Holiday Prep x 2
It was a fun project for them as KC was stuck inside today on day 2 of a head cold. Thankfully it doesn't seem too bad but he typically needs to get a lot of extra rest when he is ill. And he had to miss dance class which kills him. I wonder if Rob will dress up this year? Even last year he did (Lil Wayne) but I am not sure about this year.
I also have to get cracking on Chet's costume. He has a vision of being a giant head of lettuce and somehow the body of the lettuce head is supposed to conceal the candy bowl from which he will dole out treats to the kids who ring our bell. At one point this all made some kind of sense to me (or else i was delusional) and I happily agreed to help craft it. Now it seems rather um, challenging so I need to spend some time thinking about that.
Added to that my wife and I are going shopping to put gifts on layaway tomorrow. I am actually excited as this is the first year since Lissa was born that my wife has been able to do this with me. typically up till now, the buying, wrapping hiding et al, has been on me. With her schedule being even crazier than mine, and the depression that often hits her at the holidays, she had no energies to devote to it. We have tomorrow morning free and I thought that perhaps doing it earlier would also be better for her emotionally. K and I rarely are out together with out the kids. This is going to be a fun date!
