Joy, Joy Joy

Bilbo's 2nd birthday... complete with the classic pasta face.

We celebrated Christmas Eve by getting a tractor and towing our suburban out of ditch. The cop who showed up was about to write Aragorn a ticket for driving too fast for conditions he did not write the ticket after hearing how December has been for us however he did say his supervisor may issue one anyway. I'd expect that!

We just felt like you all haven't had enough of us and wanted to give you one more funsie to add to the list. After I took these pictures on Christmas Morning I told Aragorn that I had done better in 2000 when I had been in a car accident. I had totaled the entire car, seems he only totaled the right side. Our insurance companies are getting to know us on a first name basis.
In addition to this, the back window on the big van was blown out somehow into a zillion pieces after the social worker left on Wednesday.
We are beginning to think that Job is looking out for us....

Little Poppy Dolly opening her first gift. She seemed to think it was an interesting experience.

Aunt B sent over some party snapper things, kind of an annual Christmas funsie.

Each snapper has a crown, a joke/fortune and a little toy.


  1. Your family continues to be in my prayers. My mom was Emglish and I grew up with Christmas crackers. We have continued the tradition in my family. The crowns are always a hit.

  2. The picture of all of the kids is wonderful!!! Is that Galadriel on the end? It looks like she has made tremendous progress!

    God Bless you all! Merry Christmas!

  3. I stumbled across your blog today and will join in prayers for your family. It sounds like you are going thru a lot of trials just now. I also couldn't help but notice that you live in a timber frame. Cool.

  4. I am happy that no one was seriously injured in the car accident. Bent cars are a problem money CAN solve. Give me a problem money CAN solve over a problem money CANNOT solve any day of the week!
