Dinner with the Logelins

Matt and Maddy were nice enough to meet me and a couple of my library peeps at the Polish restaurant. It's kind of a toss-up which was more rad -- the company, or the FOOD! (And that's really saying something about the food cuz the company was STELLAR!!!)

Thanks, Matt & Maddy!

When you have a chance, check out Huell Howser's visit to Polka Restaurant!

Rad Hanukkah present!

Check out this *awesome* prezzie The Boy got from his Auntie Kathie today!

Update on Lymphoma Steve

Soooo, 'member that guy I blogged about awhile ago who needed a stem-cell transplant for his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma? Well, I have a terrific update about him! ... Awww, heck, why don't you just read HIS telling of it, here...

New Can

I'm not sure how I feel about this new caffeine-free diet pepsi can. On the one hand, it's a nice clean look. On the other, how will I ever adapt from the switch away from gold?! ::sigh:: ::shakes head in dismay::

Christmas Tree!

The tree is done!

For some close-ups of ornaments, check out my Flickr photostream.

Visiting the In-laws in Chicago

Not only did we visit the living rellies during our Thanksgiving visit to Chicago, we visited the ones who are 6-feet under, too.

The cemeteries in Chicago are VERY OLD and VERY BEAUTIFUL. Somehow, the cold weather and bare trees made it seem even prettier...

Gingerbread House

The Boy has always wanted to make a gingerbread house! This weekend he got his wish. (Praise Odin his Papa does this stuff with him, cuz this sorta think ain't Mama's cup o'tea.)
