We hope you all had a very happy, joyful Christmas and New Year. Our was GREAT! Lucas and I were able to spend some time with the Quast side and the Nelson side. Paul was able to join us for the Quast side. Something about having to work and busy season...what kind of excuse was that? ;) What was fun about this was we had a total of 3 Christmas'. One was between Lucas, Paul and I. The other two was with our prospective families. Shock of all shocks, Lucas got royally spoiled. He easily had double our presents combined, but that's okay! Parenting is about sacrificing, right? ;)
We have loved spending time with each of our families. A neat thing happened at the Quast family Christmas. Paul, Linnea, Art and their Mom were able to play together. Lucas had a blast seeing/hearing them play their instruments. He was quite the dancer! We also got pictures taken with all 17 of us. Lucas had a great time waving to Grandma, climbing the 'brown mountain' with grandpa and keeping up with his cousins. It was here he had a chance to meet a cousin from my mothers side. They were sooooo cute together. They watched each other, held hands and just had a great time! Then Lucas and I headed to MI! Here he has had a great time re-getting to know his aunts and uncle, as well as his grandparents. It was here he continued to shake his head 'no' to any time anyone would shake their head yes! It is the cutest thing to watch. He is also proven to be a great fan of 'bouncy, bouncy.' This is especially true with Uncle Jared and Grandpa!
We hope you enjoy the pictures!
Notice what he is missing? Dad (Paul) had just changed his diaper. It wasn't until I said, "What about his pants?" that Paul realized he hadn't put them on! ;)
Who said boys couldn't pull off bows? Here is Lucas with one of his favorite presents, a cell phone!
Lucas pulled this box onto himself and was fine for a few seconds. This is the picture that dad took when Lucas realized he needed help!
These last two were taken yesterday. I absolutely love them to pics, now who can argue with his cuteness?
