We traveled to both St. Louis, Missouri and Estes Park, Colorado during a 9-day window, via CAR, but it was a lot of fun spending time with both our extended families and as a family of five.
Here are just a few pictures capturing Christmas around Our Someday Farm...
Large photo...Santa's elves love to wrap gifts...especially using grosgrain ribbon!

2: Luke's most-loved gift of all...a wooden car carrier from Doug and Melissa. (Don't you just LOVE wooden toys?)
3: Benjamin playing harmonica...a simple and highly loved stocking stuffer!
4: Luke on Christmas morning.
5: Benjamin insisted on wrapping his own gift to Mommy! I love Kindergarten print...and that he spelled out our last name!!!)
6: Mary Catherine showing off her new ear muffs from Auntie Julie and Uncle Johnny. Adorable!
7: Mary Catherine insisted on feeding Santa's reindeer, but we were out of oats. She improvised with cherry tomatoes...labeling one per reindeer! ;)
