New Years Eve – just like any other day. Thomas made banana soup in his new kitchen and proceeded to feed it Samuel. Seriously – that kid will try to eat anything.
I hung out with the boys for a while until they both napped for three hours (at the same time!) during which I cleaned up the house.
And then we joined our friends Corey and Jen to check out the Christmas lights at the Portland International Raceway. A little disappointing but at least we can say we’ve done it now. I managed to take a bunch of blurry unimpressive photos.
We then ended up back at our house for a dinner of lasagne and a glass of champagne before Jen and Corey headed home and Kei and settled in to watch the Extra special season finale of Extras. We both managed to stay up until midnight to watch the ball drop and then went to bed. Party animals.
I spent the day looking after this sick little boy. I knew he really wasn’t feeling well when I looked over at him while he was eating lunch and found him staring at the wall. Just staring. Then I felt it his head and it was obvious he had a fever. So Thomas spent most of the day like this – lying on the couch watching TV.
By Wednesday he seemed to be feeling better but continued to play the sick card to watch more TV. I’m wondering how a three year old learns that “sick” means talking in a low, pathetic voice and looking at me with big puppy dog eyes. Must be from watching his father.
It was difficult to narrow it down to nine, but I work well with limits. I also limited them to family/life favorites and landscape. OK, I still couldn’t limit it to nine, but I did my best. I’ll post client favorites soon.
and one more for 2010…
