Have a holly, jolly Christmas.

Christmas time is the time to be with your family.

A time of giving, and sharing.  (and loving, and receiving…please tell me someone remembers this line from Friends).

It’s the time for a self-proclaimed bibliophile to be presented with a Kindle…and kind of fall in love with it.  (Lord, have mercy.)

It’s a time to eat good food, and to be with the people that you adore, and to celebrate, of course, the birth of our Lord.  No matter what I sometimes think about the Church as a body of laws, the spirituality of the day always gets to me.  Plus, our new priest managed to use the words “flash mob” “Youtube” and “Facebook” in his homily.  I like this guy.

It’s also a time to exchange presents, no matter how…odd.

Never underestimate the power of a good gimmick shirt.  (Hands off, ladies.  That’s my little brother.)

There are many pictures from the night that I would love to show you.  However, my little Lovebug is incognito from the interwebs as a whole.  You won’t ever see his face on here in respect for my sister’s privacy.  Plus, she may have threatened to disembowel me if I ever posted pictures of him.  I like my bowels right where they are, thank you.

Anyway.  You might wonder what I got up to on this Christmas Eve.

Well.  I’m not quite sure how I got from this…

To this…

But I’m pretty sure alcohol was involved.

[[no, that is not Dad, but a childhood friend my mom suckered into playing Santa.  again, alcohol may have been involved.  he also probably lost 20 pounds in that suit.  he’s about five feet smaller in real

A very merry Christmas to you and yours, from me and mine.

A note to all intrepid elves: Strapping yourself into a onesie after a huge serving of Nonna’s Cake is probably not the best move.  Those buttons were in grave peril.  Proceed at your own risk.
