We’re winding down our look at Nyan’s holiday visit to Iowa. Beyond the big events like Christmas Day, a road trip to Chicago and playing in the snow, Nyan’s time at Grandma and Grandpa’s was chock full of smaller but just-as-fun moments. Here are many of them, starting with a random selection of shots:
Here’s a quick video of the boy getting in the holiday spirit:
In the run-up to Christmas day, Nyan spent a fair amount of time “rearranging” and inspecting all the presents. Especially those with his name on them.
He helped Grandma bake cookies. Helped eat them too.
In the spirit of the season, Nyan one day handed Daddy a present he had gotten for him. It was…a tube of lip balm. But the thought was lovely!
Little-known fact: Grandma and Grandpa’s staircase is actually the tallest mountain in the world, and our boy scaled it:
A few more random shots:
Nyan helped Grandpa assemble a model train to run around the base of the Christmas tree, and hang ornaments on the tree too:
He and Grandpa also spent some time working on the train layout in the basement, as they always do.
It wasn’t corn on the cob season, but Nyan requested some, and Grandpa found some for him. It was… not as good as fresh corn in August. But Nyan didn’t seem to mind.

Last but not least: a bouncing Nyan, just bouncing.
