I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
I've been so busy the last couple days; it's been a blur of family, games, puzzles, movies, toys, and repeated snow blowing.
As predicted Alan liked the punching bag the best:
He's got quite a left hook. Now maybe he'll stop ambushing his papa with his karate moves, but I'm not betting on it.
Brian was all about two things:
The white board in his room:
On his bed there he sat his stuffed animals. He's their teacher. I could watch that for hours.
The other thing he loved was the scrabble game:
That's his very first scrabble board (Yes, "HECK" was my word and, sure, it's probably not in the scrabble dictionary but it's an Utah word for sure). I've probably played a dozen games with him since Christmas morning and he's pretty good for a 6-year-old. Actually... Brian and I are about equally matched in Scrabble; he's already called me on misspellings twice. They should really have never given me a doctorate :-).
Christmas morning we had family over for brunch.
I always feel a bit like we're caving in to expectations each time we serve our guests quiche :-).
Now we're off to sled and then celebrate the last day of Hanukkah. Then New Years... This has to be the best time of year.
