A Christmas Warning

The Spirits of Christmas, Chloe and Gibson, are prepared to lay waste to St. Charles, Illinois. Examples of their destructive powers can be seen at:

Notice the force of the wind created by Hurricane Gibson:

(And with a mere pair of pants, mind you...)

With fury and determination this storm will be upon you before you know it (with sprinting speed far surpassing most 16 month olds...):

Baracades will not work against this storm's fury, as it has been known to climb them with ease:

The only real hope any of us has is if Chole can contain Gibson in some sort of inflateable prison:

And even then, he will only pause for long enough to figure out how to tip it over:

(yes, he is inside tipping and Chloe is trying to hold it upright...)

Its amazing we can make it look like he sits still for a moment here and there:

See you Thursday,

December Photo Update...

Our latest photos are up at www.gnat-man.com/december2006/index.htm

They include Chloe running faster than the biggest darn turkey I've ever seen in a Thanksgiving fun run...

Chloe & Gibson setting up the German Playmobile Advent Calendar (It is a manger scene with Santa instead of a baby)...

Chloe dancing the nutcracker with her balet class...

Gibson in his Incredibles baby costume trying to help Jeanne and Chloe make a gingerbread house...

Chloe and Gibson in the play loft that our realitor demands we rip down soon...

Cibson climbing the ladder into Chloe's bed and then practicing his backwards free-falls...

And finally, two photos of the exterior progress on our new house. (Drywall mud was almost complete on 12/23 so its moving along - estimated closing date is between 2/15 and 3/15/07).

We are looking forward to seeing you all later in the week.

Love,
Craig

Local Health Officials Declare a Homedemic on Amelia Place

Local health officials declared a homedemic at 2140 Amelia Place yesterday. Fifty percent of the public have fallen ill thus far. The viral attack caught officials off-guard. "When the heck am I going to do my Christmas shopping?" one official was quoted as asking. Leadership at the home wants to assure the public that, though severe, it is not life-threatening. "You are NOT going to die" was the oft-repeated statement to victims. It is reported that the viral attack includes instances of sudden oral ejections. Alert officials switched hydration protocol from cola-based sodas to un-cola-based sodas in response. Although attacks of this kind often target the young and the old, officials note that the attack has thus far spared the senior members of the home. "We may be seeing the return of a virus from more than twenty years ago...at least we hope so", reported one health officer. Health officials have worked overtime to assist the afflicted. "Mostly we just try to keep them entertained and properly hydrated", stated one.

The homedemic started when a four-year-old fell ill. Three days later, he has recuperated, but the virus rages on.

Miles news

Well, last night it snowed a ton and school is canceled!! Turns out Janine doesn't have mono just a virus, which has passed. I am taking sleeping pills and they seem to be doing to opposite of what they are supposed to do (didn't get 1 wink of sleep last night).Just to clear things up mono is only spread by saliva so if your not sharing drinks or kissing Ian you don't have anything to worry about for Christmas. We cant wait to see everyone!!! Much love!
