Merry Christmas 2007

After leaving chocolate-chip cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for his reindeer, we awoke this morning and have watched an exuberant six-year-old unwrap far too many presents (our bad) and settle down, unsurprisingly, with one of the least expensive and uncomplicated gifts of the year. A old-fashioned wooden pop-gun — you know — with a cork on a string that goes “pop!” when you pump it.

Great fun, especially after ‘don’t be a space invader’ policies were reiterated. He’s a good boy, we didn’t even have to tell him to leave the cats alone. My personal favorite of his? The microscope.

Audrey gave me Paleoindian or Paleoarchaic?: Great Basin Human Ecology at the Pleistocene-Holocene Transition, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Vol. Two – The War Years, slide guitar for rock & blues instructional DVD and a lava lamp! Life is gooooood.

We hope you’re having a great day whether it is Christmas, Santa Claus Day, Newtonmas or just December 25.
