I am amused that blogger posts things in the opposite order that you load them. Silly blogger.
We're big on Christmas. As many of you know because you get cards from us every year. I love stockings. I love having lights hung on something. (For xmas purposes, we just declare that the red abstract sculpture is an abstract rendering of a tree so I that I can just go on and call it a tree.) I love that we have ornaments from N's childhood. I love wrapping presents. I love cookies. (Made a full batch of rugelach for the first time (usually I freeze half the dough) and it went FAST.) We get a ham. We make fancy macaroni and cheese to go with it. There will be at least one present to play with Christmas day. Every year I watch Miracle on 34th Street. I reread Hogfather. (gonna have to get on that! but it takes about 4 hours to read when it's for the umpteenth time) We usually watch Die Hard, but I can probably live if we skip it this year. We're expecting more snow starting tonight, so it will probably even be a white Christmas.
Other than baking cookies, I don't feel like I've been up to much lately. Or at least that's interesting to share. (Interested in the state of Vlad's bowels? Much improved. Even that is TMI.) I declare that the pictures make up for my lack of words. Happy Holidays to all of you! I hope you all have traditions you enjoy as much as we do ours.
