Holiday Updates!

We had a wonderful Christmas in Minnesota! For the first time, Nolan met all 5 of his cousins, 2 aunts, 4 uncles and his grandpa. What a great time. The drive up was pretty crazy. My family joked that Iowa was larger than Texas because it took us 3 days to drive through it due to 2 different snow storms! Here was a common sight on our trip~

Nolan's first Christmas was wonderful.

Here are all the cousins! Clockwise from left: Isabel, Connor, Ben, Grace, Nolan and Lucas.

They love their grandparents and great-grandparents, too!

Back at his Jones grandparents, we thought he made a great gift!

Nolan's 6 week birthday was on Jan. 3. He seems to be getting so big!

We had warm temperatures last weekend so Nolan got to get out quite a bit. What do you think of his cozy outfit from grandma Kathy?

Ted also got his first vacation since this summer. He had finals one week after Nolan was born and enjoyed his well-deserved break reading "Harry Potter" (mom's vacation will be coming in 18 years, right?)

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and we wish you a happy new year!

Wow Nolan has gotten soo big! I hope you guys can come to maine this summer so Nickolas and Nolan can meet. I bet it would be neat to take pictures of them together. It looks like you guys had a ton of fun. I love the photo of Nolan as the present.
