Christmas break, day 10

There has been a lot of activity over the past few days, both here at home and with going out of town.  We were all blessed with great things from our families (as usual), and Ian received tons of Legos, of course.  At present, I’m in birthday mode because Ian’s birthday is January 1.  Since 1999, I have always had a hectic week from December 24 until January 1.  I can explain more about that another time, but right now, I’m anticipating packing up Christmas decor tomorrow and cleaning.  I want to soon blog about Moe, our new addition.  He’s very neat.  Here is a photo essay of the past few days.

Christmas morning

Opening presents

Ian caught on a few years ago to Santa, but hes a good sport with putting out milk, cookies, carrots and sugar (for the reindeer).  He is reading Santas reply to his note.

We visited my husband’s grandmother and took a stroll to the pond.

The scarf was a gift.  It’s slighted ‘tainted’ with pink, but I think I’ll still wear it.

    planetross: I can’t imagine more Legos at this time. We gave him his b-day present early. His name is Moe.
