...when you're having fun.
Seriously though, it does. All of a sudden the holidays are over. 2011 is over.
Someone hit fast forward and I never got to post all of our pre-christmas adventures.
Like that time we spent the afternoon and evening in downtown New Haven- letting Oliver walk around like the proud big boy he is, finding Santa for a family picture at the Yale bookstore, grabbing some burgers, and checking out the enormous tree on the green.
And then there was the time we decorate gingerbread cookies. It was a train kit. Broken of course. We made the best of it, and it was probably better for Oliver this way.
And that time we went to the Musical Folk holiday sing along. Oliver and I danced. He smiled and I melted.
Oh. And how about that time Oliver made a donation to the Salvation Army...
...and then refused to return the bell.
So all of that and I haven't even gotten to our Christmas yet! Maybe by the 4th of July I'll be caught up. Hopefully a little sooner than that!
