Recap: Christmas in Indiana
WHAT: Personal   |   WHEN: January 15, 2012   |   WHERE: Princeton, Indiana
Like seemingly everything in my life these days, this post is running is just a tad late. As a friend told e not too long ago, it's amazing how one little piece of humanity (a baby) can require so much stuff and disrupt your own humanity. There. I listed my excuse. Now, let's move on.

Kylie and I and Saige went to Indiana to visit Kylie's family for Saige's first Christmas.  As you might imagine, Saige got no attention from anyone back home at all. None. [grin] Actually, I think as long as we bring her, Kylie and I's presence is optional these days. I kid, I kid. We had a wonderful time watching our little girl experience the wonderment and magic of what to everyone else was Christmas. To Saige, it was just another day... except with wrapping paper and bows!  But it was special to us nonetheless.  In fact, Kylie and I kinda joked that we kinda felt a teeny bit guilty for not having gotten Saige anything other than a first ornament for her first Christmas. Then we laughed and blew it off knowing the grandparents and the rest of the family would take care of that. And they did. Hugely.   

Such a great time just to relax and hang out with such wonderful people.  Here's a few images from our visit.



Saige's newest talent, blowing raspberries, was hilarious... except at the dinner table.  In fact, my father in law Garry and I got "excused" from the kitchen one night for encouraging Saige by laughing.



Love those eyes.



The in-laws: Bryce, Tina, Saige, Kylie & Garry.






[The BIL] Bryce and his dog Phyllis.  Somebody wants a kiss... and somebody doesn't.




Christmas day!  Saige got in a little exercise with "Grandfather Garry" before show time with the presents.




As expected, Saige was all about the paper, and especially the bows. The gifts? Ehhh... not so much.








Bryce gets a little testy when I don't give him photo credit, so here it is.  He took these next two.



Saige's first camera!  Won't be long 'til I've got myself a cheap 2nd shooter.



While we were in Indiana, Bryce, Garry and I took a little trip to New Harmony, IN.  It was founded as an experimental Utopian society in the late 1800s.  The Utopian part didn't last, but the historic, cool little town did.  

The next three images were from a roadside find on the way there.





The whole town had this kinda feel to it.





The town's been partially flooded a couple times, and the water was a little high in some spots the day we were there.  Bad for the residents. Good for photos.






Bryce and Garry looking "normal" on a bench.




Kylie and I stopped over to Nana's one day for a little visit. Nana is Saige's great grandmother.
