Christmas 2017

We've been doing all manner of fun stuff leading up to Christmas (see earlier blog posts), but the final fun stuff began in earnest with the arrival of Uncle Craig the morning of Christmas Eve. Once again Christmas included all the best stuff: Christmas movies (all kinds), open-me-firsts on Christmas Eve (with spaghetti carbonara), stockings all hung by the fireplace (well, the dog's was nearby), constant sand tarts and fudge, bubble bread, fruit pizza, Denver omelette (Trevor thought maybe we could drop the Denver now!), gifts from California and Kansas City, puzzles, goofy toys that keep even the adults laughing, a scavenger hunt, fart whistles (that got old after a while), transportation devices, braised ribs, mashed potatoes, garlic-roasted carrots, and cheesecake. All the photos are here.


A Harry Potter script!

Many of the gifts kept the kids busy quite a while.

And parents distracted.

Broncos gear for everyone!

Sandy made a mermaid quilt for Fina.

This turned out to be a scavenger hunt for a bath-bomb making kit.

Cars and trucks are always a big hit for these two.

First bike!

Transportation devices are a huge hit.

Laser Tag with enough guns for all.

Matteo got by far the most complicated package.

Mid-morning we discovered Santa had dropped a few things in the garage.

The puzzle almost got finished. By the time Craig left we
were down to the most difficult (nearly all black) pieces.

The boys thought this was Hamilton chess.
The store thought it was Revolutionary War chess.
