Christmas countdown, day 11

Number eleven might take the cake for most unique surprise of advent. Now chilling (literally) in the yard, I'm going to bet we're the only house in the neighborhood (township?) that's got one of these babies.

The kids actually got a little put off that Ben was staked outside. They were hoping he'd stay inside, I think.

And, yes, his name is Ben ... at Trace's insistence. There was a naming discussion among the giftees after opening the package, but Trace (after hugging the lighted Steeler) was most adamant the player be named Ben.

Please refer to this day's gift as the "one" from Buzz. He is so proud he contributed to the countdown! MawMaw
