While you start to work on your happy new year...

I'm still uploading Christmas.

See, now? Sometimes I take pictures. On special occasions, like Jesus' birthday. But these first few are from Aunt Jane, who takes lots of photos. Better ones than mine! Plus, when I opened the camera bag just now, I found a whole box of Whoppers. Talk about positive reinforcement. Now whenever I see the camera, I will salivate like one of Pavlov's dogs.

My Jane, at the Beesons on Christmas Eve.

And Sammy, with a fresh new haircut.

Ross and some cousins. There are 19 more kids not photographed here, who are likely busy braining each other with nerf swords. Which are not as soft as you'd hope.

Christmas morn. Anticipation.

Jake got some new Nikes.

Unwrapped, but not cleaned up.

RC helicopters. Mostly busted by sunset Christmas day. And check out our winter lawn. Overseeded that myself. We had a little bit of frost on it. We call that "White Christmas."

Tom is still wearing Ross' batting helmet.

On the Rhino with Gramps.

Cousin Will.

Aunt Jen

These go-carts say they are for kids 12 and up. So we told Grandma to go ahead and get one for Tommy. Who is three. That's what we like to call "good parenting."

Sam, trying out Charlie's hog.

Jake, who wants his own go cart. One that goes 100 mph. He's been checking them out on Ebay.

And me. Thanks again, Aunt Jane!

Ooh-I want one of those go-carts, too. Looks like much fun.

Fun-fun! We here, about 40 miles east of San Francisco, as in California, had three inches of real live snow on December 7th. It was the bestest Christmas miracle ever! Normally we have to make do with the frost like you do. Funny thing, in Colorado, they call frost "snow". Go figure.

In answer to your question:

"The Kid's N Clay Ceramics Book" (I know you're jealous)

"Mr.____ & Little Miss____" set (purchased from Book Order, for me, by me, for nostalgic reasons.)

"Execution Dock" by Anne Perry (I love her Victorian England mysteries--and the author herself has quite a fascinating biography if you dig for it.)

"Enna Burning" by Shannon Hale (the sequel to "Goose Girl" which I really liked. Clean, quick read.)

"The Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon which I've heard great things about.

Doug also got a Jonathon Stroud book which I plan to read (We love all his stuff) and the latest Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson book which I'll probably read. If I can gear myself up enough.
