Here is a pile of presents, none of them were for us and I couldn't have been happier about it! Instead of doing gifts this year my family adopted a family through the Family to Family Program run by Boulder County. Nobody in my family 'needs' anything...we have our health, the ability to eat 3 meals a day, a roof over our heads and great friends. While I 'want' an oven that works when on Broil I have everything I need and feel such satisfaction knowing that a family will be smiling on Friday when they open their gifts that they otherwise would not have been able to afford.
Last weekend we visited the railroad museum in Golden for some family fun with lil Sam. This picture about sums about Sam's fascination with trains.
Sam is not too sure about the bearded fellow
This morning we had Tarkington Christmas since Doug and I head to Bradford on Wednesday, Jon, Beth and Sam to Houston on Tuesday and my parents to sunny San Diego tomorrow. We ate our traditional candy cane bread with eggs and watched Sam be overwhelmed by the many presents he was spoiled with. Jon and I really like Sam's fancy tricycle. If this were 25 years ago he would have surely crashed me into something intentionally and then tried to get me in trouble for it.
