Preparing for Christmas

Here's a few pictures from our Christmas card:
Abigail danced in her 1st dance recital at the beginning of December & did an amazing job! No fear!
Abby & Mum.
Backstage, ready to perform!
My ballerina
We went to Dallas to run in the 5k of the White Rock Marathon the first of December. It was a great weekend getting together with my dad's side of my family. Here we are ready to run! I think this is going to become a yearly tradition!
2 of my precious siblings!
This is our post-race picture!
Post-race with John, Colby & Uncle Tony. Colby is very happy to say he beat me by 2 minutes!
We decided to celebrate by going to P.F. Chang's & got to sit in the back at the chef's table.

My little Jacob with my cousin, now "big" Jake!
My kid's posing in front of our tree before their Christmas program at school.
Gannie & Jacob.
Jacob had his official 6 months pictures - but unfortunately, he decided he didn't want to smile. There's a few cute ones anyway!

Isaiah always likes to pose too, since he's home when Jacob is having his pictures made.
Santa Jake

We had a special visit from Santa Claus last week! He read the kids "The Night Before Christmas" and took special requests for their presents.
Colby, a little bashful telling his wishes.
Isaiah, the elf.

Jacob was a bit scared of the big man.
That brings us to the present! We have a busy week of visiting with family and singing at church. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Jacob is 6 months!

Jacob Thomas is 6 months old! - so hard to believe it's been 1/2 a year already
You are still wearing size 2 diapers & mostly 3-6 month clothes
You eat 5-6 times a day
You are normally sleeping through the night, but you got an ear infection last week
(your 1st sickness) & have had 10 nights of not so great sleeping.
You recently began sitting up on your own
You like to make all sorts of noise, and have started saying "dada"
You are trying to lift your bottom up to crawl, but thankfully aren't moving much yet :-)
At your 6 month appointment yesterday, you were:
15 lbs 4 ozs, which is 10% for your age
27 inches, which is 75%
