The day after Christmas, Katie and Dan’s family headed over to Frankfort to hang out (and to have a post-Christmas dinner). On arriving, we all ended up congregating and hanging out in the kitchen for a long while.

Christmas Day in Indianapolis and Frankfort

In back, that would be Sebastian putting on his Darth Vader helmet. I wish I had some video/audio to share, because in addition to changing his voice… it also spits out Vader quotes. Which, coming from his short frame, was actually just hilarious.

After traveling from Chicago to Atlanta to Chicago to Frankfort to Indianapolis and back to Frankfort… we were ready for a bit of a break.
