Dear Jack,

We loved watching you this Christmas. You loved telling everyone that it was Jesus’ birthday and you brought us so much joy with your excitement and anticipation. You were the best Christmas cookie baker and helper any mom could ask for, and we are so proud of you for working so hard every day on them. We are so proud of the big brother you are to Max and Lincoln, and we are so thankful for you.

We love you,
Mommy and Daddy


  1. Little man Jack, he's such a beautiful little boy and he captured my heart. I can imagine the wonder he must have felt during this magical and spiritual time of year.

  2. I love this idea - capturing those special moments from the holiday each year. Thank you for the thoughts!

  3. These were such sweet posts and what a great idea to capture Christmas in each boys eyes for that year. Do you do this every year? Do you assemble them into a Christmas scrapbook? I'm liking this idea... wondering if it is too late to start with my crew this year.

  4. I loved these posts about your sweet boys. Since I haven't posted about Christmas yet, I may have to copy your idea - do you mind?

    Great pictures of your boys by the way - love the one of Max.

  5. I can't tell you how much we love this little boy. He is energy personified, yet has such a sweet heart and I love how he likes to "defend" the girls on the playground. It's such a privilege to watch him grow.
