This Christmas was our first one celebrating with no family. We missed family but enjoyed being with each other. The first two fuzzy pictures are of Hazel and Sam following their strings. Santa always leaves a string from our stockings to a gift. Christmas morning is always filled with strings all over the house.
Hazel got an accordian at the end of her string. Emma a Kindle, Mattie an iPod shuffle and Sam a lego set.
I think everyone's favorite though was the marble slide from Grandma. It took a long time to put together, but has provided hours of entertainment since then.
We took a short trip up to Chinatown with some friends where we got kiss fish pedicures. It was enjoyed by all, especially Sam--I had to keep telling him to stop screaming. Sheesh! We are such loud Americans.
These two babies are Tom's Christmas presents to himself. One for me and one for him, too bad there is no place to ride them around here (or thank goodness.) Don't worry there are many plans for future use when we get back to the states. And for anyone curious, they are Honda 110's made in 2012.
And, I just love this picture of Hazel getting a ride home from church on Tom's bike.
