How We Spent Our Christmas Vacation (for Aunt Mellie)

In our family, you know you've arrived when you end up on Aunt Mellie's email list. She is one plugged-in, techno savvy, tree swinging, deep sea fishing, 80something lady. I wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

Aunt Mellie expressed some interest in more Sprittle pictures from Christmas. I chronicled a little about our family fun here. But one can NEVER have too many Spritlepics!  (Proceed at your own risk.)

Our wee one, Baby Blues, celebrated his first birthday December 26th.

A second after that picture was taken, he was down on the floor threatening to demolish the Lego pirate ship of which his older brother, Boo, was so proud.  (That's his first mate, Bee, celebrating with him.  I think Dad was taking a nap after helping with the construction. The contents listed more pieces than there are dollar signs in the current US debt!)

Everyone participated in our first annual cookie decorating contest, Bee,




and Baby Blues, who may not have had the fine motor skills to decorate, but was more than happy to help "clean up."


We had some fun time outside in the milder North Carolina weather,


an impromptu rock band session with Unca Dave and Bee sharing the drum solo, (I haven't a clue who that old lady is with the gray hair. Oh, wait--that's me!)


and Baby Blues' stirring rendition of "Jingle Bells."

And that's how we spent our Christmas vacation!
