Macbeth the Usurper

Back from XMas

I've arrived home safely on this gray and icky day.

Christmas at my family's went well. Jen was shocked by the numer of gifts hurled upon our daughter. I was not. I've seen this family in action.

For a present, we had a family portrait taken. The grandparents also received framed pics of the little girl.

For Christmas, I gave Jen a calendar of my pics. She gave me Tom Holtz's dinosaur book (signed by the author). Good stuff!

The little girl gave mom a new pair of headphones. (She ate the last pair).

The little girl loved playing with the great toys up at granda's house. She found some jingly cat toys, a sponge, and a cat scratch. Yay. Cat toys are fun.

Jen and Wogs are staying up in Jersey until Friday. He brother will bring them home.

Dinosaurs

I've started into Tom Holtz's "Dinosaurs" book. Fun stuff.

My first impression is that this is a wonderful book. Tom has taken the most completest ideal to a dinosaur book that I have ever seen. This thing really is first rate.

The first few chapters are all about basics: how we know what we know. They also act as a primer for anyone interested in rebuking a Creationist. "Hey guys, here's a LESSON PLAN for you school board the next time that they plan to act like idiots."

K'plah

One of our new games is "k'plah". "K'plah" is our Klingon word that means anything. It is akin to "ungawa" in the Tarzan films. Most recently, we use this word in peek-a-boo. My wife has tried this on my niece, and my neice now goes into giggles over this game.
