The boys have not yet seen the train encircling the tree like a wreath.

Wrapped gifts could not compete with Thomas the Tank Engine.

That is the extent of the drafts I made before the computer crashed.

I still have a ton of work  to do to get back to where I was, but I do have most photos.  I may not have the photos from New Years in VT. 🙁

Haven’t had a lot of time to play on the computer. 🙂  I’ll get there.

I hope everyone had happy holidays.

What’s next?  The stores have Valentines stuff out.  Hmmmmm.

This video is a bit long.
But any Jack and Ted fans will enjoy it I’m sure!

Christmas in RI the 24th.

The next requirement for pre-Christmas activities was to get some cookies made. 🙂

Jack was totally into it.

Ted’s creative juices were flowing but the product was not quite right for cookies.

I started a few Christmas posts before the crash … computer crash, that is.

This one is not quite done, but I’d like to get it posted.  It will take me some time to get all my stuff updated.  I did back up most stuff and most photos.  I’m not sure if I have all the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day stuff.  I’m also thinking I won’t have New Years stuff.

Time will tell.

Lots of work before I can play. 🙂

What could be better than snow for Christmas?

(Chris and Bill did the lion’s share of the shoveling.  Bill just had to have a photo of us all covered with the white stuff. )  


What could be better than snow for Christmas AND a beautiful sunset?

Kate, Pat, and Ted hopped a plane and arrived in Boston on the 22nd late, late, late!

Next day was a whirl wind!  Lots of stuff to accomplish before the 25th.

First stop:  The Santa Photo.
The boys embraced this event.

Having had my own Santa fears as a kid, I completely understood where Ted was coming from.  😉

Jack was happy as a clam sitting on Santa’s lap!

Once the “sitting on Santa’s lap “chore was done, Ted was off and running.   So to speak. 🙂

Bill and I ventured forth early in December to be with the GA group to help Jase celebrate his 5th birthday.  ( is that possible…. that Jase is already 5?)  I guess it is.

While there we do bring early Christmas presents for the kids.

Grammie Cass couldn’t find the Morton salt so she substituted sea salt…the big kind.  I can’t recommend it!  LOL  But we did eat them all up!

What is a birthday celebration with out a big party?

Check out this great party place!
