Guess who got a new toy????

Ok, well, he got one too. But mine is bigger. St. Louis is frightfully, freezingly, bitterly cold and so I celebrated by buying myself a new camera and passing my old one on to Marcus who had dreamed of finding one underneath the Christmas tree only to find himself a pretty dissapointed child after it was all said and done. Since Christmas is the time for miracles and since, according to my friend Tara who knows about these things, Christmas is NOT over until Jan 6, we decided to make a little Christmas sparkle happen at our house today.
It will take me half my lifetime to figure this thing out, but I took as many pictures as my eyes could take and meanwhile Marcus stayed rather busy taking pictures this next one he is taking pictures of feet. "Come here." he called to his siblings. "Get your feet right here. No. Here. Scootch your feet over Weston. ESTHER GET BACK HERE!"

I wouldn't be able to tell you why Esther is in a state of half undress, but I can point out the almost done, very lovely new floor that Dustan has been working himself to death on.

Actually the January 5th is the twelfth day of Christmas ;) It has to end then to properly celebrate Theophany and the start of the Mardi Gras season on January 6th.
