The twelve days of Christmas

Opening presents with Grandma Linda
Uncle Greg puts on socks

As promised, here are some of the photos from Uncle Greg & Grandma Linda's Christmas visit earlier in the week. I'd bet that Fern has the impression that Christmas lasts pretty much forever... she's been surrounded by carols, cards, and gifts for quite a while now. (We were especially hard put to find a spot for the partridge and that darn pear tree.)

Not that she minds, of course. As you can see, she's still pretty fond of paper, although some of the advanced wrapping baffles her; here she is with Grandma Linda helping to unravel one!

Also pictured is Uncle Greg learning some baby lessons. Putting on socks is actually quite an advanced skill... note how he expertly distracts her with a rattle so she doesn't notice that her sock is being replaced.
