Daddy's Gonna Stop Typing For A Couple Of Days

We flew to my mom's [she of the handknit iPhone and hand-crocheted blanket fame] in Salt Lake City Monday. Our non-stop flight helped miss all the weather. K2 screamed for 45 min and slept for 3 hrs, but the bar is always lower on the kid-filled SLC routes. The Kid, meanwhile was transfixed by the new XO laptop her grandpa gave her. It's pretty incredible, and this does seem a better age for it [4.5] than last year, when I wanted to get her one. If I think about it for two seconds, I'm blown away at how flying coach is now like picnicking, where you have to bring all the food for everyone.

Anyway, I'll be taking a break to celebrate on these, the third and fourth days of Hannukah. [Someone's got to do it; just being from New York City puts us in the 95th% percentile for Jewiest people in Utah right now.] I hope all of you have a wonderful, peaceful, safe, and stress-free holiday season.

Merry Chrismahanukwanzukah to you and yours, Greg! Thanks, as always, for doin' what you're doin' with this blog. :)

Safe travels, and happy holidays.

Feel free to post about great ways for 4.5 year olds to use the XO... Roo's grandpa got her one, too!

Happy Festivus to all!

Can't wait to see what new crocheted prezzies Santa brings this Christmas! I love how Utahans are in general such wholehearted crafters - must be that Future Homemakers club (or whatever that group is for girls that parallels Future Farmers).

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
