some little pics from christmas.

It has been a hectic new year so far between Julia turning one and a trip into the city to the Smithsonian who is is running two wonderful exhibits right now. The Pompeii exhibit is every bit as wonderful as everyone says it is and the girls really enjoyed the live butterfly room exhibit at the Natural History museum. I had to laugh when we were going through the stuffed animal section on the first floor and Zita looking at all the preserved exotic animals asked if there would be "stuffed babies". Thanks heavens no.

There sure are a ton of porto-potties in the national mall in preparation fro the presidential inauguration. Wow. They must be expecting quite a crowd. I will thankfully not be going and probably spend the evening curled up with a good book.

Lastly I found the most wonderful blog in the world. Try it to live your life vicariously through this amazing gypsy lass from the British Isles. Her wagon is so cool. intothehermitage.blogspot.com. Talk about leaving the rat race. . . . .

I went to the blog of which you spoke. What beautiful art work. I read some of it, but mostly skipped over the words. When I have more time, I plan to go back and read more. Thanks for the reference.

how much fun would that be! i would love to do it, but i don't think ryan would think it much of a go, and it might be hard to be a semi-respectible professor. but i still think it's pretty nifty.
