It’s all good news this year from the LC household. No broken bones to report. (At least, not yet.) Grandpa got the kids some remote controlled helicopters, which were a big hit, except for the times they were flown into people’s heads. Nobody was injured, so it’s all good. Here’s a little video of the helicopter terrorizing our family on Christmas night. (I know, I should have taken the picture off the mantle before I put up the village, but I wasn’t feeling well, so it’s a miracle the village went up at all.)
Thanks, Dad. The kids love the helicopters. So does the cat. Every time he hears their little motors going he wakes up and comes in the room to check it all out. He is smart enough to run and hide when they get too close.
Besides the helicopters, we did all the other Christmas things. We went to a beautiful mass on Christmas Eve. I heard that our church had 800 in attendance for the children’s pageant. It seems to get bigger every year.
Fast forward to after dinner on Christmas night. Dessert was served (and my pumpkin pie was a hit) and we moved along to games. This year we played Wits & Wagers Family. It was a lot of fun, everyone liked it from the 8 year old to the 70 something.
I hope your Christmas was as good as ours. God bless.
Oh, and I have to say, it was nice taking a day off from politics. One whole day without thinking what our government is doing to us. Or close to a day.
