Daddy's Turn

Heather is in Mexico for a wedding, so I thought I'd jump in and provide a couple quick 'Daddy updates'. The opportunities to do so, are few and far between.

Trees are very confused out here. It's 12/18 and they still don't know if they should be green, colored, or bare. Regardless, this is the Nor Cal version of Xmas Lights (courtesy of our front yard):

My conference room received some new artwork this past week...every startup needs some flare:

Brady wishing (and writing) Mommy were home :(

Some fun and excitement today when a moving truck knocked down a tree across the street. Brady was happier than a pig in you know what when he saw the police cars, cherry pickers and chain saws!

Finally, what would a boys weekend be, without a little goofing around:

Trying out the potty

For some reason, Brady developed a fear of his little duck potty, so its gotten a little dusty over the last few weeks. But with the help of our dear friends M and M, we're starting to get him interested again.

Tonight, we thought we hit the jackpot. Brady told his Daddy he had to go poop, so we promptly sat him on the pot. After letting out a very dramatic grunt, we were positive that he had actually "gone" this time (he's never done that before), so we got very, very excited. Brady proudly took his 4 M&M's, then stood up to reveal... absolutely nothing.

Turns out the kid is just one. big. faker.

At least we got some good pics of the non-occasion.

Enjoy your M&M kid!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas?!

It's hard to get into the holiday spirit when it's sunny and 60 degrees. Believe me, I'm not complaining, but it just doesn't feel very Christmas-y to us here in CA. Very few people even decorate their homes and I can understand why.... lights just look stupid on a house without snow! In fact, they look like those houses that still have their lights up come April in Chicago (damn hillbillies!)

For the 3rd year in a row, we (Matt) opted not to buy a Christmas tree. This, however, is the only year the reason made sense. Just don't need one when we're going to be in Chicago for the big day (yeah!!) So, for the 3rd year in a row, we pulled out this pathetic 3' artificial tree so Brady could display his special ornaments.

Brady had a great time trimming his own little tree and Mom and Dad couldn't have been more happy while watching. It's really true what they say, holidays come alive again once you have kids. We cannot wait for Christmas day!
