Christmas 2009--the final chapter

On Saturday, we celebrated with my family (minus those out of state).

Meet Trimmings

Jordan got a new manga and is sporting his new hat--stylish.

A game for Ethan

"What do you mean, Christmas is over?"

Nik got the game, You Gotta Be Kidding. The challenge cards are the best. Here is Mary lapping up water from a bowl like a cat.

Uncle Todd had to dance while humming.

Nik had to stay in this pose for one full turn.

140th (and last) Layout of 2009-Family Time

I more than doubled the amount of layouts I competed from 2008 to 2009. I guess my goal for 2010 should be 280.

Christmas Part 2

Gary's side of the family came over for Christmas dinner, where we toasted to family.

Grandma Mary was such a good sport and wore Nik's pith hat all day.

Nik got to play Santa and pass out the presents.

Grandma and her grandkids

Christmas Morning 2009

Always start with your stocking

He enjoyed the bacon-flavored ends more than the minty middle.

Now you can know what it's like to be Santa

New work shirts--much needed

Who you gonna call?

I think this was treat #3 out of the 10+ he got throughout the day.

What Nik Did on Christmas Break-Day 5

Today Nik had a playdate with his friend Dylan. They were suppose to go sledding, but the icy rain in the forcast ruined those plans.

I forgot to take pictures while they were together, but here is Nik holding the giant chocolate coins he got from his buddy.
