Christmas 2011

The Hensons had a whirlwind Christmas again this year. We celebrated with our immediate family on Christmas eve morning, drove to Gorman and celebrated with Shari’s family that night, then celebrated again with Shari’s extended family on Christmas morning. Finally, we drove up to the panhandle and celebrated Christmas with Shari’s dad. That’s a lot of celebrating. As exhausting as Christmas can be, it is so good to spend time with family and get away for a few days. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. We can’t wait to do it again in 2012.

Fort Worth Train Show

Please enjoy this video of our trip to the Fort Worth Model Train Show. It was a Saturday morning, I grabbed the paper and started reading through a few articles when I stumbled across this event happening that weekend. I said, “I know what we’re doing today!” and we hopped in the car and went. Those are the best kinds of trips. Not planned, not expected, but greatly enjoyed.

You’ll notice in this video that when Caleb is playing with the “Thomas and Friends” train set, he is making motor sounds with his lips. He must have done that for at least 30 minutes straight while he ran around the table and played with the other kids. This is one of those qualities that Shari designates as “all boy”.

Grandparents take note, the “Thomas and Friends” train track was the most fun he has had in a long time and I plan on building him a table for the Oval track we bought him that day. Expansion sets are welcome.
