It Came Upon a Midnight Weird....

In the mood for some tear-inducing laughter? Then check out these collections of Christmas kitch, here and here. I made quite a scene in the library this afternoon when I linked to these sites from Rachel's blog.

They lied.


See you on Tuesday.

At last.

At long, long last, my prayers have been answered. Chipotle is coming. Yes, I am going to be there at 3pm. Yes, I am hoping to get the free t-shirt. And yes, I am praying to win free burritos for a year. (The mere thought makes me dizzy with joy.) Anyone want to stand in line for the afternoon?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...













We don't have the snow that our families in Minnesota are enjoying, but we're trying our best to get in the Christmas spirit despite the balmy 60 degree days. This weekend we made gingerbread men and constructed and decorated our first gingerbread house with our friends Susan and Ava. Saturday we attended Durham's holiday parade with the Weinard family. It ended at dusk with lights, reindeer, and Santa Claus. We didn't get a good shot of Santa, so the last photo is courtesy of the Herald-Sun.

This is hilarious. Thanks to JT for pointing it out.

The GrahamCam: Star

video
We got our Christmas tree this afternoon, and after hours spent trying to get it to stand erect, we managed to get the lights up. Here's some footage of Graham putting the star on top. Yes, he's singing a Christmas carol at the very beginning. Can anyone identify the tune?

The GrahamCam Returns

video
It's been quite some time since we last posted any video of everybody's favorite little speed demon. But today we got ourselves an early Christmas present: a new camcorder. Our old camcorder served us well through many a living room romp with Graham, but it wasn't digital. That meant that we had to convert each clip using an analog-to-digital filter; not only was this time-consuming, but the quality was oh-so-1990's. Our new camcorder, however, records directly to an internal hard drive, which makes uploading and posting videos a snap. So yes: expect to see a good deal more footage in the coming weeks and months. Merry Christmas, us! And Merry Christmas, Graham groupies everywhere!

Today Graham learned a new life lesson: Keep your mouth closed when jumping in leaves.
