Earlier today, I did some Christmas shopping while the hubby and his dad took the kid to see the new Narnia movie. It was SO hard to hold back on the purchases, but I think I did a pretty good job at spoiling him *just* enough--he's been a good boy, after all.

I finished my Christmas gifts just under the wire, and they should be to my house by Christmas, which means that they'll be late to some of the recipients. Last year, I made a hard cover book with the year-in-pictures of The Kid, narrated in rhyme, from his perspective. Everyone loved it so much that I've decided to make it a tradition. It's actually the perfect gift for someone who's hard to buy for, and they end up costing about as much as I would have spent on each person anyway so, score! We buy one for ourselves, too, which serves as a sort of baby book for him since I'm too lazy to fill out the real, actual baby book.
Tonight, I have been recruited to make my Spicy Chorizo Soup for dinner, which I'm kind of looking forward to. After two weeks of not cooking at all, I'm going to enjoy chopping and stirring. Wish us luck for a safe drive home--next time I blog, it'll be from Kansas!
