Rice Family Christmas

We were here in town this year for Christmas, and we spent it with Jenn's parents and her grandmother. We had a nice quiet little Christmas, I guess if you didn't count all the chatting from the little chatter box, Jake! He got so many nice things. He got race cars from Santa, just what he asked for. He got a running choo choo from Nana and Papa. Nannie got him a gift card to "Donalds", which is Jake's way of saying McDonalds! We all were very blessed this Christmas!

The Freed Family Christmas

We celebrated Christmas with the Freed's the weekend before Christmas. We had lots of fun. Here are some pictures, thanks to Nancy, Ashley's girlfriend. Some of them are so beautiful!

Santa's Village

Here are some pics from Santa's Village, Mommy took Jake on the Friday before Christmas. We saw electric trains, Santa and Mrs. Clause, made a cookie and a reindeer hat, went on a horse-drawn sleigh ride, and saw some of Santa's reindeer! It was a lot of fun, and what perfect day. It was nice and warm, for here anyway.

They say it is easy, but it ain't easy!

So, thinking I would be a great mommy, I decided Jake and I should put together a gingerbread
"choochoo" Oh my, not so much fun! Not too easy either. After screwing up one batch of frosting, I had only one batch to work with, was that exciting.
Even after all my troubles, Jake loved decorating it and of course eating the decorations!

Ringing the Bells!

On Friday of last week, we rang the bell for the Salvation Army.
Jake loved it. We had my mom, me, Jake, Michael, and Matthew(my nephew)
Quite the experience!
