Merry Christmas!
I don't think Jonah fully grasps Christmas yet because we weren't up at 5:00 am to open gifts.  He actually slept until 7 and so did Jackie. We had such a special day celebrating the birth of Jesus.  Having only been in California for three and a half weeks, life has been a little hectic.  It was nice to take a day to enjoy time as a family.  My Gram, Aunt Suzanne and her son Ethan (on my Dad's side) came to visit for the holiday.  After opening some presents at our "new" house, playing a little, making a few phone calls, and eating a breakfast of baked oatmeal, we went to GP's house to spend time with family, open a few more presents, eat Christmas dinner, and sing Christmas karaoke.  When we pulled into our driveway at 7:30 this evening, Jonah said "We are happy, because we are together."  That is the truth.  Here are a few pictures to commemorate this special day.  

Jonah is seeing his bike (with pedals) for the first time.  For the past month whenever anyone asks him what he wants for Christmas, he says a bike with pedals.  Since he is so skilled on his bike without pedals, he got a special orange Christmas present.

GP is very good at karaoke.

Yes, I look a lot like my Daddy!

This is Gram.  Jessi's Dad's mom.

Jackie might be ready for solid food as indicated by her eating some wrapping paper.
