Merry Belated Christmas!

I've been meaning to do our Christmas post since, well, Christmas, but haven't felt inspired since we didn't get many good pictures of Dash.  He is still in a "no pictures" phase, though occasionally he'll bless us with a good "cheese!"

Regardless of the lack of photos, we had a wonderful Christmas!  We were able to go out to Minnesota again to visit my family, and it was great!  Lisa was able to spend quite a bit of time in Bemidji with us, and we saw a lot of my other sister Terri and her family, who live in Bemidji, too!  So it was a family-filled, fun-filled week!

Dashiell, Auntie Lisa and cousin Idgie

Uncle Glen and Rick took Dashiell on his first snowmobile ride!  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of him on the snowmobile, but I did get one of him waiting patiently before the ride:

We also paid a visit to the Headwater's Science Center during the week, which D loved!  He especially loved this display:

It showed the "Bernoulli Effect" (I think that's what it was) and Dash loved the air coming out of the tube that was keeping the ball in the air.  He kept going back to this display and was so sad when other kids wanted to try it.

Christmas itself was lovely.  My family does a Christmas Eve celebration, which works in our favor since we usually try to fly back to Massachusetts on Christmas day.  When we were opening presents, Dashiell thought it was hilarious that auntie Lisa was wearing a bow on her head, so he had to wear one too!

Dash is funny about opening presents.  He was excited to open ONE present.  Then he was excited to play with that one present, and had no interest in any of the other presents he had left to open.  We had to convince him that other presents were going to be fun, too.  Silly boy! 

I'll try to post more soon - lots more to talk about, just not enough time!
