Christmas was a great time at our house. We had a house full of visitors. My parents, Grandad Jake and GG Kathy all came to celebrate Christmas at our house. With my parents came Bruiser, their pug, who made four dogs in our house. In the last month we have added to puppies to our family. Aubie (Jackson's pug) and Pepper (Johnathan's puggle) have brought little puppy pitter patter to our home. They have been a lot of fun to play with. Jackson is also learning what fun it is to clean up the puppies messes. I must say, though, he has been a trooper. We also got a great Christmas gift on Christmas Eve. My brother, Robbie and his wife Emma delivered their baby, Jacob William via emergency C-section. Everyone is doing fine. They are home enjoying their new role as parents to a very cute little boy. We had a great Christmas Day. We spent the morning with my family opening gifts and having brunch. Around 2 pm we went to the hospital to visit Rob,Emma and Jake. We took them their gifts to open. Jake even got a "Baby's 1st Christmas" stocking full of baby stuff from Santa. Then it was off to Johnathan's Aunt Charlotte's for the chinese auction gift exchange. We had a great time visiting with Granny,Charlotte, Margaret & Jimmy, Brian, Amy,Anne Marie & Jamie, and Meredith. Jackson had a great time playing the Wii with Brian. After that it was back to the hospital for some more time with Jake. Christmas was a long day, but the whole family had a great time just being together.
