'Twas The Night Before Christmas

And all through the house,
Jack was causing a ruckus . . .
. . . in new Christmas pajamas . . .
. . . waiting for Santa . . .
. . . and stealing the Big Guys cookies and milk!

Tonight I feel so overwhelmed with gratitude and a bit of loneliness too. Waiting for Santa to fill Jack's stocking brought a bit of heartache for me tonight. How I wish he could fill Gavin's too. How I wish Jack could be sitting in these pictures with his beautiful older brother!
However, even in the moments of grief we found ourselves in tonight - our spirits are lifted and comforted. Jack is such a beautiful bright spot in our lives. He lights up our lives with joy and delight.
I know Jack didn't completely comprehend Christmas Eve tonight (or even at all!) but he sure felt the excitement in the air! He was a little animal crawling all over Jason's parents' house and entertaining his extended family with his dancing and clapping all night. He loved being the center of attention and receiving lots of hugs and kisses.
Jack makes me feel . . . jovial again.
