More of Christmas!

Nick and I made our big announcement on Christmas, we are expecting Thing Three!!! 

The morning-noon-night sickness is starting to hit, and I'm actually coping with it pretty well so far.  Thing One is excited, and seems to know what to expect.  Thing Two has a sense that something is about to change, and has been nursing as much as he can.  It doesn't help that he is still getting teeth.  I made the boys 18" dolls for Christmas, with the intention of that helping them cope and "help me" with the baby. 

Breakfast, with my new pan!
Nick got me new pots and pans for Christmas.  He'd been promising them for some time, and I'd thought he'd forgotten about them when we had to use the money for something else.  He fooled me.  Three new pots with lids, a skillet and three utensils!

So of course, Christmas morning I had to unpack them and cook some breakfast.  It was a simple affair, because we'd already had something to eat and were headed over to his parents later.  But I did need something more.  So I fried some potatoes. 

We'd also gotten a sushi kit from my sister and her husband, with two kinds of vinegar, soy sauce, pickled ginger, wasabi and nori.  Like I said, breakfast was a simple thing; I fried the potatoes in sushi vinegar and soy sauce.  That was all.  It was so, very good!  I've been using the sushi vinegar and soy sauce on nearly everything since then. 

Thing One just climbed up and lay down in my lap, "I'm here, Mommy,"  he said.  "Tickle Me!"

Merry Christmas!
