Here's a pic of Elfie as a Samurai warrior. He tried very hard to be pretty authentic about it, complete with making the sword sound effects found in his Civilization game. Patrick was kind to him and told him the closest he would ever get to being a Samurai would be "hari-kari." Thanks, Patrick, for encouraging your little brother. So Elfie figured out that ethnically, the most suitable thing he could be is a Teutonic Knight, but he thinks it would be too hard to learn German. I guess that's the only thing really stopping him, right?Girlie had a wonderful Christmas. Here she is playing with her dad in the snow. She loved the snow, but didn't want her dad to let go of her hand. That would be wrong. By the way, check out Rose's new sidebar pic and caption. I snapped that shot while she was climbing up the couch. Again. She loves playing with her new little people house, but her dad has taught her that the daddy character can do anything he wants. He stands on the tables and gets into all kinds of mischief, and there is nothing the mommy character can do about it. Sigh.
