Geeky 365 -- Day 73

Today was an amazing day.  Orion and I spent the day, just the two of us.  We stayed busy but had such a great time.  We woke up bright and early as usual and ate some breakfast and lounged around the house for a little bit.  We got dressed and headed off to run some errands.  We went to the post office, grabbed some groceries, and stopped at the gas station.  By the time we got home it was almost lunch time so we pulled a chair up to the stove and started making some spaghetti and cheesy bread for lunch.  While that was cooking I also put together chili in the crock pot so it could cook all day for supper.  We ate some lunch and then laid down on the couch to watch a movie, although I don't think nap time was ever achieved.  We got up and got all of the Christmas stuff pulled out of the basement (which is a lot more work than it should be) and started getting decorations put up around the house.  We set up the tree and then went in to the kitchen and made some monkey bread.  After the bread was in the oven we came back and decorated the tree.  Orion loved putting the decorations on and I think the tree looks great...even if there are 8 decorations on one branch and no decorations on other areas at all.  We ate some monkey bread, listened to some music, read some stories, and then put in a movie.  Within 20 minutes Orion was sound asleep in my lap.  It was a great end to an amazing day with my kid.  I love him so much and days like today make the entire world seem like a better place.
