Merry Merry

Despite how they look in this photo, The cheer is flowing over here. We're ready for the big day. 

How do I know? 

Well, we've engaged in the usual traditions:
  • We put up the tree and all of the ornaments. All of them. Even though every year I remind the family that we don't need every single one. "We do," they say, even though there aren't enough spaces and not all of them are very attractive.
  • We planned a holiday outing. However talented the dancers in The Nutcracker undoubtedly were, it was not particularly enjoyable, as you can see above. All tippy-toes; no talking. Lots of leaps; loose storyline. I don't know. It just wasn't for us. Dan liked it okay.
  • I finished my shopping at the last minute, visiting the Mall of America, Target, and Dick's Sporting Goods on Christmas Eve Eve. I didn't even hyperventilate at any of these locations.
  • We baked cookies and decorated them. They taste good, and I ate lots of dough and broken pieces.
  • Teddy, for his part, ate 8 oz of dark chocolate and cheerfully vomited in the back room of the emergency vet's office to the tune of 227 dollars. He's so dumb, but it looks like he'll live for another Nativity.
Let's do this. I suggest we keep our expectations low, and then we can all exceed them.

I'm all over that.

Happy Christmas Eve, Kace.
