I did get the Christmas letter wrote and it's all sitting right there ready to do cards with ... next to the Kleenex box!!
So let me be the first to wish you the best these holidays!!
Happy Holidays from the Boyds
Our family was together at Thanksgiving this year and what fun we had. 20 month old K is walking/running and absolutely fell in love with L's dogs! His little laugh "har, har!" made us all smile. The Dalmatian was watching someone make a plate of food at the counter, hoping for a spill and I spotted D standing under her chin, letting her breathe on him. He had a look of total bliss!!
D is 3 1/2 and very busy. He loved playing superheros with M and P. (It involved racing thru the house to save someone!) But will sit down anytime to listen to someone read to him. He now wears a great superhero cape (Batman on one side, Superman on the other!) every chance he gets!
P is 8 and in 2nd grade and is loving it. Reading and writing stories, making new friends. But beware if P challenges you to basketball, she's good! I am well acquainted with how fast H*O*R*S*E adds up playing against her!! She also started playing the drums this year. Ba dum bump!!!
M is 6 and in kindergarten, learning to read, and aspires to play the trumpet! He's very into Legos (7+ age sets) It's a 3D puzzle and he loves it. He and Papa play chess every visit, and Papa confided to me that he has to pay attention to the game now (not the sports on tv) when they play!! Or he finds himself in sticky situations!!
The year sped by with visits to Nebraska, kids coming to the beach to stay with us, NE friends coming to visit us! Add lots of golf and quilting (including a fabulous quilt cruise last January!), some teen-age whales hanging around in our cove and it's been the best kind of year to have!
Wishing you and yours the best in 2015
