Tis the season for celebrations and parties.

For Esther Day we went out to eat at a Chinese restaurant, where among other things we had the "po po platter" complete with flame. Fun trying to keep a small child from hot dishes and fire. In this pic, Dad's trying to perfect his Myspace photo taking skills...not sure what I was thinking though. Wow! This is one of the only posts where you see more of me than Gene.
Me and my girl:

Esther loves meaning to the word "bubble-bath."

She likes to pop them with her mouth. Hopefully she's not ingesting too much soap.

Esther has been really aware of noises lately. If she hears a plane overhead or a loud vehicle she says "no, no, no" and needs to be held. So I've been getting some good cuddling in. Gotta take it when I can get it.

Loose Cannon's Christmas party was this weekend. It was held at one of the bosses' houses and Esther and I made a short appearance then left Gene to enjoy the festivities unencumbered. We dressed E in her red Chinese outfit (below) and she won over the crowd. She lounged on the settee while eating a cookie. What a little princess. She doesn't know how to sit lady-like, which hasn't changed in a year (see photo following this one).

She enjoyed stacking Dev and Karin's chess set on a coaster.
