The Best of Daddy Geekdom 2011

The year winds down and the holidays barrel towards us.  It's usually a time of reflection...and eggnog.  Man do I love eggnog.  And WonderWife™ has started making her own...  Oh sorry.  Got distracted. 

2011 was a year with incredible ups and downs.  On the positive side, my family is flourishing like WW™'s summer garden.  Professionally, it was a year filled with great challenges and personal rewards.  I spent more time in airplanes and hotels this year than the last three or four combined.  It was a crazy time with a tremendous amount going on, but we all got through it unscathed.

Somehow I carved out time for blogging (though not as much as I would have liked).  And as we prepare to put this year to bed, I thought I'd list a handful of my favorite posts from the 12 months that made up 2011.

I spent a lot of time this year trying to feed the Bean's inner geek--not always successfully

I spoke my mind in a post that garnered some attention.

I ended up living with some unlikely new roommates.

I continued my battle with the worst arts and craft ever.

And I exposed my kids to one of the most whimsical authors of my childhood.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Lukas Love Shel Silverstien. We picked up the latest, posthumous one this year and they are great too. I hadn't read that post, so thanks for linking it.

James...Thanks for reading it. I do love Shel, except for that damned Giving Tree, which makes me cry every time!
