How many dudes can you fit in the turret?

Auntie Kitty makes for great entertainment! Z could play with the dudes and the castle for hours. We all had to take turns fishing the knights and pirates out of the turret. We also had to fish out remote controls, pigs, farmers, socks, and even a pancake once (thanks grandpa for handling that one!)

Merry Thanksmas Eve!


Christmas Eve happened a little early this year in Iowa, and for the first time, Z was able to unwrap some of the presents himself. He tore the tiniest piece of wrapping paper off, and then insisted on handing it to someone. Then he tore off another teeny tiny scrap of wrapping paper, and handed it to someone. It took forever to open all of his presents, but it was fun watching his delight at opening everything. It might have been the day after Thanksgiving, but it felt like Christmas. Everyone sitting in Mame's living room, with a belly full of rye bread and rice cooked in milk, enjoying the tree and opening presents. 

We love and miss all of our family in the QC, and hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!

Love and Kisses!!

Feed Me, Auntie

Hey Auntie Kitty and Mame!
So, uh, whatcha got on that plate there?
Why yes, I would love to try a bite!

Score 1 for Z! Don't worry, I'll be back for another bite.

Z is quick to discover who in the room is eating something, and even quicker to exploit them!
