Grand Ol' Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas. The kids couldn't be happier with the gifts that Santa delivered. The two younger kids got their first bicycles and are itching to get out and learn out to ride them. Only two video games in all were received– LEGO: The Lord of The Rings for our son, and three Sims 3 expansions for our daughter. That's some kind of rarity in this household.

The older boys received a bunch of incredibly fun boardgames:

If you're into dice and card games all four of these were a hit in our family.

I'm finally on the mend from whatever illness I have had. The kids and Christina came down with flu-like yuckiness early last week. I did my best to avoid them, but that's hard to do with family, and in the end I got it too. Luckily I didn't have it as rough as them. We were all more than well enough to enjoy Christmas together though. For that, I'm very thankful.

Now that the holidays are winding down, I'll be digging deep into getting my Pelican-based site up and running. One last piece in "How am I going to do this?" with Pelican was solved this afternoon with a lucky Google search. I think I have everything I need now. I just need to tweak the theme I'm working on a bit more before I kill off this Ghost site and make the switch. I am so ready to break away from the confines of a blogging system that is far from as ready for usage as I thought it was.

Happy New Year to all!
