Merry Christmas! Share some photos?

Merry Christmas to everyone here at my virtual home away from home. It's been quite a year for my family, mostly very good!

For Christmas DW, daughter and I exchanged some useful presents ( I actually got underwear-too funny). My favorite present under the tree was "Darth Tader", the Mr. Potato Head Darth Vader, totally awesome! I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and New Years (and Hannukah where applicable!). I'd love to see some photos of holiday fun, here is one that shows me what I'm most greatful for: it's my daughter roughhousing with her youngest uncle, when she was born, we could only hope she'd get this far:

Re: Merry Christmas! Share some photos?

Awesome pics, and good idea! We didn't even try a Santa Pic because Tori freaks out when any adult besides DW and I hold her! Darth Tater rules, I'm taking it to work to grace my cube. The silver lining for you is you don't dwell in a cube!

Re: Merry Christmas! Share some photos?

Chair was a costco special. He loves it, although it gets climbed on and knocked over a lot more than sat in.

The photo update made me wish dearly for a copy of photoshop, but i'm too cheap. I used Paint to cut his face from the happy pic with the mouse (making me wish for a touchscreen or touchpad), resized it, used the microsoft photo editor to touch up the skin tone, then paint to resize it and slip it over mr. unhappy face.

I still wanna darth tater! MOOOOOMMMMMMMMMM!

Hopefully she'll stay that way until she's at least 30.

Re: Merry Christmas! Share some photos?

Thanks for the pics guys! Small children really make the holidays and we don't have any small children in our area anymore. Always makes me wonder if I will ever get to be a grandma. I hope that it happens when the time is right!

The wireless headphones were a hit... so were the extra copies of the Harry Potter books that she's only read about a thousand times.

Nords, amazing family resemblance between you and your daughter. Must be the hare hair.

Re: Merry Christmas! Share some photos?

Theres some alien influence going on here. Sailor must not have pets. We have 3 dogs, 3 cats and a baby. My house looks like it just took a direct hit from a dirt bomb.

I'll see what I can do about that poor rabbit later on when I get back home from the dr's office. No bunny should have to go about without a potential meal on its head.
