just like mommy

Ally and I spent much of Christmas day in the kitchen– I in mine, Ally in hers. Ally loves her new kitchen set. Most popular is the way the little burners sizzle when a pot is placed on them, followed closely by pretending to wash her hands in the sink. When it was nap time yesterday, she pitched quite a fit as I dragged her away from Santa’s bounty.

The holiday was quite lovely this year. A simple menu meant less work than usual preparing the meal and a bit more space in the new house meant that we didn’t bump into each other during the present-opening extravaganza. Rob surprised me with Guitar Hero 3 for the Wii, which we are now playing with great gusto as part of our promise to accomplish pretty much nothing today.
