Happy new year!

I'm all ready for the end of 2012 -- I've got champagne in one hand and a train in another -- but I wanted to take a moment to wish you continued good times in 2013.

My new year's resolution is to get my taxes done early this year, and to eat more macaroni and cheese. I'm pretty sure both of those are the secret of happiness.

Christmas time again!

Sooooooo many presents!

Here's Pop-Pop Shane trying to figure out how my new Thomas the Tank Engine towel works. I kept telling him you need to take a bath first. Don't worry, he knew how to play with my new cars better.

And here's Pop-Pop Doyle and Aunt Olga helping me unwrap my new Skarloey train. I can't believe neither of them knew who Skarloey was. They clearly aren't watching enough Thomas when I'm gone.

And Grandmom Linda and Aunt Pat found even more presents for me to open! We should do this Christmas thing more often.

Hope everybody had a great one. I know I already sent out one Christmas card, but in case you didn't get it, here's my second season's greetings for you:

More trains than you can imagine

Pop-Pop took the whole family to some crazy train heaven called Northlandz yesterday, and you would not believe how many little trains they had there.

Seriously, it took us almost two hours to walk through the whole thing. Of course, after those two hours, I still wanted to see more trains, but Mom and Dad wanted to go eat instead. Amateurs.

Pop-Pop was as excited as I was to see the trains. Do you know how many bridges they had for the box cars to go over? A BAZILLION.

We took cousin Tommy along too. He doesn't full appreciate how cool trains are yet, but he will soon. I'll make sure of that.

 Dad's note: Seriously, after two hours Jonathan was upset that there weren't more trains to see. Two hours. And that still wasn't enough.

'twas the weekend before Christmas

Ollie and I really liked hearing Pop's Christmas stories, but they coulda used more trains.

Identity crisis

No matter how many times I tell Dad my name, he still asks me more questions.

Christmas + trains = ohmigawd

You're never going to guess what Pop-Pop had at his house this weekend.


I don't know how much more excitement I can take this holiday season.

School portraits

We got to draw our own portraits to decorate daycare today, and I think mine turned out perfect.

Of course, Mom and Dad wanted a "formal" picture, so we got one of those too. Honestly, I don't think it's as cute as the snowman one, but it'll do.

Fire truckin'

Here I am wearing my fire truck pajamas while reading a fire truck book and playing with my fire truck. Why? Because fire trucks, that's why.

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

Christmas lights inside the house are THE MOST EXCITING THING EVER!!!

Party time

This is pretty much all Dad and I did today.

That's a pretty good way to spent his birthday, I think.

Build it bigger

Pop-Pop Shane taught me how to build really, really big Lego towers this weekend. The toughest part on this one was getting the camera up top to take this picture. 

Just for perspective, here's me putting the final touches on that tower:

The trick is to go slowly.
