Oh the neglect

After spending 2.5 hours trying to convince a toddler that yes, really, she needs a nap, I have a few moments to myself to contemplate my blog neglect. No better remedy...

Jana and I ventured downtown today to take the kids on the carousel at Westlake. They seemed to enjoy it, though Karsten wasn't his usual spunky self. Since the kids weren't really into it, and Karsten seemed to be sick, and everyone was hungry, we skipped the gingerbread houses at the Sheraton and went straight to the
all time best place for pho...Pho Bac on Jackson near 14th. Pho crack, seriously.

In the next 3 days I have a bit of a list to accomplish, but leisurely as I'm on break from school (really!): pick up Santa photos, some last minute shopping at Barnes and Noble, Trader Joe's, and a few other spots which will remain nameless. Also on the list for the next few days: excursions with Nana and Grampy, Christmas Eve lunch at the taco truck, and 5 pm service at St. James.
