Flash back with me, if you will, to December 24. Christmas Eve sushi time!


Last year we had "Christmas Eve" sushi. In quotations. Meaning, we ate it on December 20. And last year just Kyle and I went. But this year we were committed to making it happen on the 24th. The original plan was to leave Hamish and Fauntleroy with Kyle's Mom after the Christmas Eve service, but the service was short, and everyone was cheerful, and we decided to go for it. 

This was Hamish's second Christmas Eve Sushi, but for her first she just observed. Fauntleroy did the observing this year and Hamish took part.

Sweet little Asian baby. 

It was an all-hands-on-deck dinner, certainly less reflective than years past, but it was happy to continue our Christmas Eve tradition with our little family for the 7th year (only missing one!).

January 20:
Hamish: Fauntleroy, if you burp from your bottom, I will say, 'Excuse you, Fauntleroy'. Okay?

January 20:
(After attending Mo Willems' play, "Elephant and Piggie: We Are In A Play!")
Hamish: Mama, I am Piggie, and he [Kyle] is Gerald... I don't know who you are in this game. Fauntleroy is Chunka Monka.

January 12:
Kyle: Did you go to a birthday where someone was dressed up as a mermaid?
Hamish: I did go to a birthday with mermaids.
Kyle: Ok, whose party was it?
Hamish: When I was born in Singapore and my house was in Singapore I went to a birthday party with mermaids!
Kyle: Are you talking about Merlions?
Hamish: Yes! I AM talking about Merlions!

January 2: 
I'm going to take my shoes off because I'm home. Then my feet will be naked-baby! And all y'all can see my purple toes. Does that sound like a fun plan?

January 2:
Hamish: Daddy...
Me: Daddy is upstairs, honey.
Hamish: But I want my best friend! Daddy is my best friend!

December 31:
(Overheard at Ashley's house)
MC: Hamish, if you want more wine you just have to ask. But don't say "wine". Say, "Please may I have more grape juice."
