Boxing Day


After the weekend of weekends, at the end of the day, just the four of us, again, with the week ahead, together, to look forward to; a few adventures in store for us. As I put gifts away, and prepared for travel, I felt an excitement at the thought of January, when we'll be back home; the memory of incrementally lengthening days.

Cal spent Christmas afternoon building a Lego Star Wars ship he received as a gift. Today, it was accidentally knocked off a table, and it shattered. With a surprising show of resilience, he rebuilt it. 'It means I really liked it, if I played with it enough for it to wreck.' Yes.

Gillian received a star wars Lego set from Santa,but so far she's not happy with it. I think she's a bit jealous of her sister's barbies....which makes me a bit sad.
