Most of Christmas Day we spent in Newberg with the Tompkins and later that day with the Smiths too. Carson and I both got an almost-two-hour nap, and if you know me well, you know that was like a gift in itself! We also had a (sort of) white Christmas! I’m trying to get a few more pics from my sis-in-law that capture the moment better.

The gift for that day was Carson’s new digital camera from Mimi and Grandpa Phil. Oh yes, you read that correctly! He got an “unbreakable” digital camera, complete with a little screen that shows the pictures after you take them. It is a hoot. Someone asked how many megapixels it has, and I think it’s like .3. There will soon be a post spotlighting the pictures from his camera (because it comes with a USB cable so you can upload the pics) and you’ll see our aspiring photographer’s work.
