It was an even crazier day than usual at our house, with my sister-in-law Linda, her children Lydia and Emy Lou, and our wayward boy Mack in attendance, besides the 7 Bedells. Above, Mary, Ben and Emy Lou amidst the ocean of presents.
Emy Lou looks lost amidst the bounty.
Clara, Mary and Ben.
Thomas and Robert clowning.
Thomas with his new happy pants.
Lydia feeds a cookie to our carb-loving cat Hermione.
Ben tries out his snuggy, hat and gloves.
The aftermath: Ben unwinds with one of his new Wii games, looking like he looks so often.
