Merry Christmas!

My husband's sister lives in Scotland.  She mailed us Christmas gifts in December.  They finally arrived this past week.  I guess there were some weather delays?  I'm just glad they weren't lost.  It was fun having a little Christmas extension.

The kids got books.  We look forward to reading them.

I think Scots like rhyming.

We haven't read this one yet to know what the instructions are for.

Emily got Island of the Blue Dolphins.  I always mistake this book for the plot of Blue Lagoon.  Definitely not the same plot.  The book is much less weird and totally appropriate.

Mommy and Daddy got some stylish winter attire.

I think I look pretty hot in my new hat and gloves, even with the infant in my armpit.

George got a sleeping bag.  It's awesome.  He's been waking up early in the morning because I think his feet are cold.  The first night he slept in it he didn't wake up before sunrise.  I have to admit I do secretly enjoy snuggling with George in my bed in the morning.  I might miss that.


  1. Merry Christmas! I'm sorry to deprive you of early morning George-snuggles, but I'm glad the sleeping bag worked!

  2. What a wonderful surprise... I got a package yesterday too...it was medicine Jim ordered. I like yours better.

  3. Island of the Blue Dolphins is one of my favorite books. I'm sure your kids will love it!
