End of Year Photos

Another sad day at the Straka household as yet another vehicle bites the dust.  Motory got traded in (for Sharkey, who we don't have yet). 

Hugs all around.


I'll miss you Motory.  (Sniff, sniff).


Good bye, Motory!








Christmas is coming!

Everyone, even Chivie, helps bring in the tree.


Decorating with Christmas carols and eggnog.


Nic and Nat made small trees for their rooms. 







Nic reads to his little sister in a box.  They have refreshments near by. 










A visit with the Hillaires



We went to dinner at Kathy and Robert's house.  Emily came with us and the kids had a blast.  Here are Nic, Nat, Em and Adam.


Here they are again at the dinner table.

Christmas Eve



Every 24th of December, the babies get to go to the office with Daddy.  Nat has two heavy bags and they also took along some guys.


Nat in a box.  These kids LOVE boxes. 


Boobie came over and the kids got to open a present on Christmas Eve.

Grandma, I LOVE my new robe you made me!  I look just like Princess Leia!



I LOVE my robe, too.  Thanks, Grandma!  (By the way, he wears it everywhere.  To the mall, to Safeway, etc.)
