On the ninth day of Christmas...

We drove over to Richmond to see the rest of our family.

Brian was on call both of the last two weekends, so our family day was today. Gifts were exchanged, games were played, and a large ham (no, not Brian Blessed) was baked. We ate lots of goodies. Percivale curled up with me and we took a nap together on the couch. It was a lovely day.

I've been missing the grandcubs a lot, so getting to see them was a treat. On their side, they were thrilled to have all of us over -- especially Uncle Zach, who is a very patient reader of stories and player of games.

On the way home, we talked over what to get James for his fourth birthday, which is coming up in just under two weeks. He loves to sing and dance, so I'm thinking something musical; on the other hand, the house doesn't need more noisemakers. Hmmm.

Anna and Brian and Daniel and James will all be helping again with the Winter Rendezvous later this month. Daniel and James are old hands at this by now: it'll be their third Winter Rendezvous.
