Happy New Year

I hope you all found as good a buddy to hang out with as Dylan did

I ordered presents for all the grandparents on December 18th to bring with us on our trip. Instead they took their time getting going, then embarked on their own trip, with a lengthy layover in Illinois. I hope they had a nice Christmas/Hanukkah/whatever it is tardy presents celebrate. I will have New Year's gifts for everyone though. I am thoughtful that way. Meanwhile Tommy ordered a present for Aaron on the 24th that got there on the 26th.

Candyland: living the dream

I realized that we lit candles for Hanukkah in four different cities this year, so this is what I call a Hanucollage

La fiesta continues

I'm behind by a couple days, so here, consider this a little time travel to two days ago.

Just like last year we put Annie to work making us a traditional Moroccan meal for Christmas dinner.

Dylan got to meet Young Santa.
Aaron got a Wii fit. It is not possible to capture in word or film how entertaining it is to watch him use it to hula hoop, but I gave it a shot.
When you first calibrate it, it broadcasts your BMI and your obesity status to all who are watching. Then it chunks up your online character accordingly.
I got a pretty pretty scarf that is getting a little mangy from being worn to bed.

Up tomorrow: yesterday.

Uh, sorry about that last post. Things got a little crazy...the fans got a little reckless...the XBOX 360 let the band unlock some wild outfits...it just went downhill quickly.

We're in NYC now and I am too tired to type any more words, so here are some snapshots of us with presents, including 1) a glorified cardboard box, 2) an awfully realistic tool belt with actual hammer, and 3) slippers that got their eyes chewed off (ahem, Aaron) within ten minutes of being received.

Reunion Tour

They've aged well and can still rock as hard as they could in their youth

Their fans have remained loyal
And some may or may not be wearing any clothes

Of course, people don't really change.
Things turned ugly rather quickly. Again.

Perhaps a name change would help? Vote in the sidebar.
