This year’s family photo. That actually has all of us in it. Wanted to get a photo of us running from Sue, but this was all the kids had patience for. Plus, it was a holiday week so the museum was freakin’ packed. We’re used to being the only five people in the place and having our run of it, not in a sea of hundreds.
Had a low-key Christmas. Hubby got me a really cool recipe box, all personalized and such. Kids got a rockin’ new go-kart, it’s bigger than the old one, so they can use it for forever. So we have one the younger three can use, and one the 6+yo set can use. Was so funny on Christmas (or the day after?) when hubby took it for a spin around the neighborhood. He was pedaling down the street, steering with one hand, sipping his coffee with the other. An SUV followed him down the street for a few houses before ours. Their mouths were agape, and they both rubber-necked as they drove past us. It was so amusing. The kids love it. Grandma got them a bucket as well, so they can shovel the driveway for us, and hubby has a local fabricator making chains for us.
