Christmas...better late than never

We had a WONDERFUL Christmas and I'm so sad that it's over. I don't want all the fun to end: all the parties, good food, and family.
I haven't been able to post in awhile because we just recently moved back home for a few months until we move down to Arizona for school. It's been so nice to be here. We are renting a house that is for sale, so hopefully we'll be able to stay in the house awhile. I have loved living in a house! I think it's going to be hard for me to go back to living in an apartment after this. It has never bothered me living in an apartment before, but now I realized how great a house really is. Well I'll enjoy the few months while I have them because I'm afraid we'll be living in a small little apartment until Jacoby is in middle school. Oh ya gotta love the medical school life. :) No, I really am excited.
Talking to Thomas on Christmas was the thing that I was most looking forward to. We came over to my parent's about 9:00 a.m. and he was calling at 9:30. I kept telling my parents that we had to call right on time because I was dying to talk to him. It was so awesome to hear his voice...I've missed it. It was also really emotional and sometimes I couldn't say anything because I was crying to much. This is a picture my mom took of us sisters as we crowded around the phone. Love you, Tom! Tyler's mom made Jacoby a couple pair of scrubs because Tyler is going to medical school. They are pretty dang cute. She also made Tyler and I some.
Just us girls after church. We all stayed at my parent's the night before and went to church with them. I love my sisters. We were all wearing black, white, and green and we didn't plan it. Silly girls.
My sweet boys on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Eve at Mark and Jackie's. Tyler's dad dressed up as santa. Jacoby wasn't too sure about him this year; he's still pretty scared.
Jacoby has been doing this funny face lately. He scrunches up his eyes like this so they are barely visible. He definitely thinks he's funny, and he is right.
Enjoying a candy cane and getting so so sticky.
Jacoby and aunt Savannah.

The kids loved these musical bells.
We had such a nice Christmas and we loved spending time with our families. I'm very grateful that Tyler enjoys spending time with my family and enjoy spending time with his. I know it is not always like that for everyone and I'm grateful he is that way because it makes me so happy. Our family received so many nice gifts from our families and I feel so spoiled. Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year and I'm so sad it's over.
My favorite cousin, Blake, gets home tonight and I can hardly wait. He has never met Jacoby. Isn't that crazy? I found out a was pregnant just after he left and now Jacoby is almost 18 months. WOW. I will be taking plenty of pictures tonight and posting tomorrow.

I love all your pictures. I'm so glad you got to talk to Thomas. I am sure that was awesome. It's crazy Blake comes home today! I'm so glad you are liking the house! We only lived in an apartment for 6 weeks, It's crazy to think we have been in our house for a year now! You will have to come see the basement. It's almost finished. Can't wait to see you Thursday!!!

Missy, Jacoby is getting so big! He is such a cutie! I am sad that you have moved. I wish I would have known I would have stopped by and said goodbye. Good luck at school and I will miss you.

I love all your pictures, too! It was a great Christmas Season and now we can do a lot of fun things that we couldn't get done over the holidays. We just need to plan. We have a lot to get in before summer! :(
