Christmas at the Jacobson's

This year it was a different kind of Christmas  . . much more meaningful than ever before. We all knew and felt that Dave aka Mr. Grumpy was missing  . . but at the same time you could feel him all around us.  It wasn't so much about the presents but more about just being with one another  . . we ate so much and even laugh alot too.  My kids are the best . . so loving and kind . . and so good about all the changes that have taken place within our own family this past year.  I feel so blessed to have these kids of mine . . they are truly presents to me.  The picture above is from Christmas morning  . .  peanut brittle from See's has been a Christmas staple around here since they were little.  

One of the gifts Cassandra gave me was a beautiful heart shaped ornament with pink rinestones all over it . . I just love my "old-lady" pajama bottoms . . don't you?

We went to my dear friend Jennifer's Christmas day party and had such a good time, that's Davey and Jennifer being silly.

Cassandra and Brian enjoying the party too  . . boy did we eat this holiday season and constantly.

That's my Dad, he's been battling cancer the last two years and is beating it . . . Thank you God for all your goodness  . . my Dad has been blessed and we are all so grateful.

That's me and Jennifer  . . love this picture :O)

Christmas Eve was at my home this year . . that's my Mom and my nephew Angel . . this picture is so sweet.  Lots of love there . . .

That's Cassandra and Angel . . these two cousins are six months apart . . these two are the babies of the all the grandchildren for my Mom and Dad.
