It was nice to get away. I wasn't gone for long, but it was fun to hang with the kids. These photos were taken this morning -- ny nephew -- wearing his big brother's Peter Pan cap -- doing the "Green Eggs and Ham" floor puzzle that Ali gave them at Christmas for the fifth or sixth time. His mom is 6 years younger than me and I read that book to her so many times when I could read and she couldn't -- over and over and over and over -- that I wouldn't even LOOK at it for years. I don't think I ever read it to my own kids. Hop on Pop... no problem. Cat in the Hat... bring it. Green Eggs and Ham... not here, not there, not anywhere!!
