Every holiday is Christmas to a certain kid

Normally I’m all BAH HUMBUG this time of year, but Marlo’s enthusiasm is just a tiny bit contagious.

In celebration of embracing change

We threw a party involving both Marlo AND a piñata and somehow no one got hurt.

The past that is our ongoing present

The only thing that is going to top this for her upcoming birthday is a real live puppy, and wow is she going to be devastated with a gift card to a hardware store.

I am a horrible person

At the birthday party on Saturday Marlo got a balloon poodle.
