1715

A lot has happened since my last real post.

I’m back at work today, which is eh, after a nice long vacation. My vacation started Christmas Eve and went till today, and I didn’t really do any real posting while I was gone.
So, our Christmas went well, we got some cool stuff. I did post some Pictures which pretty much tell the story of our Christmas. The funniest bit was when Landon walked right by his Santa gifts on Christmas morning, of which I already posted the video. He also was cute in that he would open a present, and if it wasn’t something he was quickly enamored with (like the books) he would bat his pretty blue eyes and hold his hands out and very innocently say “More presents?”

On the 29th of December we took a little mini-vacation up to see the snow. We put a DVD player in the van, and Landon watched movies and napped when we went up to Flagstaff. The place was covered in snow, it was awesome. I loaded Landon up in the and we walked around old downtown. It was really awesome to see people just living with the snow. Landon was pretty good, but it was a lot for him to take in.
The next morning we got up early and went up to the Grand Canyon. It was so pretty there! We also stopped at Bedrock. Bobby and I saw it and felt silly because we kind of wanted to stop. We had a good time! The way home was less fun, as Landon woke up a total grouch from his nap and kept begging to be let out of the car. It was about a 3-4 hour drive home, so I understand why he was upset, but there just wasn’t much we could do about it.
Here are the Pictures of our snow trip:

We hosted a party on New Years eve that went past midnight. We ended up playing a ton of Rock Band, and it was very fun. We had a board game night at Laura’s on Friday where we played Formula D, which was awesome. I really enjoyed the game and I was impressed that you can have up to 10 players!
We had friends over for dinner a couple of nights during the vacation, and bobby used his precision cooking techniques for some excellent meals. Bobby spoils me rotten by cooking food for me. His food is always excellent. Tonight is Pizza night, and Bobby’s GF pizza is better than most pizzas I can buy.

Saturday brought more Rock Band, and Sunday night we watched the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Next Doctor” which was very good.

And I need to finish getting caught up on my 156 work emails that came in while I was on vacation!

    Those photos are great! It’s been years since I’ve been to the canyon, I don’t even remember really. I have a photo of me at about 7 years old.
    Keep those pictures for him, he’ll have proof!
