Pretty sad when you take a color photo and it comes out like that! Yup, that's what we woke up to this morning. The first major snowstorm of the season couldn't have waited until January 9, right? Hello? I had specifically ordered a record-breaking heat wave for the Northeast from Jesus' birthday through Elvis'. D'oh!
I'm having a blast here. Yesterday was my grandson Connor's 14th birthday, and my nephew Andy's 12th.
Yup, they both get gypped (no offense to any gypsies who may be reading this) by having their birthdays the day after Christmas. Those two are best buds. So cute.
Here I am with my boy, Connor. FREAKY how tall he is! He's up to 5'11" now--surpassing his parents, who are both 5'10".
Don't I look short as hell? I'm actually quite statuesque, at almost 5'5". I can't get over how much he's grown since I last saw him in August. Hazel, too--she's getting so big. I didn't get any good pics of her last night, but I stole these from Courtney's Facebook page.
As you can see, she's no longer the Most Serious Baby on Earth. Check out the kitchen her father made for her; Courtney painted it.
So this is the kind of present you get when your granny is a comedian.
We were up till 2:00 this morning watching Family Guy reruns on Netflix. Typical.
Speaking of Seth MacFarland, my mother may have gotten the best present of all, as she announced on Facebook:
Yup, Mom got a talking Ted doll!
He says cool things like, "Johnny, how 'bout a beer, huh?" and "C'mere, you bastard." I didn't even know they existed or I would have gotten one for Connor. Damn!
Well, I hope you all are enjoying the season and especially hope you've taken the week off from work. Love to all!!!
