just got back...
from our three whirlwind days of fun & family in NYC, preceded by a day & a half of Christmas family fun here at home.
The kids got a ridiculous number of new toys. I got On Beauty by Zadie Smith, Watchmen (Absolute Edition) by Alan Moore (yes, I am a geek!), and an incredible new winter dress coat from my MIL. We ate too much, drank just enough, sat around and played games (UNO! Monopoly!) and let the kids watch a smidge more tv than we would have normally (LD gave the Potato the second DVD box set of Peewee's Playhouse for Christmas). Landisdad & I even got to see two movies together in the space of four days, and I think the last time that happened was in 1998.
Now, it's back to work for two days (for me--LD and the kids are off all week), and then a four day weekend. I could get used to this. I'm really too tired to write much, so here are some gratuitous kid pictures:
The Bee, opening a gift on Christmas Eve, at my brother's house.
The Potato, reading one of his new books on Christmas morning.
The kids in their new matching jammies from Grandma (unfortunately, I did not get a better quality picture).
And one gratuitous cute thing my kid said:
(on eating his grandmother's homemade chocolate mousse for the first time on Christmas night)
"I like this! my chocolate moo!"
LD and I cracked up over that one, and repeated it over and over again for days.
