Merry Christmas

OK, ok, I know I such a slacker when it comes to blogging lately. Don't worry, I've been chastised and I'm looking to mend my ways, but I can't promise anything - whatever time I do find on my hands I usually spend sitting on my rear end vegging out on TV or reading a book (or solving the Rubik Cube, a new favorite pastime) - I gotta have a little down time to myself, ya know? I know you do. And I know you won't hold it against me.

And just so you know, I was totally prepared to blog about the few Christmas-y things that we've been doing around here, but I can't seem to locate my card reader, so I can't upload the pictures off my camera. It has one of those annoying SD cards that DON'T work in my 5-in-1 card reader on my laptop, of course. And to make matters worse, we also can't find the battery charger for the camera (which, of course, doesn't take any old regular battery), so I can't even take more pictures that I can't upload.

So since you can't see the pictures or videos, I'm not going to blog about it....yet. There's really no point, is there? I know you want to SEE what we're doing instead of just using your imaginations, right? Right, thank you.

But I will say that we're doing good, keeping busy. We're almost ready to plant grass in our backyard - Cameron's been working on that FOREVER and it's looking fabulous (before and after pics to come - darn camera!). I'm enjoying my 2 week break from school, though I need to get planning next week so that I'm not so stressed once school starts up again. The kids have been enjoying their break, too, though we've been making them work at home - it's good for them, builds character.

And I will share my favorite moment from this week (not counting all the ooohs, aaahs, thank you thank yous, and general Christmas excitement that just can't be heat). We were eating lunch the other day - it was corn dogs (see, I was thinking and actually bought lunch foods - most of us usually eat school lunch), which I know Juliana has had before. But she took her first bite and looked up at me with complete amazement and happiness on her face and said:

"There's a hot dog in it!!"

Aah, the joys of a 2 yr old.
