After Philly, we all took the train down to Baltimore to see the Coleman side of the family. There Reeve was even busier, as he got to play with his two cousins Charlotte and Susan. Three kids under the age of six equal a whole lot of energy! So here’s the recap:

First Reeve had to inspect the tree and gifts:

Next, Reeve discovered that twirling on a musical Elmo mat was a thrill.

Charlotte decided to join the fun:

Soon the kids were digging into the gifts:

Reeve decided he didn’t care for Charlotte’s recorder skills:

Next there was a rare opportunity for a group shot of Rob and his sister Karen with the kids:

The play kept on each day, especially when Reeve got a look at Charlotte and Susan’s play room:

Charlotte showed Reeve how to drive a car:

Embarking on our Annual East Coast Holiday Tour, we went to Philadelphia for four days to spend Christmas with the Manley grandparents. Reeve was very busy the whole time, and engaged in many activities, including playing piano:

. . . climbing stairs . . .

. . . conquering chairs . . .

. . . meeting dogs . . .

. . . climbing stairs at other people’s houses . . .

. . . listening to Kathleen Battle’s christmas cd . . .

. . . opening gifts . . .

. . . eating his favorite snack of blueberries and raspberries . . .

. . . and learning how toy trains work.
