Short week of work. I took a couple days off and we drove up to Philadelphia to spend some time at the Christmas Market and visit a few favorite spots in the city. Because the wife is off work for a couple weeks, she and the kids met me for lunch one day at work. Otherwise it was a short, rainy, and cold week.

We spent Christmas Eve doing a jolabokaflod, watching a movie, dinner at Buca Di Beppo, and finishing off our Tacky Christmas Lights tour we started last week. Then Christmas Day was opening presents and relaxing all day. Es var wunderbar!

I’ve had a runny nose for the past week or so. This week it’s also caused an ingrown hair inside my nose which made the end of my nose all red and swollen. That’s a great look … but at least it’s Christmas and I can pretend to be Rudolph.

Shout out to the wife and kids for several of the photos used.
