Christmas Fun

We had a very happy Christmas.  We missed our far-away family and friends, but we gathered around the tree and had a wonderful time!

Ready for bed on Christmas Eve.

Daddy explained about how Santa won't come until after you're asleep.  We left cookies for him and a carrot for the reindeer.  They were gone in the morning!

And look what was under the tree!

Not only did Santa come, but Grandma Marge sent something special too!

A Tiny Trike- just the right size for Anthony.  How did Grandma know???

Vroom, vroom!

Thank you, Grandma.  I love you!


Santa didn't forget Daddy, either. (*Not a real cigar)

Or Mommy.

A new mug from Anthony!

Sometimes the elves need help from Daddies to finish making the toys.

What a big boy!

"No pictures, please."

Thank you, Aunt Pat!

And Aunt Peggy!

Playing Double-Decker bus.

Grandma Jeanne came over in the afternoon and she and Anthony hung out.

Having some snacks before dinner and discussing current events.

It's a Wonderful Life!

"Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him."
-Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Merry Christmas
with Love From the Carsons
