Christmas report

Wretched excess. That’s a real living blue spruce in a pot. Now to put it somewhere outside and hope it survives.

Adorableness #1.
Adorableness #2.
Sister fell asleep with a pillow over her face, and little brother wrote “I am a butt brain” on it. Some things never change. Luckily.
MY best Xmas present. A very very small
and silent person, who made his presence
felt – his mother could hardly eat
her Xmas dinner. That’s enough, young man – enough with the hormones. Let your mama eat.
