Happy Holidays - Part 2

Christmas around here is a VERY big deal. The Blumklotzs (and the Williams) go all out. This year we extended the holiday as long as possible and yet we still managed to get Grammy's decorations put away and her tree recycled just after the New Year. I know much less busy families who still have all their lights up and it's already the 5th!

Here are Jason and the kiddos on Christmas morning. They are dancing and singing because they're so excited to go to Grammy's and open their presents!

After a delicious meal with the whole family we spent most of the day opening presents. As mentioned in our last post we got this fantastic camera. Kathe got a way cool bike. Here she is riding around the neighborhood with Jordan. See it doesn't rain here all the time. In fact we even got a little snow on Christmas!Not to be outdone by big sis, Ike got some cool gifts too. Including a real drum (not a toy one). It turns out that he is a real music lover like his daddy. He often stands next to the stereo and shouts "more, more" meaning, put on some more music so that I can get down and boogie. He loves to bang away on it (so does Kathe as evidenced by the photo below).
A few days after Christmas Bryan and Melissa invited us over for a holiday party.We had lots of fun playing with their Wii , watching Frosty the Snowman, eating, juggling and harrassing the pugs (Ike especially liked that last part).

Here are Jason and his lil' sis Beth enjoying each others' company.
