And Away We Go!

We are on our way to the great white North, and you can follow iour progress here.  We are still learning this program, but either it will automatically update or we will do it as we drive.  Bon voyagey!

Who says you need an electric vehicle?  Look at the mileage we're getting in the Cooper.

We were very excited to see Ushi's name in our favorite Japanese restaurant.  Yeay Ushi!

Here's the Wolfgangs' tree.  Emily got all of her ornaments when she got married last year, so just imagine!

Well, Jesus Was Born In The Desert, Right?

G and I are wearing tee shirts (and I in shorts), eating ice cream.  It's 70 degrees F.  We just heard Annie Lennox singing Winter Wonderland on the radio, and now it's Bing Crosby singing Silver Bells.  Our neighbor mowed his lawn the other day, not exactly Christmas preparation where we're from, but what can you do?  This is still a novelty, even after living here for years.  Merry Christmas!

Our Favorite Ornament

G made this in school and kept it a secret until he gave it to us on Thursday at his class party.  We love it.

Happy Tree

We decorated our tree.  We are well on our way to having a Wolfgang tree - they have so many ornaments, you can't even see the tree!  We think more ornaments = happier tree. 
<p>We are more or less done decorating.  We've already started shopping, so we are more prepared than usual this year.
<p>We hope your holiday preparations are going along swimmingly, too!

O Christmas Tree

We are at the Sleepy Hollow Christmas Tree farm, and we've chosen our tree.  Here it is.  We think it's perfect, how about you?

And Dessert

p.s. Yep, we're outside - most Georgia restaurants have heated outdoor seating.

Fondue It Up!

We are at The Melting Pot.  I am wearing my skinny jeans.  I will be undoing a button on the way home.  Woot!

G Reads!

Our fantastic new book, Now I'm Reading: My World, arrived today, and G couldn't wait to get started. He read this so well in the store last week that we ordered it right away. This is the second time he's seen these books - the other 8 in the package he hasn't seen yet. The first video is from the opposites book and the second is from the sentences book.

We're so proud of him!

Family Fun Day, Pre-Christmas Edition

Yesterday Matt took the day off of work so the three of us could have a little wintery-wonderlandy fun. The first stop was that great granite massif in the East, Stone Mountain. Which, we found, is mostly closed for the winter on weekdays. We still were able to walk around and take the skytram up to the top of the mountain.

After our quick jaunt to Stone Mountain we went into "our city" (as G calls it) and stopped at Atlantic Station. We didn't exactly mean to spend most of the entire day there, although to be fair we didn't exactly know what we were going to do once we got there. We enjoyed walking around to the shops and seeing the sights again, and G really loved running around the "Central Park" area. We took the opportunity to stop at Ikea so that Chip could reaquaint himself with Smalland (which he had mostly to himself) and we could wander around furnishing our imaginary condo in the city in our heads. G was surprised to see that we got him an alien mask and after he opened it there was nothing we could do to get it off of his head. Then we realized it was time for the "snow" to fall at Central Park. We remembered how much G loved it last year and hustled over to check it out. Naturally G made a lot of friends while we were waiting and we all had a blast throwing foamy "snowballs" at each other. I think M got the worst of it.

While at Atlantic Station, G got his very first article of clothing from H&M (super-skinny jeans with a wallet and chain... what? yeah, that's right!) and is now the hippest pre-K kid in his class




We finished it off with a quick bite for dinner at Moe's and then headed for home. The Chipster was so tired that he didn't even object when we suggested splitting up his bedtime story into two installments. It was a really wonderful day.

Yesterday wasn't all fun and games, though, as Chip the model will show you below. Patty finished a hat bound for North Carolina and it looks great!

Snow In Georgia!

Atlantic Station has snowfall each night of the holiday season. Here's the scene last night:
