Happy Holidays. It's Good to be Back.
We were in Florida having a ton of pre-Christmas fun, then returned to New York where we jumped right into Christmas.

Here's a quick run-down of what we've seen and done, Harper's Index-style:

8.12: Inches of rain that fell our first 24 hours in Ft. Lauderdale

12: Inches of snow that fell in our hometown while we were gone

20: Number of relatives we've seen and visited with over the past 1.5 weeks

2: number of birthdays celebrated with both our mothers while in Florida

6: Number of wild boar we saw grazing on the Florida Turnpike

66: percentage of wild boar that were babies

2: Number of days we spent in Sea World

1: Number of Shamu shows we viewed

4: Number of times the kids told us they like Disney World better

2: Number of picture albums we viewed with matriarch on in-laws side

100: percentage of photos that were glamourous

5: number of Florida cities visited

2: Number of times we drove through Yeehaw Junction, Florida

3: Number of appetizers I made for Christmas Eve celebration

1.5: hours it took to drive to family Christmas Eve celebration

20: minutes it takes to make the same drive the other 364 days of the year

562: number of legos strewn across our living room

4: hours Sophie spent playing Mario Kart on her Nintendo DS

1: hours spent reading as part of her regular school break homework.

Pictures soon. For now, the kids are at a movie with John and I've got an appointment with the sofa!
