Junior Baker

Chris and I baked bread this afternoon. Well, he helped me dump ingredients into the breadmaker. The last thing to go in was the yeast, but I need one more thing. When I turned back to the counter, Chris was holding the bag of yeast over the pan. He looked up and said of his handiwork, "Good dumping".

"Chris, how much yeast did you put in?"

Stories from the big bed

Originally uploaded by mandy&john
We put Chris into a twin bed about a month ago. It's been a little rough as he is waking up more frequently now than he used to. I'm not convinced that it's not a coincidence, though. His sleep troubles could have something to do with the new molars that are appearing in his mouth.

Last night, when I put him to bed, we found Joey curled up on his pillow. Chris happily snuggled up next to her. When she came down to join us in the kitchen a few minutes later, he cried for a bit. I gave him the giant stuffed dog uncle Mike gave him last year, and he used it as a pillow all night. We didn't hear another peep from him.

It's cold

The lakes are already starting to freeze, yet Chris still insists on going to the playground. I think it was about 30 degrees when I took this picture.

Edaville 08

Originally uploaded by mandy&john
We went to Edaville on Saturday to see the Christmas lights. I forgot the camera, so I got one blurry picture of Chris in the airplane ride. That's all. He loved it, though.

For those who don't know about it (most of you), Edaville is something like a local amusement park in the cranberry bogs south of Boston. It was apparently huge back before the days of SixFlags. There is a roughly 1/2 scale train that goes around through the bogs, and in the middle is a collection of carnival rides and a train/cranberry museum. This time of year, they set up tons of lights around the tracks.

We went on a few rides before and after, but the train ride was the highlight. Chris kept running across the car to see everything on both sides.
