Even Kris Kringle needs a new toy for Christmas. He wanted one with the extended baggage tube (7'10" long) which he could stuff with presents.
Rachel gets her "dream present", a new computer.
Our annual bury Rachel in the wrapping paper event. Once she is totally covered, we tickle her and make the paper go everywhere.
After presents it was time for a walk on the beach with some of our favorite friends like this tern and seagull.
The Christmas weather was pretty brutal, but we managed to withstand the severe winter conditions down the street from home.
We hope everyone had a great Christmas, and good luck and best wishes for a happy new year!
