Christmas Eve Day in Austin

Cooler today, and a good solid rain early in the afternoon. Ben and Arrion said it was the first they had had in a long time!

Annette let Alex open one of his Lego gifts early, so she could help him put them together, before some the other Lego gifts he has requested arrive. These were all people - amazing.


What better way to get ready for the holiday, than baking and decorating cookies. Here Kaylee is helping Arrion.


Annette let Kaylee open a 'baker outfit' for her early gift.


Bob and Janie Bolger, and Lucas Bolger, stopped by in the afternoon for an hour or so on their way to their Christmas Eve church service. We were so glad to see them.


Lucas and Larry posed for me...


Here are Bob and Alex and Ben deep in discussion by the tree. I'll have a few more photos that others took to add, later, I expect.


I read Alex his beautiful book of "The Night Before Christmas" tonight, on Christmas Eve. Neat!

It was a very good day!  ;-)
