The photo shoot dragged on a little long for his taste:
But once dressed in his festive daywear, all was right with his world again:
Sadly, I did not manage to get a good picture of his shirt before he spit up, as his feet are the most interesting things in the world. It also featured a reindeer and the tagline "no mistletoe required."
2014 Book Bucket List
I did it! I finished all five books on my 2014 Book Bucket List. The rest of the reviews will post in the coming weeks, along with my picks for my January 2015 Book Bucket List.
Best of 2014
I typically post my Best of 2014 post on New Year's Day, as I read until the last possible minute (and anything I read in a year is eligible.) This year, Hawthorne and I will be in Atlanta for the holiday, and I'm not taking my computer. I'll post my Best of 2014 list(s) next weekend once we're back home. Reviews should continue to post this week while we relax with friends and family. I seem to be on a huge reading win streak, and I hope to sneak in a couple more reads before the end of the year, even as I remind myself these flights will likely not afford me any time to read, as I will be busy entertaining Hawthorne. Fingers crossed he enjoys the flight (or sleeps through it!)
I don't think I'll be making formal reading goals this year, but I do think I'll do monthly (to start) book bucket lists. I hope it will help me strike the right balance of reading whatever strikes my fancy as well as crossing books off of my never ending prize and TBR lists.
I've finally started reading 2015 releases this week. There are too many books I'm excited about in the coming year, and I know I won't be able to make time for them all. Plus, I didn't get to nearly all of the 2014 releases I wanted to. I'll keep working through both, and I hope 2015 is my best reading year yet. Since Hawthorne was born, I've managed to keep reading a lot, which makes me really happy. I don't watch nearly as many films or nearly as much television as I used to, but it works for me. And I'm lucky that he sleeps fourteen hours overnight (he does get up twice typically to eat), which affords me plenty of reading time in the evening.
Happy New Year!
