Our crazy family on Christmas Eve!

I was talking to my brother about the poem
The Night Before Christmas, and we
were wondering what kind of people live
in a house where "not a creature was
stirring, not even a mouse." on Christmas
Eve. Our house is madness. We bought
garlands that were supposed to cost $100
today for $5 each, and have decorated
the fireplace, the entrance to the dining room
and the stairs.

The animals say it's bedtime

We've finished wrapping -- because there
are just three of us, but now we're waiting
for Santa Claus, who does come when we're
sleeping. So we'd better get to sleep.

Have a lovely Christmas day. I know we will.

The living room and dining room are my
studio -- so there's been a mad dash to get
as much of my equipment as possible out of
there before we set the table for Christmas
dinner. It's always exciting to see the rooms
transformed, and great to have them switch
back again to regular life. Both are super.

Thanks for being my wonderful friends,
you have made this a great year.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday.
