I love these pictures.  Tonight, the Bret Favre Chili relative-to-be, and my niece bought me an Onyx Scrabble Board.  I love Scrabble.  I had gotten him a new dictionary, and wrote, “Welcome to the family” on the inside.  Since we won’t be here at Christmas, we exchanged gifts with them tonight.  I had to take the inagural picture of our first game.

First word?  LAUGH

Santa Watch:

  • Miss Morgan, in shadow above, on her way following her cousin (Gymnotes #1) to the Nutracker in Thousand Oaks.
  • The Russian Dancers.  Best part of the show.
  • Better yet:  watching my wineyard sister trying to look alive and excited for her granddaughter.
  • Nephew barbecuing steaks.
  • Boys playing Pirates of the Caribbean for Wii.
  • Sitting by the fire with my Mom and sister, discussing our family.
  • Cupcake niece showed up, but she was “gone” shortly thereafter.  Not physically, you understand.
  • Gymnotes #2 and I doing Yoga on FitTV together.
  • My parents’ church.  We sat next to a guy who’s been on Law and Order a lot.  Apparently.  Don’t watch it.
  • Drinking.  Lots of it.  None of that by me.

I will keep warm with that black Onyx Scrabble board this winter.  I have no need for any drama.

3 days.  Going back home to drop off boys, and my family is begging me to come back. 

$$$$$$$$$$$  Need I say more? $$$$$$$$$$$$$

  1. Your countdown reminds me of my kids. Except they keep subtracting too many days like every night knocks off 2 more days.

  2. I have a post card from Thousand Oaks… It was sent to me from a kid that I talked to over ham radio a few years ago.

    It’s a photo of a freeway with two mountains in the background and what appears to be a golf course on the left hand side. On the right hand side there appears to be a shopping mall or plaza with a red roof.

    Between the mountains in the background there are towers which I assume is the power grid. I wish I could read the exit sign on the freeway but it’s too far away.
