Today was Epiphany and the feast of the Three Magi. We celebrated Little Christmas today as well. After church this morning we had a nice brunch with my parents and Tara and Erik. We missed Shelby being home, too. We had meat pie and quiche because today was La Petite Noel or Little Christmas. This is a family tradition where the tree stays up till the 6th and we have a nice meal and my parent’s give us some small gifts. There were a couple of gifts left over from Christmas that Eva had not opened because she got fussy. One was a teething ring/photo album from Little Einsteins. I have to bring it back to Target however as there is a slice across the front that I didn’t notice when I bought it. The other Gift that we had left over and unopened was a set of alphabet blocks from Mimi and Grandpa Dano. Eva is going to have so much fun with them as she learns her letters.
Later in the day we went for a nice long walk. Eva got all bundled up in her sleeper and in the baby sling, she started out facing forward but quickly fell asleep so we switched her to face inward.
After that Allison and I relaxed and watched all (two episodes) but the last episode of season 4 of Smallville. I picked up season 6 the other day. I have no idea what we are gonna do when we actually catch back up to where the show is at the present time.
Tonight we had a very nice beef stew with my parent’s, Tara, Erik and Mike. Then we had our Little Christmas. I took a bunch of photos and wanted to capture the end of Christmas as well as one of my favorite Christmas decorations, The White Porcelain Tree. It made for some nice shots especially the motion one.
I have noticed a large increase of traffic from Entrecard as well as people who use Entrecard who are linking to me from their blogs. Here are a few folks. Chris Brandrick just got a new D40 for his 21st and will start taking photos. He mentioned my Photo-A-Day on his blog. Widgets Lab discovered Utterz because of my blog. How very cool. And Lad Madrigal started his own Photo-A-Day, no link love but that is okay because he comments a lot. Oh and a non-Entrecard bit of link love came from Jenn who wrote “Danthorn’s Conquest” on her creative writing blog. I supplied her with a theme and a character name and she wrote an original story.
