when I started this blog five years ago, I was a pet sitter and the name animal-crackers made sense. now I'm a stay-at-home-dad and freelance writer, but rather than confuse everyone by getting a different blog, it's just easier to keep posting things here.

all set for christmas
Don't get me wrong -- everything is mostly fine. Andrea and I exchanged cool gifts. (She got me a desk, I got her a dresser. :) The tree is awesome. The boys are getting a ton of presents -- including a lego table. And the gifts to family are in the mail.
The tree rocks. We made a gingerbread house (which sort of fell apart). We scarfed down three dozen holiday tamales. We even have plans to visit friends for Christmas dinner.
So why does it feel like something is missing?

Andrea raked leaves while Dylan played.
Josh helped decorate a gingerbread house that he, Andrea and I built.
And on Sunday we got a Christmas tree and decorated it.
