its beginning to look a lot like...
around my home.
i can not believe it is so soon.
the kids tree.
we dont have a big one yet.
i cant wait.

gum drop people
thanks to martha's ideas in the december issue.

many a gingerbread house
i mean candy eating extravaganza
has occurred.
and one chimney devoured.

and everyday,
the pending question,
'can i open an envelope?'
yes. our advent calendar is strung across the mantle,
and holds a treasure for each day.
oh to be two again!

happy b day eduardo fastidious

we love you!

we started the 10th...ed's bday...
just right with rainbow donuts (yum)
and while he was at work ruby helped me
make this lovely trader joes cake,
which i confess i bought b/c the box was so cute.

and we celebrated later that evening
with a lovely dinner,
cake and vino
and topped it off by meeting up with some
friends after kids went to sleep.
it was a pretty good 31st.

i am pretty sure ruby lives for birthdays.
she may in fact think we are celebrating Jesus' birthday
every night she blows out the advent candles.
silly girl.
happy birthday anyhow; a couple days late big guy.
we love you lots
and think youre the absolute best dad around.
