Papa wasted no time in removing the jolly from our house the day after Christmas, because that is how we roll.
We spent the days after Christmas and around New Year's Day messing about with holiday giftage. Santa brought Papa an HO scale train set, that will be the start of his collection (maybe he will get around to getting the trains from his childhood, too). The whole train thing is a big deal because it's why he got into engineering, and really, I am just glad for him to have a hobby that is, potentially, as expensive as mine (um, all of them).
And then the new year also saw us digging out of snow again. But we also got a chance to practice our snow angel technique.
Happy New Year! Tons of photos in flickr.
