Christmas 2016

After eight years with our (second hand) sectional couch, the new puppy did enough damage we decided to swap it out for a new (second hand) sofa set. 

Dated green leather but so much easier to clean and so far no doggie issues. 

This Christmas was super chill without gifts because all the kids had agreed to forego gifts earlier this year to get an HTC Vive virtual reality gaming system. 

They did get stocking stuffers and new calendars. Between the surprise of stocking stuffers and dinner/games with friends, Christmas was a wonderful day for them, even without the usual fanfare under the tree. 

Lucy loves to lay down as close as possible to the woodstove…

Simon grew out of his baby glasses and got a new pair…

Kevin, still looking cool after his neuter appointment. He loves chewing on the firewood and trotted around for quite some time with this splinter hanging off his lip like a cig…

Lotus turns 6

We’ve enjoyed a few snow days and celebrated Lotus’ sixth birthday (a day early) with a show at the Children’s Theater and a little cake and present time at home. 

Our girl is getting big!

Lotus got a Calico Critters bunny family and a furniture set, and they have moved into the Barbie Dream House. 

The Wizard of Oz at the Children’s Theater was fantastic!
