Well, that brings us to the conclusion of another year! Who are those old people? Look at this picture from New Year’s Eve 2004 (or is it 2005? Do you say the year coming or the year going? In any case, it was taken on 12/31/04.) The location is the same, too.

We took the boys to the Insectarium, and Miles was telling me about the bee that stung him on the ear that time at the park. I’m glad he’s not afraid of that plastic bee, but he was terrified of the butterflies.

My mom got the boys these Stomp Rockets for Christmas and they were a HUGE hit. Highly recommend. But we’ve already gotten two stuck on the roof. Oops!

The boys got metal Slinkies for Christmas, and I tried to make it go down the stairs. Didn’t work too well, but clearly they didn’t care!

I was playing with the new remote shutter release I got for Christmas. Here’s me and my friend Anne, who came over with her little boy (who is the same age as the boys.)

This might be my favorite moment of gift opening this morning (except the moment I opened my brand new Kindle, thanks Georgie!), when Miles saw the box I’d put their LeapPads in and exclaimed, "Oooh, Mommy, a SANTA box!" Then he tossed it aside, as if THAT was the gift. Hee!

As you can see, Linus is feeling a bit better. The rash has calmed down a lot and his spirits were very much improved. So here’s to hoping we have a Merry and HEALTHY Christmas this year!

The doctor says it’s Hand, Foot, and Mouth, but it seems like "Wrist, Ankle, Chest, Back, Butt, and Legs" to me. Poor Linus bear.
