Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!

Aenea will sit for a long time now and just play with toys. It boggles the mind. She does baby stuff that Ronan never did. She like crinkly baby toys, she passes balls from hand to hand, she laughs at silly things. He was so stoic (he made up for it later) and she's just incredibly content and happy. When she's done, she starts yanking on the nearest adult's shirt and demands to be picked up. It's sweet.

Ronan is sitting on the floor assembling one of his many Lego gifts. He keeps coming to ask for help, but I was feeding Aenea and had no spare hands. He's more than able to do it himself, but that's okay. I'll help the next time he asks (she's now asleep).

Made a chicken and cauliflower curry this week. We needed to use up some coconut milk. Ended up blending it with a roasted sweet potato and using that as the sauce (the spices had already gone in at various stages in the cooking process). It was *amazing*. The sauce stayed full and creamy--didn't break down at all the way coconut milk alone sometimes does.

Tom's making buckwheat pancakes and beef bacon right now. Yum. After we eat, I think we'll walk to Starbucks (if the one on the Corner is open). It's usually open and I know at least two other stores in the area are open today, but those aren't walkable and it's not sleeting, so hey.

Supper will be a brisket in the pressure cooker with parsnips and onions and maybe some sweet potatoes. And cider. Easy, comforting, and tasty.
