Have Yourself a Merry Little...

I'm using another one of A.'s photos from New Mexico. How kick-ass do those trees look?

I just got back from Ottumwa and my family Christmas. My nephew is now three and a half and finally getting a better understanding of the holiday.

Last year when he was two and half and impatient with how long Christmas mass was taking, my sister tried to remind him that we were there to celebrate Jesus. To which he replied, "I already have a baby Jesus at home."

This year, before we could sing happy birthday to my Uncle, my nephew made us sing to Jesus. Of course, he was kind enough to volunteer to blow out the candles. Boy, but how the kids learn to use Christmas to their own advantage earlier and earlier.

Now, I will take my leave to finish drinking my cranberry apple tea and watch The Family Stone. (my new favorite holiday movie) Tomorrow at 1:30 pm, I'll watch my old school favorite Christmas film, Meet Me in St Louis. I know, I know, I'm an old sorry sap.

Merry Christmas - When Samuel was little he called jesus "baby g" - and wanted to celebrate Veronica (Hanukkah) desperately - you can imagine the look on my mothers face -
I'm glad to hear your nephew has his own baby Jesus - Enjoy the day! Peace

Akelly,

Merry Christmas to you too. I think everyone should celebrate Veronica (whoever she is)and I love it that Samuel is all gangsta and calling Jesus, Baby G.

Yeah, poor Sam wanted out of church so badly last year that at one point, Moira threatened him with, "If you don't stop messing around, I'm going to take you outside and then you'll really be in trouble." and Sam resonded by getting really excited, "Outside?!"...Boys get selective hearing at a very early age don't they?

Major Eflat,

Thank you. I love photos and words and since it's my blog, I put them together whether they match or not. You'll probably be more cohesive with yours.

Happy holiday wishes to you and your family too.
