I would have posted this in a more timely manner, but we were experiencing major technical issues in the form of a nasty virus that knocked the computer out. Several hours and a lovely phone conversation with the tech later, we are live once more. Go team.Christmas was wonderful. Quiet, just like I like it. We even had some snow! Here's our nurse Jane on Christmas Eve with Dakin--it was snowing, though the camera didn't pick it up.
Dakin trying on Mommy's new sunglasses while unwrapping presents.
Dakin got many cool presents--this one is one of them. It's an Old Lady for singing "I Know an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly," which is, in my opinion, one of the best kids' songs ever. It even came with little stuffed animals that she eats. Awesome! Boy, did this kid make out like a bandit. He got cars, books, clothes, toys, art supplies and his own personal volcano.
After we were done unwrapping we of course had a mountain of paper everywhere. Strangely, Dakin was really subdued until I cleaned it up--then he perked up a lot. Hmm. Creature of habit, this one. He doesn't like unwelcome things in his environment, I guess.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
