This little tree was only up a day before the celebrations, but we did have a tree!

It was supposed to be a few -present Christmas, but then everyone splurged when it came to buying presents for Elias!

Legos, books, blocks, balls, clothes .. I think Elias was in shock.

Christmas dinner: potatoes, meatballs, and a wonderful salad.

Elias and Uncle Daniel reading a new book. This book was a hit: it had pictures of dogs and cats and birds.
