Christmas was a whirlwind with less than 4 days in Wisconsin with the Larsen clan (minus Julie & Todd :-() where we ate, drank, and were merry; we went to Christmas eve service that Owen slept through, had a ham dinner, and opened gifts. Owe also got to get his first molar at Gramma & Grampa's house! This was the first time I was up with him at night with teething, and it was only an hour and a half. Whew! One many to go???
Regardless, there were lots of smiles and giggles and good times had by all.

Auntie Julie and Todd may not have been there, but they wanted to be the ones to give Owen his first bike...even if he can't reach the peddles! :-) Auntie Julie said she would come over and fashion blocks on the peddles this summer so he can learn to ride. She remembered that's what her daddy did so she could ride her little red trike when she was little.
Christmas Day brought us traveling back to Minnesota and just barely beating the snow. We celebrated with the Reger's, but Katy and Aaron were not there. So...the day after Christmas, we gathered at Nanny and Papa Steve's to eat just a little more and open more gifts.
I believe this is Emmi under the table with Owen...being silly!
Owen, Emmi, and Cali sat so nice when Nanny was playing the piano and sang some songs with everyone. :-) Poor little Owen cries whenever we sing Away in a Manger...I have no idea just works every time. We'll see what happens next year. :-)
