Jonas enjoyed several Christmas celebrations in various parts of Wisconsin and still has one yet to go!

First professional haircut!

Jonas has had a few trims from mom and dad at this point, but his cowlicks and feathery hair were getting a bit straggly looking. We took Jonas to get his first haircut on Tuesday. He was not a great sport about it, as you can see from the progression of photos. In the end, he ended up just fine with a new, short haircut and a balloon.

Snow day!

Jonas got some extra dad time with two snow days this year already. First things first: let's read! Jonas brought the pillow onto dad's lap to lay and listen to some favorite books.

Travis has turned Jonas on to the wonders of ice cream, big surprise. The two of them share bites of "ice keeee" while watching all the latest sporting events.

Congrats MaMa

When mom arrived home from her last graduate class Jonas and mom were all smiles.

Jonas knew the perfect way to celebrate his mom graduating from college for the third time. He granted just one special kiss to his mom. He made it clear that he was only going to give her just one kiss, which you can see below.

A little shrug of gratitude to share the happiness of the moment.

Jonas made sure that the dogs got a chance to share in the celebration. He loves to read "Go Dog Go", a subplot of which is a dog dating game that revolves around the question, "Do you like my hat?". As he put the hat on Greta over and over again he could not stop from giggling when he heard Greta say "Jonas, do you like my hat?" Nice work mom!

First snow of the season!

Jonas enjoyed the first snow of the season this past week. He is very patient about getting geared up when he knows he's going out to mess around in the snow. He likes to cruise up and down the sidewalk like a puffball looking for Cory, or as he calls him, "KKKKKK". On Monday, he kept pointing to Cory's house and crossing the street, but Cory wasn't home. Oh, well, perhaps another day, big guy.
Check out the fifth picture in the slide show. This is Jonas's cheesy smile. If you ask him to smile, he will give you this cheeseball smile, which looks more like he is smelling a skunk than enjoying himself. He also has a fake laugh, which he pulls out when Travis and I laugh, but he doesn't know why. I guess he just wants to fit in with the grownups.
