Jack was laughing hysterically (with spaghetti sauce on his face and wearing his new Buckeye Kids' Club t-shirt ).
Jack had a great time with both his cousins here and was sad on Monday morning when he woke up and they weren't here. He asked for "Beya and Pheeea" all day. We hope to see them again soon!

Kevin's sister and her daughters are here! Jennifer, Isabella and Sophia arrived from New York Friday night and we've had a great weekend. It's been a blast seeing all four Lord cousins together.
Yesterday we went to the beach and couldn't believe that some people were actually swimming in the ocean. It's warm here (low 70s), but it was very windy and overcast yesterday and it's freaking December so swimming was out of the question for our crew. The kids had fun running around and we took tons of photos. Here are some highlights. (I admit they are mostly Jack, but he just looked so darn cute in his little blue shirt with his bare feet and his crazy blond curls blowing all over the place.)
We also tried to get some good family photos with mixed results.
Jack was a little out of it in this first video, but he quickly warmed up and opened every present he got his little hands on without realizing (or caring) that one might actually be for someone else.
I love that Jack sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating. Trains are hard work.
Jack got a lot of other awesome toys, too. He likes hammering on his new tool bench. Nevermind that he uses the wrong end of the hammer.He was also very excited about a giant Cars activity book.Elizabeth had a good Christmas morning, too.She got lots of cute clothes and a super cuddly bear.Hope your Christmas morning was as special and fun as ours.

Jack happily sat on Santa's lap long enough to get a candy cane and say, "Choo choo pease Sana Crause."
And then he just wanted to get down.This is as good as it gets - Kids with Santa 2008.
Poor Jack was so sad when we left. He kept asking for his "choo choo." Apparently, he didn't understand that Santa will bring presents on Christmas and not when you ask for them and get your picture taken.
Later that night Santa and Mrs. Claus were at the restaurant where we had dinner. We tried to get a family photo, but the jig was up with Jack. He wanted nothing to do with Santa since he failed to deliver on the choo choo request earlier in the day.Elizabeth was happy to have her picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus.The evening Santa episode reminded us of last year - Jack with Santa 2007
Maybe next year...
Can you believe it? Kate and I have been married for four years as of today! To start the day off right Jack and I went to the store to buy Momma some flowers and then made cinnamon rolls to serve Kate breakfast in bed. So...happy anniversary to us. Now it is time to start getting ready for Christmas!
