Planck's Place

Welcome. If you are here, then more than likely it means you were invited. What is a blog you say? Well, it's a type of website run a bit like a news letter. I can edit and add things as often as I like. So in a way it's a journal online. I created this just to share with our family and friends across the miles. Check back often and add comments when you feel so compelled. Most of the photos are of Emily, but if you look often enough, you will catch the occasional one of Tony and I.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Christmas morning this year finds us living in "excess"... As Tony looks around and says, "this just isn't right"...... There were definately a few presents for all under the tree this year! So many so that we stopped to wonder if Emily had any awareness of what she really has.

And so begins the unwrapping frenzy...

I've had my eye on this one!

All the spoils of Christmas surround her.......

Snuggling up with Daddy and taking a break from all the excitement.

Going for a stroll on her new bike in the wintery weather Christmas day.

Side saddle show off! She has all the confidence in the world with those training wheels, just wait until they come off!

One more week till Christmas!

Only one more week until good old Saint Nick comes to visit our chimney-less house..... Emily is so excited this year. Today we went to the local Mall to visit Santa! After an hour's wait in line, Emily sat on his lap and smiled just perfectly, but she wouldn't say a word to him, so who knows what she may end up with for Christmas.

The "Holiday" Program

After much debate this year, the politically correct American society has decided that we can no longer call the season "Christmas" there-fore.... It is now "The Holiday Season". WHATEVER I say!

OK After saying that, here are some photos of Emily's school "Holiday" program. Her class sang "12 days of Christmas with the entire school, ea class had a go around, and her class alone sang "Jolly old Saint Nicholas".

Proud Moma here was all a-glow as Emily appeared to be one of the most animated in the class and knew every word, which she sang so loudly you could actually hear her over the rest. (Not sure that is a good thing, but yup, THAT WAS MY KID up there!) For those of you who know my daughter, this is a huge feat! She has gone from being the most shy child to a confident, outgoing one this year. Below are some fun photos to look at........

"when I'm fast asleep"

"FIVE golden rings..............................."

"Jolly old Saint Nicholas"

"Down the Chimney broad and black, with a pack you'll creep"

Las Manitos, las manitos..........
