My mom and dad are spending Christmas with us in NYC. They brought Samuel back with them from Arizona. His architecture workshop at Taliesin West was a success--here's his academic output: a tree house.
We opened our gifts on Christmas morning with Mom and Dad on the sofa and Jen's parents via Skype on the laptop.
Samuel got a pocket watch, Portal 2 potato science kit, and a shirt that plays music.
Ethan got a computer writing tablet, a new pair of Heelies, and a flying inflatible shark.
On Christmas night Jen and I took my parents to see "Avenue Q." I whispered to Jennifer that Ethan would enjoy it. Then suddenly there was a puppet sex scene, and I whispered, "Probably better that they stayed home."
Here's to family.
