not just a single day. And if you're Catholic you know that the Christmas season BEGINS on Christmas Eve at Midnight and goes until the feast of the Baptism of Christ on January 13. Which is why I can say "Merry Christmas!" on December 30th. Hope you all enjoy this selection of pics from this past week.
The boy loves his drumsticks:
Christmas morning must include orange rolls from a can:
Finding a friend on the wall of Christmas cards:
What happens when you get a bicycle in winter:
And while the girls stayed home and merely read tales of snow and ice:
the boys headed north to enjoy the serenity of a hunting cabin in the middle of nowhere sans electricity and running water (Mom says a polite "no thank you" to any invitations):
where they enjoyed nightly walks in the woods, great sledding, and lego building indoors:
They came home in desperate need of baths and dying to play their new video games!
