We had two fantastic weeks with Erik at Christmastime.
The best thing was that, at the end, none of us had gotten enough!
Erik spent a lot of time horizontal - on the floor - playing with our children.
Erik took each the kids on dates throughout the Christmas break. Here he is with Jack (holding Jack's current obsession - race cars) before their "special date". The kids love these times, as evidenced by Catherine's comment, the day before Erik's holiday ended: "Daddy, since this is your last day of holiday, would you like to take me on a date?"
