As usual, we headed to Idaho Falls for Christmas. We stayed with my parents and tried to spend a lot of time with both families. Sean's entire family was home for Christmas this year, which was way cool because it has been years since they have all been together. Jackson got to meet some new cousins and had a blast playing with all of them.
On Christmas Eve we participated in the live nativity that is a tradition of the Ricks family. Jackson was supposed to be a sheep, but he wouldn't wear the costume and was absent for most of the production-- he was a lost sheep per se! ;)Sean decided to pull out his awesome Christmas sweater (complete with shoulder pads) for the occasion. I asked him to give me a Zoolander pose and here is what he came up with:
There's our little sheep!
Christmas morning smiles. Jackson kept saying "Santa came!" over and over for the next few days.
Unwrapping Pooh Bear
I think he likes it :)
Checking out some of his loot
Sean surprised me with gift card for three maternity massages-- score! We both received some really nice gifts this year. Thank you everyone!
I always look forward to my mom's Christmas dinner and she never disappoints. She always makes prime rib and her famous rolls and everything was really yummy!

Finally, this is a random shot I'm throwing in. I took pictures of my belly every month I was pregnant with Jackson starting at 4 months. I missed month 4 this time, but here is my 5-month belly shot I took on Tuesday.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas! As for me, it is time to prepare for Jackpot's big 2nd birthday tomorrow!
