All the grandkids on the Folkman side got a pretty amazing present. My parents made some powerpoints of some of our favorite books from our childhood, for our kids to have. Grandma & Grandpa do the narration, so Emma can have a book read to her anytime of day! She loves it.
This one is "The Little Father", and Emma listens to it at least 3 times a day. When she starts it up, Henry always hears Grandpa's voice and rushes over to see. It's really cute.
(Currently, the other book "Where the Wild Things Are" isn't working, but we'll get it fixed soon.)
On New Year's Day, we spent a chunk of time playing at the Selfs, while Daddy was out playing paintball with all the boys. They have some really great hammock chairs hanging in their front room, and as you can see, Emma & Henry had quite a bit of fun playing in them.

We had tried to get to the Botanical Gardens many times this season and couldn't ever get there. So, we finally went over on New Years eve to see all the Christmas lights. It was beautiful and not too crowded. Every year the lights get more and more amazing. Lots of beautiful displays. We really enjoyed it.
After the gardens, we spent the evening playing games with both sets of Grandparents & Uncle Michael at our place. We spent a brief stint in the Overlake Urgent Care to take care of a burned hand on Henry (he put his hand on the fireplace glass before we could stop him). It was so sad, but they took care of him quickly and then he crashed for the evening so the parents could play.
It was a great year! I'm sad to see it go, but excited for all the adventures that 2011 will bring.
