have been a baking queen. I've made a ton of banana bread, some sugar cookies, cinnamon rolls, pizza rolls, and caramels.

We hope that you all enjoy the Christmas Season.
