I'll be home for Christmas...if only in my dreams....

I'll Be Home For Christmas 1/10

 For the first time in her life, Claire's brother Sebastian will be away at Christmas time. He had tickets to come home, but there is a missing baby dragon, and he was needed for the search. Claire understands, and even agrees with the decision. She's really glad for Skype, though!

The little ones find the whole Skype thing a little intimidating at first, but they quickly get used to it once they see Sebastian on the screen. The Pukifee have made him a picture for Christmas.

Emily made him something out of Lego. It has a diving board and a desk and chair in the same room, which she seems to feel he'd appreciate. :)

Sebastian can even continue the tradition of reading a chapter of "The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus" to everyone each night. They love it, though Samara never makes it through the whole chapter, and they get a little worried when the Awgwas come into the picture!

Even though he'll call again tomorrow, it is still a little sad to say goodbye....


...I now feel guilty for selling Sebastian (MNF Ruth)...LOL  Poor Claire!!  And everyone!


  1. What a lovely post, you really do take the best photos and have lovely props, they are just perfect for the girls :). I really like how the light is playing on them in all the photos, it so brings them all to life.
    These little laptops are so cute, aren't they! I had one sent to me as a gift from a friend in the it!

    1. Thanks! Yes, those laptops are awesome! I've seen people make really neat "screenshots" to use with them, but so far I've been able to manage by keeping the mirrored screen turned away from the camera. :D

  2. Aw, lovely story!
    Happy Holidays to you and Claire and the family!

    1. Thanks! And Happy Holidays to you and yours! Hope you are enjoying it! :D

  3. These are such lovely photos of Claire and the girls. I really adore that second photo where the girls are holding hands and trying to peek at what Claire is doing.

    I'm sure you have mentioned before but I didn't remember you used to have a MNF Ruth. Do you think you will reshell him eventually or just have him as part of the history of the orphanage?

    1. Thanks for the kind words! :) I wasn't planning to reshell Sebastian, but lately I've been missing him. So I think I will start setting aside money for him, and see how I feel in a few months.
