Favorite Christmas Moment

with one comment

This series is my favorite photo series of Christmas day: my sister bought the two youngest boys the same green dump truck, which they opened at the same time and got very excited about. It was insanely adorable.

Opening the truck to ooo’s and ahhh’s:

they proceeded to drive them all over the house:

and then catapult them off the stairs:

and laugh hysterically:

and yell “TRUUUUUCK!” triumphantly. Victory!

I’m writing this post as all four grandkids and various adults are running around the house screaming “ALLIGATOR!! POLAR BEAR!!!” (Working during the holidays is a little harder than I imagined.)

Happy Holidays Everyone! 🙂

Thanksgiving at Joshua Wilton House

with 3 comments

This Thanksgiving, my family decided to do something most-unusual for us, and go out to eat! The place of choice was Joshua Wilton House, a fancy inn and restaurant in downtown Harrisonburg, Virginia. Harrisonburg is full of Victorian buildings such as the Joshua Wilton House, but so often you look at the outside and beg a god of some sort to come down and instantly renovate it back to its original grandeur. This is not one of those places: every cosmetic detail on this house is perfect. The moulding! The colors! Loved every bit of it!

I took these photos of the fam while waiting to sit down. Enjoy!

(Jim took this one.)
