Dinner's ready!

Dinner's ready!, originally uploaded by jessicafm.

What else can I say except, "Urp"!?

We had a lovely Christmas this year. Christmas eve afternoon at Mom and Mick's house for Davey and I where Davey and I were both lavished with gifts. What happened to frugal Christmas, Mom? Okay, well... since the gifts were all terrific and given with love, we'll let it pass this time. xoxo

Afterwards, Davey and I ventured to Polly's house for a casual family gathering over a big pot of delicious, homemade minestrone soup. Mark, after working the shop through the morning, caught a ride there with Dad and Linda so he could join in, too, and we could drive home together.

On Christmas day it was showtime: Our first time hosting a holiday dinner and my first time being responsible for the meal, including my first time roasting a turkey. Huzzah, it was a success!

Santa wuz here

On the Santa front: Davey was blessed by Santa this year with lots and lots of new books, a few movies, a cool car, stylish clothes, basketball sets (oops -- two of them -- two grandma's are in tune with Davey's desires!) and more, I'm sure.

With all the excitement across two days, Davey was pretty spun out by bedtime on Christmas night. He woke up at 4:30am on Boxing Day. What's up with THAT? I drifted in and out of consciousness on the sofa while I let Davey watch one of his new movies: Cars.

Now that I'm on vacation/furlough until January 5, I've got some time to relax a little, which is welcome. Today, Marina and I took Davey to Sausalito to deliver a big left-overs lunch to Mark at the shop, run along the water-front and for Davey to visit "my park" on Cloudview for the first time.

Once we got home this afternoon, I went grocery shopping for a few essentials and when I returned, Marina said that Davey had climbed in bed and requested the blanket and promptly fell asleep. That was an hour and a half ago. I hope it's just all the excitement of the last few days and that he's not getting sick.
It's been a great time off work so far.
