I spent a good chunk of yesterday playing on the computer, thinking about new themes and layouts and whatnot for the blog (what *is* it about January?) and updating to the latest version of WordPress (ack! Change!!) I hate that I have nothing to show for it, aside from no longer being able to comfortably navigate my own dashboard. Sheesh, usually a couple hours online gets me at least a post or two!
So, in lieu of a real post, I invite you to admire these pictures of Tristan and Simon enjoying the toboggans Granny and Papa Lou gave them for Christmas. Bonus: you can admire the nice pix courtesy of my new Fuji FinepixS2000. It’s no dSLR, but it captures some nice moments, no?
Of course, there’s more on Flickr!
They’re Canadian; of course I had to sign the boys up for skating lessons!

Simon was content to stay more or less like this:
Guess which one said he wants to sign up for hockey lessons next year, and which one said he thinks he’ll stick with swimming?
Not a day goes by that I am not amazed by the simple fact of their love for each other.
Bonus! A few gratuitous beauty shots, courtesy of the warm September sun:
(If you need more cuteness, there’s more on Flickr!)
Simon’s first day of Junior Kindergarten!
(My babies! What happened to my babies???)
