Christmas morning: Santa has been here! (Will received a trip to the Rose Bowl and Dots a summer mission trip to Colorado. Vivian got some books and toys.)
Robert, Dots and my mom gather in the kitchen...
...while Will tries to convince Vivian to come upstairs and see what Santa brought her
Everyone checks out their presents
Vivian loves her new singing Rudolph toy
Dots opens a "peace" present from Biba and Sir (my parents)
Robert reads one of Vivian's new books to her
Will is very happy with his new vest and a gift of cash
Vivian's favorite gift was a life-size Cavalier King Charles Spaniel like our dog Tucker
For Christmas dinner we went to my Aunt Judy's house. The drive there was so beautiful! It felt sort of like "over the river and through the woods"
Me with my cousin Nancy Baby (known to the rest of the world as "Nancy" but to distinguish her from my Aunt Nancy, our family has always called her "Nancy Baby"). Notice my mom to the left: she is wearing a black leather jacket that she bought to take to college over 50 years ago - it still looks great!
The "adult table"
The "grown-up kids table" plus Robert
The "kids table" plus sweet Aunt Judy
Vivian, meanwhile, found a bed to curl up in and slept through the whole party!
Me, Robert, Will and our cousin Peter relaxing after dinner. I think we were watching the Cowboys game, which didn't turn out too well for our home team
As you can see, we had a very merry Christmas! I hope you and your family did too.
Seventeen and Spring Break!
