late holiday post


I'm sitting here with Christmas cards in front of me, and I'm seriously contemplating not addressing anymore.  I think I might have sent 5 out early on.  So congratulations to those 5 lucky families!
I was really proud of them too, Ben had painted the tree himself.  The original was hung on the wall.

My sister came in and we toured the shoppes in Grapevine and forgot to invite Pete to lunch!
Normally, it wouldn't be a big deal, but apparently the food at his work cafe was less to be desired.  We still had a good time.  The weather was perfect.





The week of Christmas, Tom/PawPaw arrived, and we saw the  trains at Northpark, strolled around the Gaylord, and drove through the Texas Motor Speedway lights.  
 

it was mostly disappointing like someone vomited lights.  We waited for 54 minutes and it took us 43 minutes to drive through the lights.  Once you were in line, there was no way out besides driving all the way through.  Lesson learned.
Northpark trains were also disappointing, but the mall had a Lego store, and series 9 minifigs are out, so I was able to grab a few.  

The few pictures I actually took on Christmas day are follows.. Christmas morning opening Socks.

our ginormous, DEAD christmas tree, with the good-intentions/ bad-execution-popcorn-garland, that's why there are only two strands. What a mess! Tally ate part of the lower strand one day while we were out.   

and our very own Christmas Crier!

A few days later my sister and her family were at the house for Christmas.  We really had a great time with them.  Everyone was entertained between the unicycle (YES Pete asked for a unicycle), the numerous r/c helicopters flying, and card/boardgames.
