Merry Christmas!

If your in the mood to send a Christmas card, send one to the ALCU.

In other news, I don't remember politics encroaching on christmas this much in the past... I can say with a large degree of certainty I don't like this new primary schedule.

And I have a question for ya'll. Anybody else doing 'White Elephant' gift exchanges this year?
It's where everybody brings a gift, and then everybody draws a number. Number 1 picks a present, then 2, and 3, and so on. But every time you go, there is a chance to 'steal' somebody else's gift, and they pick a new one.

So far, I've received 2 pumpkins and some kool-aid.

Yeah, and I got a "High School Musical" pack that includes lip gloss, glitter, nail polish, and some other stuff. Just what I've always wanted! :)

For the past several years, we haven't focused on gifts among the adults, but we all try to get stuff for the kids in the family. Our main focus is on providing a huge dinner.

In my present mood, I could easily serve up Ex-Lax Brownies. Or maybe taking Feen-a-Mint laxative gum and pretending they're Chiclets.

Just kidding. I love family get togethers. Really I do.

Yeah, I do ok on the Elephant exchange. Got a Pirates Carrib DVD last yr and got my own gift back cuz the two good ones I wanted were taken from me. One was a glass chess piece, it was indeed nice!

We're doing it both at my folks and Inklemama's this year. Last year the gift everyone kept stealing was (this is sad) carmel korn.
