A family picture from the Bedard Controls Christmas Party.


Taylor had an Orchestra Concert.

Finally, Anne Marie can reach to put the Angel on the tree.


Christmas Day!
Going through the stockings
Digging under the tree
Abby wants to see what Taylor got.
The best present for last, what is it, the Chocolate phone? 

An MP3 player?

Angela will find out soon.
So will Anne Marie.


It's an MP3 player!


This is how Anne Marie will look for the next two weeks as she takes videos of Christmas Dinner and our trip to Canada.

Below she is interviewing Elise

Taylor is happy someone has an open connection to the internet by grandma's house.

Liam wanted to learn to knit.  He did really well.
Angela was showing him the ropes.
Grandpa Jack came by to inspect because he is also a talented knitter.
