I’ve been in Portland with my family for the last week and it has been so, so good. My sister, brother-in-law, and nephew flew in the same day I arrived and we spent our time together eating lots of good food (burgers with roasted sprouts! conveyor belt sushi! donuts! turkey!), consuming much excellent Stumptown coffee, and generally enjoying being together in my parents’ cozy house. Emmett came down with a case of crud on Christmas Eve, but managed to muster an appropriate amount of Christmas morning enthusiasm nonetheless.
I’m here for a few more days and will head back to Philly and Scott (he spent the holidays with his mama at our place) on Monday. Expect things to stay quiet around these parts until I get back (I need to soak up at much parent time as possible).
