I know this is a bit overdue, but Merry (Late) Christmas! I'm still trying to get everything up to date but things have been a bit crazy lately and it seems like every time I blink another week has slipped by.
Mark and I both had Christmas off this year, so rather than run around like crazy we decided to stay home, relax, and enjoy the holiday in our house with the dogs. We set up my Lego train around the bottom of the tree; it drove Bacon nuts!
I had seen pictures of those Air Swimmer helium fish balloon things and thought they were pretty crazy if they worked the way I thought they might. Mark surprised me with two of them! I got a shark AND a clownfish.
Mark also surprised me with not one, but TWO Cambridge satchels. They're really nice British leather satchels that come in lots of different colors and sizes, but they're hard to find in the US. He was sneaky with the second one...I was on the couch, watching the part in A Christmas Story where the father points out the secret present hiding behind the desk, when Mark snuck up behind me with the last box. Sneaky sneaky!
