Christmas at Our Place, Boy-Style

As we wind down over Christmas, my mind alternates between two thoughts: (1) Boy, that was fun! - and (2) Thank goodness that's over! More on that later. In the meantime, here are a few pics:

Our nearly-walking into-EVERYTHING little guy... too young to care about the presents, but having so much fun with ribbon and wrapping paper! 

"Oh, boy! What mess can I make NOW?"
The eldest, displaying his war wounds from an early morning skirmish with the babies' new wagon. His haul included two guns, two bows with arrows, an adventure book, a Dangerous Book for Boys electronics kit, and a set of adventure books on CD. He was one happy guy! 

The package on the right was his Kentucky rifle, courtesy of The Vision Forum (as were most of his gifts) - he loves it! 

More ribbon and paper!!

"Yes! Yes! Yes!"
And finally... why play with gifts when you can lie on the floor with a bucket on your head? It's so obvious!

Our Christmas went very well. It was, in fact, the largest we've ever hosted - both sides of the family plus our five. I managed to produce a dinner that worked for vegans, hardcore Southerners, gluten-free, and high-protein people all at once, and despite the massive amount of food we cooked, we had almost no leftovers!

And moreover, I managed to stay strictly on the VLC diet, despite the Christmas sugar cookies which are calling my name from the kitchen as we speak!

I hope that each of you has had a lovely Christmas, and I hope to be back to blogging soon!! Love to all!
