Iron man joined the family on Christmas Day. He belongs personally to Caleb, but the rest of us get to be asked a hundred times a day where his bullets went. We all take care of Iron Man.
After we all opened our Christmas presents, the children took their stuff and spread out to various corners of the house to work and play.
It was mainly legos.
The boys were very happy with them. I wish I had taken notes of all the strange conversions.
They have an organized system for large sets. Ethan filled up about 20 fiesta bowls to put together his new Fire Station. It took him two days to complete it and we were eating cereal out of mugs.
Jacob’s spot at the table with a minecraft bracelet, speakers, music, Star Wars legos. Oh, and a Monster, too.
A brother at one end and a brother at the other. Fellowship over legos.
Caleb and his…..
….golden dragon, with The Golden Lloyd. If you squeeze the dragon’s head, the ball shoots out.
Meanwhile, Lillian (Grace) took her stocking and her gifts and organized a picturesque tableau.
That being done, she ate a candycane and read her new book.
Later on, she went upstairs to apply her new make up.
(new sweater, too)
Seth with his new monster feet/stilts.
(I can’t believe I didn’t take a single picture of Sarah Joy playing in her new princess tent.)
Rich works in an office all day every day so he has come to HATE sitting. This desk top (his gift) allows him to do his home work while standing. It does not go with our country theme, but this is not as important as his comfort. 🙂
My new Tiffany….had to return it b/c it was too big. They are trying to locate a size five for me.
I love my new UGG slippers!
The family was playing contentedly, so I set to work making our Christmas lunch…….stay tuned!
Tomorrow I will devote the blog to a special birthday,
and the day after that I will post about Christmas food.
