Feeling Festive No comments yet

Well, Christmas is nearly upon us so the little Pykes have been busy decorating. We couldn’t resist getting another live tree this year, even though we plan to be in Santa Fe for actual Christmas, it just cheers up the place with the lights and lovely piney smell. December here can get pretty dark and cold.

I’ve learned my lesson and decided to stay clear of any globe-like decorations this year. Shiny, ball-like objects hanging at eye-level are just too tempting for little boys to resist and inevitably lead to fights and near-misses with the tree nearly being pulled over.

Instead, we took the balls to the park across the road to decorate the cactus and spread a little christmas spirit. Adam pretty much did the decorating all by himself and was mighty proud of it.

We will see y’all in the New Year. Merry Christmas!

Happy Birthday David No comments yet

Our little guy turned two on rainy and pretty chilly Sunday. There we presents to be opened (and marveled at by both boys), waffles to be eaten and then it was off to play at Zilker Park and ride the little train. As luck would have it, there was a balloon vendor peddling his wares, so we picked up helicopter and dinosaur on the way.

Later our friends Lena and Sam came over to celebrate with some cupcakes and popcorn. David was not particularly impressed by the candles on the cupcake and delegated the blowing out to Adam, while he procured for himself a cupcake that wasn’t on fire.

Clever guy, our little David.
