The opposite of silent night

First: Thank you for your kindness and enthusiasm on Chickadee’s post. Her head no longer fits through doorways, and she has proclaimed every one of you to be “totally cool.”

Second: I am rightthissecond eavesdropping on a giggle-filled sibling session of LEGO Lord of the Rings on the Wii. Maybe I’m over-romanticizing because I’ve missed these sounds so much, but I really do think the kids hadn’t realized how much they missed each other. I want to freeze this moment in time, even if it is punctuated with Chickie screeching and Monkey laughing so hard he keeps doing things like accidentally throwing quest items into the river (which makes her screech more, which makes him laugh harder, which… you get the idea).

Third: Merry Christmahanukwanzakah to all. I hope you are feeling as blessed and happy as I am right now.

    My crew arrived, ate, and are now off to ‘elf’ for my sisters’ families. I’m preparing round two of holiday treats.
    There is NOTHING like family at Christmas, so glad you have a full house tonight!
