Friday Philcon Photos

We're getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, and Kung Fu Panda experienced another first today: his first snow! We watched it from a window, and he was fascinated. If it hadn't have been a wet snow, I might have taken him out to experience it firsthand. I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities this winter.

As promised, here are the first of my Philcon photos, with more to follow over the next few days.





I should note that there are a lot of pictures I wish I had, but it didn't occur to me to hand the camera to The Gryphon to take them. When I was walking around with Kung Fu Panda in his Baby Bjorn, it tended to keep my hands occupied!

The room was locked, so she read in the hallway!
She also let me read one of my essays from my new book.

On Friday evening, The Gryphon was on a panel about Historical Gaming.

Moral:
Babies can be a great judge of character.

How neat to open your pictures (with the motive of seeing recent pictures of KFP, of course) and see Danielle!

Sorry I missed Philcon. Sigh.

Dani is the best. I wondered why you weren't at Philcon this year, but I figured you're probably too busy.

Our babysitting time is at a minumum. We used so much while we were in China, we're hesitatnt to call on those we trust with our kids too much now.

I figure another couple of years of not going out a lot and the kids will be old enough to leave alone part of the time. Then we'll only need someone at night and we'll be able to get out more.

That would be nice. We have a few friends who can do babysitting, but like you, we're reluctant to call on them too much. Besides, how could we let KFP miss out on his first Philcon? :)

We took the kids when they were little, too. It was a great time. Nowadays, however, they are a bit less portable. Hopefully, soon, they'll be old enough that things like the gaming room and the anime room will be a draw and we could take them again...if the hotel lets us put six people in a room.

Shouldn't be a problem. We used to travel as a family of five. We'd get two double beds and ask for a cot. In your case, it would be two cots! I doubt that any responsible hotel would consider splitting up a family.

We've had several hotels tell us that for fire code reasons they cannot allow more than 5 people in a room no matter what. Sometimes, they make allowances if the children are small, though. (Of course, mine are hardly small any more.)

It's so much fun sharing new things with little ones, isn't it? His first snow! Was this his first convention?

Love the photos of KFP. He's such a beauty. And he has HAIR! When did that start showing up?!

It actually wasn't his first convention, although he didn't see much of Otakon. My husband and I were on staff, and my sister watched him in our hotel room. He only really came to staff rooms.

Everyone's commenting about the hair, but it's not much thicker than before. It's always been brown, but you can't really see it until you get enough strands next to each other to be visible! He's also got some blonde strands, but I suspect he'll be a brunette.

KFP looks so BIG! When did that happen?

Overnight, it seems! I just had to buy a bunch of clothes on eBay to keep up with my rapidly-growing panda. He has outgrown most of the clothes that people gave us now.
