5 for Friday

1. JC was in Vegas for CES for just a couple nights, but this is what happened when he got home. It was Jack's nap time, but I kept him up a bit longer so he could see daddy before taking a rest. Not sure who missed who more.2. While JC was gone, on Jack's second outing for sushi (first time was for lunch a few weeks ago), we took a selfie at the sushi bar and this is how it came out. You may have already seen it on Instagram. 3. Well according to the tech world, the scrapbooking business is booming. With the sad news of Archiver's closing all their stores, I sure hope Gizmodo is right. This Casio Pomrie is pretty darn cute. 4. Really enjoyed seeing this piece on what celebrities would look like if they were normal people, as envisioned by NYC artist Danny Evans.
