It was a great weekend. Christina started the weekend by spreading her super good mood to everyone. No one could resist her smiles and loads of stories.

Sunday we got our breath of fresh air and bundled up for outside. Christina loved it and I had to pull rank and tell her we were going inside. I wasn't cold yet and by the looks and sounds of things neither was she, but the dad feeling said 'no' go inside before feeling cold. Kids change a person, before I would have stayed outside most of the day and liked it. Now I worry too much about Christina.

So much to update, I don't know where to start. So we'll cover the basics. Christina is doing well. She had a respiratory infection for a few days over the holiday time. Christina maintained her good mood throughout even though she wasn't up for all the physical stuff. We enjoyed some mellow time.

The weather has given the days at work seem short, but tiring. With the colder temperatures I have not taken Christina outside to play. I am sure she would be warm enough all bundled up and would likely enjoy it. The dad voice in my head says no go. I think I may be getting old and over cautious.

The Christmas tree looked nice this year, but I am glad it will be down tomorrow. The holidays always bring a rush of things to do. It was nice to see friends and family. Christina looked beautiful in her Christmas dress.

I have been working on the slideshow web page and the new page is up. I have a few tweaks to do, but the pictures are up and only about a month behind. I also have been going through photos to print. I have well over 31,000 now and it would be nice to hang some new prints up. It is a slow process deciding which to print with so many. I have about half a year gone through. If anyone would like to go through pictures of Christina let me know via email and I will send you a link.

With Christina sick I am happy to say I have managed to stay well. Every few days I will get a little stuffy nose, but it only lasts for half a day. I really need more hours in a day or a better sleep schedule. Speaking of that, I am going to call it a night and watch a movie.

Saturday the family breakfast did not go as planned. Christina and I had fun together and made the best of it. We both ate a lot and were ready for a nap soon after we got home.

Sunday we went to the pool and enjoyed some splash time. We also went to grandma's to make cookies. Christina had a fun time and made cute reindeer cookies. It was just as enjoyable for me to watch her.

Kicking and splashing

Cooking cooking and more cookiing

I have been enjoying cooking lately. Made some beef vegetable soup for the first time in a very long time. Also have turkey soup in the crock pot now. Of course with the turkey leftovers. And the thanksgiving meal turned out beautiful. Even got a compliment saying the turkey looked like a picture in a magazine. Yea me.

The beef ribs turned out better in the crock pot than the ones in the oven so the next round will be in the crock pot. Hmmm, yum.

And of course it is the time of year for that friendship bread. I have a couple loafs in the freezer and one half gone on the counter. I am going to try different flavors, the banana has turned out well, so I'm getting the courage to try chocolate. Chocolate bread seems a little different for me.
