First off, we had a wonderful Christmas. Nice and quiet, just like I like it. Dakin got a lot of wonderful gifts: a pet puppy (the kind that looks like it's sleeping--it breathes even!) that Dakin named "Question Mark" and will deign to brush occasionally, some play-doh stuff, a rotating light lamp from his girlfriend in Utah, DVDs from his aunt, a mini globe, a carousel music box (he loves merry-go-rounds), beautiful pillowcases from his great-grandma, some neat projector flashlights, 2 cars and lots more. I think, though, the most exciting one is the one Nana got for him (and he doesn't even know what it is yet!!): tickets for us to see the Imagination Movers in concert, and to attend the meet-and-greet following the concert! That will be awesome...more to come on that.
Now for Volcano Nose. I don't think he's fighting off a cold because he hasn't had a fever, but boy howdy, the secretions have been non-stop. He's never been junky like this--even to his nose dripping. Of course, the nose dripping is a great source of amusement to him, and he has dubbed his snotty nose "volcano nose". He enjoys trying to make it erupt too--he laughs so hard when he blows his nose and gets snot out. Hilarious, right? Yeah.
Anyhoo, it was a wonderful weekend. We hope everyone had an equally wonderful one!!
