Berkebile Christmas 2018! Paul got a box full of Atari cartridges during the white elephant and almost died of nerdy joy. via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BrHSwkhnYtu/

Christmas Tree is decorated! Except for our nice capiz star topper, which is not lighting up, but I'll put it up there anyway if Paul can't fix it. Kids loved handing ornaments and changing bulbs, but wouldn't get in the picture, the stinkers. via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bq8owBQnI1C/

Got a small tree this year because it was so impressively dense and perfect otherwise. We'll decorate it tomorrow once the branches have had time to relax. Added bonus of small tree is having room to put it in the front window this year!! 🌲 via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bq5x4CWHdK8/

They came out pretty great, other than a couple colors that didn't melt! I've been saving broken crayons for well over a year, and today was Use It Or Lose It day, so we used them! The kids helped peel crayons, break crayons, fill the molds, and pop them out! via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bq3W70DHL28/

Paul says if I want a new Fitbit for Christmas I have to start actually going on runs again and I guess that makes a lot of sense. Gorgeous day today!! via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BqnhGXanZo7/

I did a solidly mediocre job giving Max a haircut tonight. I can do a straight buzz cut better, but I wanted to leave it longer on top, so here we are. It'll look decent in a week, and for now, it doesn't look *completely* awful, and I saved $14. via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bn2ETa0ABVN/

After no-nap Max and general cabin fever got to be too much, we put on Lego Batman to get us through the late afternoon. I sure don't regret it when they're snuggled up so nicely together on the recliner! via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BnhO96mA1ym/

Keto avocado toast, with toasted cheese! Doing well with low carb this week, but I am still in the stage where I need to treat myself to the goodies I can eat to distract from what I'm not eating right now. 1 week down, 2ish more to go... #keto via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BmUbAozAjB-/

Leaving it all on the beach all week caught up to the kids today, so we've had a much more low-key day with less beach time and no swimming. The kids are feeling much better than they were this morning, and I think the adults are too. via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bl_WSJAAndw/

PJ is on her way to her first week at @lccnawakwa without us! She'll be spending mornings & evenings as a Family Camper with Mimi @jalkillian, and days as a daycamper! She says she's most excited to swim in the pool every day, and sleep out at the treehouse Thursday night. #MightyPJ via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BlQ3EzsgJXh/

Max was all proud that he "won" by finishing his ice cream first 😂 We did not explain that's because he had the smallest serving! Here, he has his two grubby little pointer finger taking to each other. We went out to celebrate PJ learning to ride her bike, because I say yes to any excuse for summer ice cream trips!! via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bk_Rz7zADOX/

Both kids are wearing #MerMade shirts; PJ also chose the palazzo pants Aunt @hannahhardatwork brought her from Bali, and her snow boots; and Max insisted on wearing PJ's old sneakers, which look comically large on him to my eyes but probably aren't really all that huge. We're going to Target to get presents for birthday parties and lots of fun kid stuff for our party next Saturday! via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi9lpjpA9BE/
