Gabe, Erin, Julian, and Erin’s Mom Diana, came over to visit on Christmas. Here’s Diana, Gabe and Julian opening gifts. Julian was of course, deluged with gifts. He loved his “Little People Santa Cottage,” his guitar, his Yo Gabba Gabba Beany Babies, and his rubber band gun, which was conveniently left behind along with the louder toys, such as the recorder.
Speaking of Yo Gabba, here’s Julian playing with Muno, while Amanda looks on.
We had prime rib for dinner, followed by Brenda’s delicious apple pie, or a French silk pie…I mean “and.”
We had a rousing game of Apples to Apples, went to bed, and woke up to Snow! There’s about an inch of snow on the ground! So we have a white day-after-Christmas!
Brian, Susan, Nick, Dane, and Thor sent us a text at about 8:00 telling us that they are on their way here & should arrive about dinnertime. Can’t wait!
UPDATE: Brian, Susan, Nick, Dane, and Thor arrived Wednesday evening. We had leftover prime rib dinner. I gave the boys rubber band guns that I’d made them. Rollicking fun. Next morning, we had Christmas II:
Here’s Brian and Nick playing with the Leap Frog
Susan and Dane building a Lego beach house.
Go ‘Skins! – Beat Dallas!
And then we went to DC and visited a couple museums, the Newseum, and the art gallery. Here we are in front of the Newseuum, and the second picture is from the top.
