So, this is Christmas!

Well, then. Christmas has finally arrived, and boy are we excited.

Here's what it looks like when a little boy, who is discovering the real joys of Christmas just this year, and a little girl, who is only interested in eating the ornaments, see the presents for the first time. Memorable quotes from the day include:

"Boy, there aren't a lot of presents!"

"I wanted the barn, but..." (said in a tone of voice which indicated he wasn't aware he'd spoken aloud, in reference to the Word World Dog's House we bought him, instead of the barn which it turns out is what he really wanted).

Watch this space for a small slide show, coming soon. UPDATE: and here it is.

Who needs Syrup of Ipecac?


...when you can give your son some of a "Word World" cookie with colored gel on it and watch him vomit green stuff? He only ate the I and the E.

The second-littlest elf.

Aizay is getting excited for Christmas. He begged us for a week (or so) to put up the tree, and we finally got around to it. It's a new tree, by the way...pre-lit and everything.
