At last, our very-much-on-sale Canon Rebel XS arrived and I'm head-over-heels in love. It's been so long since I had a real camera -- the kind you need to hold in two hands. Anyway, here is some photographic evidence that Santa was indeed in our house.
Above, you've got Henry in his new moccasins. Moccasins were really big in our family this year: by my count, four pairs were exchanged, including this very cute and very tiny pair.
A gorgeous re-strung vintage beaded necklace, under the tree for me.
Ruby decided that she was going to ask Santa for a dollhouse in July. On Christmas Eve, she was so concerned about how Santa was going to get it into our house (we don't have a fireplace) that she started running a fever and eventually threw up. Once Aaron explained how Santa travels through the chimney and then the heating ducts in our house, emerging in the basement by the furnace (duh), all was fine and any signs of illness vanished.
Oh, and it was the year of Barbie. Girl, you'll be a woman soon.
And Aaron's sister and her girlfriend hit the craft shows hard. I got this cute book. Love it.
