Visiting Kansas City, Part 3

The next morning, with all the gifts under the tree.

Liz reveals a gift she made her dad: a fruit cake that’s been in the works for 2-3 weeks. Before now, I’ve not been that familiar with fruit cakes. This one has at least an entire bottle of Kentucky bourbon in it! To fully prepare one, a fruit cake needs to sit something like 3+ weeks.

Napoleon, who I first met… well, just about a year ago, to the day.

Jackson, getting the whole gift-unwrapping bit down.

Well, sorta.

Isabelle, taking a photograh, with a little help from her dad.

Darryl, who went upstairs during breakfast to help Paige fall asleep… falls asleep himself.

Jackson, Anne and Isabelle.

Playing with the train set. Isabelle’s all about sending the train down the ramps; Jackson’s all about terrorizing the small town.

Paige, ready for the airport.

Jackson and Isabelle, waving goodbye.
