christmas, part two

Here are the rest of our Christmas photos from our time with Matt's family.

Here is Matt's dad's note to Santa. (The "kids" had a chance to write to Santa at the little Christmas village thing we went to.)

There were also some indoor rides to choose from.

Granny and all her grandbabies. :)

Jake, Matt's cousin. Our tough marine... relaxing with our foo foo dog.

Reading The Nativity Story to the kids from Jonah's "Jesus Storybook Bible." It's the best.

Debbie's going to kill me for posting this, but I thought it was so cute, I couldn't resist.

Deac waiting for his turn to open gifts.

Jakey and Jonah having the cutest tea party ever. Oh my word.

This one is in black and white cause the color was all messed up. I call it "Jonah reads the newspaper sort of."

Thank you and Happy New Year.

What adorable pictures! Jonah sure is a little doll. By the way, I ordered two magnets and got them in the mail today. I had two up the number of magnets purchased in Missouri, plus I wanted to help you guys a little. I too have been waiting for news on Daylon. I hope they made it back to California okay.

This is the first time I've posted for Jonah. I check on him daily. I startedchecking on all the EB kids when I met Bella thru Tim's Blog. Bella touched me like no other child ever. I had only heard of a form of EB and that was with an adult patient of mine. I have been a nurse for 34 years. I'm not working due to some back. My new passion is EB. I am learning all I can and give as much as I can for research and to help these kids and families. My heart goes out to all you Moms and Dads. You will hear more from me.
love & prayers

First of all, the tea party is one of my favorite memories of the weekend. LOVE. I will cherish the pictures we took forever! Can't wait to scrapbook them.

Second, I took some pictures of Amish Matt on the couch reading a "real book" while everyone else was on electronics. That cracked me up.

Love and miss you guys like crazy! Going through withdrawal.

Adorable! Jonah is at such a cute age for Christmas! I want to just squeeze him for his facial expressions are price less. Beautiful Family Pics! Happy New Year!

Sweet Patrice, Matt and Johan! Happy New Year! It does my heart SO good to see these photos and video! Looking at them as an outsider makes me feel like your dream is coming true; Jonah IS living like a "normal" child. He is doing so many "boy" things and experiencing all the joys of toddlerhood! I of course don't see everything, but know from his beaming smile that he is loving the life and sense of normalcy you carefully provide him between baths and bandage changes!

Regarding the photo of all the cousins in their pajamas - my thought is "Jonah needs someone to match his pajamas to". I pray God brings you a miracle and you and Matt are given another child, Patrice, because you are such a wonderful family. Thanks for sharing Jonah with us. Tracie

Gail said...
