Merry Christmas

2003 12 xmasCards.jpg

This is the picture that went out in our Christmas cards this year. The ceramic tree is a family hierloom from my grandmother. The presents themselves are — shh — actually mine but went much better in the picture than his own. It’ll work out in the end. He’s much more likely to enjoy my boxes than I am.

The cards themselves went out late – which should be no surprise given my track record – so don’t get all sad you don’t already have one of your very own. They are in the mail. If you don’t get one, take solace. It’s not that we don’t like you. It’s just that we don’t like you that much – either that or we just don’t have your address. Work with us people. Like many things Christmas, cards were a last minute accomplishment.

And that doesn’t exclude my wife’s presents; the last of which was wrapped last night. I have to say I was quite surprised at the ease of my late season shopping. The lines were reasonable and the stores prepared. Color me impressed. One store was open until midnight. Who shops at midnight? 10:45 pm, well that’s perfectly acceptable but midnight? Sheesh and — ahem – color me lucky.

When Cambell wasn’t posing for Christmas cards, he was nestling up to Santa. And by nestling, I of course mean peeking around the room at all the staring faces before bursting into tears. He was a good enough sport and we got The Picture. I’m sure Santa won’t hold it against him.

I’m finally in the mood for Christmas and, thankfully, I’m not too late; I’ll soon be heading to church. Before I go, I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. The Son of God was born not so long ago and it’s about time I go and celebrate the occasion.
