Christmas Time is Here!

Clockwise from top left: Grandpa reading to Charlie, on the plane, Granny B playing with Charlie in the sink (warming up foot for blood test), assembling a new toy, center of attention at Lowe family gathering, brothers battling in Canasta, view from plane headed west, sweet Cleggs

This year we are doing a family tour, so to speak, for our Christmas break from school. We started off with a fabulous time in Utah with the Merrill side. It was just so good and there were just too many pictures for one blog. As always, click to enlarge.

Decorating the tree. Charlie inspecting the tree and walking.

Best parts:
-Charlie taking us on walks around the house (and around, and around...)
-decorating the tree and listening to Christmas music
-Lowe family get together in Mona
-Games (Canasta battle 0' brothers, and Taboo with Granny B and Grandpa, intensely funny)
-lunch with Shawn
-Charlie watching the flocks of starlings out the window
-Charlie chasing Ginger

Thank you for a most wonderful (almost) week. We busted our guts laughing, shared so much love, and felt Christmassy the whole time. Life is good and family is nothing short of wonderful.

Had to add this one: mine and Charlie's hand prints in the snow (his first, he was fascinated).
