Christmas at Home

 It's February, and I'm only now posting this. We've purchased a new computer (Merry Christmas to us), but it all takes time to get used to. So finally I'm getting around to catching up on all these posts. Micah's big gift this year was a Lord of the Rings Lego set and an iPod Shuffle.
 Ella got a Harry Potter Lego set (which was subsequently put together with the help of Dad, then smashed by the two year-old. It now sits, broken apart, in the box in her closet).
 Mira got a couple of new Leap Frog games (one of which is now lost).
 Colin got Minecraft for the computer. (Micah's favorite gift for his use.)
 Matthew got a fun Fisher Price Loop-the-Loop car track and the books, "Blueberries for Sal" and "The Little Engine That Could". He loves these.
The kids had bought gifts for one another. I love this tradition. They get very excited to pick things out for each other, and look forward to seeing what others bought for them. They are also mindful of how much things cost. It's good all around.
