Christmas Half Cheer - Part 2

the dark side of dogs, dog poo

the height of our christmas cheer came actually a month before when bob happened upon these holiday suits on for $50 each.  For that brief 5 minutes when we were ordering you could hear santa's sleigh bells and smell the cookies.


after like 10 jumps we were getting tired and barely getting off the ground.  Props to Jen for taking all these photos and making us look super ultra cool and handsome and dashing.  Bob is straight up going for it in this one and i'm being a sneaky little stiff backed weasel sneaking around in the air.

got 4 sets of 3 matching petanque balls so 4 people can play!

my xmas haul.  socks, pajama pants, shirt, lotto tix, Tadahiro Uesugi art book, al parker art book, Yoshida Toshi ukiyo-e art book, petanque sets, puppy plush, an expensive and awesome Shun chopping knife, and a Six Point home brewing kit that makes Resin IPA that's over 9% alchohol.

after presents it was time to get back to the Star Wars marathon that I campaigned for so we could see the 7th film in the theatre that had just come out.  Including the bill murray christmas special and Inside Out we saw 9 movies in 4 days
gingerbread house decorating, people were just less into and we never got around to destroying them.  Next year we really have to bring it in that catergory.

parents, my dad had hand surgery so was down a hand.


wind up penguins from our british christmas crackers.
i told bob i did not want to sit next to him when we watched star wars the force awakens because i didnt want to hear any of his chuckling or see any of his reactions and be cued into when I was supposed to laugh or find something brilliant.  he sat two rows back and i still heard him chuckle once, therefore i hated that scene instantly.  Bob says he's the biggest star wars nerd that he knows directly around his circle.  Look at him, he can barely contain his joy waiting for the movie to start.

tried to start a new tradition and start down the long road of perfecting our own meatball recipe.  the meatballs were mediocre and we have a lot of years of meddlin' to do.

dropped bob off in syracuse to see his friends that live next to Onondaga territory so some places have crazy names like Tsha'hoñ'noñyeñ'dakhwa'
parents gave us their old walk from the early 90s.  If there is anyone I trust with my super authentic chinese wok it is this guy.

Ok so christmas will be better next year.  We are gonna try our hardest to blow something up and make the food better.  I know 4 of my readers are saying right now that this christmas was fine but the holiday cheer miester's job is to bring the cheer even if they didn't know they wanted it.
