On a whim, the other day, I bought some bathtub crayons for Graham while out with my Mom. He is so into them. Every night now, at bath time, he creates a magnum opus on our shower walls- which I then have to scrub off the next morning when I shower, but whatever- he has such a good time!
Right about the time the crayons run out, I'll be ready to stop scrubbing I think...

Graham was so shocked by the Christmas spread left by Santa that we could scarcely get him to enter our living room. Once he was in, though, it was on!! He was all of the time elated, and at times frenzied! Next year will be even crazier I am sure. The video is sideways at first, but straightens out...

Graham has been waking up supremely early here, so the other day we set him in bed with us and turned on some cartoons at about 5:15am, and what did we come across , but a Monster Truck rally. It was love at first site for Graham, who now calls Monster Trucks "bobos". I found it funny, but I have no complaints- it's completely bad language and sexual content free. I just hope that he doesn't select it as a profession.

Horse-riding cavalry was a big part of how Fort Huachuca got started way back when, so they still have an active corral on base here. Sunday morning we took Graham to see the horses and this one very friendly little donkey named Speedy. Graham took more interest in the tractors we saw. Oh well. You can't win them all. Plus, it's been hard for him to get excited since that darn Christmas Parade!! Everything else pales in comparison!

Graham enjoyed his first parade on Saturday night- the local Christmas parade. It featured many large trucks, fire engines, floats, and even goats with antler headbands on. He was so excited that Andy and I both agreed that it was worth us completely freezing every appendage off of our bodies to go. He either waved and/or pointed at every single thing in the parade.

This is a scene not seen by the Nichols in a while- snow covered mountains. We are out of town for a bit while Andy does some training and loving the cold snowy weather. Tonight snow is supposed to hit altitudes as low as 5,000ft. so Graham may just get to play in it before we leave!
