Holiday week highlights

Christmas Eve: For starters, Nolan was a wise man in the Christmas pageant at church. That was adorable, even though the crown was a little to big for his head. Later on we enjoyed the warm & fuzzy feeling that always comes from knowing the kids are all tucked in and the presents placed under the tree.

Christmas morning: The only thing better than seeing how excited the kids are when they go to bed on Christmas Eve is seeing the look on their faces on Christmas morning. It’s not just one of the best moments of the week—it’s one of the best moments of the year.

“Doctor Who:” The BBC’s hit show is quickly becoming a holiday tradition. The first post-Billie Piper episode, “The Runaway Bride,” was fantastic.

Brooker: I went out for a couple of beers with my old buddy Andy “Brooker” Miller and his fiancĂ©e Dori while they were in town for the holiday. It’s always good to catch up with old friends.

The Chicago Rooneys: My brother Tim and his family came to visit. It’s been a few years since they were all here.

Moira: We had a nice holiday visit with Kris’ parents. While there, Kris got to meet up with some of her old high school friends.

That’s pretty much where the fun ends. We’ve all been in various degrees of sickness for the last few days—getting 2007 off to a “great” start.
