On the Seventh Day of Christmas... aka New Year's Eve

Mikro wanted to draw. (This is a relatively new thing. He used to resist any drawing or writing at all. Now he will cheerfully zip through half a ream of paper creating imaginary creatures...)

I asked him for Santa and a reindeer, which he did, but then he moved on to Terror Birds, various invented dinosaurs, reptiles and mammals, complete in some cases with life cycle drawings or evolutionary progressions... and (strangely contemporary and normal) birds and a dog. There was also the occasional alien with extra limbs and rocket ship.

Then, after he had me label all his drawings for posterity, he asked me to draw him a couple of things. He got a Santa, and some of his invented prehistoric critters...

Once Dad gets home, we'll be watching some more Christmas classic cartoons, and debating about whether the little monkey gets to stay up to watch the ball drop at midnight... (Probably...) And trying to come up with some good New Years snackage...

At this point, the Christmas carols are still in play, but alternating with the Red, White and Blue Beatles albums that Kev gave me for Christmas.
