Spencer and Grant in their long-awaited new robes made by Oma. And what a saga -- it involved driving her sewing machine to Wytheville for repair and finishing with a loaner! They are warm and awesome and the kids have not taken them off!

Christmas morning - 6 am!! Here come the Ewoks!
Spencer thought it would be nice to give the kitties milk. It did NOT agree with Hannah :-(
Spencer's gift to Grant - his expression was PRICELESS! (I missed getting that moment on camera). I try not to think of all the chemicals and preservatives in this.
I enjoyed my day doing a puzzle!

We knew it would happen...Saki on the dog bed. Very happy Saki. With her favorite ornament from the tree, a little burlap tree.
Grant and Spencer did some pixel art on the gingerbread house - Mario, Kirby, and Link of video game fame!

Both kids had fall music concerts - Spencer with his youth Orchestra and Grant with the Blacksburg Middle School Band.
The first six songs are from Spencer's fall concert. I unfortunately do not have Grant's so I'll have to film him in the spring.
Spencer and I headed to Chicago for the nuptials of Evan and Kim!
