"Don't touch this", 90/365


A retired gentleman shared his train set up with my son the other day and boy was he enthralled.  As you can see, a lot of work has gone into creating this. (very hard to bet a good photo as it was very dim in the room)


My son loves trains and it was quite a challenge for him to obey and not touch.  Overall, he did quite well.  Let's just hope he doesn't expect one just like it on Christmas morning.  


Here's to a wonderful holiday to all my blogging friends and a Happy New Year -  May all your dreams and desires not be out of reach!

Elisabeth, Justine, George & Rosie. I was a bit embarrassed posting the photos of the train setup as they were a bit blurry - but this gentlemen was so proud and my 3 year old so excited... Thank you for the holiday well wishes. Merry Christmas to you all!

I'm late with this but it's still 2010, at least: the best of this holiday season to you and yours, Margaret. I LOVE the symbolism of this post...and that dear, little hand ready to grab hold onto life.

Ginnie - It was SO hard for him not to touch... And he is a bold piece, really embraces life. He makes us laugh all the time. (not to mention, wears us out!)
