We came back to the house and the bows came out...
that's bows like in bow and arrow...
only there were no arrows, but darts instead.
UJ and Thalia bought them for each of the big boys:
Emerson, Benjamin, and William
They were the hit of Christmas!
As you may be able to tell from these pictures,
the bow and darts were also a hit with the grown men in the group!
Unfortunately, Mr. Walter did NOT get a bow.
I think he was OK with it.
We were getting ready for our dinner...
Ham, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, broccoli, squash casserole,
hot rolls...followed by a pumpkin and 2 chocolate pies.
I can't remember who was aiming at Joshua's head...
I don't think they hit the cup...
I think Donnie is in 'pie mode'...
Uh-oh... you better watch out, Joshua.
Gabe has the bow!
I think I would call this "Double Trouble."
Here comes Donnie with...it must be William's bow. William looks like he wants it back.
I wonder if Donnie stole it from poor little William!
The ages listed on this bow was 8 yrs. old +.
William is 4...and he didn't have any trouble at all!
Walt felt like he needed to get the heck out of Dodge!
Ahhh...William sure did love Blu!
I think he needs a dog.
Walt may not have been able to maneuver the bow, but he did like playing with the darts!
In another room, there was a chess game going on between Emerson and Benjamin.
I can't remember if Benjamin already knew how to play???
Emerson is in a chess club after his school..one day a week.
This must be the 'after dinner and dessert' photo.
Looks a bit...relaxed!
Typical Donnie picture!!
Typical Walt picture...
Not a typical William picture!
A sometimes typical Thalia picture...
and a sometimes typical Joshua picture...
and a typical Gabe picture!
What a fun day this was!
Merry Christmas, 2016
