My little nerd

Eric discovered a new "toy" this weekend ... a calculator. He gets so excited when he adds two numbers together and gets an answer. He's been adding numbers all day. He was cracking me up, so I got my camera and took a short video clip of my little nerd:



And here is what he thought about me sharing the video:


(How can I NOT post that ... it's too cute!)

It's been a quiet weekend and I've been stuck at home for most of it. Mark is studying for his Series 7 license. He has to take the test on the 31st, so he's at work all the time and that leaves me stuck at home. I still have Christmas shopping to do and I'm running out of time! Kristi is coming this afternoon and staying until I get all my shopping done. Hopefully, I'll be done in a few hours. My brother and his four kids are in town from Columbus, Ohio. No one else is coming into town, so we don't have quite the crowd we had last year, which is a bummer because it was fun to have everyone together.

Good news for my mom ... she had her 2nd post radiation MRI (~ 6 months post surgery) and she is still "clean" (no tumor growth). This is really remarkable given the type of tumor my mom has. She is definitely defying the odds! We can now relax for another two months.

Hope you are all having a quiet and restful Sunday.

Good job, Ann! I've always told my kids that it's a parent's job to embarass their kids! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Oh Ann, Eric KILLS me!! He's so funny. Hope you got your shopping done.

Ugh-Series 7. I remember studying for my Series 6-I hated it and although I passed, it was very hard so I can only imagine what Series 7 is like. I'm sure Mark is a little smarter than me though when it comes to that material!!

XOXO

PS Tell your brother he's missing high winds and very cold temperatures here in Columbus!

Oh Eric just cracks me up - I just couldn't stop laughing at that! I hope Sam doesn't discover a calculator soon - we'd never get him off it!
Hope you got your shopping done (HUGS)
