Kellan and the flowers (in December!)

Home again

There were some brightness issues with the sun and the water here (also a novice using my camera!), but you can see that Kellan and I were enjoying a lovely day out at Seaport Village. We're home again for the holidays and loving every minute. Temperatures are in the 70s and 80s, the sun is shining, and all is well with the world.

Enjoying a winter's day inside

As evidenced here, Kellan would much rather enjoy his snow viewing from inside the house.

Kellan and the snow

Not a great fan. There are lots of "Ah dun!"s and generally grumpy attitude. I don't entirely blame him.

The Lumberjack Look

The Bear Rug

We got a great bear rug for Kellan's room last week. He loves it. These days, if we can't find Kellan, he is almost certainly sitting in his room reading books on the bear rug.

Forget "X-mas"...

Kellan has decided to rename Christmas. I don't think that it has anything to do with his stance on popular religion or the inclusion of all people in the holiday season. I believe that the word "Christmas" simply isn't able to sum up the wonder, excitement, and universal joy that Kellan finds in all things Christmas. From the over-the-top display at the house across the street to the hanging holiday advertisements in our local grocery store, from holiday lights to the decorated tree in Denny's, from the Walmart Santa to a wreath hung on someone's front door, Kellan simply loves Christmas. And so, he has decided that the word for Santa, elves, Christmas lights, Christmas trees, wreaths, and in essence, any holiday themed or related decorations will be --


Yes, you heard it here first, "Pah-puhm", the new word for that holiday time that we all love to love. And you know, nothing is quite so wonderful these days as Kellan's absolute joy at having spotted something Christmas, er, Pah-puhm, related, as he runs to me shouting, "Momma! Momma! Pah-puhm!". Who knows, he may just be on to something.
