Dennis and I got Luke an Optishot golf simulator for Christmas. For Dennis, it appears to be the gift that keeps on giving. I have a feeling that renovating the mold room has gone down on the priority list.
Dennis took Luke, Bridget, Henry, Sam and Jack to see The Desolation of Smaug this evening. Stella and I hung out together and ate pizza. During our mealtime chat, Stella gave me advice on how I should teach her to read. I told her I'd take her suggestions into consideration. That must have been OK with her, because a few minutes ago, she said, "Oh, and don't forget: you're the best mom in the whole world."
