Happy New Year!!!

Well, we had a wonderful Christmas!  Jacob even got to have his picture made with Santa (he just would not leave his stroller to sit in Santa's lap).  Also, the kids made cookies for Santa, a gingerbread train, and some reindeer food so Santa would find our house.  Jacob got the hang of unwrapping presents very quickly - he soon wanted to open everyone's gifts (it was so cute).  Some of his favorite gifts were the Cozy Coupe from Nana, his Little People car wash set from Mema, Lego table from Mom and Dad, Firetruck from Santa, and Cookie Monster bean bag toss from Aunt Amy and Uncle Jay.  Now, we just all wish it would snow!!!  So cold right now, but no snow (come on snow)...

To finish the year we celebrated with good friends.  Jacob actually went with the sitter at the party for a couple of hours (which was great)!!!  I so long for him to really believe I am coming back for him and to not worry about where I am.  I am glad he has attached (that is a huge blessing).

So as I finish this - 2012 was a great year.  Yes, we had ups and downs while waiting on Jacob to come home, but once home he has been awesome!  We really have nothing to complain about.  He is healthy and seems to be doing very well for his age.  He is starting to speak English but would rather speak Korean and likes some American foods but still loves his Korean dishes (especially Kimchi for all meals of the day).  He is such a joy and I'm amazed at what he has taught me.   He is such a sweet boy who charms all who meet him.  A comedian who has a sweet heart (loves loves loves to share - well except for his toys).  :-)

Anyway, Happy New Year and below are some pictures from the past month (enjoy)...
