So I realized in an email response to Peter that I STILL haven't posted pics from Christmas. I should've done a bunch of blogging while off sick Thurs and Fri, especially since that turned this into a *five* day weekend (today being MLK Day). Right. I hardly touched the computer - just laid and slept and didn't want to eat... Anyhow - feeling better, and about to meet Sharona for sushi lunch in twenty minutes, so I figured I'd pop up a quick post from Christmas in New York!
Here's my niece Sarah - what a cutie! I don't remember why she had a ribbon tied around her head - I guess she's supposed to be stylin'!? Was trying to do that thing where I lift her up with my feet - CLEARLY I need to get back to the gym 'cause I think I just succeeded in squishing her.
And here's where we let Sarah play with some blue paint.
No - actually I was testing out the filters on my *new camera* (more on that later!) - so it was set to replace a certain shade of pink with blue. Makes for a messy looking baby, hunh?
Who knew dad and Sean (my brother) would get such a kick out of playing with Brett's Wii!? And NOT a game we would've expected...we took Monkey Ball along, and I got Marvel Ultimate Alliance - and they got a bigger kick out of running around as super heroes kicking bad guy butt and smashing equipment and computers to collect gold coins! LOL We actually had a lot of fun taking turns (if only we had a third set of controllers at the time!) and teaming up on the bad guys.
Jesse - my sister-in-law - preparing for her hand modelling career...
...since her days as an abusive mother are nearly over! LOL Kidding! I took a ton of pics of her and Sarah together - this one was just the most fun!
Brett and Emma, my other niece - I have nooooo idea what's going on here.
Emma and mom lounging around. And you can see the Angel (Buffy spin off) doll I got Jesse for Christmas.
Brett lounging and reading.
Close up on the Angel plush doll, propped up under a lamp.
Me kicking Emma's butt at Wii boxxing. (OK, I let her beat me!)
Sean kicking my butt at Wii boxing. Hey, it's a tough game!
More Wii boxing. Careful - these games are hazardous to your health!
Mom clearly being worked too hard in the kitchen!
Jesse and the girls - probably supervising the Wii boxing.
