Christmas in the U.P.

The Family Tighe flew to the wilds of the Upper Peninsula for Christmas this year. Present were Grandma and Grandpa Tighe, Uncle Dave, Aunt Lory, Aunt Colleen & Uncle Bill, Uncle Lorne & Aunt Patty, and Uncle Bobby & Aunt Judy. We got to see Uncle Danny and Aunt Julie in Rockford for New Year's, too.

Dominic gets a bath at Grandpa and Grandma's house.

Dominic (4 months) and his cousin Charlie (about 16 months). Dominic had just been sledding with his Dad, hence the rosy cheeks!
Dominic poses with the Rockford cousins, etc. while ushering in 2009. Left to right: Charlie, Ella, Paul, Dominic, Eva, and Maggie.

Dominic finally met his cousin Bennett, who's about 7 weeks older and a whole lot bigger. They played together several times, and at times seemed to actually perceive that the other was there!

The collection of gifts for the gift exchange. Of course the No.1 son had the biggest one in the middle, which we later found out held a mini-remote control helicopter!

Aunt Lory held and watched Dominic a lot, especially when his Mom and Dad needed it most!
