The girls from our table.

There once was a widow, who lived in a small hut. One day a pinecone dropped on the floor and it took root. Her children were excited that they would have a tree for Christmas. All summer long they made plans on how they would decorate the tree. They were very poor, so poor that they did not have anything to decorate the tree with. The widow went to bed on Christmas Eve knowing that the tree would not be decorated. Early on Christmas morning, the woman was awakened by her children. "Mother, mother wake up and see the tree it is beautiful!" The mother arose and saw that during the night a spider had spun a web around the tree. The youngest child opened the window to the first light of Christmas Day. As the shafts of the sun crept along the floor, it touched one of the threads of the spider web and instantly the web was changed into gold and silver. And from that day forward the widow never wanted for anything.

I am so glad I have most of my Christmas stuff done because the last two days Chase has barely been out of my lap. We just opened an early Christmas gift for him to hopefully keep him busy (a Baby Faith DVD).

The beach near Arromanches. You can still see where the Mulberry Harbor and the bridge they made to send supplies to the troops were.
One of the German artillery bunkers.
There were a lot of bomb craters still there.

This was taken earlier this week. I would say he is walking (and falling) about 75% of the time. I went to the store this afternoon and was letting him walk around and realized I need to start working on "Come to mommy." Two times of getting out of line to go grab him for him to scream in my hands made that evident. Sorry for my super long yeeeeaaaahhhh in the video. Very annoying!

There was a cardboard box maze there that he loved! When 4 and 5 year olds would go in I was listen for crying but he never did and before long he would come out and go back in again!
