If you look closely, you might notice:


a) that our five stockings belong to Mitchimus, Theamus, Albus (code name for the little one, mainly because my parents made me swear we wouldn’t name the baby Gandalf), Gunner and J. Sparrow.


b) that our “tree” is, in fact, a Christmas cactus decked out in leftover origami ornaments from last year. Moving provides no incentive whatsoever for setting up a tree only to take it down twelve hours after the holiday is done.

(There is no explaining the Sax Playing Santa.)

Merry Christmas! We’re off to celebrate the holiday several times in quick succession before hopping a plane to Hawaii with my family. I expect to return with lots of stories for you and photos of this year’s homemade gifts, and I wish you all the merriest of Christmases. ‘Til next year!

    Thank you! He’s been with us for five years now and, miraculously, he’s still kicking (I say “he” because we named him Count Duku, in the hopes that giving him a name might shame us into taking care of him – it has).
