Hope everyone's 2015 was put to bed happily, and that 2016 treats you all well.

So, what did I do in 2015?

I had a baaaaaaaaaybeeeeeee!! Who is fat and happy and awesome. And still not having anything to do with people food at nine months old.

I made some beautiful garb for the children for the Renn Faire, and I went to the Faire outside of Philly for the first time.

Danced in the show for Ukrainian dancing. Just the finale, but still.

Went to Disney World en familie.

Made a bunch of kiddy jammies and long underwear out of wool sweaters. I need to posts pictures...they are super cute.

Got pneumonia. Frowny face.

Sounds like a phenomenal year. A real one with health ups and downs, and family time, and happiness and journeys.

AND Ukrainian dancing.

So, like, winwinwin.

Red boots make everything better, it's true.

I hope 2016 treats you and yours well, and that you get rid of the pneumonia if you haven't already. Pesky thing!

The cough is gone, but I'm just wiped. It's hard to rest up around here.

I've been so bad at checking on my Friends page that I can't even remember if I knew about the baby or not. Congratulations on an excellent first most-of-year now at least!

I've been bad at posting, so it would have been easy enough to miss. His name is Alexander Nicholas, we call him Alec, and he's fat and happy and objectively the best baby boy in the world. Objectively.

While I've got you...
Have you and your cutie read any Ursula Vernon? Katrina maintains that Harriet the Invincible is the best book EVER. It's about a hamster princess who is a paladin of sorts and is very good with math. And we're really enjoying Castle Hangnail right now. The kids seem to have similar tastes if Half Magic is any indication, and I've been meaning to mention this to you for far too long.

I actually saw this reply several days ago, but I was on my Nook and it wouldn't let me respond. But tonight I was reminded so that was actually pretty good timing:

We JUST finished reading our last Eager tonight, and Sammy immediately started crying because he was going to miss us reading together. I assured him we'd just read something new, and that someone had given me some good suggestions for kids who like Half-Magic and I'd pick them up at the library tomorrow!

Because yes, we have Harriet and Castle Hangnail at the library, and thank you for the suggestion, because even though I bought them for the library and thought they looked fun, it hadn't occurred to me to try them on my OWN kids next! Oddly, I follow Ursula Vernon on Tumblr (and she's wonderful) but I haven't actually read any of her BOOKS yet...!
