A Merry Christmas to you all...even if it is a little late in the day. I meant to post earlier; in fact, I did post, but somehow the internet rejected my Yuletide offering, complete with multiple pictures. The pictures are on Flickr now anyway.
This is Claire posting, by the way. I'm using Brad's account as I'm waiting for Blogger/Google to let me into the new exclusive club/registration/whatever.
We have been enjoying having K & L's family here this weekend; it's been LOADS of fun!
Well, we had an interesting Christmas experience. Last night we had a bonfire after dinner and roasted marshmallows, until it started raining...at which time, we came inside and decorated gingerbread houses in honor of Andrew, and a great time was had by all. This morning we had waffles and opened some presents, including a toy hand grenade which provided many opportunities for fake disaster. After a lull in the festivities - to absorb our new gifts and give Drew a chance to nap- we headed over to Daddy and Mama's to continue the binge of gifts and merriment...and Christmas dinner!
After dinner Ethan and some of his older male relatives went out to play with his new toys; he had a bit of a disaster with a couple of rusty nails. Blood! Tears! ( There was probably some sweat involved too...) But all was well, eventually. In the above picture, if you look closely, you can see a hint of a bandage on Ethan's hand. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some drama...
