Thunderer Early Birthday Presents

But wait, there’s more! The visit isn’t over yet!

Back home Mom and Pops wanted to share a bit of birthday joy with Thunderer early since otherwise they wouldn’t be back through until January.

It was her birthday month at least this way. 🙂

She carefully unwrapped the whole thing…

Before stopping to admire.

While we started helping dig the toys out of the packaging she opened the next item!

Yes, I think she did gasp. She loved it.

Naturally she had to try it on.

And then she cradled her new toys and shared some hugs, both for her toys and for her grandparents.


Well, with as fantastic as that outfit was, perhaps I should try it on myself.

I think we’ll let Thunderer keep it. Just not my colors.

Santa Time

Can’t catch up to Christmas pictures itself without the obligatory picture with Santa hosted at the local fire department!

Meanwhile, on the walk back, TJ found an icilcle and decieded to weild it, ready for action.

Presenting Presents

Well, TJ has a girlfriend.

So now that the Halloween post is out of the way it’s time to start thinking about Christmas, right?

Time to wrap some Christmas gifts… maybe put up the tree…

Even finally get it lit.

The ornaments would come a lot later for some reason but we were certainly prepared.

Halloween

Yes, nothing makes it glaringingly more obvious that I’m behind on picture posting than putting a random Halloween post in the middle of nowhere on the calendar.

Well, it’s here anyway.

Redflare’s camera was still out of commission at this time, so we didn’t get as many pictures as we’d normally take for the holiday.

TJ did get a nice close up of himself in his Batman mask though.

Meanwhile, I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay.

Superman went as Black Panther, Little Miss was Robin Hood, while Newbie was a fancy cat riding a unicorn and Thunderer was a fancy cat.

We clearly guide but don’t force much for the holiday, that’s for sure.

Yes, by the way, TJ assembled that Batman costume by himself. Batman t-shirt, black jeans, that sort of thing. Didn’t want to go for the whole muscle costume off the rack thing. I think it served him quite well.

They had a lot of fun, and scored a good amount of candy.

Grandma’s First Birthday Gift

What do you get your mother as a first birthday present ever?

A photo catchup book.

Redflare helped pick out and arrange the pictures to help catch up on 35 years of lost moments and pictures. A heavy task.

I think the tears of joy show that it was well received. 😉
