Lucy finds a safe spot to survey the action.
Mary and her teddy.
Stefan spray-painted rocks and gave everyone gold nuggets.
The note read: “Ben’s mission and college fund.”

but Mary is grateful.
Excitement over socks and underwear.
Mary asked for a sister for her dolly.

Wii Music was Hansie’s big gift– Stefan renamed it “Chamber Music Hero” and they spent half the day rocking out in the basement.
Big brothers are very useful when you have a new Lego set.
Ben was thrilled with his new sweatshirt–

My fab gift was immmediately overshadowed by another sweatshirt from a much younger and cuter girl.
But he needed both to shovel out his car.
Xander doesn’t like shoveling.
Happy play days!
