On the 5th and 6th day of Christmas Break...

The Christmas celebrations spilled over from Monday afternoon through Wednesday evening.  Yesterday we spent the day at Rob's mom's opening more gifts and eating more food and listening to more all-three-talking-at-once excitement.  A snowstorm was expected in early evening so we headed out by 5:30 and Jorge was asleep before we left the driveway.  August didn't make it to the highway.  We carried Jorge straight up to bed at 6 and he slept straight through until 7 this morning.  Completely unrelated as far as he's concerned, but we're having a lovely morning this morning.


 August didn't agree to stay asleep after the car parked, and instead he crashed around the house for another two hours before demanding "Mommy, come snuggle with me".  As if anyone could resist that.

Katie had been promised a movie night watching her new Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings DVD.  We curled up on the couch and she was shaking with excitement.  SHAKING.  And crying, laughing, crying, shaking with glee, shaking with fear....that girl is a leaf.  She declared it the very best movie ever made in the history of movies.  (She just read that and laughed.  Mooooooom.)

Mom and dad were perhaps a little less in awe, but a movie date night is a movie date night, G or otherwise.

Today we're hoping to use some of our new cookbooks and cooking utensils to make some fun treats, once the boys are done playing in the snow.  18" and still coming.  Rob got me an eye-fi card for the camera which automatically uploads pictures from the camera to the eye-fi website and my desktop computer as well as our flickr account.  So far it seems to be working really well; I love having my pictures waiting for me on the laptop within minutes of taking the shots.  If you were sick of photos before, you should probably just stop hoping for real content now.
