Ike's Holiday Lookbook 2010

Despite my oft recounted holidayphobia, I actually put up a tiny tree this year. There are even Christmas lights securely stapled to the front of our house. Thoughtful (I hope) gifts have already been wrapped in pretty paper and mailed off to our beloved recipients -- days in advance, I might add. I'm sure you're thinking, what the bleep has gotten into you, Erin?

Friends, it's not what got into me. It's what came out of me. Behold the reason for the season.

And would you look at that? Like mother, like son.

I'm a pretty lazy photographer, but I try to capture the milestone moments of my handsome little dude's life. This time, though, I think I may have gone overboard. A little.

It's been a long, beautiful year, but all good things must come to an end. And so, Ike and I wish you a very Merry Chrismukkah and a fabulously Happy New Year. The annual DC holiday blogcation is officially in effect, but not to fear. We'll be back next year with more! Of everything! Including Karly!!! Hooray!

So mark your calendars for Monday, January 3. Sure, I may stumble into work a little hungover, but I'll be here.

I hope you'll be here, too.

Time Travelers

Karly and I have decided to reward our hard work and unflagging dedication to paint gangstas and laser light makeovers and seizure inducing trends with a blogcation. A blogiday. A bloggatical. So we're going to glut ourselves with nog and booze, and sleep in and watch bad TV, until the year 2010 -- which seems like it must be far, far away in the future, but is actually only 2 weeks from now. Can you believe it's almost 2010 and I don't have a robot butler, or a jetpack, or a flying car that will shuttle me around despite my expired driver's license? The future has really been a huge disappointment thus far. However, Karly and I have a few plans in store for the new year which will make the future a whole lot brighter for you guys -- our beloved readers, who will hopefully return even though we're going to leave the blog totally untended for two whole weeks. To tempt you back, we're planning to have stuff to buy, and more stuff to look at, and we're even going to let people hire us to do things. So yeah, 2010 will be spectacularly full of awesome stuff and things.

In the meantime, we'd like to leave you with some season's greetings:
