with ziggy

Jonah and Simon’s Pop Pop and MiMi left yesterday, after a wonderful visit with us in London. In just under two weeks they managed a trip to Bruges, we all travelled to Tallinn and we fit in the zoo, Museum of London, a Charles Dickens exhibit, the Museum of Natural History, sports class, indoor jungle gym, shopping, Lego-building, cooking, Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, Messiah at Royal Albert Hall, the park, the playground, gingerbread house-decorating, multiple baths and diaper changes and coat-zipping and shoe-velcroing and of course, Santacon.

Jonah and Simon were spoiled with love and holiday gifts. If there is a sight which warms the heart more than a 2 1/2 year old proudly strutting around with an Elmo backpack, I don’t know what it is. And don’t tell me if one exists either, you cold-hearted cynic.

Jonah keeps telling me Pop Pop and MiMi went up, up, up in the plane and are back with Ziggy the dog. I say just bring Ziggy next year and we can have the only children/retirees/DOG at Santacon.

    Readers should know that in the kitchen photo the J-Man is helping Big Daddy Pop-Pop Butch by plucking the leaves off of parsley plants to season the Carbonara. He did this very well, and an excellent meal was had by all. BDPPB
