The Good Life

This is the aftermath of our Christmas morning. The point when all of the presents have been opened and the exploration of said presents begins. Someone gave the kids these “confetti poppers” and of course – they popped them! I happened to snap this one fired by my youngest, Matthew, aimed in my general direction.
This one, fired by my eldest, Anthony, while Matthew ducked, landed right on Jessica’s head. On the right edge of this shot (cut off except for his hand and hat), my middle son, Timmy, is ready to defend his lovely fiancĂ©e with a volley of his own!

Anthony returned to Santa Monica because he had to work yesterday, and Matthew left this morning for Lake Tahoe to go snowboarding with his friends for the day. Timmy is still recovering from his injuries sustained in the wreck he was in on the 4th; Jessica is by his side. All is well. It’s a good life!

There's something odd about a "Timmy" with a fiancé. Great family shots, though. Nothing says 'Good times' like those poppers.

I had one of those little invisible strings that recoil when someone reaches for the 'fiver' attached to it.

Here via Michele, my friend.

Looks and sounds like a great time was had by all. Great action shots!

Easy to see that Christmas at your house was a lot of fun.
And that all of you enjoyed the moments. Bet your house is pretty quiet now though.
