Christmas highlights

Highlights of the day:  Leo sleeping until 6:30 am, his joy at getting an am/fm radio kit, taking hot oatmeal to the horse, new walkie-talkies that reach all the way to the pond, cousins and the 2011 Hess truck for all of them, building Lego and Erector set at the dessert table, floating the Lego boat in the tub,  a great time playing “Catchphrase.”

Nigel’s birthday

Just a few quick ones here — it was an early Christmas with Mary and an early birthday for Nigel.

Leo and Finn helping Mary with her presents.  Get ready to say goodbye to the tablecloth.


Listening to Connor tell a story, I’m sure.

The consequences of too many presents opened on the table!
