Merry Christmas!

We had a lovely Christmas here. The morning started (after coffee was made) with Shawn reading the story of Jesus' birth.

Present time!

Our favorite presents - Shawn's Dad drew these from photos. Amazing! These pictures don't do them justice, really.

My present from Shawn, Sarah and J - a mother's ring. It's kind of funny - Jeremiah's birthstone is the pinkish one and Sarah's is the blue one.

After a lazy morning we headed to the park to feed the ducks.

Grandma and Grandpa G came over and we ate well - prime rib on the grill! YUMMY!

Little guy was all tuckered out after an exciting day.

Merry Christmas!

In other news, Sarah is 9 months old today! She's getting so big - today she took a couple steps on her own!! Oh man. J was walking by 10 months and the way she acts (very much like he did) I wouldn't be surprised if she was as well. She's getting better with food - she can feed herself things like pasta, bread, but if I give her small pieces of vegetables, meat, or fruit she gags on them. So she's still eating baby food for those, but she's doing okay. She loves to eat, that's for sure. Her check up is on Tuesday but I'm guessing she's 20lbs and 30". She's huge.

I love the tradition of reading the Christmas story.

Miles has a purple birthstone and Kate's is blue. :)
