after a few hours at the after-hours pediatrician (yep, another double ear infection), we finally made it to my parents’ house for christmas dinner. we had a wonderful time and the boys turned on the charm. alex even mastered saying happy christmas! well, it came out more like, happy caca!—still adorable, albeit a very different meaning.
both sets of grandparents totally spoiled the boys this year—enough blocks to fill a room! a remote-controlled helicopter! tractors! trucks! cars! a rocking horse! and a radio flyer red wagon! wow! it’s going to be tough for santa to top that next year. speaking of next year, i can’t tell you how excited i am that we’ll be celebrating in a house. with a fireplace. that means a chimney, people! for santa! let the countdown begin!
