Yes, Virginia...

it is an Ipod. :-)

Ali likes the Rudolph card that I made for her.

We wanted to get a photo of Dixie, our foster dog Frederick, and the in-laws' dog Sparky. Here's Ali trying to wrangle the dogs into position. (P.S. It didn't work!)

The obligatory annual "family in front of the tree" photo:

Later in the day, we went to my SIL & BIL's for Christmas dinner. Here's Ali opening presents with her cousin, Katie.

Another annual tradition... the Thompson family portrait. (Including dogs!)

Merry Christmas!

Hi Lisa... you probably don't remember me, but we were on the Sept98Mom's mailing list way back when we were pregnant with our 10 year olds. :) I found your blog when I came across an old website for the mailing list. It's so neat to see Alison so grown up now!! How times have changed. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! :)

Lisa...Jacob is great, and has since been joined by a 6-year old sister! :) I can hardly believe it's been so long! I would love to send you a blog invite, but need an email address to do it. Where should I send the invite? :) Happy New Year to you and yours!
