...Very White and Very Merry...


...they even had a White Christmas in NC (we always have one in ND)...it snowed on Christmas Eve the year Scout was born in NC...but Mom said it hadn't snowed on Christmas Day since 1983...

...we had put the Christmas Tree in the dining room this year...so first thing...Scout (with some help from Jack) moved all the presents into the living room...

...there were stockings...

...with a big candy cane (sent by Grandma...er...um...I mean Santa)...of course...

...a Star Wars Wii game...

...gift cards...

...and cards stuffed with money...

...mama-made presents...but you've already seen those...

...an astrology game called 'Good Heavens'...

...books of Who - When - and How...

...Scooby Doo for the Wii...

...and the Mammoth Hunt Game...

...and the very last present of all...started ringing in his hands...imagine that...what could it be...a cel phone no doubt...

...his first call...from his Papa...

...his first text...to his Grandma...

and...A very Merry Christmas to you all...

  3. How did the book 'My Family and Other Animals' go down?

    I'm always amused by which gifts go down best, even after all these years I get it wrong when I guess.

    I bought some fleece by the yard and cut it into scarves - they all loved them!

    Then the home made items which you can just tell don't quite hit the mark!

    Still, we had snow on the ground - can't remember the last time that happened at Christmas!

  4. Looks like it was a merry one! :)
    (My Grandma is here from western NC and she said her neighbors called and said they had nine inches of snow. And she also said she feels like she's been living in Alaska, its been so cold.)
