Merry Christmas from the Aldana family!!!

Michael took this picture w/ the time delay option... we were already dressed from being at Christmas vigil mass, so decided to take a picture before getting the kids in their pajamas. I'm so glad we did! I was so happy w/ how they came out for being a spur of the moment thing. We took a grand total of 5, and 2 out of the five turned out pretty good!

Pictures of the lunar eclipse. I only stayed up to see a partial lunar eclipse, however Michael watched the whole thing. It what really awesome, to say the least. The pictures really don't do it justice!

Jarod, Jeanne and Jada! Another great picture...

Julian grabbing is little toes - even bandaged up!

We dressed Julian up in one of Louis's old costumes, just to get a picture... the costume will be too little for him next Halloween. Doesn't he make a cute lion?
Julian, following his surgery...poor baby... the surgery only took about an hour, however we were there for 12!!! The surgeon was 3 hours behind schedule... I guess surgery is something that can't be rushed! We waited as patiently as we could, meanwhile, poor little Julian was starving!!! I nursed him last at 7 AM, he didn't nurse again for 7 1/2 hours later, and when he did, he was so drugged, he didn't eat much. Later that night and the next day, he made up for it, though! It took him a long time to recover from the anesthesia... they had to intubate him, too...

This was before his surgery - last picture with 12 toes!
