Every Christmas is great. I get to spend time with my family, eat some good food, celebrate the birth/life/death/resurrection of my Savior, it's my favorite time of the year. This year was especially good for a particular reason. You guessed it! It's Jude's first Christmas. Ok, so I know he's not old enough to be excited about it yet...those years will be super fun, too. But, it was truly amazing to be able to celebrate this season with my wonderful husband and my new son. And Ross and I even got to have a date night, too! There are lots of pictures from the whole weekend, so I'm just going to share as many as I can without being too obnoxious.
On Christmas Eve, we had dinner at Grandma and Granddad Fergus' house. I only got pictures of Jude and his second cousin Maddox.
Then, Christmas morning came. This is what awaited Jude...
Jude got this horsey from his Nanny J and Papa Mike...and he loved it!
Jude in action. He wasn't as into ripping open the paper as I thought he'd be.
We're wearing our lovely scarves that our aunt Meme made for us.This is what our dogs did a lot of the time
Then we went to my mom's to be with them. It was a great time.

Happy Birthday, Phil!
The gangsta side of my family
Eventually Jude got tuckered out....
And so did Ross...
Then on Friday, it was off to my dad's to spend time with them. We had a lot of fun!
Jude was a leeeetle unhappy here.
He wasn't yelling at Shawn, promise.
We also went to my sister's to hang out with her some. Jude and Shawn were playing together.
