Happy Holidays – 2012
Dec 25 2012

Merry Christmas.  Happy Hanukkah.  Joyful Kwanzaa. I hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday season and was able to spend time with people who you like and love and who like and love you right back.

Our Christmas was really nice and peaceful.  Lots of great presents under a small tree.  Tasty lunch at a Japanese restaurant.  An afternoon of putting legos and other toys together, followed by seeing Cirque du Soleil at the movie theater. I wasn’t sure if the kids would enjoy the show, but they did and were fascinated by the flexibility, strength, and costumes of the cast.

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas To All
Dec 25 2010

I hope you are all having a great Christmas Day.  Ours was full of presents and things in our stockings…well at least the kid’s stockings.  They already tangled up their slinky’s that I got from the dollar bins at Michael’s.  Even mom got a gift from Santa (from a very talented cousin) and from the kids (a camera and a tool kit!). :-)  They got some gift cards from Grandma so they will get to buy even more presents!

The kids are surprised that Santa came and gave them more than one gift and ate the cookies/sweet breads we left for him overnight.  My 8 year old kind of knows but wants to believe anyway because he knows if he believes he’ll get presents…smart kid.

The kids got more than they needed/wanted and are already playing with their gifts.  One required some C batteries, which I don’t have.  Most toys don’t seem to use C batteries these days.  The Husky Powertek screwdriver has come in handy to open all these battery compartments!  Now, I have to find some tweezers to get something out that my son got stuck in his new soccer ball that he gets to decorate!

So Merry Christmas to you all.  No matter what religion you might follow, ’tis the season to be jolly, giving, and take some time to enjoy the excitement generated by the children in your lives.  Oh and eat some Japanese food since all the other restaurants are closed.  Our favorite is Kobe steakhouse so we’ll be there later today.  Ho, Ho, Ho!
