Merry Christmas and all that

An interesting holiday season for me this year. I've been so busy with family and such that I haven't pressed any lead to paper or gripped a mouse or stylus at all. The demands of family can really impede on ones own narcissism. I did, however get an idea for a childrens book about flying sheep. Will do some drawings for that this week. 

Heather and I didn't have much money for presents this year but we managed to make things work out alright for Christmas morning. The highlight of the season for my oldest boy Jesse, however, was the discovery of a Lego crane set under some brightly-colored wrapping paper and bows. He's only 7, so the construction process was long and arduous. But I had fun helping him get the model built. He's been playing with it and yes... even sleeping with the thing day and night since Christmas.

Here's the "thankyouverymuch" video he sent to his grandparents. The other little monster you see in the video is his 2-year-old sister "Emmy".
