Family Time 2

A Christmas fundraiser took place for The Reed, a renovation of a family stage and a playground at The North Country Fair. There was lots of song, energy, food, etc. The press was a bit annoying, but we survived.
Nettie Spaghetti performed her wonderful stuff and other singers did as well. Here is some of the loot she brought along:

And here's Nettie!


DD attended the kids portion but stayed home for the evening event.

And so Christmas at last, on the 28th. So here are the recipients of the laser guns! OYYYY! There were plenty of other wonderful delights for everyone.

2008 came to a close. Here are some highlights:
An award for Skyler, to be passed on one day. He survived a LENGTHY trek with no whining and also encountered a grizzly!

Indy was lost for 3-4 days this year and then FOUND! What a relief for all.

A great trip to Peru with treasures brought home for baby:

There was of course the family Christmas puzzle time too:

New Year's Eve was a sleepy time for most, but we managed some mistletoe photos later on.

Later there were short films to watch (great ones!)

It was minus 30C (about -22F)on the deck, but sunny with fluffy snow.

DSIL and DD set to work on their project, insulation of their sunroom.

And next Christmas, who will be wearing this?

GB I loved looking at your holiday photos. I cannot imagine how difficult this time is for your family. It looks like this holiday time together was good for everyone.



RE: Family Time 2

Marie, I am enjoying all your holiday pictures too. I am hoping and praying that this year will be filled with happiness for all of your family.

RE: Family Time 2

Another wonderful series of photos Marie! Thanks for sharing these,

RE: Family Time 2

Those Peruvian sweaters are beautiful! Great picture of Skyler and Indy. I echo Marian's wish for much happieness for all your family in 2009 - and the future in general.

RE: Family Time 2

Great photos - but what did the bunch of nuts find in that box?!?

RE: Family Time 2

LOL, V! I wondered the same thing! I enjoyed how some people in the drawing look perfectly fine, until you check out their ears or feet!

If looks count for anything, you all certainly look happy and healthy! I wish a wonderful 2009 for you and your family, too, GB.

Skylar's growing up! I was so happy to see the Golden Shoe Award.


RE: Family Time 2

Love the action shots of Skylar. And you do need to tell us if there were nuts in that box, or....? I really enjoyed your DSIL's caricatures - he's good!

RE: Family Time 2

Great to see the final results of the Golden Shoe Award -- you share such warm and fuzzies re your family, 'bug - thanks so much == you're a great story teller.


RE: Family Time 2

What a fun winter trip! You all look like you managed to squeeze some fun out of the holiday. Loved the puzzle photo, you all look so engrossed. Have to try to get that puzzle out on the DR table next time we all get together. The sweetest little Moose outfit! Gardenbug, have you started thinking of any names yet? Love Sklyer with his arm around DD's shoulders. Wishing for everything wonderful for all of you in 2009!

RE: Family Time 2

Great pictures 'bug! It looks like a lot was squeezed into your trip. As I have now experienced, I'm sure it wasn't easy to leave. Your DD is glowing and I'm amazed how much her hair has grown. The baby clothes are unique and adorable.
