Christmas Edition

He's practicing for the real deal in a few more years.
Kasen started walking about a week and a half before Christmas. He loves to get around. Kai and I aren't quite sure if we like it as much as he does since he's able to break into all kinds of new things now--and faster!
Fell asleep on the Wild Africa Tram at the WA Park. I love it when he's cuddly just before a nap.

San Diego
SD Zoo
Christmas dinner. I made a Martha Stewart turkey this year that was to die for. I can't take credit for it though since I only followed the recipe and didn't invent this new delicacy. But I'll make it again for sure!
Opening presents on Christmas morning. This was the "Little People Airport" by Fisher Price.
Uncle Brit bought Kasen his very own computer since he is overly interested in every computer.
Nini came for a visit at Christmas and we did many fun things. This picture is from Downtown Disney on Christmas Eve.
Kasen's 1st Christmas.
One of the only times Kasen get's upset. He loves bath time!
He is so funny and random during bath time. This picture typifies his bath time personality.
I know it's blurry, but this picture says it all! It's one of my favorites.

At Sea World for the Christmas show.
This was SUCH a great performance!!! I was so impressed with how they left Christ in Christmas. Most large organizations shy away from that nowadays in an effort to appease everyone from all beliefs, but every song they sang was a true Christmas song (Silent night, O Holy Night, etc.), not just holiday songs.

The show started with Michael W. Smith's "Christmastime"--my all time favorite Christmas song. There were dancers and singers up front as pictured below. There were also dancers and singers that mingled in the audience. At the end of the show, they asked the audience to stand with them as they sang "Joy to the World". I would definitely recommend the Christmas show at Sea World!

Shamu and her baby
K2 and our baby. Keeping warm during the show
Snuggling in an ice cave
A very messy eating experience. Avocados, raspberries, and bananas. Oh, did I mention that Kasen hates bibs?
But he loves swinging!
And leaves!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too!
