What a wonderful beginning to a fabulous day.
The boys have not yet seen the train encircling the tree like a wreath.
Wrapped gifts could not compete with Thomas the Tank Engine.
But then the flood gates opened and paper flew!
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.
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. 🙂
While folks shopped, kids enjoyed the escalators. ! ! !
And there you have the high lights from Dec. 23.
Two days to Christmas!
Kaison and Diana.
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.
Out to our favorite Mexican Restaurant !
Oh, and they do serve food there. 🙂 …
… along with lots of hugs and smiles.
Jase’s class went to a clay place to make Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Then back home to bake some cookies.
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!
Even Sponge Bob showed up!
Kaison doesn’t look too certain , here , but he did love the ball pit.
May the Force be with you.
