December Photos of the Kids

(On the left) Playing the part of the "Mother" in the church Christmas Program.

Not quite sure what she is looking at here, but it is a great face!

Looking my asleep than awake as she is watching the TV waiting for the ball to drop.

Playing a Donkey in the church Christmas program.

I love his "happy" face when he saw what Santa brought him.

Even though he tried he was not able to make it to midnight (on New Year's Eve).  He made it until somewhere between 11:20 and 11:40.  Maybe next year!

Enjoying a little bit of fun with his brother.

Swimsuit and cowboy boots.  Classic!

Check out these new Christmas pjs!
He could not wait to dig into his stocking and find the CHOCOLATE that Santa left him!!!
Happy New Year's to All of You!

Love, The Jamison's

 Merry Christmas!!
We sure had a wonderful Christmas vacation.  We spent it in WI this year so we very sadly missed all of our Jamison Family.  We did get to have my parents and brother here with us. 

Santa spoiled all three kids this year.  Angela got a digital camera, a camera case and a digital photo frame.  Connor got the Skylanders game for the Wii.  Emeric got a Big Wheel.

Angela woke up early on Christmas morning and both boys ended up sleeping in.  It was really hard to convince her to wait upstairs for them to wake up (and to not wake them up herself). 

Once they did go down they were very excited to see what Santa had brought for them.

They all had huge piles of gifts beside them (which in a way is kind of gross), but I know that they enjoyed every bit of opening their things and seeing what they received.

We hope and pray that each of you had as wonderful of a Christmas as we did and that you got to enjoy all your family and loved ones!

Punishment Paradox

What in the world are you thinking when you read this title????  I needed a name for our "P" date, so I asked my brother to help me figure something out.  We were going to the Horny Goat in Milwaukee to attend a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater put on by the Murder Mystery Company.  I did not know how to transform "Murder Mystery" into a "P" date....but he figured it out!  Thus we attended a Punishment Paradox!  We went with my mom and dad.  On our way we talked about what we thought would happen.  I expected us to all just be the audience and watch the company put on a show for us.  At the most I thought we might have to add in some verbal "oooohhhhhs" and "aaaaahhhhhs" at specific cued spots.  Boy was I wrong.
They picked about a dozen audience member to play the cast of the murder mystery.  Of all the people from our table (which only ended up being the four of us) they picked Brian!

He became the lovely Justin Cesar.  He was a zoologist who really liked snakes and frogs.

Here is the MC introducing him to the audience. (Can you see the uber red cheeks?)
~Wonderful camera phones!~
From the moment we arrived we noticed Santa walking around welcoming everyone.  He had also been enjoying the party longer than we had as evidenced by his half full bottle of booze he was carrying around.  Not to mention all the stumbling he was doing.  He ended up passing out in his Santa chair at one point during the cast introductions.

To our amazement Santa died while we were eating our salads.  The cause of death???  Poison from poison dart frogs, which Justin Cesar and some other characters had access to. 
After talking and playing his part through dinner and dessert I was relieved to find out I am not married to a murder. But Justin's girlfriend Marsha Mallow was.  Good thing he dumped her when he turned in that SEXY Red Snakeskin hat. 


I think we all had a really good time!!

You Decide

Today, January 2nd, it was a balmy 19 degrees.

And of course Emeric is still wearing swim suits (nearly every day). 

So, when I let him wear one with all his other cold weather gear, is it negligent parenting or letting him learn from his actions?
(Okay, I really don't want you to comment on this, I just want you to enjoy the silliness of Emeric!)
