We had a very merry Christmas! Once again, we did lots of traveling, saw lots of family, and opened many gifts. I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to park in our garage again. Somebody got so many presents that we almost had to rent a U-haul to get them all home.Really, this is ridiculous. This is the mound of presents before we (the Dell, Bell, Sward, & Cummins families) began opening. Daniel, being the newest inductee to the family, read the Christmas story for us. Zane had fun monkeying around with his bff, Jake.
Zane got a little antsy during the Christmas Eve service at church. Skeet took him up to the balcony. We all got a good laugh when we heard, “Hi, Dada!” and looked up to see little Z in the balcony waving at us! He also gave us a laugh during communion when he reached over and helped himself to some communion crackers. By the look on his face, I think he immediately regretted that decision.
Zane had a big time opening presents. And playing with them…. And modeling? them….. But his favorite part of the night was playing in a huge box of peanuts! I don’t have a picture of it because I was busy videoing him, and since my video camera is not charged, I will upload the video later.
So, when Matt and I got married, we received a…um… rare, very interesting, wedding gift. A white, porcelain, SEAL TOILET BRUSH holder. Jealous?
We decided last Christmas to pass this special gift on to Lindsey and Erik, the newly engaged couple. This Christmas, though we hated to see it go, the four of us passed it on to Kara and Daniel. I’m sure they are already clearing the mantle to put it on display!
Christmas 2010, to be continued…..
