the joys of holiday tradition

the holiday season is off to a fine start.

i got my first viewing of a christmas story in a little earlier than usual this year on friday and today we went out with family to cut down a christmas tree. it was in the mid-40s and sunny, so it didn't feel like christmas is a mere weeks away, but it was a lot more pleasant than years past when we wandered around in sub-zero temperatures. we're in a competition with our neighbors this year [ they don't know about it ] so we bought about 30 feet of natural "garland" and a wreath too. we will have the most kick-assedness house on the cul-de-sac, even if i have to get on the roof and string up all manner of lighting.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
