A Christmas Story

Please note that no eyes have been shot out... yet.

Wamsted December

Merry Christmas! Apologies for several things: (1) The lack of festive pajamas in the Christmas-morning photo below. You just have to trust that it is, in fact, Christmas morning by the chalkboard Advent calendar on the wall. (2) Our extended absence. We've thrown three parties in three weeks here at the Wamsted house, plus three Christmas pageants, plus five colds. And a partridge in a pear tree?

 Outtake, timer, group photo. How cute is Millie?
John & Papa Al, party #2. Twelve Wamsteds, two Picketts, and a Dunn came here for pre-Christmas Christmas last Saturday. We captured exactly two decent photos.
 And here we are back at Christmas morning (you can tell from the pajamas, remember?).
Merry Christmas, people! We've got ten days of holiday yet to come, so hopefully we can get something else posted before February!

Fall Leaves

Get ready... get set... GO!!!!
Jay raked leaves into a giant pile for the kids in Augusta.  They ran and jumped into it over and over and over again.  It was awesome!  (And, just in case the pictures are misleading, that brick path drops off onto a wide strip of grass.  They were not jumping onto brick or road or anything that could easily crack their skulls.)

Happy Birthday, Simon!

Simon turned 2 on Saturday.  We celebrated in Augusta with pancakes for breakfast, pb&j for lunch, and pizza for dinner.  To top it all off, we had cupcakes and ice cream!  Not to mention, presents!  Simon didn't really get the concept of presents ahead of time, but he sure liked them once he opened them.  See the backpack from Gramma below for proof.  Happy birthday, Si.  We love you, little one!
