A Peek At Christmas

All aboard! Santa brought Ems and Jacob new N-scale trains. They love them!! Honestly, they are just as excited about the trains as they are about the Wii! They love to send candy around to each other and their absolute favorite is to be the engineer. Christmas magic!

Two American Girl Dolls --

Jacob chugging draft style root-beer with double pearl handles close by --

Abby shoveling us out of the snow --

Abby and Fare sporting their new scarves at a family party.

Here is a shot of the kids on Christmas Eve in their jammies:
I think I said something like this: "Everybody sit here in front of the tree, let's get a picture of your new jammies! (Never mind that we've been going all day long and now you're all melting....) David, stop pulling on your brother. Jacob, it's okay -- just one picture, smile for the camera!!" :)

Here are a few shots of the kids on the Sunday before Christmas.






And the whole bunch --
