I think I failed to show our awesome tree. Becky and the girls made the topper, which is a dual representation of Yuletide wonder and guilt. Many of the ornaments were also created by small hands. You can really sense their anger.

Grease? I'll give you GREASE!

This is the face Lucy makes when nobody seems to care about previous posts that involve her.

These are two girls getting all boozed up for a day on the slopes.
This is story time. Nora is not normally involved, as she eats books.

You'll note that her front tooth has not fallen out, but merely turned a pleasant shade of grey. "Pleasant Shade of Grey"... is that one by the Mommas and the Papas?

The Fruit of Sue's Loins

Last week, from Tuesday to Thanksgiving Thursday, Terry and Sue Thorne and their descendants descended on the Great Wolf Lodge, a hotel with a water park and an arcade and Magiquest and what-not.

You'll note that our children are the more attractive ones. A two year comparison can be made here.

Lucy, Samantha, and Zoe Ralston enjoyed free, late-night HBO episodes of My Little Pony.

This is a photo featuring Grandpa Terry's gut, his wife, and his immediate offspring.

Chrissy enjoyed screaming at the babies. She didn't scream anything coherent. Just horrid, guttural screams that seemed to last for hours.

I believe Lucy is contemplating the acquisition of Kim's wallet.

That look from the tall, bald one may not be mere goofiness. I may have been losing it a bit due to the fact that I was unable to participate in any of the water-oriented fun due to a relatively fresh pacemaker incision. Lucy is either embarrassed, or spreading snot up to her forehead.
