Merry Christmas!

Christmas Isaac and Jon

I hope everyone had as enjoyable and relaxing Christmas as we did! Our older two boys were so excited, and couldn’t wait until it was time to go downstairs and open some presents (we told them they had to wait until 8 am, and they were actually very patient). Santa was far more generous than he should have been.

Ben, on the other hand, couldn’t be bothered and slept until the only presents left under the tree were his! Of course, his brothers helped him unwrap them.

Here are Jonny and Isaac in their brand new Legend of Zelda t-shirts. I wonder where Santa found those? Santa brought Isaac a brand new Nintendo DS, and Jonny got an awesome VTech kids’ digital camera (which Santa found at a great price).

Best of all, Isaac missing two front teeth finally started growing in just in time for Christmas!   He is eagerly looking forward to eating corn on the cob again this summer!

    Karen: Thanks for the nice comment. You stumbled upon our blog during a particularly self-pitying day. It’s tough, but rewarding as well and what’s life without a little existential angst once in a while? Both Maureen and I have enjoyed your blog from afar, so it’s nice to touch base via the wonder of cyberspace + the small world of CdLS.

    Sonia: yes, Ben loves his bongos and his activity block.
    Lara: Isn’t the camera cool? It’s perfect for the preschool age group.
    Joel: Welcome! We all have days like that, but fortunately the good usually outweighs the bad. 🙂 I can’t wait to read more about Hope.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Glad the boys made out so well for Christmas. I can’t wait to see them again; just don’t know when at the moment. I’ll keep you posted (as usual)
