Belated Christmahannukah

Every year I celebrate Christmas & Hannukah in January with my special group of ladies. The 07/08 party was hosted last night by Auntie Fafa at her new digs in San Francisco. Great job, Fa! We had a big group of 19 this year with all the significant others that attended. There were also some impressive gift exchange gifts, many being homemade. Kristen created the image collage above and made it into a calendar, and now we all want copies. That is the scanned version so it doesn't look quite as good as hers. Her boyfriend, Peter, was hazed a little bit but I think he secretly liked it. Or maybe not so secretly...

Here is Auntie Fafa recreating the Will Forte & Peyton Manning skit from SNL. Such expression and energy!

I was really happy I could come to the party, what with being a walking time bomb and all. It was buttloads of fun and I love seeing all of you ladies. Feliz 2008 everybody!

Evil in training

I am wrapping up the great scanning & archiving project of 2007. This is one of the photos that I came across today. I kind of wish I still had that shirt. And that lollipop!

Evilbebe is almost here...

My blog negligence is astounding, no? In my defense I have been wrapping things up and am now officially on maternity leave. The shoes are off and the ice cream has escaped from the freezer. The nest is almost ready for Evilbebe to arrive. Here are a couple of pics of her evil lair. Its not completely done but if she arrives tomorrow I think she will find it an adequate place to being scheming and plotting.

Ps. The images below look faded for some unknown reason but if you click on them you can see bigger images and actual colors.

This sign was all rusty but Mr. Evil sanded for several hours and repainted to get it looking perfect. He is racking up so many good husband points lately. And what is his reward? Sleepless nights and living with hormone crazed banshee (that would be me).

These are Evilbebe's ugly little friends :-)

Our bags are packed and ready to go...

I made a couple of collages for her wall. Mark says owls are the new black.

Here I am ready to explode like Jiffy Pop. Lord have mercy!

You know you're married to a geek...

...when he keeps you awake at night because he's trying to solve a Rubik's cube next to you in bed. True story, people.

NERD ALERT UPDATE: here is a triumphant Mr. Evil with the cube in question.

I want to eat your baby.

My family threw me a fantastic baby shower last weekend. This is the cake, made painstakingly by my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. I wish I had this kind of patience! My second cousin who is about 5 years old said, "I want to eat your baby". And so she did :-)
