It was Thanksgiving weekend so, as all good American families do, we put up the Christmas tree.

For this, Obi was thankful.


He spent all afternoon under his tree. By evening, Oliver was also under the tree and u discovered the capabilities of my camera.



Tomorrow we go back to work. Oliver, lying in my lap, doesn’t want to hear about it.



Plastic Balls and Wire

And that’s all I have to say about that.


Pardon the abrupt ending. Time to get a better video editing software…

Outside In

Obi has been trying to get into the box with our new Christmas tree for weeks. Little did he know that inside was a little bit of the outside.

"At last, the box is open."

"These green things are not exactly comfortable."

"Hmm, this is kind of heavy for a toy."

"Oli is right, this isn't very comfortable. I wonder if that is why The Girl took him out of the box."

"Hey, Boy, do you know what you're doing?"

"I always thought these tree things looked like they were tasty."

"Hey, Boy, does The Girl know what she is doing?"

"So we bend the branches down like this?"

"That one looks good right there."

"Ahh, the box is much better without the green things."

"The Out is in. Now for who gets to be In the box."

We haven’t decorated the tree yet. Why rush these things, really?
