A Holiday Weekend

I've had a wonderful, long weekend.

Martin came in to town for a day to hang out, talk shop, get beaten at FIFA 12, and spend some time with the family. We had a fantastic time.

Mum and Dad, AKA Nana and Pop were our next visitors. Again, another wonderful visit: Dad and I built a swing for the girls - thanks to Claudia and SHC for the awesome supplies.  We all put up the Christmas tree. And had the opportunity to have a dinner to celebrate Amanda's upcoming anniversary of her 28th birthday.

There were lots and lots of smiles, and you can't beat that. Plus the house is ready for the holidays!
