Captain Obvious is out of town on business. I always miss my beloved husband when he has to travel for work, but this time of course, I miss him even more because it is difficult to take care of a sick boy all alone; Captain Adorable has a sinus infection and a double ear infection! So I am very, very pleased to have my parents here to visit.

We celebrated Sinterklaas together on December 5. It is such fun to make our plans and surprises for each other, and of course to watch those surprises unfold. It is fun to give gifts and continue traditions. We don't celebrate on as grand a scale as my mother did when she was young (something like what is described on this web site) but we make each other earn the presents!
