Merry Christmas

personal 0 comments suggest edit

Just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or a Happy whatever you are celebrating at this time of year. I hope you are spending it well with family and friends! :)

As you can see, I’m still hard at work watching the kids on paternity leave.

Playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 With

My brother is a drug dealer and the name of the drug is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the X-Box 360. I’m totally hooked right now, and I don’t usually get so hooked on games.

At least I am managing to still get some fresh air outside and enjoy the weather. Here I’m walking with my wife (taking the photo), my mother, my son, and my brother.

033 Of course, every walk we go on ends up with me lugging my son around.


I wouldn’t trade it for anything. :)

    @Craig, that's the view of Lake Sammammish in Bellevue near my house. It's a short walk from my house to get that view. :)
    Guess it depends where you go. Nobody walks in L.A. as the song goes. I like living in areas where I can walk to nearby establishments. :)

    Merry Christmas / Happy New Year to you as well. That area is beautiful, When I was up there I stayed in some condo's just down from the main campus and remember getting up in the morning and seeing the lake (or at least I think it was a lake). Its been 13 years since I was there, need to get back up there.
