Pierce and I built a simple Lego Mindstorms robot to capture any mythical creature that comes to eat the M&M's in the trap. (click here for a high res version)

After an exciting "sleep" countdown Pierce was thrilled for the big day to finally arrive! We enjoyed a relaxed day at home watching an eclectic assortment of old movies: Monty Python's The Holy Grail (a big Pierce fav), Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Pierce was thrilled with all of his presents and added some new stuffed animals to his burgeoning and unusual collection: an Ostrich and a Chinchilla. We enjoyed a breakfast of scrambled eggs with latkes topped with sour cream and caviar and Mimosas. Breakfast was inspired by my favourite Brooklyn based cooking blog Smitten Kitchen. As most of you know when I'm not knitting I'm cooking and Smitten Kitchen is a great source of inspiration and competition much to Greg's delight! Enjoy the photo album and don't miss the rubber chicken (I'm not kidding). Click on the photo for more.

Once again we attended the always charming and somewhat raucous Children's Christmas Eve Service at St. Matthew Trinity Lutheran Church in Hoboken. The children participate with a parade of instruments to the altar where they gather to hear the story of the birth of Jesus. The 135 year old organ is a treat to hear throughout the service. Every year here's always one child who has the parents suppressing peels of laughter and this year was no exception as a 4 year old boy had the Nativity sheep battle at the altar. Delightful!

Pierce launched his website tarswi.com today. The website will be host to comics chronicling the adventures of two characters, Tariser and Kiwi. The characters are based on two of Pierce's many (unusual) stuffed animals: a Tariser and a Kiwi.
