The end (?)Blogger is shutting down ftp-based blogs, which include this one. I'm not sure whether I should move this blog or just shut it down. I guess I would like to keep it for archive purposes, but I think I'll be posting more often over at the Durbin family blog.

Today is my birthday.I'm 31. Last night we hung out with Frederique, Brian, Mari and Katie and tried out some spinach & artichoke dip that will possibly be on the menu (shhh). We watched some Olympic ice dancing, including human-color Navi girl Meryl Davis, as well as random YouTube videos. Somehow we did this till 1 a.m.
I am a little tired today but we are looking forward to having some people over tonight, including Jason and Sadie, whom we haven't seen in months.

The yearHad Christmas celebrations too numerous to count, including with my family in Paducah.
Getting stuff done in the new year. I might do a recap of 2009. I should make a point to do that instead of wasting time on something else.

Thanksgiving '09Had Thanksgiving at Shannon's brother's house in Carroll. Link had fun chilling with his cousin Diana. We had some delicious turkey served from a slow cooker on the floor. Vahida made this great dessert that may or may not have been Bosnian.
Watched parts of two terrible movies, Without a Paddle, which I'd been morbidly curious about, and Santa Buddies, which I snarkily tweeted about.
We beat the holiday shoppers by looking around downtown on Thanksgiving. Sure, we couldn't buy anything, but who needs the pressure?
I mean to call my parents and siblings and catch up. We'll see them for Christmas - can't wait!
Sunday, November 15, 2009Link and I came along to Shannon's retreat near Stillwater, MN. Mostly relaxing weekend, had some time to just chill in each other's company.

Little things from this weekLast Sunday we visited Lee and Randy and had a good time playing with Link and Alissa. Our car broke down on the way out of town, but it was ok because it gave us a chance to visit Shannon's former neighbor, Patches, while Shannon's mom picked us up and brought us home.
On Wednesday I saw Inglourious Basterds with a friend from our home birth group while our wives stayed at home with the babies. How masculine of us. The movie was good. I was expecting it to be even more violent than it was, so I was actually relieved and able to just enjoy the story after a while.
Today we went to the Moores' for Shannon to take Trent's senior photos. We hung out and played with the kids and had yummy stromboli.
Very tired for some reason. It's odd because we kind of slept in. Link is cute as always, sitting next to me cooing at toys.
