It was a pleasant but uneventful Christmas this year, so we didn't end up taking a lot of pictures. Here is the collection from Paragould and Bloomington from this year. Here's Dawn and Kimberly assuming the "totem pole" pose.
Joyce opening her new silverware.
Kimberly with some Christmas candlesticks.
And Wade with some new tools.
Here's Joyce showing off some new sweet-smelly stuff.
The resemblance is unmistakable
Here's Dawn with some bath accessories.
And a picture frame that is a wood carving with her name in it.
On to Bloomington, where everything of course centers around the now-fourteen-month-old Colton. Heather looks happy enough in this picture, but Colton just got up from his nap.
Here's Kimberly ready to head out somewhere.
You have to bundle up those babies back where it's cold.
Here's Colton in his footie jammies. I think these are the same ones that Frank Gorsham wore as The Riddler.
Kimberly and Wade teach Colton about investing.
Here's a little panda bear that we brought Colton from China.
We also brought Edna these silk pillow cases.
And Frank this lovely five-dollar "Rolex".
Here's Wade with his new best friend, Gus. Gus is feeling a little like fourth place now that the baby has come along, but you know how all dogs say they
get any affection.
