Chrismas has been a blur…

Christmas has been a blur of presents, visits, meals and walks. And we have more blurry photos in Robert’s section.

Christmas trains…
last update: 12/24 @ 22:19
We had company for our trip the US Botanic Gardens for this year’s Christmas train display. Grandpoppa and SMom are up for Christmas. And the weather (while it started a little cloudy — rainy for their trip up) has been spectacularly nice. We all enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor train displays.

Big Pizza
last update: 12/19 @ 22:01

It was 72 degrees yesterday. December 18th. My compressed day home with Robert. We went to the zoo. We saw several animals, and in general were pretty subdued since we were both fighting colds. However, once Robert got a glance of the giant pizza (made out of gymnast type mats) in the children’s farm part of the zoo he was out of the buggy and sliding down the cheese wedge in an instant. Though in this picture he’s jumping off an onion slice. Very fun.

The tradition continues..

O.K., so I don’t think my brother or I EVER took a picture with a Santa Claus growing up but for some reason, 2 years ago I was posessed by the idea that I should take one with Robert. (Getting punchy after so much maternity leave I guess.) Actually, I think my first Santa Claus picture was the year before, in Atlanta, while I was horribly sick with Robert, surrounded by teenage relations all taller than myself. Suffice it to say, this year the planets aligned and Daddy, Mommy and Robert all managed to molest Santa at the same time. You may now gag. -(Where IS John Waters when you need him?) Anyway, enjoy. And Happy Channukah.

Compare with this and this.

Birthday Snuggle
last update: 12/10 @ 19:41

Robert brought his White Tiger for a birthday snuggle with me — my Birthday, not his or the tigers :).

He and Sarah got me a set of MythBusters DVDs, my folks sent a new book and Sarah’s folks and brother sent lots of CDs (gotta love Amazon’s Wish List — just have to remember to add to it…)

Tree Trimming
last update: 12/10 @ 15:03
Robert had a good time helping to trim the tree this year. He was really excited by the lights that Sarah put on the tree this morning. We’re not hanging too many ornaments, they are too big a temptation still…

One of these things…

… is not like the others.

We took a stroll down to City Hall to watch the annual Scottish Walk today. Our late fall heat wave ended last night and today was closer to normal December temperatures.

To be more specific: I guess 75 is normal for December in New Zealand, but pretty amazing for Alexandria.

Traditional Thanksgiving Baseball…
last update: 12/02 @ 14:18
We had visitors from Washington, New Jersey and Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday. We all enjoyed too much to eat but had a chance to work a bit of the meals off outside in the great weather.
