Aaah, the last week of December – a time for family, gifts, mulled wine and pretty house decorations. Our tree is mostly decorated with xmas lights this year, since so many of the shiny decorations got destroyed by Eli and the cats, and I think I like it better this way.
Now that Eli is a little older and understands a whole lot more, I want her to experience that classic family celebration of New Year that I grew up with. It’s going to be a mix of Boxing Day presents opening under the tree, combined with a big family meal (but at a reasonable hour instead of at midnight) on New Year’s Eve’s Eve next Saturday. There’s a lot of deep cleaning to be done, and food to be prepared (my mom and sisters will be coming over, hopefully) so I doubt I’ll get much stuff animated or drawn.
It has become more difficult for me to write these blog posts since I generally sum the week up in the Project Boonka videos, and I don’t want to just post the same thing twice. However, with the year almost over there’s only one more Project Boonka video left, so these posts will hopefully become slightly more interesting and engaging since I’ll be dedicating more time and effort to them again.
