I should have had my camera out more, but I didn't. I did get this photo of Celia and Jack. There's a story that goes with it. When our son, Jeff, was 2 he wanted a Barbie and her Ferrari for Christmas. That was all he wanted so we got it for him. My did was not exactly happy – until he watched Jeff.
Jeff took all Barbie's clothes off (never could get that poor doll in clothes again) and he put her in the Ferrari. He'd occasionally take her out of her car and – well the best way to put it is that he would admire her form. After my dad saw that, he decided that Jeff and Barbie were OK together.
Jack loves Elanor's Barbies and he plays with them pretty much the same way Jeff did. So Celia got both of them new Princess dolls. Jack's did not stay dressed long.
This is Jeff, Jack, the Princesses reading Jeff's new book about Stinky, the garbage truck.
I'd share photos of the rest of us, but I didn't take them. But I have good memories of this Christmas and it's not over yet. We have a big dinner and games planned for New Year's Eve. Life is good.
