Alex is digging under the tree trying to find gifts that don't belong to Chelsea. I think all of ours have been opened.
We have dad bar-b-queing and John also has his grill going. Lisa and her kids came over along with John, Alex and me, Diane and her family don't come and have dinner with us. There's dad telling us food's done and let's eat.
Of all the family Vanessa is the one that don't need to exercise, but she's the only one doing it.
Lisa painted this picture her first one like this, and gave it to mom and dad for Christmas. This picture doesn't do that picture justice. She did it all freehand and she did an excellent job. She did another picture but it's in the drying stages now.
Here's Alex with one of his Christmas gifts, his electric guitar. Then below he is playing with his guitar hero game, while John watches.
Below is Lisa and Dad, Dad came and joined us for just a minute and while he was there I decided to take this picture.
I bought a new camera for myself, I've been trying it out. Not sure how to work it yet to get the best pictures. I have found a class that I will be taking that will teach me all about the features of an SLR 35m camera.
I got this picture of the 3 Johns, but everyone in his family is either married to or named their child John. On another note Chelsea called us last night at midnight and everyone got to talk with her. She didn't have to work on Christmas eve, but she has to go in on Christmas day. She's begging us to keep the tree up so she can open see the tree and open her gifts by it. I'm still thinking about that, it's a real tree and it's been up since the beginning of December.
After all the gifts were open; the paper cleaned up and just before it was time to leave he decides it's chocolate pudding time.

Alex's class did a medley of 3 songs she made up a few years ago, the tune was to a few popular songs around.
When the class I had was up on stage, John got a picture of me peeking in the door.

Here's a picture of his snow Angel he made today.
Above is my burning bush you can see how far up the snow is. This was about 7:30am. Below is the tree by my porch, looks like there's to much snow on it that it's making it lean.
I took these last 2 pictures about 2pm. Alex and John decided to get out into the snow, John cleaned up the sidewalk because it became a little bit more snow covered, not as much as I had to shovel. They let the dog out and she decides to have a taste. It's still snowing but very little.

In the cafeteria they had it sit up to give each child a t-shirt and bag of candy.
I went back and looked the magic number is 4.

Time to eat, why do they stop when the camera comes out?
Now after dinner and the clean up crew gets done we get out a puzzle. The doctor told mom to exercise her brain and puzzles was one of the ways to do that. We've been trying to get her to work the puzzles with us, she does some but would rather watch. It looks as though all she is exercising is her mouth, chewing up that gum.
